Now, don't faint anyone, but I did two things today I rarely do:
1. Trained at home (see post below)
2. Trained in the morning (I prefer after work)

Seriously!?! Mother Nature gave me a window of opportunity today to get in my training. I was not going to be able to do it after work because I have a meeting at work and then a school board meeting after that. What was I to do?

Enter Mother Nature - more blizzard conditions. My college was opening two hours late. Here was my chance to do my training!!! It was in the cards!!


My training was determined by a deck of cards:
Hearts - snatches w/ 16 kg
Diamonds - rows w/ 12 kg
Clubs - Burpees
Spades - Mountain Climbers

You do the number on the card. Face cards are 10. Aces are 11. Do the deck as quickly as you can. Brad prescribed half the deck. I did 32 cards.

Here's the best part:
The cards have burial vaults on them. They were freebies from the vault company my husband uses at our funeral homes. Is that hilarious or what??? The cards of doom! Loved the symbolism!!

Well, I survived just fine - no need to use the burial vault just yet. :-)

What a fun work-out! And you even did it at home. I think we get your weather shortly after it hits you. Everytime you write about a blizzard, one hits us the next day!

Maybe I'll grow into a home trainer, who knows! BTW - It was relatively warm and sunny today. Enjoy!!
