This was a busy week!
Tuesday I didn’t do overtime so I could get a last 15k run in before the Nike run this weekend! It was a good run and I am hoping to do a sub 1:20 15k. I can not even explain how excited I am for this run!!!!
Wednesday I did a great HIRT (High Intensity Resistance Training) Workout
Basically I did three 10 minute sets of resistance training with little to no break in between sets……..
- 10 push-ups
- 10 squats
- 10 tuck jumps
- 10 medicine ball slams
- 10 pull-ups (I did modified pull ups as I obviously am not at the pull up point yet)
- 10 deadlifts (75lbs)
- 10 lunges (each leg)
- 10 push presses (50lbs)
- 10 jump lunges
- 10 kettle bell swings
- 15 floor crunches
- 10 bicep curls (15 lb dumbbells)
So you start a set and just keep going through it till 10 minutes is up then switch sets.
After I finished the 30 minutes I was dripping sweat……..I did a few sets of plank variations and worked on my bench press goal. I am up to 75lb x 5 on the bench press…….I will get there…..aiming to get up to 1 plate either side (135lbs) x 5…….
Thursday I was a little sore from the HIRT workout……Nothing serious……..
After work I set out and did a 5k. When I left for the run I wasn’t really thinking about time but I felt pretty good by the time I hit 1k in I decided to pick up the pace.
I ended up with a 5:14min/km average pace (8:25mile) Not too bad…..
Friday I picked up another 6-2 Overtime shift. I was on the fence about running…I usually take 2 days off before a race but I kinda wanted to get a slow 5k in just to keep loose……..
By the time I got home it was pouring rain……made the decision to take the day off that much more appealing……so that is what I did……
By the time Shane got home my ass had pretty much made a permanent dent in the couch! It was going to take wild horses to get me moving……I was lazy as long as possible but finally I had to go get ready for the Stag and Doe…….
I wanted to wear a dress…..I always wear dresses……but I didn’t want to look overdressed!
Ended up being a good choice to stick to jeans!
It was so packed and there were tons of prizes but I think maybe I am too old for these types of events…..plus I was the DD so I just ate my body weight in buffet food and waited for Shane to be ready to leave!
I should have wore my hair up it! It looked ok before we left and as soon as I stepped out into the humid/rainy night frizz set in immediately……..I know better….ugh…..
Because I am an complete moron who apparently can’t read emails properly I missed the fact that there is no race day packet pick up! SOB! So now I have to make the trek to Downtown Toronto to pick it up…..
The Honda Indy Toronto is on today down there…..this.is.gonna.suck.
I am hoping to go right there and back as fast as possible….no doddling……..because I want to get to the Veggie food fest!
