She’s Back in the Game!
Tina’s post made me smile a lot today and woke me up with HAPPY thoughts.
Going to bed early(10pm) last night gave me the extra boost that I needed this morning to tackle an early track workout! I wanted to ride my bike to the gym, but the weather outside prohibited me from doing that. So I drove my car, which I haven’t touched since last Tuesday!!
Track Workout(on the treadmill)
- 5 minute warm up
- 2X 200’s at 6:50 pace(easy 200 jog in-between each one)
- 2X400’s at 6:55 pace
- 2X800’s at 7:00 pace
- 1 mile cool down
Since I was at the gym I also did some weights and abs too. With all the equipment giving me the evil eye, I knew I had to do some. Have I told you guys that I loathe doing weights!! I mean I can do them if I am in a sculpt/kettle bell class, or Jillian’s DVD, but doing them on my own is tough!!
- 3x 10lb. bicep curl-ups
- 3x 10lb. military presses
- 3x 10lb one armed rows
- 1 minute plank
- 10 walking pushups
- 1 minute bicycles
- 1 minute side to side toe touches
I am getting excited abut running the SDRR Marathon in less then 3 weeks!! I have run a little sense the Boston Marathon, but the longest I have done is 8 miles.My training through out the week will be, 1 Track day, 1 Tempo Run, and Easy Run, and 1 long run. This weekend I will be shooting for 15-16 and then I am going to do a 10 miler the weekend before, I hope this will get me through the marathon??!
When I got back home I made something new for breakfast, Oat Bran.
I added 1/2 banana, Blackberries, handful of flax granola, and some Agave Nectar. It wasn’t my favorite thing, I may have to add some oats to in next time.
I also added a little light Coconut Milk to my cup of Joe this morning…mmmm..
TBL FINALE ON TONIGHT!!!!! You know what I’ll be doing.
Do you watch TBL? Who do you want to win??
I am so wanting Tara to be the Biggest Loser!!!
