- It’s ‘me’ time.
- The feeling of being fierce.
- The faces on the people when you tell them you’re a runner.
- It’s my escape.
- It’s the closest thing to flying.
- Because the soreness in the morning feels so good.
- It’s good for my body.
- It’s good for my soul.
- Running in the rain makes me feel free.
- Because of that one power song.
- The victory of the last hill.
- Colorful sneakers.
- Cute running clothes.
- Because it makes me stronger, inside and out.
I look forward to the weekend because I get to do a good workout with no time restrictions and I usually hit the gym with my friend whose gym is pure golden luxurious palace in comparison to my little hut of a gym! So I done the following:
Saturday: Legs/ Abs
Squats with barbell 4×10 reps + (now pushing a max of 50kg now with 6 reps)
Deadlifts 3×10 (max of 35kg, sure I could go to 40kg)
Alternating step back lunges 3x1min
Jump wood chops 3x1min
Side lunge with rotation 3x1min
Russian twist 3x1min
Crazy ivans 3x1min
Kick downs 3x1min
Sunday: Run. Legs feeling like lead from previous session, ran about 6k run but positive it was 7k as was running for about 45mins but my garmin stopped midway – so lost a chunk of my run :-(
So its Monday today and this is how Im feeling …
My legs are still mashed but pain is only temporary! I should do back/biceps tonight but know its gonna be a hard session so will try and syke myself up for it. Workout for the week is looking like so;
Monday: Shoulders Tuesday: Swim Wednesday: Rest (love rest days and feel better for it) Thursday: Back/ biceps Friday: Cardio/ Legs/ Abs/ Triceps Saturday: Run Sunday: Rest
