Hiit Mama workouts are timed so time yourself and go as FAST AS YOU CAN!! That is how you get the cardio in. If you are a new Hiit Mama, just start with the workout of the day (WOD)...no need to go back to the first post because we will eventually repeat all those workouts. Make sure and post your time in the comment section so you can track your progress! Also, there are video demos of each exercise we do down the right side bar.

"My name is Dasha ( I am Russian) and my way to fitness is a long story - from being half a pound short of 200 lb at my heaviest the day I went in labor with my youngest (of three) child to being 119 lb after 2 rounds of HCG and completing P90X 2 years later and capturing the crown of Mrs. Alaska United States 2012. In short, I have been addicted to HIIT since September. I now have found an affiliate at Elmendorf AFB and do WODs there 3 times a week and twice a week a follow the WODs from your blog. Here I do a 195 lb. deadlift PR. I would have never thought that I could lift a weight equal to the weight of my husband and that of my son combined! It is because of your blog I got hooked on HIIT and I see myself doing this for the rest of my life!"

Total time : 19:19 inc 2 breaks
I have no idea my lap times..that felt SO good after spending 38 hours of the weekend with no power! we had a massive winter storm, as I'm sure everyone in the north east is aware of! I think I broke most of the challenge rules! I ran out of decaf coffee so I caved and drank the real stuff! boredom set in after the first 12 hours so I caved and drank beer for entertainment! lol I am so glad that weekend is behind me and I can get back to real life!

Then ran 3 miles

Kirsten said...

Dasha's story is so inspiring, isn't it? And Gina--without power for 38 hours, that would be so so hard!
I don't have a place to run right now, so I did aerobic stuff (jumping jacks, run in place, anything I could think of to change it up) for five minute intervals and rested two minutes between.

Jen Morse said...

I actually did 4 sprints, but when I started for my first rest my garmin hadn't picked up the gps, so I just started over. Continued on to do a total of 5 miles, in about 47 mins :)
Since me and Gina live in the same place, I also was without power for 38 hours, which was basically the whole weekend. We had a helluva blizzard!!
So I broke all the rules, except eating after 8 and drinking soda! It's hard to be very disciplined when life pretty much stops for 2 days!
Making up for it today!! :)
Good luck everyone

I didn't trespass on the HS track by jumping the fence today. I ran on the middle school track which isn't as nice but atleast I wasn't breaking any rules.

Glad to hear that Gina and Jen (and anyone else) have their power back. Glad to hear you survived!

Kate Huether said...

13:48 including 2 breaks. Laps were 3:16, 3:16, and 3:15. Seemed a little fast so I measured it out and each lap was a little short of the full 800, probably more like 700m. Darn!!

Ran in the gym and added stairs. 5 stairs plus run = 800m.

That note is for me, trying to distance things correctly.

20:00 exactly. Didn't time individual laps after the first, which was just at 4:00. Husband did it with me today, & he didn't time, but came in 2 or 3 mins under me. We used the stairs in our house, divided in half & did 32 sets up & down for each 800m.

Rachael said...

I think 800 meters is .497 miles. You may have done nearly twice the work!

MamaLacsamana said...

Used treadmill and just took enough of. Break to do 5 push-ups and 10 squats. Took about 20 min. Then ran another half mile and did 20 min on elliptical. Great workout today.

I tried to sprint faster in the last two rounds, but that just resulted in me having to stop and walk for a few short breaks. I know 800m is supposed to be a sprint, but that's really far for me!
