Holiday Intervals

I've been doing some hardcore intervals these days.  Really pushing myself to the limits.  The frigid cold outside has forced me to be a bit creative and non-traditional with my workouts.  Just to give you an idea, here's what I've accomplished today:

Party endurance challenge - arrived home at 6am
5 hour power nap
Nutritious & delicious breakfast (aka christmas cookies & fudge)
Stair repeats x4
5 meter intervals - alternating couch-to-fridge and couch-to-bathroom
30 minute recovery on lazy boy in between intervals

Phew.  Now that's the holiday spirit.  What've you been up to?


  1. That sounds like a solid plan to me! Now you're back in New Orleans and I am here in Cleveland...I think you got the better end of the deal. It's cold here!

  2. I've been eating cookies for 3 weeks straight, so this morning I changed it up with cinnamon rolls. Nothing like healthy eating.

  3. Geez, make sure to stretch there, Killer. Don't wanna pull a muscle!


  4. I have been going exactly like Gracie - it's unreal. I switched mine up to coffee cake. Although I love the holidays and all the food that goes with it, I honestly can't wait until all the EAT FESTS end!!! I am going to have amazing biceps (lifting the food to my mouth . . .repeat).

  5. Jeez you'd better take it easy. You don't want to hurt yourself with such an intensive program.

  6. I think you are ready for a taper.

  7. I am with TRI, you are ready for a taper.
    Happy New Year.

  8. Take it easy there - wouldn't want to pull a muscle! A few bixep curls with cookies should help. *Bicep. My phone isn't letting me go back to edit
