Daily Run: Needing Some RainJuly 24, 2008 at 10:37 am | Posted in Daily Run, Strength Training | 1 Comment
Time of Day: 6:40 AM
Weather: Very humid. Breezy. Looked like it was about to storm but didn’t.
Duration: 52 min.
Estimated Distance (based on assumed pace of 7:35/mile): 6.86 miles
Notes: I was tired when I got up this morning and for once was not looking forward to my run. This might be because I knew that I was making myself lift weights afterwards. I drove over to the gym and started my run from the parking lot. Like the rest of me, my legs felt a little sleepy. They eventually warmed up and I ran decently. Hopefully today’s flatter, softer route will wake them up for tomorrow.
It was nasty humid and I am still waiting for rain. I’m not one of those people who likes rainy days, but my lawn needs it and the air needs to be cleared out. I have a trip to the farmer’s market planned for this afternoon, so I’m hoping the rain gets out of the way early or waits until later.
After I ran I did 2 sets of 15 reps of the following arm exercises (similar to what I always do):
- Lat pulldown
- Lat row
- Should press
- Vertical butterfly
- Chest press
- Bicep curls
- Tricep dips/extensions
I also did:
- 28 inclined sit-ups holding a 6 lb. medicine ball
- 25 back extensions
- My ART home therapy exercises (Spoiler alert! Will show you these when I figure out how to do video!)
- The core workout that I’m doing, which I have linked in the side bar. I’m in the Dynamic Phase Week 3
I felt like a machine in the weight room, but this long workout definitely caught up to me by the time I got to the Turkish Get-Ups in my core workout. I weighed myself when I was done and I definitely need to guzzle some water today because running + weights + high humidity = incredible sweat loss. I was starving by the time I got home.
