This Week In Working Out

It’s getting to be that time of the year when the real training begins. I need to start getting used to being on a schedule. Here is my first attempt in a while to plan out my workouts.

Monday -

Rest day

I have a meeting after work where the local Democratic candidates for the U.S. House Of Representatives are speaking. The speakers will be Alan Grayson, Val Demings, and Will Bronson. I am lucky to have heard both Val Demings and Alan Grayson speak before and know it will be a great meeting. I usually don’t get home until 9 from these meetings and there is no time to workout. It works out because I probably do not take as many rest days as I should.

I am really gaining a lot of strength following this program but about a month I am starting to get ready to move onto Stage Two. Each workout has five exercises which is great for simplicity but it gets stale pretty quickly.

After Work - Run

No particular distance. I am running by feel until I start the base building part of half training at the end of August.

Wednesday -

After Work – Run

Probably anywhere from three to six miles depending on how I feel.

Thursday –

Morning – The New Rules Of Lifting For Women Stage One Workout A Number Six

After Work – Run

Easy run while watching terrible TV on Netflix.

Friday -


Saturday -

My last 5K in the Lakeland Runners Club Watermelon 5K series. In case you missed the other three races you can find them race one, race two, and race three.  Maybe this will be the one where I finally run a sub-30 5K? (Please cross your fingers for me.)
