Monday - Strength
Upper Body - Abs - Little Lower Body
I used some weights for the first time in a really long time. I think I'm going to be sore tomorrow.
Tuesday - 3 Miles
3.11 miles - 29:13 - 9:23 pace
An early morning run to kick off the day. First mile felt solid, second mile felt great, third - not so much. I started dragging. I realized over the past few days that it's going to take me a little while to get back to where I was. So I have to stop comparing this to that. I'll get back there. I just can't assume I'm going to do it tomorrow, or this week. I am not going to beat 27:16 this weekend. But I will soon. Last training taught me to be tough and grind away. This time around is teaching me patience. It will come.
Wednesday - 5 x 400m
Treadmill - 4 reps of .25 miles, 8:00 pace for 2:00, sprint across campus for 1:03
I only had about 15 mins to do this, so I tried to make the most of it. I am sweaaaatyy
Thursday - 3 Miles
3.11 miles - 28:59 - 9:18 pace
Pretty good run! I felt strong for the most part. I am very optimistic considering I had to stop and walk for a block (thanks Chipotle...), so I probably would have fallen just over the 28:00 mark. I'm happy with this!
Friday - Rest
Bikram Yoga - 90 minute class
Saturday - Cross
Climbed Mount Elbert, the tallest mountain in CO - 14,433 feet
About 12 hours round trip, a grueling mountain, but one of the best accomplishments since moving to Denver. I'll be writing a full post about this soon! :)
Sunday - 5K Race
I was totally planning on doing a race today, but I'm still really sore from the climb. It would kill my legs.
Weekly Weigh In
Peak weight: 284
Training starting weight: 228
Last week: 226.8
Current weight: 221.6
Training goal weight: 209 (75 lb mark)
Comments: Finally, the first good week of training. I hit all the runs, have been focusing on my eating, and have just all around felt like my fitness is getting back on track. This is the week I needed to slingshot me toward where I want to be.
