Monday Here And Gone..
Man Am I still sore from Sunday's training. I got a new treadmill aka Hamster wheel. It does everything. I love it. It is used I got it from Craig's List. I used it on Sunday. I did my 45 minute cardio on it. Not bad at all. Here is what I did on Sunday.
Day# 4, 45 min. cardio, and set A resistance. So for cardio I picked steady joging on the tm. This thing is way faster than the ones in the gym. So I started at my normal pace 4.5 speed, then I ramped it up to 5.0 I can only run that 2 min. at a time then I would take it down and walk. Then when I would catch my breath I would go back up to 5.0 I did 3.07 miles. Towards the end I was slowing down. I was walking more, having a hard time catching my breath. I hate that!!!
Here is set A
10 stability ball lowers, I didn't do these don't know how.
30 second stability ball planks, it's all about balance.
30 jumping jacks
stability ball chess press 12 reps then right into
stability ball flies 12 reps
1 minute butt kicks
1 minute wall sit ,this can get really hard
12 sumo squats with bicep curl
I am suppose to do this 3 times well of course this never happen since we have teen drama.
Then yesterday I took as a day off. I am sore but not like yesterday. When I had to get up from sitting man oh man. And then go back to sitting, whoa.. that was sore.
Today is just one hour of cardio. I thought I would go do a spin class today. It's an hour and it's cardio.
I took my bike to the shop on Saturday and found out I have a bent derailer. So today I am going to see if I can get it replaced by the people I bought it through. It is still covered. This is why it wasn't changing gears correctly, and this is why I was having such a hard time adjusting the gears. No biking again. :( It will be race ready for June. I got the time off for the race. Sweet!!!!
I have to work three 12 hours days coming up in a row. I don't like to do this but One of three is ot. Then again the following week. I am worried how this is going to effect me with my training. It is rough, I am hoping for an easy three days compare to last week.
My wonderful friend Kate is getting ready for her first triathlon in Disney. I am so excited for her. I wish I could be there to support her. Please go say hi to her and wish her the best!!!
The race is May 10.
Here is Trainer Bob's challenge for Today.
