Weekly Workout Recap

Here is what I had goin' on!


3/14- Another double digit run! I felt a little stiff at first, but things got better.



3/15- A very windy 5 miler. I couldn't wait to get done!





3/16- It was freezing this morning! Apparently, the cold put some pep in my step!

3/18- I forced myself to lift chest at the gym. I hadn't done chest there in quite a long time but I knew I needed to. There are heavier weights there than I have at home. I was really proud of my multiple sets/reps of chest press at 30lb! I remember when I could only do 25lb and the 30s were too heavy for me to hold and lay back on the bench at the same time. Now I just have to be confident and I can do it. If I am not confident, I know I will psych myself out and drop 60lbs right on my chest.




3/19- I didn't sleep well the night before (actually, I haven't slept well all week) so I felt like a was dragging on this run at first. However, once I warmed up I felt okay. A little puppy started chasing me around mile 3. I love when puppies (not scary dogs) chase me because they are just so happy and friendly!




3/20- 5 miler in the SNOW! We had off work today due to the snowstorm. Luckily, it wasn't laying on the roads in my neighborhood so I was able to run relatively safely. I was definitely running defensively, though!


Notice I always wear the same pink shirt when I run? 
It smells DISGUSTING even before I start my workout.
Do you tend to wear the same clothes when you workout?
What's your most recent lifting PR that you are proud of?

  1. The cold usually puts a little pep into my step as well...lol. I stick to the same running outfits for sure. My best race shirts smell horrible!

    1. Ooh glad I am not alone on that one! I try to wear that pink one when I am all by myself. :)

  2. When I find a running top that I really like I buy it in every single color available so that I can wear it all the time without the smell factor. The smell from Adam's workout clothes are enough to knock you out dead. He always wears his favorite outfit despite having several nicer outfits that I have picked out for him! The other day he goes, "The gym smelled really bad today, what do you think that was?" The gym did not smell bad, he was just smelling his workout clothes!!!! lol

    I am proud to be making progress on the assisted pull-ups. I think maybe I will be able to do 1 unassisted by the end of the year! haha

    1. LOL! I hope you broke it to Adam gently that it was HE who was the smelly kid at the gym! I am not thinking of Pheobe's Smelly Cat song.

      Good job on your pull up progress! I hope your are feeling beastly.

  3. I have a bright pink top I wear practically every day in the winter--It's warm, and I call it my "don't get hit by a car shirt"...I think it will be time to retire it after this season. It's hard to toss it when it looks fine...

  4. Sometimes I wash my stuff twice and the smell seems to seep out lol
    Great job on the chest press! I still bench mostly for chest- I have been trying the free weights more but I can feel my left shoulder popping :/ so I can't go as heavy as I need to- it doesn't seem to pop as much on the bench. I have worked my way up to 40 lbs. on each side of the Smith machine - but still can't do 25 lbs. on the regular bench yet, that's my goal I've been working at for a few months now.

    1. That's awesome that you can lift such heavy weights! I have not tried bench in a really long time. I would love to know what I can do.

    2. I bet a lot if you can do those heavy dumbbells :)
