Sunday Runday 5/29 … Tuesday edition

SUMMARY

  • Run 3x per week X
    • Total Mileage = 5 miles
  • Avg 1350 calories/day X
    • My 5 day average was 1610, already not looking good.  Then, I took a 3 day vacation from counting calories that coincided with a trip to Portland, ME for a wedding.  It is guaranteed that I am well over my target, what with brewery tours and open bars, not to mention the amazing food.  The wedding was at Grace and it was such a nice venue.  I’ll be back on the wagon this week.  Promise.
  • Weight = 135 lbs

WORKOUTS

  • Monday 5/23- 1.8 mile run [10:14 pace]
  • Thursday 5/26 – 5K RACE in 27:44!!!! – THAT, my friends, is an 8:53 min/mile average pace.  Holy fucking shit.  I should probably stretch or foam roll or something.

GOALS:

  • Run 3x per week
  • Average 1350 calories/day

Sunday Runday 5/22

SUMMARY

  • Run 3x per week 
    • Total Mileage = 8.2 miles
  • Workout 2x per week 
    • 6 Week 6 Pack 
    • Arms and back workout OR a full body workout 
  • 1 hour of Yoga X
  • PT 3 times 
  • Avg 1350 calories/day X — Since I didn’t “use” a Fuck It day this week, my average skyrocketed to 1621, but I s’pose it’s better to know the whole story.  UGH.  I hate watching what I eat.  I love watching myself each whatever the fuck I want.
  • Weight = 136 lbs

WORKOUTS

  • Monday 5/16 – 6 Week 6 Pack – I have written down all the exercises from this video, so I did this workout without the video because I wanted to watch Veep.  It never feels like I do as much work though, without Jillian’s frenetic pace.
  • Tuesday 5/17 – 2 mile run [10:28 pace] – I seriously don’t know how to run faster without other people.
  • Wednesday 5/18 – PT
  • Thursday 5/19 – 2 mile fartlek run [10:20 pace] – I did 4 sprints within this run…and had to walk after each one.  My legs are jello.
  • Friday 5/20 – 4.16 mile run [10:21 pace] – Fuck Yes!  I did my long run at the same pace as my short/easy/fast run.
  • Saturday 5/21 – PT
  • Sunday 5/22 – 2×15 Arm Workout + PT

GOALS:

  • Run 3x per week
    • Thursday is my next 5K in the Summer Series.  28:03 is the time to beat!…which is nuts because the fastest I run by myself is barely 10 min/miles. 
  • Average 1350 calories/day

You will notice that I took out all workouts and PT.  It doesn’t mean I won’t do anything, because I will.  What it DOES mean is that my focus is on food.

    • I think, maybe, no more Fuck It Days 😦  They are effective in getting me to eat healthier the other 6 days of the week, but I literally gained 2 pounds in a day this week.  I ate s’mores for lunch and beer and mac and cheese for dinner.  Maybe, Fuck It meals?

WORKOUTS

  • Monday 5/9 – PT
  • Tuesday 5/10 – 1.86 mile run [10:01 pace] – This was supposed to be a nice, short recovery run, but my legs are still screaming from the 5K last week.
  • Wednesday 5/11 – 30 minutes of Yoga for Athletes + PT – I don’t know why I ever bookmarked this video.  It’s so boring, and doesn’t stretch what I need.  Blech.

  • Saturday 5/14 – 3 mile run [11:34 pace] – And that’s how slow I run when I don’t have friends to follow.  I need to get better at pacing myself, because this felt like I was going fast.

Sunday Runday 5/8

SUMMARY

  • Run 3x per week  
    • Total Mileage = 6.17 miles
  • Workout 2x per week X
    • 6 Week 6 Pack  
    • Arms and back workout OR a full body workout X
  • 1 hour of Yoga X
  • PT 3 times X
  • Avg 1400 calories/day X — My average was 1505 and that excluded 1 Fuck It day and included one day that I thought I did really well, but it turns out Apple Crisp at a restaurant = 1400 calories.  Whoops.
  • Weight = 134 lbs <–I think that’s the first time I’ve seen that number!

This week started a 5K Summer Series that I decided to sign up for with some friends.  Proceeds support cancer charities and a different brewery sponsors each race.  Runners get 2 drink tickets afterwards.  There are 7 races throughout the summer and early fall, all Thursdays after work.  This was actually my first 5K race, and it was awesome!

WORKOUTS

  • Monday 5/2 – 6 Week 6 Pack + PT – This workout really kills me.
  • Tuesday 5/3 – 2 mile run [9:48 pace] – This was a good, short run.
  • Thursday 5/5 – 3.1 mile run [9:02 pace] – Running with faster friends makes you fast.  This is the fastest I’ve ever run 3 miles by like 5 minutes.  I finally broke 30 minute 5k!  I think I’m just terrible at knowing my pace and even trying to run fast.
  • Saturday 5/7 – 1 mile run [10:30 pace]
