It’s barely 10am and I’m already having a frustrating morning! Do you ever feel like you’re drowning? Like you’re just barely scraping by? That’s how I’m feeling this week. Every time I cross something off my To Do List, 3 more things get added in it’s place! I feel like there are just not enough hours in the day! I managed to do my laundry, but then realized my apartment is a huge mess. I get all my reading done for one class, and then get an e-mail from another professor asking us to read 40 pages for the next day!
Which is why I cannot wait for this weekend! I’m making a giant To-Do List and actually getting it ALL DONE. Cleaning, errands, school work, blogging, working out, and FUN! Gotta schedule in some relaxing time to keep my sanity! Perhaps a little time with Molly will help!
This morning I had half a banana and some coffee, and then headed off to the gym! I hadn’t been there in ages since I’ve been out of town so much! I started with 10 min on the elliptical and then did some interval running:
0-1 min at 6.0
1-2 min at 6.5
2-3 min at 9.0
3-4 min at 7.0
4-5 min at 9.0
5-6 min at 7.0
6-7 min at 9.0
then from 7 – 21 min I switched back and forth between 9.5 and 7.0 for one minute each
then I ran at 7.0 until I hit 3 miles at 23.46 and then I walked until 25 min.
After running, I hit the weights:
3 sets of each, switching between arms and legs
15 reps of bicep curls (30lb barbell)
12 reps of shoulder lifts (30lb barbell)
15 reps chin lifts (30lb barbell)
15 reps of angled-up leg extensions (160lbs) don’t know how to explain this machine… haha
Then I did 3 sets of these, switching back and forth between them:
15 reps of tricep pull downs (10lbs)
15 reps of calf lifts (115lbs)
After that I hit the elliptical for 5 min to loosen up my legs and then I stretched and rolled out!
When I got home I was crazy hungry, so I made myself an egg sandwich and a smoothie!
