I finished in 6th place in my gym with 4795 MEPs. 5th place was about 150 ahead of me and 1st place was 6200+ I missed a good part of one week with the Hubs in the hospital. I felt that was a respectable finish all things considered.

This month they are doing a bracket style gym against gym challenge with combined totals for each gym. People were going hard already on the first day. 233 was 10th place and the top 2 were 500+ Dayum. I have to go quite hard to get 200 in an hour. They must be doing 2 hard ones to get those numbers. I put in a respectable 259.

Danís workout for this week:

1 circuit x 4
1000M row
1 minute plank
KB swings (26#) - 12
Renegade rows (10#) - 10 each side

The row is between 5.5 & 6 minutes. Add in the rest of the set and it runs about 10 mins per set.

Iíve had to switch everything around at the gym. I moved my Training sessions with Dan to Thursdayís since I have competition next Sat and then will be out of town 2weeks later. I also changed my rest day from Sunday to Friday. I am just way too beat physically and mentally. I am also trying to find the sweet spot as to the time of night.

In two weeks, I move to a new schedule. 7:00-3:30 with Monday and Saturday off. I plan to go straight to the gym after work. My skating schedule will switch around to Thursday nights in May and Tuesdays and Thursday nights over the summer. Still trying to decide which day to take as the rest day.

Danís Workout for this week

Circuit 1 x 2
Russian leg ext 10x10 w/10 sec rest in between (30#)
250M row - medium pace
Back extension (25#) x 12
Goblet side squats (15#)
250M row - medium pace

Circuit 2 x 3
Barbel bicep cheat curl (35#) x 12
Bicep drag curl (35#) x10
Bicep resistance band curls (out) (5#) x 10 each

Circuit 3 x 3
Incline Cable SA row (50#) x 10
Straight arm press down (60#) x 10

April 2019 Recap

3346 MEPS
1496 Minutes
68% Effort
9694 Calories
127 BPM Average Heart Rate

Not the best month of exercise but not horrible either. Adjusting to the new work schedule threw me off a few days. Then there were 2 days that my belt didnít record.

I competed in a national skating event with my team. In our event and age group it was just us. We had to skate against the book. That does not guarantee an automatic first place. You have to score 80% to get first. Any penalty such as a timed penalty can drop you down into 2nd. An example, we saw a beautiful program set to this song https://youtu.be/Ehm4HLnr-FQ They had the bird wings & everything. Forgot one of their props on the ice and got knocked to last due to the time penalty.

We ended up first. We did awesome. Lots of positive feedback on our grogram and our dresses. This also was the first completely clean program weíve done as a group.

Plan for May:
Skate Thursday night
Gym 5-6 days per week

Congratulations Renee! Awesome is good. First place is good. And it's nice that you don't have to explain to anyone that you finished in 2nd place in your group of one. That is an interesting scoring method, but I suppose it makes sense. They don't want to give a first place to a lame performance.

Thanks Ken! I just found out that a friend of mine took a video of our competition. Here it is if anyone is interested. I am the one in green. You only get to see the end of my jump & hydro blade, but am doing the same as the pink gal. https://youtu.be/AQQm6hdd2Js

Pretty stellar month. I did a workout 26 of the 31 one days. I also did 3 double days where I worked out in the am & skated in the pm.

Trainer Dan has shifted my workouts to be more HIIT style while still getting the weight training in. I am trying to be more efficient with my time as I hope to be back at work by summerís end.

Watched your video. So fun. I really was jonesing for some skating and could feel the cool air in the rink when I watched ha! Last time I was on skates I crashed hard and broke clavicle - need to get back out - perhaps this summer at an open skate. I skateboard sometimes at the Roseville Oval - I go inside after session and watch folks - perhaps I'll check there sched.

Continue to have an outstanding summer Renee!

I have been killing it so far this month. My trainer added in more HIIT with strength training so itís pretty easy to get my 200 MEPs in in 50-80 mins. We have a hiking vacation coming up the end of the month. Iíve been doing some stair climbing and incline treadmill stuff. I started with my light backpack that I use for short hikes and mid last week switched to my full pack. I want to be used to it by the time we get out West.

Last week I did 1400 stairs with the light pack. I am doing mile walks with the big pack. 1 mile = 20 mins if I go with incline. 1 mile = 17:30 if I go for flat. The past 2 weekend I also did Saturday hikes. Different state parks. Trying to find anything with much of a hill is kinda tough. I did a 3.5 mile hike with decent hills along the bank of the St. Croix river, by the bluffs. I donít want to die the way I did in Montana last summer. So I am training for it. I get some looks in the gym but I donít care.

Also I am up to twice a week at the rink. Now that we are not running programs I am actually getting 180-230 MEPs in per skate. Working hard on my problem elements.

Not sure what it was today. I went into the gym and did a number of functional exercises for skating. Then I did a mile hike with my fully loaded backpack. Left the gym 2 hours later. The time flew by. I was consistently in the yellow zone (80% Heart Rate) except the couple time I pushed it up to red (90%) or let it go down to green (70%). I didnít even know I went that long until I checked my stats in the car. 1046 calories burned...almost 400 MEPs- 390. Probably the most Iíve ever gotten in 1 setting.

Tonight I went to group lessons at the rink. Instead of skating with the adults, I skated with the kids at my level. 15 mins of power. 10 minutes of working on back 3 turns. 10 mins of sit spins. 10 minutes of jumps: loop, half loop, & flip. I was shocked when I looked at my app & saw 21 minutes in the red. I was pretty happy with my practice- not just from an exercise stance but an improvement stance. I think I am going to do the group class with the kids the rest of the summer & see how many elements I can get to passing status.

I should be dead tired right now, but I feel full of energy.
