Struggled to get round a easy 3.5 mile run last felt like my legs had nothing in them at all, it just seemed so hard to even get going.

Tonight is 5k race pace, hopefully that will go well!

So 13 days until the Vancouver Half Marathon, glad we took the challenge of 13.1 miles on!!!

Ok so lately I have not been tracking my food etc so got the old excel spreadsheet and calculated macros etc. I have been not as strict as last year since about the new year mainly due to some stresses like trying apply to stay in Canada permanently, moving and some other stuff. But I am ready to lose a few excess pounds I know I have added some muscle but along with that some excess weight so my goal is to lose 10lbs I have entered the 6 week cellucor challenge on bodybuilding.com.

Todays workout Shoulders and Triceps

DB Shoulder Press 15/12 20/10 27.5/9
Side laterals 10/10 17.5/10
Low Pulley 15/7
Reverse Flyes 10/12 17.5/13
Tricep Pushdown 30/12 40/12
Lying tricep extension 10/10 25/5
Seated Tricep Press 25/10 37.59

Cardio 16 Minute run 1% incline distance 1.77 miles . I just go as fast as I can for 16 minutes!! Love it!!

I plan on updated my journal for every workout, its one of my daily disciplines so IT must be done!!

I am Portia Phelps, a Mass machine. I eat as planned and train with great intensity

Excellent Workout as I have not been lifting as heavy recently due to training for Half Marathon , My numbers are a bit low but good news is every week I am increasing.

this knot in my shoulder has been giving me grief , so yesterday I had a shiatsu massage on it , its a bit sore today but hoping it will improve.
