Workouts 7/9 – 7/15

Man oh man, I really wish I didn’t always forget to write down my workouts on the day I do them. Tuesday and Monday on this post are complete question marks. I should have run something on Tuesday, but I can’t remember. Twitter and Facebook have no input for me, so I will leave it blank. It is better to under-estimate your training than over-estimate right?? I was pretty happy with myself for getting to the gym and doing some lifting/abs but of course it has not lasted. My schedule just doesn’t work well for me to run and keep up the weight workouts. Or I’m not that dedicated yet!

Workouts 7/22 – 7/29

This week was tougher for running than I expected. I guess I didn’t get much sleep Sunday or Monday night, which makes it hard to recover from the long run last week on Sunday. Tuesday’s run was tough and Thursday didn’t feel too great, but I just kept pushing. I meant to run 3-4 miles on Friday, but I was too busy at work and didn’t have the will to run in the full sun at 3 or 4pm! I am feeling good running and completing my second 24 Day Challenge. I can definitely tell that I need to be strength training more – or just doing something other than running. My legs are not going to hold up to just running, even if I take great supplements. I know myself and weight training is my friend when I’m working on running consistency.

Workouts 5/5 – 5/11

This week was “Get Moving” week. I am supposed to be running a 10k when I go home to see my family the weekend of May 18th, and I haven’t been running. I tried to run Monday morning, but it was not possible. My body was revolting against me the whole time and I turned around after just ten minutes. Tuesday I met a friend at the gym for bodypump, only to find out the class was cancelled because the floors were being redone. We chatted while on the elliptical and I did my dreaded challenging burpee workout. Thursday I met a friend to run with and a nice, easy (slow) pace totally redeemed my Monday run. I felt great and wanted to run forever.
