January Jumpstart Day 15: Fitness Survey + Pro Compression giveaway

Welcome to day 15! This morning I did 20 minutes of treadmill intervals, arms, wall crawls (you don’t want to know!) and the sauna.

I have been busy with January Jumpstart stuff and completely let this month’s Fitness Survey sneak up. We have just a few questions this month.

fitness survey

  1. What part of your body do you want to work on the most? Definitely the area that needs the most work is my core.  But I want arms with definition. 
  2. Favorite and least favorite part of your workout? Least favorite: core (see above). Most favorite: arms, I love how they are starting to look. 
  3. What is your favorite fitness class to attend? I’ve only attended a few classes. My favorite is probably Nike Training Club and 2nd would be Spin, even though it kicked my booty!
  4. Do you have a favorite smoothie recipe? Yes, at home I use chocolate protein powder with frozen bananas, strawberries, sometimes cherries and PB2. My favorite to buy is the Lean 1 Strawberry at Smoothie King….YUMMY!
  5. Favorite place to run? (trails, track, streets, treadmill, etc) Favorite place is the road. I’m starting to tolerate the treadmill. I really want to try trail running but I’m so scared I’ll get injured then can’t run at all. 🙁
  6. Share a picture of your race bling!

I’m so excited Pro Compression is back on board with us this year. They have some great compression socks. I love them! I wear them during long runs but mostly for recovery. Either the day of and/or the day after. They really help my legs feel better. Compression gear is a great asset to your “workout closet”. They aren’t just for runners!

    Yesterday, Tuesday, Jan. 14th I posted I ran 4 miles doing speed work; well the day was so beautiful when I got home yesterday afternoon that I decided to run 2 miles…. 2 turned into 3 and I PR’d, one of my fastest 3 miles ever!! So, my total miles ran yesterday was 7

    Today, Wed Jan 15th I got up at 5am and went to the gym. I worked out on the machines concentrating on Abs and Arms; I did my squats holding a 10 lb medicine ball out to get core and leg workout. Then I looked at the time and found 5 minutes to soak in the hot tub, one of my guilty pleasures. Much more fun when someone is with me, but that 5 minute soak felt fabulous!

    The parts of my body I want to work on the most is my abs/core and arms. My kids think my arms are jiggly, so that’s high on my list

    Least favorite part of a workout is being overwhelmed by the machines and deciding which one to use and which ones I know how to use; Favorite part is after I am done, feeling accomplished

    Favorite smoothie: I use chocolate protein powder with water and 1 bananna and blend in the blender until frothy; I was using vanilla protein powder with the bananna and water but ran out and have a ton of chocolate still to use

    Favorite place to run: I love running through Harry Myers, I believe a route we run that I really enjoyed is called Midnight Pass. Least favorite would be Ralph Hall hands down.

    Oh my! Today is so rest day with a lil ab work.. Yesterday about kicked my butt! Thank goodness for my compression pants and sleeves!
    This girl had a massive leg day and 3 mile interval run on the dreadmill! Leg day consisted of 3 sets each of : weighted sqauts, leg press, leg curls, box jumps, calf raises, lunges, wall sits, side kick lunges, burpees.

    Today is a rest day on the legs. So tonight will be my p90x ab workout dvd.

    My new workout this month is the kettle bell squat lift. Love it..

  3. Eliza Klinger says:

    I love Compression socks, unfortunately I only have one pair….so I would love to have another pair! I did workout today, yet felt quite sluggish because I worked an 8 hour graveyard shift prior to my workout. Because of that I didn’t run, but lifted weights and had a fun workout with a weighted hula hoop. Tomorrow, I’ll run 🙂

  4. fitnessmomwinecountry says:

    I LOVE my pairs of Pro Compression and I love the pink. Fitness survey is so fun, great read 🙂

  5. Betsy says:

    I did a couple laps on my stairs, but no workout besides that. I have wanted to have a pair of compression stockings, but haven’t had the budget yet.

  6. Megan says:

    Would love to try them

  7. SonTurtle says:

    Yesterday was a rest day. Tonight I will do Body Pump and Zumba. I Love my compression socks. I don’t like my belly/waist area. My least favorite exercise is lunges, used to love them but my knees are so bad now, that sometimes I can do them, sometimes i can’t, depends on how much I have been running and working out. I do squats instead when I can’t do the lunges. I love any exercises with arms and planks. My favorite workouts are usually BodyPump and Chisel although for the last 3 months I have been doing Team Traing Boot Camp so I miss thoses classes. My favorite fruit smoothie is frozen peaches, unsweetend Almond Milk, spinanch and agave syrup to sweeten sometimes some greek yogurt, If I have it. Taste’s like fresh peach ice cream, although looks yuck. I love running outside if the weather is not to cold or wet. Then I just cant warm up afterwards.

  8. I worked out today for the first time in almost 3 weeks. I dragged my butt to the treadmill to at least get a walk in. I ended up doing a 2:2 run/walk interval for about 40 minutes and felt pretty good. Glad to be getting back to it!! I love my procompression socks!! And I tried to link up, but it’s not working, when i click to link up it says “collection closed”.

  9. I did rebounding today! So far, compression socks dig into my thick calves, but I really like the idea of them! 🙂

  10. Jessica T says:

    Ran 3 miles. I usually wear Swiftwick compression socks or Zensah sleeves.

  15. Jennifer says:

    No workout today. Still can barely move from working out two days ago. Got my alarm set for 4am so I can get 4 miles in before work, and then have a 12 mile long run planned for Saturday.

  16. YES…I went to Zumba this evening! Aaaand…I’m currently wearing my compression socks right now and my legs are feeling good!

  22. MaryBeth says:

    No workout today… loooong car ride! I’m planning on running in the am tomorrow with compression socks on!

  23. Today was a rest day for me! I wear sleeves more than socks, but only because the compression socks I have are too big for me. They were suppose to be a one size fits all.

  24. Ben J says:

    I didn’t work out today, but I wore my PRO Compression socks on an 8-mile run yesterday.

  25. Tami says:

    I love compression socks. They’re expensive but worth it! Would love another pair! I ran 10 miles today and wore my socks. Ready for another run!

  29. Jennifer says:

    I wear compression socks after my long runs.

  30. Rachel says:

    I ran 4 miles on the treadmill today. I wear compression socks if I’m doing over 10 miles. No new workouts yet this month. I so need to start crosstraining!

  31. Today I worked on the core and stretched a bunch. I wore compression socks yesterday. The family and I ran a 5K yesterday, I did a 12 miler to the race and they met me in the car. I ran the 5K with my youngest son, it was a donut dash and we dressed in costume. Had a great time. I rode in the car home and luckily I did as the winds really picked up.
