Workouts 9/24 – 9/30

Ah, recover week after my half marathon. Oh wait, I’m still training for a full marathon so this is just another week of training. How crazy is that?? In the past, after running a half marathon I would take at least a week to a month to recover and now I just keep on going like nothing happened! I did only run two days this week, but I was able to achieve another personal distance record of 16 miles. I am truly being carried by God during these runs because I have no idea how else it is possible to run that far!

Workouts 5/7 – 5/13

Well, this is a dissapointing workout log! I did not keep track of what I did and can’t find any other evidence from twitter or facebook. as to what I might have done – so it will remain a mystery! I will say I thoroughly enjoyed biking on Saturday with Ben – we haven’t been out riding in quite a while! My first hot yoga class was also pretty cool. I wasn’t sure I’d like it, but I knew the instructor and it was exactly what my body needed – to sweat and stretch!

Crossfit – Fight Gone Bad
Warm-up 400 m row
Workout: 1 minute of each exercise, rest 1 minute, repeat 3 times
Russian kettle bells swings (35lbs)
Ninja sit-ups (14lb med ball)
Walking lunges with plate overhead (25lbs)
Hand release push-ups
Total reps each round: 76, 81, 82

Great workout, I didn’t think I had pushed hard enough when I was done but I was sore for 3 days afterwards! I did 5 real pull ups in a row the first round and most of the push-ups on my toes for the first round which is why my first number was so much lower. I can’t decide if doing full motions slower and less reps is better, or modified to get the anaerobic benefit of the workout. I’ll have to ask my trainer and let you know.

Our church is having a series of sermons that are dedicated to God’s Word and specifically getting words from God. I had grand plans to write several blogs today, do housework, and lots of other things. I did end up running a few errands and all of a sudden it was 6pm! Our poor little dog hadn’t gone outside for a decent walk, so I put my shoes on, grabbed my phone and started listening to this morning’s sermon on youtube while we walked. Oh yeah, I slept in and didn’t actually go to church this morning.

Wow, I was definitely getting a word from God. Very clearly, through the voice of my pastor, I heard God saying, “READ YOUR BIBLE!!!! You have no excuse, just do it!!!” So, instead of all the things I could be doing tonight, I am going to spend some time with God’s word. Have a great Sunday night!
