Happy Last Day of September 🙂
Denver was freezing this weekend, but is giving us a nice week to start off the new month — so even though it’s Monday morning, no complaints from this girl.
Thanks to my restful afternoon, I was VERY well rested and enjoyed a relaxing evening watching football and eating pizza and cookies 🙂
Not a bad night, right? 😉
I woke up this morning actually feeling good and didn’t have to work too hard at talking myself into a work out.
Workout of the Day: 10 miles stationary bike: 30 minutes strength
The strength portion of the work out was broken into 3 sets of 15, doing 2 different superset mini circuits.
- bicep curl (20 lbs)
- shoulder press (20 lbs)
- lateral raise (20 lbs)
- 60 second plank
The second mini circuit was
- incline sit ups
- bicycle crunches
- leg lifts
By the time I finished each set — I was TOAST. A good sign of a good workout.
I thought about my workout plan for the week while I was on the bike:
Workout Plan for the Week:
- Monday: 10 miles bike, 30 minutes strength
- Tuesday: 5 mile run
- Wednesday: STRENGTH / Yoga
- Thursday: 5 mile run
- Friday: REST
- Saturday: 13 mile run — EESH
- Sunday: Recovery run/bike
A few elements that MAY change this week:
- I am taking a blogging class tomorrow, so I may switch yoga to tomorrow and do back-to-back runs.
- We may hike this weekend, which would probably change Sunday’s plans.
Otherwise, I am hoping to stick as close to this as possible. This is my last extended long run — after this week I am dropping mileage and beginning tapering — with a 10 and 9 mile long runs before the race. AHHH it’s getting real! 🙂
And now — it’s time to hit the ground running at work. Happy Monday, All! 🙂
Question of the Day: Does it feel like Fall where your at? Are the leaves changing?
Unfortunately Colorado doesn’t really have much “color” but we do know it’s Fall by the mountains starting to show snow tops!
