On Thursday night my PT asked me what I had planned for the weekend. I think he is getting used to our big smashup weekend adventures!
I said I wasn't sure - that for once I had nothing planned - maybe a run or something.

Well, apparently that wasn't good enough. He told me to go find one. And report back next week.

Enter my twitter buddy Rell, of Frichot Fitness.
Never one to shy away from creating a challenge she said she was onto it! And would send it through Saturday night so I didn't have time to stress about it.

Enter the challenge.
7.5km run. Then a tabata workout.

Saturday night was spent alternating between salt baths, skins, and the foam roller. I was still suffering badly with DOMS from PT, and had no idea how I was going to run.

All my hard work paid off - I felt much better, but still had a lot of glute pain when I started.

It wasn't an awesome run. But it wasn't a bad one either. I needed 7.5km and that's what I did.

Of course I had to wear my Perth crew hat to support the Perth girls in their fun runs this morning!
This is the end of the run. It was HOT by the time I finished. I was kind of glad to stop.

While waiting for my lift home I found a new toy in the playground! Perfect for chin ups. So in between stretching I did sets of jumping chins. What shocked me was I could control the lower down movement way better than I ever have before. Maybe I'm getting stronger?! The cin up goal could be in sight!

Tabata was hard. It was hot. It tested me. Those jump squats straight after the run ? They were cruel.

This is me at the end. SO ready for a shower! Check that sweat!

Rell, thank you so much for an awesome challenge! I can't wait to see what you have planned for week four!
