Saturday I had to work, so I started my week with a rest day. That's sort of weird for me, but oh well.
Sunday I got a pretty good workout in. SheSweat has us doing this Chest and Back workout as a circuit. There is no way I can do all these things in a row. And there is no way I am doing strange things like jumping jacks in front of my gym mates. That's just not something people do there. So I broke the group into two sets of circuits and added laps around the track in between each set. I liked that it kept my heartrate up. And luckily I was at the gym at a pretty slow time, so I didn't feel bad leaving my weights out for a minute.
Monday was arm day, and it was the same sort of thing. Not able to do the plan exactly, and not willing to do Butt Kicks in the weight room. So I did laps and shorter circuits.
Tuesday morning, Tracy and I got up and ran. I told her we needed a plan and I programed my phone for Run3/Walk2 interval run. Tracy wasn't looking forward to it, but agreed. She tried to quit a few times, but I made her and she loved it when we were done. And our time was faster than any of our winter runs. We weren't running fast. But it was good to make ourselves run when we usually don't. Like up the hills.
Wednesday icy struck the city and it took me 56 minutes to drive the 22 minutes to work. There is something stressful about driving on ice and it ruined my entire day. I was certain one of my coworkers would call in, and I would have to work the evening, so I didn't pack my gym clothes and then I ended up just going home after work. Anyway, Wednesday was an unplanned rest day.
Thursday was a planned rest day. I finally celebrated my birthday with my in-laws.
So Friday night I had to drag myself to the gym. And I did. It was leg day, but I was hesitant to use the squat rack. My good knee ended up hurting the last time I did, and that's the last thing I need. So I did the leg press machine instead and got just as good of leg workout. I ran a mile hoping to beat my last time of 10:39 but I was two or three seconds short. It's really hard to make up time once you know you need to. Short and sweet.
