Awesome workout today. I am pretty tired right now and I hope that is a result of me working hard and not because I’m old. It’s not right? Don’t answer that.
I did a normal easy leg workout today and even though my legs are no longer sore from the marathon they were definitely screaming at me during the workout (they’re still tired). Lunges are hard. I want to punch them in the face.
Lunges 25 lbs 15 reps each side 4 sets
Step ups 15 reps each side 4 sets
Leg Press 150 lbs 15 reps 4 sets
Hamstring curl 35 lbs 15 reps 4 sets
You know what else I’d like to punch in the face? Cellulite! I know I don’t have the best eating habits, but I have worked out pretty hard and VERY consistently FOR THREE YEARS. Do you think one ounce of cellulite has left my thighs? Don’t answer that.
And since we have on the boxing gloves muffin tops also deserve a jab right in the pie hole. A muffin top is just your body’s reminder that your pants are too tight. As if the difficulty in breathing wasn’t already enough.
There you have it ladies and gentlemen—all my
well hidden secrets revealed. Oh well. Carry on.
My fartlek went much better than I anticipated. I planned to do a quick warm up. 1 minute hard followed by 2 minutes of walking and repeat. I thought the “hard” would be a 9:00 minute mile pace. Turns out I was able to do the 1 minute interval at 8.0 mph (7:15 pace). I guess I don’t give myself enough credit.
Since I did my legs today, and they were already tired, I decided to do 6 speedy 1 minute intervals. I finished about two and half miles after jogging at 5.0 mph to a nice even 30 minutes. I like this work out. I hope it makes me faster! Do you actually think I can get my PR at Rock n Roll Dallas? Don’t answer that.
