I did my legs and core workout today. Kept most of the weights the same as last week, although my legs were feeling a bit fatigued so many of the exercises felt more difficult. I changed the hamstring curl from 2-legs to 1-leg, which was a nice change.

I did my regular 10.5 km run this evening. Wendy's mom is visiting for the week, so our workouts (esp Wendy's) will be a bit erratic this week.

Another 10.5 run tonight. My legs are feeling much better than they did earlier in the week. Hopefully that's a good sign for tomorrow when I'm back in the gym.

On my friday workouts, I do a bit of everything. I know that I'm going to have to come up with something better soon, but for now I just do a couple exercises that I missed in my Monday or Tuesday workouts.

So today I did chinups, dips, smith squats, smith bench press, some abs stuff, hammer curls, and a couple more sets of deadlifts. I might be forgetting a couple more.

As far as running training is going, I'm planning to start doing double long runs on the weekends. This weekend I'll start with around 20km Saturday and 15-20 Sunday. Eventually I'll work up to 35/35 or more. My first race of the season is in six weeks, and I've got lots of work to do before then.

My long run today ended up being closer to 16km rather than the planned 20. I had to meet Wendy downtown so I had watch the time. Nevertheless, it was a great day for a run. There was deep snow on some parts of the trail which made for a bit of an ankle workout.

I forgot to bring home my running gear after my Saturday long run, so I couldn't go out Sunday. Bummer. I'll see about going for a run later today, but it probably won't be a very long one (it's -30C!). Today's workout was arms. For a bit of a change, I've switched from doing lat-pulldowns to doing pullups. I can do sets of 8, and hopefully I'll be able to add some weight to that soon.

Legs and core today. I did a couple of old abs exercises that I haven't done in years. I used to be a competitive springboard diver, and did hundreds of crunches, situps, kickouts, pike-ups, etc each day. These days I'm pretty uncoordinated and lack the endurance that I once had. But the muscle memory is still there; I still remember to point my toes when I kick out. :D

Yeah, it was pretty cool. I wish I still had abs like I did in those days. :D

Today's run was a fast tempo run of 10km. It good despite being quicker than I've run in a couple months. I also did a 3km cooldown run. Actually, I had to run to make it to the comic book store before it closed! :oops: ;)

Nothing special about my run today. Gym tomorrow morning, then I'll go for a 10km run in the afternoon or evening. By then I'll be over 200km for the year to date. 8)

Nice, lots of running going on! I used to always keep track too. I'd log everything, even keeping track of how many miles a certain pair of shoes has! I think I still have my 1,000 mile shoes from high school. They are torn up!

Keep up the awesome training. Nice to see your log updated so frequently.

All the best!

Thanks robert, great to know that people are enjoying reading about my workouts. I keep a way more detailed running/workout log over at coolrunning.com. I track miles on my shoes, time, distance, weather, heart rate (sometimes), route, what I ate before and during the run, and time of day. Maybe a bit obsessive?? :D

Today's workout was the usual grab-bag of random exercises that I do on Fridays. I have been avoiding squats for a couple weeks because they were uncomfortable on my back. I kept doing deadlifts and smith squats. Today I went back to the squat rack and found them extremely easy. I plan to increase the weight next week, but I'm going to do it slowly so as not to hurt my back.

20km run this afternoon. I made sure my route today had a bunch of hills. The run felt good, and did the whole thing with only water to drink.

22.6KM run this morning with some friends. felt very good and surprisingly managed to keep up a slightly faster pace than yesterday. Drank water and ate half a Clif Bar on the run.

Wendy is off at a spinning class this morning, so she might have something interesting to tell about later today!

I tried spinning a few years ago and it nearly killed me! So, I was a little afraid when my friends invited me. But, it wasn't that bad. The instructor made it really fun by singing to the music and joking throughout the class. It was definitly a challenge, but it was fun having my friends there to go through the pain together. Plus, the instructor called us by name and asked us how we were doing from time to time. "You doin' OK Wendy?" I think it's something I'll do again. It was hard, but rewarding.

I was doing really well, even when my Mom was visiting. I didn't get in any workout sessions while she was here, but did do a lot of walking and tried to keep my diet healthy during all of the restaurant visits. My weight didn't change at all. But as now that she's gone, I'm finding it hard to get back to healthy eating, and my weight has gone up.

I did get in a really good workout on Wednesday, but then slacked on Thursday and Friday. I'll try to get back into the swing of things this week. Mark and I are just about to head out to the grocery store to pick up some fresh fruits and veggies to help me get back to a healthy eating plan. Health Canada just released a new Food Guide that is somewhat interactive, so I went ahead and made my own personal Food Guide. Hope it helps. Wish me luck.
