Running a day behind but I will catch up!

Came back mid-afternoon Monday from a long weekend in Singapore for a kids soccer tournament. It was a fun but tiring weekend. And then was being the good wife accompanying my husband to a reception on board a US navy ship that is docked in HK at the moment. Not that it was exactly a hardship but I was tired and feeling busy...I did try bail on him but he was persuasive.
In the short time between those 2 things I needed to get everyone unpacked and prepared for the week...plus shower and put on a dress. The workout was the casualty. So today I did Day 1. And shortly I'll be heading to dragonboat practice. So I'm going to call that Days 1 and 7. And by Monday I'll be on track!
Day 1 workout notes:
I was able to do the half burpees with a soft landing - so I think I'm okay with those.
Mini starjumps were fine too - I keep them low so the impact is minimal.
Yahoo jumps - I'm not quite sure what to call my version - I still start with a sort of bent over squat and try to get a bit of explosive force upward - but I keep one foot firmly planted - arms and other leg up and out just like the photo. Halfway through the set I switch to the other foot. Obviously this is not as tough as the jumping version, but I still felt it and feel like it was a pretty good alternative.
