I MADE IT THROUGH WEEK 1!!!!! I’ve done really well with the meal plans; my husband has taken it upon himself to cook breakfast, make luch, and do suppers using the menus provided by the Roller Derby Workout Challenge. What a derby hero; let’s all pat him on the back. Honestly, I wouldn’t have been able (or willing) to stick it through without his help. I’m a kitchen nightmare… he manages to make sweet potato look appealing.
Okay enough of that. Here’ the workout plan for this week; I had no problems last week so I’m looking forward to conquering week two.
Sunday: 10 pushups, 30 second plank (no resting in between), REPEAT 10 TIMES!
Monday: Day off
Tuesday: Roller Derby Practice
Wednesday: Roller Derby Workout Video
30 second squat static hold
10 star jumps
30 second plank
Repeat 5 times
Rest for 5 minutes and grab some water
Repeat 5 more times
Saturday: Roller Derby Practice
I think I’m set.
Also had a great derby practice today. I did 23 laps in 5 minutes. I’m just TWO laps short of meeting the minimum skills requirement. My 23 felt pretty controlled and solid, which is a huge improvement over my last (hungover) 25 in 5. Two weeks really doesn’t seem like enough time to gain another 2 laps so despite being really happy with my performance today, I’m really nervous for the BIG DAY. I’ve promised myself something huge when I do pass; so either new skates or a new tattoo…. I was really thinking skates for a while but now I’m teetering towards tattoo…. my skates are still pretty new so IF I can actually manage to pass in them, maybe I’ll hang on to them for a while longer. Hmm.. but then does that mean I should by myself new skates if I don’t pass? So tattoo if I pass, and new skates if I don’t? I think I’ve just had a moment.
