Last night my workout was great! I got to they gym early enough to run 3 miles. 3 good feeling, fast miles! Then I did Body pump. I have to tell you, I felt so strong. SO strong.
There were 2 dudes in class last night. I would say the guys were about 19/20 years old and they both looked like they were in decent shape. Now,
allow me and my big head to brag a little I couldn’t help but notice that I lifted more weight than them for everything. No joke. I was so proud of myself.
I know it’s not a great trait to have but typically I spend my time checking out other chicks and their bodies. Not last night. Last night I was watching the weights I used compared to other people and I felt so strong. I guess it is true, I would rather be strong than skinny.
Here is a blog post from one of my more favorite blogs. I think her post was really interesting and probably speaks to a lot of people. I tried to think about how this idea of disordered eating applies to me. And honestly, I feel like my eating habits are actually really healthy. In the morning after a run I always make sure to have some protein and carb (preferably in the form of chocolate milk and a banana) and I never restrict myself from eating anything. For the most part, I eat anything I want just in moderation unless I am having a fat day and I eat everything in copious amounts.
This morning I did 5 miles on the treadmill. It was supposed to be 6. 1 mile warm up, 4 miles @8:10 and 1 mile cool down. Well, I don’t know if it is because I didn’t have coffee or what, but it was TOUGH dude. Like, KILL me tough.
I completed 1 mile warm up, 2 miles at 8:00 and 2
horrid miles at 8:06. They were tough. I was pissed too because last night I ran 3 miles at 7:43 pace no problem. Next week I am going to make sure to run my speed workout in the afternoon to see if it makes a difference. Oh yea…and that 1 mile cool down. HA. How about a 0.15 mile walk instead?
I am hoping to make it to yoga tonight at a new yoga studio. I will let you know how it goes!
Have a good day 🙂
