Woo, recovered from the random 24-hr stomach bug and back into training. The past 3 weeks have been an intense increase in training overall, and I am really starting to feel it. As far as my stomach is concerned, there is no such thing as enough meat, peanut butter, and super-starchy things like rice crispies or stoned wheat thin crackers. and yes, i am that picky. nothing seems more satisfying than a nice carb-filled stoned wheat thin – plain. mmm. i wish i had some right now, but we are all out. rice & bread will have to do 😉
Back to training. We started training for the bicep curl competition – 25% of your body weight using an EZ Bar, as many reps as you can in 1min, knees on the bench (to prevent cheating). right now, I’m at 22 reps in 1min with 35lbs… to put this into context, the winners of FemSport get more into the ~70 range. I have a lot of work ahead of me.
I’m also struggling with the box jumps… mainly because my personal training sessions with Minako happen the day after either a Long run, or hill training – therefore my legs are friggin dead! paula and i do them at the same time – and i watch her do twice as many, twice as fast – go paula! (boo jen)
Training Schedule this week:
- Sunday: 12k Long Run – but I got lost and ended up running 13.5k… Hopefully that will make my 14k run next Sunday a little less shocking!
- Monday: Personal Training
- Tuesday: Hill Training – 5x
- Wednesday: Personal Training
- Thursday: Rest Day
- Friday: Hot Yoga
- Saturday:Training session
Wish me luck. And, if you could, please send me an 8th day this week, all wrapped up with a pretty bow 🙂
