Been a little bit since I've posted on here. Nothing really exciting has happened in the past week or so. I went for my first run in the snow this past Wednesday. I went about 4 miles and I was surprised at how warm I stayed. I was actualy sweating! I thought for sure I would freeze, lol. Hopefully I can keep that up so I can train and be useful for all seasons and conditions, not just perfect weather and gyms.
I was able to use my training to be useful recently. Nothing major, but I was out for my run when my sister-in-law called me to tell me she was stuck in traffic and asked if I could go get the kids. I ran about a mile and a half in 9 min. to get there on time. Like I said, nothing major but it is nice to see all this training pay off occasionally.
I've been running pretty consistently and working on distance on saturdays. I ran 9 miles this last saturday, though it was on a treadmill. I plan on doing my first mini marathon in April so run I must!
Gosh all I seem to think about is running anymore. I plan on starting to work on strength again later today. I'm going to run 5 miles than just do like a basic pushup, pull up, pistol, and ab workout. I think I'm going to start doing the pistols on balance boards just to give me an extra challenge in the least amount of time. No sense wasting time on stuff that has little impact anymore.
Maybe I'll do plyo pushups and pull ups as well, then L-sits and variations for abs. I'm going to try and do that workout about 6 days a week plus running and a longer yoga workout on Sundays plus lots of rest!
Also, more good news. I took my body fat again and it said I was up to 16.9%! Which isn't "normal" but its not crazy low anymore. I think for an athlete thats considered normal. I need to do a caliper test soon just to make sure I'm getting an accurate reading. I know my body fat is low but as for how low I'm not exactly sure.
Maybe the fact that I'm underweight has something to do with the fact that I feel so sleepy all the time. I mean, running 9 miles in the morning after a good 7 hour sleep and plenty of food shouldn't make me feel like I wanna hibernate should it? idk, if I'm not running I wanna sleep, and that can't be a good sign.
Well, my next client is about to come in so I'll post my workout later tonight!
