Crazy sore

Well, I missed my weekly update by 2 days. Not bad considering I'm still getting back into the swing of things.

For this round of half marathon training, I decided that I wanted to incorporate more things than just running. I wanted to add weights, arms, lunges (gasp!) and abs. With this in mind, last Monday was my first go at it.
I did legs and back. My workout consisted of lat pull downs, multiple kinds of rows, squats, lunges and plie squats. I had planned on doing 3 sets of 15 reps of everything and only managed to get 2 sets done but I was TOAST!!

I woke up Tuesday morning and could.not.move! I was doing the hobble/wobble/walk thing until Thursday! I even tried to run/walk on the treadmill on Wednesday to try and shake my legs out with no luck. By Friday, I was back to normal and was able to do 6 miles Saturday morning.

As far as food goes, I was ambitious and made a breakfast of scrambled eggs and sausage for the week as well as a dinner/ lunch meal. For my dinner meal, I made shake n bake chicken tenders and roasted carrots and rutabagas.

In addition to my other expeditions, I have been working on my yard. It had these baby trees surrounding my back patio. I kept them to hide my motorcycle but since I've decided to sell my motorcycle b/c I don't have a garage, I don't need the trees anymore. I've been slowing hacking them down with a pair of lawn laupers and finally finished!

baby trees were pretty dense





Also, this week I finally tried my new pair of running pants. They are 2XU brand and I got them for $35 instead of $80 with an ACTIVE deal. They were quite comfy and light. I did leg work in them yesterday and they were nice. We'll see how they do on a run. They are 7/8 length which was perfect for my stumpy legs!

Today is election day and I voted. I'm not sure why but I love these little stickers!!

Since I am able to walk today after my Monday leg workout, I'm hopefull that the hobble/wobbles are behind me until I mix things up again. I took today off from the gym and watched V for Vendetta since it is November 5th after all. Remember, remember! 

What kinds of things do you do besides running? Any favorite moves?
