Saturday, I had to attend an event at Dan's library. Yes, I had to give up BodyCombat class in order to attend a work-like event that I didn't even get paid for. But Dan planned this program and wanted me there, and supporting your husband even though Saturday BodyPump is your favorite thing of the week, is what marriage is all about, I guess! So I got Tracy to run with me in the morning. I knew that if I was on my own, I wouldn't have worked out before the event and I probably wouldn't have worked out afterward. It was a nice cool morning, but the humidity was still 94%. What is up with that? Is it always that humid and I just forget? Again, it didn't make us any faster. But it was a nice run. We only walked 4 times, which seems like an improvement.
So Sunday I really wanted to take a BodyCombat class. It is at 1:00. That's a hard time to know what and how much to eat. Around 11 o'clock I had a bagel and cream cheese. This seems like enough time to digest. It seems like carbs would be the best for my stomach. But within 15 minutes of class starting, I had severe stomach cramps. Like what I used to call ovary pain. Lower than my actual stomach. This used to happen when I would run. Maybe from running too fast. Maybe from dairy. I never did figure it out. But it was so painful. I attempted to power through for another 15 minutes, but I couldn't jump and I wasn't getting the most out of class, so I left after 30 minutes. Luckily, I wasn't in pain when I wasn't doing cardio. So I stayed for another 40 minutes doing some shoulder and bicep work. I did all 5x5 with heavy weights and felt really strong afterward.
Monday, I wanted to do a workout outside that I could involve Dan in. He likes to walk on the trail as I run ahead. It was 80 degrees and I was interested in how hard that would be. But it was only 50% humidity and it was so much easier than all those morning runs with 90-95% humidity. I wish I could teach Tracy that so she would meet me in the evening. But at least I can get back to my evening run. I have been avoiding it because of the "heat" but now I remember that the heat isn't the problem. I did the 4:1 intervals. It felt so much easier, but I only shaved three seconds off my time. So that is actually surprising to me.
Tuesday was my rest day. I made sure to get my 13,000 steps in though. I am really rocking my Stepbet. Though it does take a night walk to get that many steps. I can't just sit around work all day and then sit on the couch.
Wednesday I ended up taking a two hour nap in the evening. I don't know why I'm so tired. But I didn't get a workout in.
Thursday I did chest/tricep day. I mixed it up with some half mile runs and a lot of heavy 5x5 weights. I felt strong again.
Friday I was off of work, so I was able to take a BodyCombat class. This one went much better than earlier in the week. And I finished up with some back work.
