Year 2 Week 2: Work Out Recapitulation

I just learned something…

Recap is an informal word that is the short form of the word recapitulate (verb) or recapitulation (noun). There is nothing wrong with using the word recap, in fact it is far more socially accepted and understood than talking about a recapitulation…

However, to avoid weekly sheep references (round up…baaaa!) and to avoid a blatant steal of the title from Nancy at My years  of sweat ( I already borrowed the idea…so I thought I should avoid nicking the name too)

As well as all that, I like under used words 🙂

anyway…on with the recapitulation!


well…yes…I *could* have used the word summary…but that is no fun!

remember last week, when I was full of good intentions to write craft posts through the week and / or use fancy pens and write stuff in my lovely lego diary…


I did  none of that, so again I am having to rely on my memory…and the fact that I track most things with an app of some sort, so the data is there, it just needs finding…


Lunchtime: run! I ran at lunchtime…whic was awesome…and doubly awesome was that I went out and started running, and didn’t stop until I got back to work..I ran for 24 mins with no walk breaks which is the longest time I have ever run…ever!! 😀
PM: Insanity Cardio Power and Resistance 😀


AM: Personal training, including such fun things as one legged burpees with one foot in a trx…I didn’t even know that was a real thing! also a fair amount of skills based/ balance improving stuff and strength training. 😀
Lunchtime: 2.74km walk
PM: Insanity Pure Cardio

AM: Insanity Plyometric Cardio Circuit. Just in case you were wondering…this is soo hard to do at 6am!!
Lunchtime: 2.88km walk
PM: Dance out at two different locations, it involved only 5 dances, but was an enjoyable evening for the most part. slightly marred by one of the other morris sides not really approving of us…they invited us however, you would think they knew what we were like. We think they were just disgruntled because people like us better 😉


PM: Insanity Cardio Recovery.




Lunchtime: 3.03km walk
PM: Insanity Cardio power and resistance
(also baking…which is not actually exercise to be completely honest, but I made steampunk cupcakes and they were awesome so I wanted to show them to you)


AM: Insanity Pure Cardio (another one that is hard work at 6am!!)
PM: Ceilidh dance at my friend’s wedding (the one for which I made steampunk cupcakes 🙂 ) plus lots of walking about during the day


Lunchtime: Unloading a trailer full of straw bales , it counts…it is functional exercise!! It is quite hard work believe me 🙂
PM: Insanity Cardio Abs. according to the plan I should have done this on Saturday…but I ran out of time what with weddings and suchlike so I did it on Sunday 🙂 It makes up for me having to miss pilates 😦

That was week 2 🙂 lots of fun, and lots and lots of jumping!


I would just like to point out that I have exercised in the early morning, 3 days this week, 3 whole times I have managed to drag myself out of bed at 5:30 to do something ridiculously energetic! I blame Shaun T and his addictive Insanity!

    Insanely early for me is around 9am so I admire you even before the workout part 😉 I want to see a morris dancer smackdown – that would be fun 🙂

  2. NancyTex says :

    Recapitulation is a mouthful! Please feel free to shorten to recap anytime you see fit. I’m honoured that you would nick any ideas from me. 🙂

  3. Helen says :

    I’m catching up, I probably started at the wrong end of my feed thingy but never mind, let’s pretend that isn’t true! I’m highly impressed with your early mornings, although I nearly missed them because you almost lost me at the one-legged burpees. I can’t even picture in my head how that would work without some kind of pretzel shaped fiasco as the result! Also the steampunk cupcakes look amazing! 😀

      😀 thank you! The early mornings are the fault of insanity…and it is such hard work at 6am!!
      One legged burpees were a challenge…luckily the other foot was in A trx…which stretches the definition of lucky…
