New Routine

I finally did some cardio for the first time since the race. I've been so lazy. I meant to run while I was at the bungalow, but I had two weekends up there and I didn't run once. My laziness definitely showed in my performance today. I used level 10 on the treadmill, but it took me 25:13 minutes to run 3.64 km. I only averaged 5.38 mph (11:08/mile). I did climb 461 ft.

I also changed my workout routine. My joints keep aching after lifting so much and I think my body is just not meant for it. So in order to give myself some more time to recover and get in some more cardio, my routine is:
• chest, triceps, shoulders (front and lateral)
• cardio and legs (pushing)
• back, biceps, shoulders (rear and traps)
• cardio and legs (pulling)

We'll see how it works out.

  5. I've been doing cardio on this new hybrid machine at the Y, so I haven't been tracking my results, but today I used the treadmill. I was going to do some interval training, but it turned into mostly climbing, because I'm so lazy.
