Workout(s) of the day

Today I killed it at the gym. KILLED IT. I did Couch to 10K Week 4 Day 1 – I decided to go back and try to pick up speed. And did I ever – I ran the first 2 portions at 6.0, and the last portion at 6.2. Now, the chick on the treadmill next to me was racing away at 7.4, but I’m not going to compare my speed to anyone’s but my own…and for me, this speed.was.awesome. Even if it was just short bursts of running! I could totally handle it.

Then it was time for P90X Chest, Shoulders, and Triceps aka the Most Humbling of All P90X workouts. I lifted heavy today. I did 8 plyo pushups. 8!! Okay they were on my knees but still. That’s awesome for me.

After that, a couple of Blogilates videos (abs and stretching) then a 3-mile walk home. I don’t know where all this energy came from – I was down with a pretty bad cold last week (despite having a green smoothie every day) and did only one half-hearted Core Synergistics workout (It was recovery week). I guess I stored it up?

Today also turned out to be my intermittent fasting day. I was pretty busy with exercise and job-searching so it just kind of happened. No boredom eating today.

So this Couch to 5K program really does work – I never ever thought that I would be a runner. And enjoy it. And try to improve. If you’d like to try it too, head over toΒ KTJ’s Spring Training link-up and join us! I love having internet friends that are interested in fitness – it’s really keeping me motivated.




  1. Whoa!! You DID kill it!! Can I borrow some of that energy!!?? Great job!!

  2. Wow! This is so impressive and motivating to read! 3 miles home AFTER all of that working out. Crazy! DO you like the plan for the couch to 10K?

  3. Holy! You were on fire!! πŸ™‚ Love that energy. Wish I had it. πŸ™‚

  4. Congrats on killing it! That is so awesome!!!!

  5. I don’t think I could EVER do 7.4 and 5 – 5.5 is about as fast as I can go and that’s really not something I even enjoy! Way to go!!

I'd love to hear from you
