It’s official, I hate running indoors. I don’t like the treadmill and I don’t like the track, but I still completed another three miles of half marathon training and did arm weights afterwards.
For morning fuel, I had a quarter of a HUGE Fugi apple (what are they putting in those things these days?!) and some peanut butter…Krema peanut butter to be exact. I love this peanut butter not only for it’s taste, but because the only ingredient is peanuts! Now that’s how peanut butter should be!
For the first 2 miles, I ran something kind of like this on the treadmill:
After that, I went and ran one mile on the track upstairs. Then, I completed this arm workout:
Flies (lying on back) 7.5 lbs 20 reps
Tricep Pullovers (lying on back) 7.5 lbs 20 reps
Chest Press (lying on back) 7.5 lbs 15 reps
Tricep Kickbacks, one arm at a time 7.5 lbs 15 reps
Upward Rows 5 lbs 15 reps
Don’t know the name of this one: Put arms at 90 degrees with elbows in line with shoulders and close arms in front of your face and open 5 lbs 15 reps
Overhead press 5 lbs 15 reps
I then stretched, and headed down to the locker room to get ready. Here is my dirty little secret
I am really good at making myself look like a didn’t workout without having to shower and taking up minimal time (This morning…15 min!!)
After…Is that the same girl?
I know to some people it might sound a little gross, not showering after a sweaty workout, but when you don’t have time to shower here are some tips:
Blow dry your sweaty hair on cool, if you do it on hot you will just sweat more
Bring a curling iron to lightly curl hair and get kinks out from your pony holder
Freshen up on deoderant
Spritz body spray
Put on some makeup
Pack an outfit that is simple, cute, and comfy…like a dress. I love dresses because I can just throw it on and the outfit is on!
You may also try a “dry” shampoo. I don’t have any experience with that, but if I give it a try I will let you know!
After my workout, I had a Fiber 1 bar…these things are seriously like candy too me, don’t want to eat too many though…
I also wore my new shoes for the first time today. I have to say, they felt great!! 🙂 Gotta love good fitting shoes.
The kids want to go out to lunch today…hope it’s tasty!
