Sunday: 2 easy miles and a full body weight session. I almost didn’t work out at all but at 8pm, I decided I wasn’t going to let that happen. I got my but up and out the door to run before coming home and having Kevin lift we me. We worked a little bit of everything with light weights. Bench, squats (air), shoulder press, triceps and abs.
Monday: 2 easy miles. I met Nikia out on the road and ran these with her. She is just starting to run again so we took it nice and easy.
Tuesday: Cross Fit style workout. A friend and I headed over to another friends to get in a quick but solid workout. We pushed hard and got it done. We used 15lb dumbbells for the lunges and a 14lb wall ball. Instead of pull up we did sit ups. Love working my core!
Wednesday: 2.41 easy miles. These weren’t easy. It was 4 degrees outside and the wind was approx 20 mph. This combined with my legs and hips being sore from the workout on Monday, it was a slow going process. We made it about a mile before I had to take a walk break? Really, my legs weren’t doing well with the cold and soreness. 🙂
Thursday: 2 easy miles with Dare and a short weight session. Kathy and I decided to work our core and did the P90X ab ripper video along with some weighted calf raises. The burn feels so good! I also got some new running shoes, they are just waiting to be broken in!
Friday: 2 easy miles with Dare and a quick upper body lift session. We did bench, fly, tricep dips, bicep curls and some core. Then I did a plank until failure. I didn’t time it but eventually will once my core is stronger.
Saturday: REST! Finally. I actually wanted to do something but I had a wedding to attend. My nephew got married and that came first. By the time we got home, Kevin and I spent some time together. We didn’t see each other much Friday since he worked PD all night so it was much needed. 🙂
Overall, I am happy with this week. I still need to work on my diet and really start nailing things down a little bit more. I do pretty good but could always do better. I did eat out once this week which was Sunday, a lazy pizza day.
I can feel myself getting stronger now that I am focusing on lifting more. I am still working on getting my home gym complete. It isn’t what I would call great but slowly it will get there!
