Good morning guys & gals! It’s Thursday, so you know what that means…I don’t have to rush out the door to go to campus today. Clearly, I didn’t earn another A for effort yesterday. I was absorbed by academia all.day.long. Class. Study ServSafe. Class. Study Servsafe… I think it’s safe to say that the exam went well. I buzzed through all 90 questions in about 40 minutes. It ended up being a day of small snacks – including my last Element Bar – but I didn’t forget to celebrate Waffle Wednesday : )
2 Van’s Multigrain Waffles + Crunchy PB & 1/2 Banana …with 1% milk – mmm!
I had a great workout last night. I must’ve done something right because I was exhausted afterwards – I barely had enough energy to shower and put myself to bed – and am really sore today.
Work It out Wednesday
strength [I used a set of 10lb. weights.]
- 4 x 10 bicep curls
- 4 x 10 ‘weights to chin’
- 4 x 10 tip-toe squats
- 2 x 10 bicep curl lunges
- 2 x 10 triceps dips
- 1 x 10 arm raises
20-minute treadmill run [2.3 mi.]
- 4 minutes @ 6.6mph
- 6 minutes @ 6.8mph – incline 2.0
- 10 minutes @ 7.2mph
30-minute spin [11 mi.]
indoor track run [1 mile @ 8:55]
stretching – ahhh! [note to self: do more often.]
I was able to keep my eyes open a tad longer to skim through my new April issue of Fitness that arrived in the mail.
Look who I found! It’s the adorable Kristin @ Iowa Girl Eats.
I also stumbled across this Running Clip Tip:
“Shortening your stride by 10 percent may reduce the impact on your legs and decrease your risk of shin stress fractures by 3 to 6 percent, according to a study from Iowa State University in Ames” – Fitness Magazine.
This may explain why I have minimal to no pain in my legs and haven’t suffered any major injuries from running; I’ve got the stride of a midget.
Anyway, now that my morning is already half over, I need prepare for class. School 12:30 – 5:00. Gym. Clean up house for guests! Yep…that’s the plan.
Have a great day!
