Hola! After a solid week of being sick, I finally did some good workouts this week!Saturday- I did a light full body lifting session at Planet Fitness. I wanted to demolish the gym, but I did not feel well at all. I managed to get through the workout but I don't remember exactly what I did! It was pretty much my normal routine but with less weight. This Snap Chat basically depicts how I was feeling...
Monday- 3 quick miles before work. When I say quick, I mean quick! It was so cool out and I felt good. After work, Paul and I went to the gym to lift. I felt a lot better than I did on Saturday!
Splits: 7:42, 7:39, 7:03
Asst. Wide Grip Pull Ups- 5x6 ??? lb asst. (I have no clue who much asst. I am using on this new, dumb machine.)
Cable Row- 5x10x55lb
Lat Pull Down- 5x8x85lb
Inverted Row- 5x10
Bicep Curls- 5x10x17.5
Bicycle Crunches- 5x40
Stability Ball Knee Tuck- 5x15
Captain Chair- 5x20
I upped the weights a bit. It's time to stop being lazy! If I can do more, then I should.
Tuesday- 5 quick miles before work. After yesterday's speedy workout, I was beginning to wonder if I should stop complaining about being slower. Maybe I am just being lazy? Maybe I should wake up my legs and at least try to run faster? I ended up with a really good progression run.
Splits: 8:13, 8:17, 8:08, 7:41, 6:58
Wednesday- Lifting chest @ home. I did a lot more push ups than usual! I normally do 50 but I have decided to officially up it to 100. Doing 100 push ups makes my shoulder presses REALLY hard.
When I do push ups, I use these things called The Perfect Push Up. Otherwise, my wrists really hurt.
Chest Press- 5x12x25lb
Push Ups- 100 total (all different amounts of reps)
Shoulder Press- 5x10x20lb
Tricep Dips- 5x15
Stability ball sit ups- 5x15x10lb
Stability ball knee tuck- 5x15
Bicycle crunches- 5x40
My triceps were sore the next day!
Thursday- 5 slow miles. I was so tired. Then about halfway through my run, I realized I wasn't feeling that great. It felt like the beginning of being sick... I was very tired and cold. Ugh. I popped 3 Ibuprofin before work and staved off whatever was coming for me.
Friday- 5 miles (intervals-ish). I warmed up with 1 mile, then I alternated running a half mile "fast" and a half mile "chill" four times. I just ran by feel, but my "fasts" were always sub 7s. This workout was another effort to not be lazy and wake my legs up!
How were your workouts this week?
