I'm over half way! Today's 400 swings put me at 5,200!
Today I had to break it up. Monday's are late nights. The kids have music lessons then orchestra practice in a city that's over an hour a way. We get back around 10:00 at night. So on Tuesday morning we all sleep in a bit. I also like to practice yoga on Tuesday. After my long Monday's, I need it. So today, in between teaching the kids, I did kettlebell swings. I did 100 at a time, then I did some negative chin-ups on my bar.
For my swings, I've been doing 15 secs on/ 15 off. 1st 10 two handed swings, followed by 10 TR swings, followed by 5 R/5L. I do 3 rounds like that, then finish with 10 more 2h swings. That makes 100 in 5 minutes. I had been wanting to do more 1 handed swings in order to improve my grip. This month, because I'm doing high volume and coming off an injury, I'm sticking to 12kg. When I do heavy swings, I use 20kg. Someday, I would like to repeat the 10,000 swings using my 16kg, or at least putting it into the mix. But I have a hard time with the grip for 1 handed swings with the 16kg. So right now I'm trying to increase the number of 1 handed swings in order to improve that grip.
And I did get that yoga done. I had a lovely practice using YogaGlo.com. It was a practice with Jason Crandell called Yin & Yang. It was a perfect practice for someone who does a lot of other exercising.
And my lovely day at home was topped off with a pasta dinner. I topped my pasta with a mixture of roasted eggplant and peppers which were picked from my garden. And of course, a nice glass of red wine. :)
