Well I had an awesome run this morning. I decided to push harder than usual. Sometimes I think I'm just being wimpy and today I think I proved that to myself. I ran my miles 30 seconds faster than I have been. That may not seem like much but it is a lot for me. It felt great.
This weeks exercise line up is the same as last weeks:
Monday - run and strength train - upper body
Tuesday - Bike and strength train - lower body
Wednesday - video or resting
Thursday - Run and upper body
Friday Bike and lower body
Saturday - long run
Last week I started out good. I ran and then biked and then after Wednesday I didn't do anything really. I still lost weight until the weekend. I lost 2 pounds last week and then gained 1 on the weekend. I really need to get control of my weekends if I want to see this weight come off a bit faster.
I feel good and I am working on it. I just think I mentally got burnt out last week.
I found out over the weekend that a few more of my friends are training for the same race as I am and it had me a little embarrassed by my current running. That is why I pushed today and I'm so glad I did.
If you haven't found a few minutes to exercise today I would encourage you to find a few minutes for yourself and get your heart beating a little faster.
