Weight Exercises for March (Push)

Started a new exercise program today. It's my 3rd different routine since the new year. I find that changing it up every 4 to 6 weeks keeps me from getting bored and more importantly motivated to keep at it.

I do a 2 day split, divided by push/pull exercises. Day 1 and 3 are push exercises and day 2 and 4 are pull exercises. Today I started with the push exercises.

Weight Exercises for March (Pull)

Today was Day 2 of my new workout program. I did the pull muscle group.

Crosstraining day

Wednesday is usually my crossing training day. Depending how I feel. Usually I go to spin class, but I got out of work early & headed over to the Y & decided to get on a stationary bike & just listen to my music. Definitely didn't feel the energy as I usually do in spin class. Music pumping & the instructor's motivational yells. Gave up after 35 minutes.

When I got off the bike the my hamstrings were killing me. That would be from the deadlifts I did the day before. Note to self... stretch.

Morning run

Woke up early this morning to go for a 10 km run. Now I'm not a morning person by any stretch of the imagination but I'm starting to enjoy my Thursday morning runs. Feels good to get that out of the way and the weather was beautiful today.

I went to Hero Burger for lunch & ate a 6 oz burger, fries & vanilla milkshake. Pretty much wasted my 10 k run. Oh well, it was good, but I'll never get all of that food again. Probably just stick to the burger & go only once a month.

Training for a Half-Marathon

This week & next are my most intense training period for the half-marathon I am doing in April in Waterloo. On Thursday this week I ran 7 miles and this morning I ran 12 miles.

Next week I will be running my usual 5 k on Monday & running intervals on Tuesday (5 miles + warm up & cool down). But here's the kicker, I will be running 8 miles (13 km) on Thursday & 13 miles on Saturday. Ouch!
