Yesterday my new pair of winter runners arrived. I’m not a Nike sneaker person anymore – just their clothes. I switched to Saucony as my brand of choice and remain pretty faithful to them, however, when I was doing a search for winter/weatherproof running shoes, the Nike Structure Triax II came up on sale. I tried them out this morning and they’re great! I would have bought Saucony but didn’t see what I was looking for in the description.
Getting out of bed was a real chore. The alarm went off and it was a total surprise. I was having a great dream and at a really good point where I just wanted to finish it. Can’t remember what it was but I DO remember it was a good one.
I did get out of bed … about 2 minutes later than normal. I know this because I always glance at the clock on Ted’s side of the bed to check the time while on the way to the bathroom. Once downstairs, I had a Dymatize Smooth Banana shake. Managed to pump out 26 minutes on the T/M and 10 minutes on the Elliptical. Then I heard the weather for the next 4 days. I decided I had to get Shane out for a long walk/jog today because we probably wouldn’t be going far in the sub zero weather that was headed our way.
My leg workout was a quicky, 20 minutes. I did 4 sets of everything, 12 reps., with hardly a breath or a sip of water in between. I left all the weights Ted had on the equipment and didn’t change anything to speed things up.
- Squats + Leg Curls
- Dead Lifts + Leg Extensions
- Leg Presses + Seated Calf Raises (Did 20 reps each of these two)
- 50 crunches.
We managed a 4.12 mile walk/jog today in about 50 or so minutes.
Breakfast was Bobs Red Mill Steel Cut Oats cooked with a Vanilla Chai Tea bag and 1/2 chopped,peeled apple. The shake was another scoop of Dymatize Elite Smooth Banana with about 1/2 cup FUZE and 20 fresh raspberries. I had the 1/2 apple that was left on the side.
I came across a great site yesterday while surfing: Beyond Salmon Helen, the blog owner, teaches cooking. I expect nothing but great things when I check out her blog weekly.
Look who bid me farewell this morning on my way to work.
Busy day – gotta get with it. Have a super one!
