Mileage counter

Does anyone who reads my blog do tabata workouts? In case you don't know what they are it's a workout which consists of 20s work 10s rest for 8 repeats or 4 minutes... Sounds easy right? Try it ;-)

The workout we did today consisted of 4 minutes of each exercise, 20s work, 10s rest and no rest in between except for the 10 seconds..

20 minutes of hell! We nearly moved our rest day forward as we'd walked about 6 miles today but Mike twisted my arm into a workout at the last minute! I'm glad he did really but I hated him during it! I felt like I was going to be sick at least three times and at one point I shouted at him if I'm sick you're cleaning it... He wasn't too happy at that proposal!! Luckily I wasn't sick though haha

Oh, and I managed 42 push-ups in the tabata push-up section, bring back the weekly totals! I miss doing those! I'm sad to have had to leave my job but i'm happy to have more time and energy to blog and train. No more excuses! I'm back!!


  1. I love to hate Tabata's. They suck when I am doing them, but they are a great workout.

  2. I have never heard of them and think I'll pretend I still haven't!

  3. I love tabata but it totally kicks my arse! Great workout though and I totally recommend it!

  4. I've never heard of tabata, sounds like a really good workout - I might try and give it ago!

  5. I just found your blog through Never Home Maker and saw the word Tabata and almost cried. Do you do Crossfit? I saw Burpees in there somewhere, too. I work with a personal trainer once a work doing Crossfit and tabatas kick my butt!! (especially the squars) (owie)
