This week has been a rough start. Sunday temperatures soared to about 90 degrees, Craig and I discovered that our air conditioner at our apartment did not work. We called and they said they could not come out until today to fix it! So for the past two nights, I have been sleeping in 90 degree heat which has lead to about 3 hours total of complete sleep. I feel as if I am a walking zombie. Yesterday was doable, but the no sleep has hit me hard!!.
Saturday: 4 1/2 mile run (this was hard, legs tired and lacked energy)
Upper body lift
Sunday: 45 minute walk with Cooper
Monday: 3 mile run (awesome run, legs on fire...think I had the adrenaline from the lack of sleep)
Upper Body Lift-chest and triceps
Today: 3o minutes elliptical, 10 minute cycle
Lower Body Lift
Deadlifts- 3x12 with 40 pounds
Squat Machine 2x12 60-80 pounds
Calf Raises-3x12 15 pounds
Lunges 2x10 (1 set with 10 pounds, other set with 8 pounds)
Quad Curl Machine 2x12 30 pounds
A note on today's workout, one I was lacking energy and I should have skipped it all together, but I figured since I was already laying wide awake I might as well hit the gym, two my workout called for more intense weight...but this is really my first leg workout in over several months...clue you in on sore my bum might be tomorrow :)
In other news, as noted above I will be participating in the 5 Mile Boy's Town Run. This will be my 3rd year participating in it. Last year I was unable because I had plans down at the cabin with Craig for a Memorial Day Party. This year we opted not to plan one for he has a bachelor party to attend over the weekend for his best friend. I know the course pretty well, and it is not an easy one (lots of hills) but it is doable. I am not racing to set any PR...I am just going to get out there and run!
My lunch break is over, back to the kids. I am going to pray for a good night's sleep and a working air conditioner.
Questions: What is your next race you will participate in?
Do you train for every race you run, or do you sometimes just like to have fun and run it with family and friends?
