Tribesports User of the Week: Karen F
One hundred push ups and 8 minute wall squat. These two took me a long time to build up to and I'm not real keen to tackle either one again. I am most proud of the challenges that I have to commit to for a time period. Doing 20 push ups everyday for a month is great consistency. I am currently working on 2 minute plank every day for a year and some nights I'll be brushing my teeth and remember that I have to drop and hold plank for 2 minutes before I can crawl in to bed.
You've logged a crazy amount of body weight exercises - which one do you struggle most with?
Believe it or not, JUMPING JACKS! I feel the burn in my calves thighs core upper back and shoulders, plus my heart rate gets up like crazy.
Awesome family achievement running a 5km race together, will you be entering any more races with your family?
My husband and I run together a lot and we have since done a 10k, half marathon and are working towards a full marathon this year. While my kids remain very active, they are sprinters. I always tell them they run like soccer players (real fast for a short amount of time) Endurance isn't really their thing, maybe when they are older.
How often do you practice yoga?
I do a little bit of yoga everyday, nothing serious but I'll do a few poses that I know will stretch out the muscle group I worked that day. Injury is one of my biggest fears so I have found that yoga can fix (and prevent) just about everything. Every 3 months or so I will take a week off from running and weight lifting to do strict yoga.
As a self-proclaimed foodie, what 3 meals would make it onto your dessert island menu?
Being a pastry chef married to an Executive chef of three restaurants I can tell you that I think about food 24/7. I love to cook and becoming fit has made me a more adventurous cook and eater. I've taught myself to use herbs and vegetables to flavor food, experimented with grains and produce that I had never even heard of. I really have become aware of how my body feels after eating well vs. not so well.
Onto that island... I am a sucker for tacos, sausage and peanut butter. Not all together of course!
Isn't she amazing, the giraffe unicycle is taller than she is! I tried it once, on a short one. I figured I would go down the hall so I could hold onto to both walls. Nope I fell off after one pedal. Didn't she laugh.
Which Tribesports user makes your day?
@nuchi every morning when I first check into tribesports she is always there.
