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.
Today’s run consisted of this concept I thought up. Well, I’m sure it’s been done by everyone else but I decided to do it myself. Basically I ran a whole lap, then 300 m, then 200, 100, and then 200 and back up to an entire lap for a total of 1.75 miles and then I walked a couple more laps as a cool down. It was pretty chilly but a good workout overall.
Next time, I need to warm up a bit better because I had planned to run a mile to see if I could get under 10 mins but my legs were hurting after the first lap so I stopped. Turns out I just needed to recover a sec and then I was fine but I had already stopped my stopwatch and stuff. I had a good pace too :/ Next time!

Simple stats from the weight lifting session from earlier.
And here are the stats from lifting. I can definitely tell I’m getting a long stronger and I’m doing more sets and reps of things. Pretty cool!
Just ran 4.5 miles. Wow. The most I ran before this was a 5k which is 3.1 and I did that on a track where the elevation was essentially the same. This time my 5k time was a bit longer at 42:36 but I also had a lot of elevation changes to deal with. I’ll post the link to the workout so you can see exactly how awful it was ahaha. I only stopped to walk 3 times and it was for a very short amount of time because of extended hills. I may have been able to try to do a 10k but I was tired and my breathing wasn’t great towards the end so I stopped. Needless to say, my legs are burning right now. I really needed this to kick my butt back into gear and I also wanted to thank the 20 or so new followers I got last night…it’s great motivation at a time when I really needed it.

Here’s the info for the weight training and a picture of me as well. This is one of the new shirts I bought and it’s an XL which is cool. Still a bit tight but looks fine imo.
Today we’re going to do two workouts since yesterday was an off day and we’re going out tonight as a couple of friends are coming for the holidays. First we started with some weight training and then we went to the track to do some cardio. Cardio consisted of doing 5 bleachers followed by one run around the track and repeat.

I should seriously consider more than one rest day. My legs are really sore from all the running. I could barely keep going at any controlled pace once I started. The good side is that I’m lifting more/doing more reps weight wise. Me gusta.
It’s amazing how easily I can run a mile now. This gave me the confidence to sign up for a 5k this spring for before I leave for Europe. I remember barely able to run 100m or a lap, even at 270 lbs the first time around. Now I may not be the quickest, but I can do it regularly and without too much exertion.
Today I did some sprints in the form of football routes for a while first, and then I did this run here. The run included a couple of huge hills and some stairs. You can see the elevation changes and stuff, and more info in the link if you want it: Workout
