Half of my office has been gone for about an hour now so I’m just at my desk hard at work…
Designing a “Runner’s Strength Workout” for myself!
If everybody is off attending to personal matters I’m doing the same!
I don’t know if it was all the time off, the (slightly)upset stomach, or if I’m getting closer and closer to plateauing but today’s workout sucked!
Been a few months since I really felt a workout during AND afterwards. The legs feel a little like jelly so I’m consuming all the protein I can get my hands on at the moment.
I was hoping to stave off the plateau in my strength training until the beginning of October to coincide with the start of marathon training but it’s getting tough. I’ll play it day to day and push as hard as I can.
I’m still mad at myself for over imbibing Sunday and missing my Monday morning run. I need to find a way to make up for it the next few days since I’m already behind in my miles.
Training is truly a hard thing that’s not for everyone, present company included. I really admire and respect people who have the dedication and motivation to train day in and day out. If you’re one of those people, my hat’s off to you!
No…I didn’t stick to the program today but the tension in my muscles tells me I still got a good workout.
I went through similar compound movements and did about the same load but time, availability, and other factors just wouldn’t let me stick to the plan.
I’m not even worried. I kicked some ass and a mini-vaca is in my near future!

I gotta get myself back into running shape before marathon training starts.
In the short term I want to be able to do my pre-training runs non-stop.That shouldn’t be hard considering they’re short runs but my lungs are just being passive-aggressive bitches right now.
With that said, I need to make sure I lace up the Asics after work and put a few miles on them. That definitely interferes with my drinking schedule but sacrifices must be made right?
Learn this great leg exercise called Duck Walks. It increases leg strength very quickly when performed regularly.
Just found out these exist. I want to incorporate them into my run training but I’m a little worried about how it’ll wear on the knees.
Has anybody used them? Benefits? Downside?

I know it’s kind of ironic but I HATE hills! I’m actually looking forward to trying out these tips on my next hill run though.
Completed my first run with my MotoACTV. I’m pretty happy with this little gadget.
The run was tougher than it should have been. Too much time off and still a little chest congestion. I gotta kick some ass on Friday. Starting with my own.
