I understood plyometric to mean you were pushing so hard your hands go up in the air at the end of the rep.

Ah I see - well, I was getting my hands off the mat anyway. I bet I didn't look like yer woman in the picture though.

I assure you, I never met that woman in my life.

Any thought on working your way up to Hindo/Dive-Bomber push-ups?  They're a favorite, and almost always a part of my workout warm-up repertoire.  ;)

Yesterday's gym visit did not happen, as I had a panic about Christmas presents and spent an hour wandering around the shops instead.  Then was too busy at work to go later.  

 

However, today was better - ran for 15 mins, stopped off at playground to do push-ups, squats, inverted rows and negative pull-ups, ran home again.  

 

I have however blotted my copybook by eating two chocolate biscuits this afternoon.  

 

My husband commented on how ace my arms are looking at the moment so I guess that was nice.

Tried the dive-bomber push-ups but I definitely don't get my nose nearly close enough to the ground!

 

They're a blast though, right?  Even if you can't do the full range of motion, it might be something new and exciting to add into your routine. 

 

You could always do progressions or whatever version works for you.

Still just chugging on here but failing to post much! One run (on dreadmill) and two strength workouts so far this week. Have more or less abandoned any attempt to eat clean, and appear to have lost 1 lb, so must keep an eye on protein intake and not lose my teeny and very hard-won gains! Went to the pantomime with the older two boys yesterday, which was a laugh, as always.

Don't sweat the attendance much.  Lots of folks will be taking something of a holiday break over the course of the week and we'll more than likely return to our spritely and enthusiastic regularly schedule programming next week in anticipation for the next challenge cycle starting the week after!

 

Merry Christmas, OPM!

7.52km isn't a short run, it's a full on Ranger Reconnoiterâ„¢!

 

For some reason, that looks like a really cool route too.  Maybe it's the cool roundabout at the top, all the twists and turns, or the green space, but it just looks pleasant.
