Amy’s Week 2 Challenge – check! (pic heavy)

This morning we got an email from our Booty Camp trainer, Heather, saying she had an injury so tonight’s Booty camp class would be cancelled.  It is definitely crappy that she has an injury but hopefully we’ll see her Thursday. 

The Haliblogger ladies still wanted to kick some booty …arse?? so we decided to get together and Lynn had the great idea to take advantage of our get-together and complete Amy’s Week 2 Exercise Challenge as a group!  Even though it was her idea, she was unable to join us tonight.  (Rest up, girl!)  So that left myself, farmgirl, and Angie

I was running a little late – traffic traffic traffic AND construction!  But these awesome ladies waited for me and then we were off!


Of course we took photos of our afternoon in the park!  Boy oh boy were we ready to kick butt!  You can see our toughness below:

We jogged for 5 minutes

Here are a couple (of several) furry friends that wanted to join us:

Time to move on… more jogging!

06-04-2009 011

We found a nice spot out of the way with a bunch of benches… but oh no…. we couldn’t use them….

Nearby there was a gazebo with a few more benches, where we did a few sets of tricep dips. (No pics from me, Angie should have some tough)

More jogging (here is where I was slowing down… A LOT… damn that cardio!!)  This time there was an incline and I had a rough go at it.  I can’t wait for the day where I can jog more comfortably.

We ended up at another bench where we did some squats.  (Excuse my form below… this was DEFINITELY a photo op!)

Oooh movement:

We were right near this tower thingy so we jogged up there and found an awesome area out of the way where we did some ab work.  Several crunches , reverse crunches – oh yes.  Ab work is what I love!

Oh and Heather would be proud – we even did some downward dog pushups.  (Heck yes we did!!!)

More jogging & photo ops (seriously this park is beautiful!)

OMGOMGOMG – someone save that girl….

Now for the last stretch (which was uphill) we did some walking lunges:

I was sweating like a madwoman after this!! Even though we didn’t have an official booty camp class, these 2 ladies definitely had me working!

I was so icky and sticky and hungry so off I went to Booster Juice for a protein packed smoothie & panini.
