Woo hoo! I did it!
Day 11 of the 21 Day Kettlebell Swing Challenge was 20 minutes long and represents the longest workout in the program. There are two 20 minute days and this day was five minutes and four sets longer than the previous longest workout of fifteen minutes.
I was excited because I didn’t dwell on it, I ate a banana and I knew I could do it.
I slept a little later this a.m. because I woke up in the middle of the night and couldn’t sleep for about an hour. I knew it was important not to go into this workout tired.
By the time we got back from walking, it was 9:00 a.m. Later AND warmer than I’m used to.
I took a whole gallon of water out with me and a towel so I could wipe my sweaty brow without ruining my grip.
After the third set, I was hot. In my one minute of active rest, I ran in the house and swapped my t shirt for a sleeveless shirt.
After set seven, my feet were hot. I remembered that one of the best things about training with Jaime is that he said it’s actually better for your grip to do the swings barefoot. How could I forget? I love that!
After set nine, I was in familiar territory as the fifteen minute day has nine sets.
It was a fabu, strong workout. I did seventeen swings in each 30 second set except for the first one where I had to start the timer, put it down and get over to the kettlebell.
This is the hump. The halfway of the 21 Day Challenge and I’m so excited to have done it so well!
Virtually high fiving you!
