Tonight’s workout. Nice, quick workout with the aim of keeping my heart rate up throughout the whole thing. Overall it was pretty great and I’m glad I got off my butt and did something as I wasn’t planning to.
Back from the gym! I started with 10 minutes on the stationary bike to warm up and followed it up with some stretches and ab work. After that, I hit the weights for a while and did both upper and lower bodies. Finally, I hit the treadmill for a short burst of half a mile worth of sprints. Overall it was a great workout. Those sprints had me breathing hard. Anyway, I took a couple of pictures but it was too dark for my phone to get anything good and I didn’t bring my good camera. Maybe next time!
Here’s my weight lifting session. Got some good work in overall. I moved up the weight for my bench press and though I’m struggling a bit, it’s the only way to get stronger!
The only thing that really sucks about running in my area is that the elevation change sucks. As you can see, most of my run is uphill :[ and in this heat and humidity. Anyway, I ran the whole thing which I’m proud of since I haven’t ran in a while. Dripping in sweat and muscles are aching but that’s a good thing right?
Oh and I forgot my heart rate monitor :/
My time off did me none too well. My arms are already hurting and my legs will no doubt be dead tomorrow. But yeah, half an hour today gets me back into it and I already feel better! Here are the stats.
Back from today’s exercise. It’s really wet and gloomy outside so I put on some cleats and played football and soccer. It ended up being like doing a kind of interval training since there was a lot of slow jogging mixed in with quick sprints. I definitely felt faster and others have been saying I’m really fast now so yay for progress. Sorry for no stats today. Didn’t wear my MotoActv.
So I did .5 a mile on the treadmill to warm up which I didn’t track and then I did some ab work and finally hit the weights. Here is the 30 minutes of weight lifting followed by a quick .5 mile burst session on the elliptical.
Ran 20 bleachers today along with a couple of laps of the track and then did some sprints/football routes. Here are the stats for everything but the sprints/routes.
I ran in the heat for the first time today and it was toooough. First of all, I hadn’t ran in a while so my legs hurt a bit and I had to stop to walk a bit after a mile. Second, I sweat so much because of the heat but it also makes me feel more badass ». Lastly, my sports sunglasses performed beautifully. I was worried they’d fog up a lot when I ran in the heat but not once did they fog.
Oh and I ran a mile in 10:53 which is the first time I’m recording a mile that’s outside with multiple elevation changes.
Ran some hills today. My legs were really tired and shaky, so I didn’t do too much because I felt as if I were going to collapse at a certain point haha. At least it’s something! This hill is no joke and I ran it five times.
