Slowly Slowly Catchy Monkey

Sunday - August 4

Run
  • 20m
  • 1.75 miles
  • 11m 25s /Mi

Sunny. Which reminds me that I should get some sunglasses. Pretty decent run...I felt pretty hot and sweaty, and a bit tired. Yet, I went up a hill a bit easier. Victory!

Can we say consistency? Two days in a row I have set out merely to run 20 minutes without stopping. Good stuff, got it done, woo hoo.
And yet look at that....
Exactly 1.75 miles each day! Nice!! I didn't even remotely try to do that!

20 minutes straight. Felt a bit tough, and I really wanted to walk a few times, but I got it done.

Friday - August 2

Rest Day

Plan for upcoming week:
Increase runs from 15 to 20 minutes
Increase strength training to 3 sets, leave reps the same.
Thinking about increasing DB row again. Also thinking about moving from counter pushups to knee pushups.

Thursday - August 1

Run
  • 15m
  • 1.26 miles
  • 11m 54s /Mi

Misting outside, and not hot, which was awesome. I felt really good during this run, and took it nice and easy.

I am so spoiled by this weather, I keep thinking about pumpkins and apple cider. When the hot weather comes back I'm going to be so sad.
And look at that nice new calendar! All white and ready to turn (mostly) peach. Let's do this.

Knocked this one out and didn't feel like crying at all!
Next week: add in a few more reps on the squats and lunges, increase weight on DB row, decrease the incline on the pushup, and possibly increase plank.

Tuesday - July 30

Run
  • 15m
  • 1.27 miles

More nonstop running, more cooler temperatures, less sun, and less humidity!
This made for a very good morning. Now if only 15 minutes didn't feel like such a long time. Baby steps, right?

I am so glad I cut back on the reps on yesterday's strength workout. I'm only a little bit sore today, and I'm able to move around like an ordinary human being. I think I'll start adding reps in next week. No more velociraptor walking for 3 days at work!

Cut back on the number of squats and lunges this time, considering I was STILL having problems walking around yesterday, 4 days after the workout. We'll see how I feel tomorrow.

Still feel like I could lift heavier on the DB row. Might be ready to lower the incline on the pushup.
