Workout Wednesday #13

Good morning folks!! I'm back up and online at home.....finally!! Woohoo!! Today is Wednesday, which means we're halfway through this work week.....thankfully!! Monday, my Pathways group was scheduled for speedwork at the track. I used to be intimidated by speedwork, so I gave my group a little peptalk before the run. I told them that we didn't expect them to be Olympic athletes but we did expect them to do the best that they could do. I challenged them to step out of their comfort zone and push themselves just a little bit to see what they were capable of. They were AMAZING!! It was hot and humid but there was very little complaining! I was so impressed with them and I think some of them even surprised themselves! After the run, I went was scheduled to do Focus T25 cardio. Since we had done speedwork, I opted to do Insanity upper body strength training instead. Recently, I posted my thoughts about my Insanity workout. I was asked by a reader to post pics. I have been a little hesitant to do so because I'm not where I want to be, but I've come to the realization that "progress is progress, no matter how small" So, here ya go! Before and after Insanity:
So, today is Workout Wednesday!! I've been trying to incorporate more strength training to my workout regimen lately. One thing that I've been doing and really find effective is a kettlebell workout. I don't have a kettlebell at home, so I use a 20 lb dumb bell. So, that's what I have for you today. Try it out and let me know what you think! I'm also doing a 30 day plank challenge. It's not too late to get in on that! That's all I've got for now! Have a wonderful day!!
