112th workout of the year, 11/13/2011.

Music: None. Sweat-Shirt: Burgundy.

T-Shirt: That’s What She Said.

We are still doing the outdoor, playground workouts.

This is not a complaint. These have been great conditioning sessions.

Today was one of the best ones.

We went to a different playground today.

It had more things to play on, plus there were a bunch of big rocks to play with as well.

And play we did!

First: Warm Up

We don’t always do a warm up. Today we did because it was the way up to the playground.

It was a jog up a long hill.

One of these days that hill will become part of the workout!

Second: Stairs/Steps

Running stairs are always a great conditioning exercise.

Since they were there, we used them.

25 times, up and down.

Third: Playground Piece 1

Climb up a Chain Ladder.

Get over it.

Run 25 Yards.

Repeat this 6 times.

Fourth: Playground Piece 2

Climb up big slide.

Slide down.

Run 25 yards.

Repeat this 6 times.

Oh and this slide was fast.

Well, at least the first few times for some reason!

Fifth: Balance Walk

The playground was surrounded by big PVC pipes.

It looked like a perfect place to cool down a bit while “working” on balance.

It had to be at least 50 yards if not more.

Sixth: Balance Walk with a rock.

There were plenty of rocks to play with.

For this exercise, we grabbed a rock, and held it as we did our little balance walk for about 25 yards.

Then we repeated it again. Some of us holding the rock overhead.

Rocks, great workout equipment!

Seventh: Through The Swings

We grabbed the swings and hopped through the chains.

We did it again but hopping forward and backward.

While not the hardest thing we’ve ever done, it is harder than it looks.

Eighth: Playground Piece 3

Climb up a Chain Ladder.

Get over it.

Run 25 Yards.

Climb up a Chain Ladder.

Then go up the first ladder.

Repeat this 6 times.

Ninth: Core/Abs

Seated Leg Raises on Swings 6 x 20

Seated Rock Twists 6 Reps Each Rock

Seated Leg Raises Rock Overhead 10 Reps Each Rock
