Good luck with your car.

I use a spreadsheet for tracking my workouts, but I don't write anything down while in the gym. I just remember the weights I want to lift on my way in and remember everything I lifted afterwards. Figure I should exercise the brain muscle at the same time!

I don't remember cause I am usually so pumped and excited. I found it best to write everything down. I tried remembering only to fail epically lol


BAHHHHHH its the power steering pump gone to pot!!! Goodbye $270 that I don't have to spare.......

Today is the last 5k I will be doing for a while. Until I find someone to sponsor my runs or until hours improve at work. Gonna be kinda sad... I don't want to be competitive today but I do. Will just play it by ear cause my shoulder is terribly upset again today probably from having to crank the steering wheel so much yesterday lol. If it ain't one thing its another with me huh??

Ok today was my second 5k. I found out AFTER the run that we ran quarter mile farther.... I came in 385 out of 985 in a time of 34:48. I was 36th in my age group out of 100 women. I must remember that baggy clothes make me look fatter than I actually am!!! Omg I saw this pic and thought I looked huge!

Well done, sharp time considering it was a long 5km!
Bummer about the steering, these things always crop up when you least expect them aye. I hope the race made up for it and put a smile back on your face.

I found a program that is 13 weeks long so will be doing that on the treadmill 3 days a week. Of course would love to find a 10k that doesn't contain a lot of hills... I was surprised at how not sore I was last night after the run unlike the first one I did where my quads and knees were so sore that any slight movement brought tears to my eyes and last night I was dancing around, jumping, etc

BTW I feel like I should measure out a quarter of a mile run it like I did yesterday and time myself so I can see exactly how long it takes me and subtract it off my time yesterday to see if there was ANY improvement

Step ups: 5 sets 45 lb bar 5 reps each leg
Leg extensions: 120 lbs 5 reps, 4 sets 135 lbs 5 reps

I hit 2 new personal bests; 180 on hack squat previous was 140 and 730 on leg press previous 720.

Post workout
2 scoops pea and rice blend protein powder
1 scoop carbs

Breakfast
2/3c oats
1 1/3c coconut milk
1 banana

Just don't increase the distance that you run by any more than 10% a week. So for example, if you are running 5km as you longest run this week the longest you would run for next week is 5.5km if that makes sense?

Are you following a programme for the 10km or just training yourself?

I am following a program. Here is the first 4 weeks of it:

Week 1

Session 1 - 34 min. Run 1 minute. Walk 2 minutes. Do this 8 times.
Session 2 - 28 min. Run 1 minute. Walk 2 minutes. Do this 6 times.
Session 3 - 31 min. Run 1 minute. Walk 2 minutes. Do this 7 times.

Week 2

Session 1 - 38 min. Run 2 minutes. Walk 2 minutes. Do this 7 times.
Session 2 - 31 min. Run 1 minute. Walk 2 minutes. Do this 7 times.
Session 3 - 34 min. Run 2 minutes. Walk 2 minutes. Do this 6 times.

Week 3

Session 1 - 45 min. Run 3 minutes. Walk 2 minutes. Do this 7 times.
Session 2 - 34 min. Run 2 minutes. Walk 2 minutes. Do this 6 times.
Session 3 - 40 min. Run 3 minutes. Walk 2 minutes. Do this 6 times.

Week 4 - EASY RECOVERY WEEK

Session 1 - 40 min. Run 3 minutes. Walk 2 minutes. Do this 6 times.
Session 2 - 30 min. Run 2 minutes. Walk 2 minutes. Do this 5 times.
Session 3 - 40 min. Run 2 minutes. Walk 3 minutes. Do this 6 times.


Let's just say that with the 5k runs I just went out and did them no training no nothing really. My running days are Sun, Tues, Thurs only because those are either my active rest day or smaller muscle group days.
