Eeek… I jus realized I have written 3 posts in one day. I guess I had a lot to say!
After work I did a 4 mile run. It was great. I was nervous at first cause my Saturday and Sunday runs weren’t so hot but this one was great. Final stats: 4.1 miles, 37:47. Pretty darn good.
I tested out my new Garmin, the Garmin FR60. I got it for my birthday. I have the Polar F6 but I wanted something that would track my pace and distance. But I don’t have the foot pod yet, so for right now I just used it as a heart rate monitor. I am excited to start using it to track my pace.
My run ended at my gym where I did back and bicep exercises. Here is what I did:
- Assisted pull-ups – 3 sets of 10 at 100lbs
- Row machine- 3 sets of 10 at 55lbs
- Bicep curls with the rope pull- 3 sets of 10 at 45lbs
- Hammer curls with a bar- 4 sets of 12 at 35lbs
- Bicep curls – 2 sets of 20 at 10lbs
I also ended with crunches:
- 50 regular crunches with legs flat on the floor
- 50 bicycle crunches
- Captains chair- 3 sets of 15 (alternating with bent knees and straight legs)
Overall another great workout. Gym was packed which I hate, so I I had to make my workout quick and efficient. I missed out on one last back exercise which was lat pull downs but that machine was being used every time I walked past.
When I got home I made myself a protein shake using this powder. I like it. My husband says it has a “supplement taste” to it whatever that means, but I think it tastes good. Better than Muscle Milk. That I just can’t swallow.
Oh and there is my puppy. My BFF, Willis Bojangles.
Dinner was light since I wasn’t that hungry. I took a recipe of a Warm Grapefruit and Quinoa Salad. It was refreshing but made me realize for sure that I do not like grapefruit, even mixed in with other things. So I pushed most of the grapefruit aside and ate the rest of the salad.
Now it is Big Brother time. Am I the only one who is hooked on this show?
