2012 – Workout #32

Four mile run tonight, I think it went pretty good. I have to say the middle of the run was rough though. After talking to Travis, he did four miles in 26 minutes, me well not so much, but under 40, I pushed myself and end of the raid paid for it. But it felt GREAT when I was done!

Did a set of 30 pushups before my run.  Tonights run was rough, and awesome!  My first 3 mile run outside, ever.  And of course its snowing like crazy cold like crazy.  I get suited up, socks, shorts, long t-shirt, t-shirt, hoodie and of course my gloves!  Put on the shoes and just went for it.  Adam came with for the first .7 miles, then I was on my own.  I wanted under 30 minutes.  It was a great run!

 

 

2012 – Workout #25

Another 2 mile run tonight.  But tonight I decided I’d lift some too, BEFORE doing a run.  Which I thought I would after yesterday which turned out to be just a set of pullups.  But tonight I hopped on the bench did about 7 sets, highest weight at 225 busting out 4 reps (no spotter) and some incline dumbbell press.  Hitting up the 80lb weights on the and doing work on them.  And of course working in pushups and some serious feet inclined ones.  Great workout tonight, if I could do this every day I’d be ripped.

As for the run it was on the track in doors.  I felt my mid run was very difficult yesterday so I took it easier early on and had a strong mid – end run but I gassed a bit early and couldn’t sprint to the finish.  Thank Chevelle for that burst there.  Good music really pumps me up.

2012 – Workout #24

Tonights run, another 2 miles.  Second day in a row, first time for that I think.  On a treadmill and was rather difficult, I expected it to be easier.  I did have a decent time over all.  But nothing like yesterdays run, I really thought I was going to die yesterday.   My mid run was rough, as you can see I had to slow down, but nonetheless I didn’t quit.

Of course also pushups!  I wanted to lift after the run but to be honest I didn’t have the energy to do it.  I went and tried some pullups, I did do three pull ups on my own, pretty good.  Not the best form, but still good.

2012 – Workout #23

Tonights run, I actually thought I was going to die.  I was literally breathing so hard I am sure people thought I was going to die.  I did set my personal best split 1 mile, at 8:34 which I am REALLY happy about.

Todays 2.25 mile run was awesome, it felt great and I felt great doing it.  After being sick all day I decided I’m sick of excuses and I just went for it.  I had a pounding headache that went away as I ran, really really awesome.

2/7/12 Run 2.25 miles

2/7/12 Run 2.25 miles

Also 120 pushups 🙂

I dont’ know whats with the drop after I reached my goal, it simply quit recording pace, but I really pushed hard after that, running a very quick finish.  Always gas in the tank for that finish line, always.

2012 – Workout #20

I had a really rough run tonight, dam its hard to run inside, but I did a good mile, something my little training thing is telling me to do.  I do have a goal for running this year, but I am not sure 100% I am going to commit to it, so it stays in the dark for now.

 

Set of 35 Plank for 30 seconds then 25 Pushups

Run 1 mile

Set of 40 pushups

Shoulder feeling a bit sore, I am thinking it is coming from the planking, four workouts, all with planks sore shoulder, but ALSO when I push myself in the pushup department.
