Last night I wanted to do a yoga workout since my legs are feeling tight from the running and water walking that I have been doing. Unfortunately the on demand exercise tv was not working so I couldn’t do it. So I decided to do a quick strength train workout since I have been picking Bubba up from football class and have missed my circuit class on Monday and Wednesday this week. It took me 20 minutes and I was sweating by the end.
Here is the workout:
Exercise Weights Reps Sets
Bicep curls 8 lbs. 15 3
Side shoulder raises 5 lbs. 15 3
Deadlifts 30 lbs. 15 3
Tricep extensions 8 lbs. 15 3
Alternating Reverse Lunges 15 lbs. 15 3
Pushups (on knees) Bodyweight 15 3
Wall sits Bodyweight 30 sec. 3
Planks Bodyweight 30 sec. 3
Full sit-up Bodyweight 12 3
Reverse Crunch Bodyweight 12 3
So this morning I got up and got my walk/run in. Of course last night I was awake at 2:30 because it was thundering and lightening so I knew it was going to be hot and humid out.
My walk 4 min/run 2 min and I ended up going 2.36 miles in 33 minutes. That is pretty darn good for me. What I have noticed after doing this program this week, my mileage is increasing and the running is defintely getting easier. I am excited to start Stage 4 next week.
So when I went to bed last night I was craving peanut butter granola but after my run I wanted something cold. So what’s a girl to do?
- 1 handful spinach
- 1 handful frozen blueberries
- 4 fresh strawberries
- 1/2 banana
- 1 scoop chocolate whey protein powder
- 1/2 c. milk
Topped with homemade peanut butter granola. This hit the spot.
Now it is off to do the work thing and it is starting to storm here.
