Workouts: Jan 3 – 9

Again, like the first Workouts blog, this is mainly for me to keep track of what I’m doing to get ready for the Polar Bear 5k and eventually a 10k.  I’m doing this to be healthy, not to lose weight (I don’t want to blow away!).

Sunday: Strength training (upper body)

Monday: 3.6 mile run.  It was 36-37 degrees outside and the song “Summertime’ by NKOTB came on my ipod.  How ironic :).  I wore a hoodie, under armor shirt, and track pants… plus of course my headband, thick socks, and gloves.  I was actually HOT in all that.

Tuesday: Strength training (lower body).  I did this on my lunch break, and I remembered that I had a meeting at 2, so I had to skip one set of leg presses, one set of back extensions, and two sets of glutes but I’ll make those up later this week.

Wednesday: 3 miles- one on the indoor track at the gym and two on the treadmill.  I also made up the weights that I didn’t get to do on Tuesday.  Sinus issues started- bleh.  Started taking nasal spray from the last time I was sick and went to the steam room to clear my head.

Thursday: Pilates + Cardio Fusion class.  My coworker & friend Christina wanted to do pilates, so I said I’d go with her to do it at the gym.  After that class, I saw my friend Bree and we did the Cardio Fusion class (which was really easy that night for some reason).

Friday: Off.  I did register for the 5k, though.  A lot of my coworkers are doing it, so it should be pretty fun.

Saturday: Ran 3.4 miles on the treadmill.  I’m not running outside until my sinus infection is fully cleared up (which probably won’t happen until it warms up, anyway).

    Hi Amy,

    Nice blog you have here. One of the automatic links on my blog suggested your page, so I thought I’d drop by and comment.

    I just decided to give blogging a try, and I’m currently writing about my physical and mental preparations for a possible career as an officer in the Army. I like your discipline!

    Good luck!
