Today I got home from work and really needed to get in a few miles. I headed out around 7 pm, the sun was down but it was still 109* outside. I was able to knock out 4.5 miles and hold a pretty good pace throughout. I was happy to get the endurance training in but I definitely prefer running early in the morning before the sun comes up.
So guess what I did on Wednesday night during my rest day. STRENGTH TRAINING!!!
Our oldest has one of those all-in-one weight benches so I thought it was about time that I started using it. Used very low weight until I get in the groove of things but got in some pretty quality sets. I ended up doing a full body workout using the following lifts:
4) Side squats
6) Side plank with leg lift
I'm hoping to add this to my work out plan so that my legs get used to the weight training. Super excited to start, now I just need to stick with it moving forward.
Anybody racing this weekend? What is your workout plan this weekend??
Hello, thank you for joining me along my journey of becoming a Runner! I've always been an active guy, played sports in high school and continued into adult recreation sports after high school. As I started my family and found a career, the activity level slowly decreased. Well my Fiance had enough of our lazy ways and started on the Weight Watchers program and completely overhauled our daily meals. Step 2 was getting more active, so we decided to JOG our annual Juvenile Diabetes charity walk and actually enjoyed the activity. The month following the charity walk, we signed up for our first official 5K and had an absolute blast. From that point forward I have officially been BIT by the running bug and this is my journey to becoming a RUNNER!
