runforfun - where are you? i don't generally use the computer on the weekend, so i didn't post, but i really enjoy these threads, so please don't stop making them. maybe a week long thread (like someone else mentioned) would be easier than daily?
ok, i did 20 minutes abs/arms with the p.t. usually do 30 minutes but we had to spend some time taking body fat measurements...woo-hoo...nothing like that to start the week off right. then did 50 minutes on the treadmill walking.
I did my strengthening calisthenics and weights at the gym today on my lunch break...I'm scheduled for an off day from running since I ran 12.5 yesterday--so today was yoga and stay out of the cold.
Too cold and windy (-27C/30kph) so 6.6 milesin 60 min on the TM. Warmup for 15 min. Then threshold workout for 45 min at 8:48. Felt easy at first, progressing to medium hard towards the end. No leg fatigue from lactate. Breathing under control, but labored towards the end. All in all a great first run. I will run again this evening after my daughter does her 16k long run.
I had not worked out - So I did not post.
4 Miles on TM @ Lunch at recovery speed - Was a good workout weekend and lunch run was just to warm up the muscles so I could stretch them and my IT Band.
Daily Double for me today. 8-miler on the indoor track at 5:30am and 6-miler this evening again on the indoor track. Back to the track tomorrow morning. Hope to run outside Wednesday morning as the low temp is forecasted for the 20''s!
To cold (low 50's) to run outside last night so I did 50 minutes of intervals on the treadmill. Also did shoulder work. I need to build up stability in my shoulders - past rotor cuff issues. I have a tendency to go after the weights to hard to early and end up hurting myself. Hard to swim with bad wings!!!
