          I guess I kind of fell off the planet last week.... Oops. Too bad, too, because I had a pretty good week with over 35 mikes run, over 5 miles on the elliptical and two good weight workouts.  On to a new week, right??


          I hope you feel better soon, Gordon. It seems like so many people have been sick this winter with some form of the crud.

            Good morning all, and thank you Gordon, for setting us up once again.


            Mon: 5K Run/Walk + Strength UB - DONE! Keeping my HR @ 150 max is a real pain. In the end what I did was run 90 sec / walk 45 sec. That way I managed to keep my HRavg @ 149. But I didn't know that till I finished of course Wink , which BTW took forever, I've never done a 5K this slow, a full 40 minutes Shocked I had the day off, so later that afternoon I worked my Chest, Back and Shoulders. After dinner, I did my own core mix.

            Tue: Strength LB - DONE! Did Cardio Leg Blast, alternating traditional exercises with cardio.

            Wed: 5K Run/Walk + Strength UB - Run is in the bag! This run/walking thing makes me feel like I haven't done any running yet.  I was slower than Monday, ah well, at least I mad an effort.

            Thu: Boxing - DONE! Nice!

            Fri: 5K Run/Walk + Strength LB - DONE! My butt hurts (in a good way). Wanted to do the run after work, but my quads were sore from the biking. Oh who am I kidding, I never run after work.

            Sat: Cardio HiiT - did the short version (20 minutes), but it still counts Wink

            Sun: 5K Run/Walk - DONE! Was a slow but very nice run. Wasn't frustrated with the whole run/walk thing today. Actually, it felt easy and fun.

            I go running in the early morning, before my brain figures out what I'm up to.

            Run the day, or the day runs you.
