Workouts #8 and #9

#8 was on Friday, I got an easy 2 miles in for 21 minutes and then did some weights. I was feeling kind of tired so I wasn’t really pushing hard, just getting it done. Here’s my weights, 2 sets of everything:

Single leg KB deadlifts 25#x10
Shoulder press 12#x12
Split squat with 8#db x 10
Pulldowns 80#x10
Quad curls 25#x12
Kickbacks 10#x10
Calf raises 20# on the machine x 15

I’m still trying to figure out what weights I should be using, so some of these were too easy. Hopefully I’ll get it all dialed in soon.

#9 was this morning’s run. I didn’t sleep great last night so I was pretty tired. I woke up too early but couldn’t go back to sleep so I just rested for a couple of hours. I got some things going in the kitchen, had a granola bar and coffee, and then headed out around 10:00. I did 4 miles total, with walk breaks after every mile. So when I was running I tried to keep my pace around 9:30. I did it in 39:22 which is pretty good for taking walk breaks. It was warm and humid which is always fun :/ Anyway, I’m glad I got it done! I haven’t been taking this whole thing very seriously, but I really want to get back on track and stop missing runs. So my goal is to just get them done and stop making excuses for not doing it!
