Wednesday: 5 miles at 8:11 pace. Baby, it's cold outside! My outdoor thermometer stopped reading the temperature at 6 degrees. It was cold, but I overdressed and still ended up hot and shedding layers. This run was amazing! Great music, a sky filled with stars, and nice cool breaths. It rocked my world.
|24 degrees was the high from the day before and the temperature was somewhere below 6 degrees.|
|See all that white around my hairline? FROST.|
Saturday: Circuit strength training- some legs, some abs, some arms. Let's be real- I have no idea what I'm doing. I don't really like it. I just make stuff up, but I always end up sore the next day so I guess that works. Right? Know how I get through something I hate?
Round 1- An oatmeal chocolate chip cookie after every set.
Round 2- A Reese's Peanut Butter Cup after every set.
Round 3- Creamy chicken enchilads, peas, and a garden salad upon completion. (My brother, if he even reads this, is dying right now. Sorry, James. I'm a terrible weight lifter).
Someone once told me that I'm not a dog and I shouldn't reward myself with food. I say I don't mind being a dog. They get to sleep all day, go for a run, and are bribed with treats. Sounds like a good life to me.
Last weeks goal: Strength train twice a week. Know what's harder than running a marathon? Strength training twice a week. For me, anyway. Seriously. Which leads me to....
This week's goal: Strength train twice a week. My friend told me that you shouldn't set a goal unless it's hard for you to reach. So, I guess I'm setting a good goal considering I've set it 4 times in a row and have never done it. I have a feeling this is going to be my week though.
How was your workout week? Any new PR's? Do you like strength training? What's your secret?
