After the gym yesterday.
We did some light cardio, but we mostly go to lift weights. I worked my arms and thighs hard, and oooooooh my goodness…OUCH. Lol
I’m happy to report that I’m actually improving. I was able to do more reps on the bench this time. Woot!!
My running has improved as well. My endurance has increased, and I’ve gotten faster. Seeing these results is the best motivation.
Tonight will have to be just cardio though, because like I said…ouch.
3 miles yesterday.
Not a bad start to the week. I should take my old running shoes to the office and leave them there. I could squeeze in a couple of miles during the lunch hour.
I’m hoping to find some good hiking this weekend. I don’t want to fall behind just because we’re on a mini vacation.
We walked seven miles today: from my place, around forest park, and back.
So now I’ve completed 7/30 miles for June!
And I think/hope that this kidney infection is on its way out.
is always the answer to relieving my stress & anxiety. I always feel so much better about myself and about life afterward. There is no drug that can provide this same feeling.
I did 5k tonight. I think I want to do the 10k Go STL (Halloween) race in October. I have some work to do in order to pull that off, but I love having goals so yay.
Two years ago I ran the October half-marathon. I’d love to do it again, but I just don’t think my knee can handle it.

**Friday 8/1 wasn’t supposed to be a rest day, but that was a bad day, so oh well. There was also too much drinking this weekend, but it was worth it. I had the best time.
Overall, I think I’m doing quite well. I have all kinds of workouts planned for this week. I’m going to step it up a notch. I’m going to try Shred (Level 3) for the first time. Yikes.
