Sunday Runday 4/10

SUMMARY

  • Run 3x  
    • Total mileage = 10.1 miles
  • Workout 2x 
  • PT 2x 
  • Avg 1500 calories/day X — My average was 1600 calories, more than it’s been in weeks.  I don’t know what happened (perhaps, my period? lol).
  • Weight = 137 lbs  😦
  • Waist = 34.5 inches

WORKOUTS

  • Monday 4/4 – 29 Deck of Cards – 3×30 second planks, 13 Spider Planks, 26 Russian Twists, 36 sit ups, 23 Lateral Lunges, 32 Squats, 26 Fire Hydrants, 17 Donkey Kicks, 20 Lunges, 17 Tricep Dips, 6 Push Ups, 5 Pull Ups, 5 Burpees
  • Tuesday 4/5 – 3.2 mile run [11:45 pace] and PT – This was a VERY sore, cold, icy run that I made myself do because I ate 3 chocolate chip cookies at work.  But then I proceeded to follow the run with pancakes w/butter and syrup. 
  • Wednesday 4/6 – Yoga on a Roll – There were some good stretches in here, don’t get me wrong, but the roller part was kind of pointless.  My foam roller also isn’t long enough to do a lot of the sequences.
  • Thursday 4/7 – 2.75 Fartlek run [10:50 pace] – Since I’m not really going to a track to workout, fartlek runs are the only way to incorporate the sprints that I did with the running coach.  Let me tell you, they were way easier on the track!
  • Friday 4/8 – PT
  • Saturday 4/9 – 4.2 mile Run [11:01 pace] – There was so. much. walking.  I have a mildly sharp pain in my thigh, so I think I need a few days off.  Next week will be light on running.
  • Sunday 4/10 – Back in Action Yoga – This was a quickie…less than 15 minutes.

GOALS:

  • Run 2x
  • Workout 3x
  • PT 2x
  • Avg 1450 calories/day

I have bookmarked so many at home workouts that I never do.  In addition to doing 6 Week 6 Pack by Jillian Michaels, I want to start working my way through those and actually utilizing them.

  • Wednesday 3/30 – 2.7 mile run [10:15 pace] – Blister is mostly healed, and protected in a fancy Nexcare blister bandage (works amazingly well).  Lessons learned: Moisturize my feet, buy new socks, donate stupid shoes.
  • Thursday 3/31 – 3.2 mile run [10:25 pace]Ooof my legs were sore, and my splits were all over the place (as opposed to yesterday, when they were constant!).  At the beginning of this run I thought, “There’s no way I can do this again, tomorrow!” but now that I’m done, of course I can! Plus, it’s finally warm enough to wear capris!!
  • Friday 4/1 – PT and 4.2 mile run [11.42 pace] – I was supposed to run today, but it was pouring out when I woke up…so…yeah…I’m a baby.  …BUT, then I ran after work!

WORKOUTS

  • Tuesday 3/22 – 3.1 mile run [10:22 pace]
  • Wednesday 3/23 – Deck of Cards 5×3 – This was a good, quick way to do a workout at 6am without thinking.  Though I need to pick more cards next time – this felt too easy.20160323_060223.jpg
  • Thursday 3/24 – 3.1 mile run [11:30 ish pace] – So, I may be pushing myself a little too hard too fast.  2 miles into what was supposed to be 3.3 miles, it felt like there were shards of glass cutting into my plantar.  I was wearing my ugly Brooks motion control shoes because my feet had been sore, and I thought they would help correct that.  I ended up pausing my run for awhile to walk, turning it back on and alternating between sprinting and walking the rest of the way back, worrying that plantar fasciitis was back again with a vengeance.  It actually looks like it’s just a blister, which is new for me.  I have no idea what to do with a blister.  Off to google.
  • Friday 3/25 – Deck of Cards Workout 26×1 – I did half the deck!  I was supposed to run today, but I figured I’d let the blister on my foot heal.  Here’s what I had to do (somehow, out of 26 cards, I managed to avoid burpees!).
    • Hips, Butt, Legs: 11 fire hydrants, 20 donkey kicks, 11 lateral lunges, 12 forward lunges, 34 squats, 27 single leg squats (I still can’t do these, so they were just uneven squats)
    • Arms: 10 tricep dips, 5 push ups, 5 pull ups
    • Abs: 6 30 second planks, 5 spider planks, 32 sit ups, 4 oblique sit ups, 51 russian twists

GOALS:

  • Run 3 times
  • Meet with Running Coach on Sunday
  • Do PT twice, including hip strength (I tend to skip that and just do my ankle stuff)
  • Yoga once
  • Track calories daily (Goal = 1350 per day)

Sunday Runday 3/20

SUMMARY

  • PT for knees and ankles 
  • Yoga class at Assembly Sports Club X
    • BUT, I did yoga at home on Sunday.
  • 2 runs 
    • 4 runs, 8.88 miles
  • Track calories daily (Goal = 1350 per day) ✓ 
    • I tracked them every day and my daily average was 1550!  New low!  If I remove Friday when I drank a lot, my average would be 1458, so…I should probably drink less?  haha
  • Weight = 136 lbs – Finally some progress!  On Sunday I was actually 134 lbs, but I knew I was dehydrated, so I’m going with the Monday morning measurement.
  • Waist = 34 inches

WORKOUTS

  • Monday 3/14 – PT for knees and ankles – I need to stretch and dig out the foam roller again.  After running last week and then skiing, my calves feel like rocks.
  • Tuesday 3/15 – 1.5 mile run [9:24 pace] – I was supposed to go to yoga tonight, but FH’s bike broke and I had to go pick him up.  Instead of giving up on the day, I suited up when we got back and did a quick run around the block before dinner.  Really quick.  Even quicker than the last time I did it!
  • Wednesday 3/16 – Stretch & Foam Roll
  • Thursday 3/17 – 3.1 mile run [10:34 pace] – My longest run in awhile.  Foot hurts.  Hip hurts.  To be expected.
  • Saturday 3/19 – 2.77 mile run [11:41 pace] – I ate A TON on Friday (more like drank a ton) and my calorie intake is not looking good, so I decided to go for a run to help with the hangover and mitigate going out later.  It was struggle city.
  • Sunday 3/20 – 1.5 mile run [10:56 pace] and Yoga for Hips, Hamstrings, and Back

GOALS:

  • Yoga at Assembly Sports Club (I’m putting this on here until I finally get my act together and go)
  • Run 3 times
  • Make a ‘deck of cards’ workout (where you write different exercises on each card and the number indicates how many you have to do)
  • Foam roll and PT (after a week with 4 days of running, even though not very far, everything hurts)
  • Track calories daily (Goal = 1350 per day)
