Fun Facts Friday - More Randomness

Tried and True
Well today was chest and then a run at lunch. Since I didn't have a spotter handy, I went with my tried and true (and DOMS inducing) superset of flyes into presses with pushups.

Wide-arm pushups - 24

Flat bench flyes into bench press - 3x8

Pushups with toes on bench - 2x8

Incline flyes into presses - 3x8

Pushups: 4 3:1 count, 4 1:3 count, 4 2:2 count

This seriously always gives me some major DOMS. It seems like it shouldn't somehow; I never feel completely shaky right after, but the next day...wow.

Terrific Run
It was another warm, sunny day here. But a cold (cooler) front is due to move through tonight and into tomorrow morning - bringing rain. I think it's supposed to move through quickly (it better because I'm planning to run tomorrow).

Jason promised me yesterday that he would run with me today at lunch, so I held him to it. I really and truly wanted just an easy run today. My last 2 runs were on the faster, tougher side. I need to make sure to balance those out. Oh, and my legs are still a bit sore from Wednesday's workout. 

It was a terrific run for me today. I felt like I could have just run all day. It was a bit warm, but the breeze was nice and the company even better. It's just gorgeous out. Not much beats time spent outside on a gorgeous day with the hubby. We got in 4.25 miles then had to call it quits (aka get our butts back to work). I sure hope tomorrow's longer run goes as smoothly.

Fun Facts Friday - More Randomness
I really couldn't come up with a theme for Fun Facts Friday. I just kept thinking of random things/facts here and there. So why not just go with that? That's how most of us think anyway...please tell me you do too. So here are some random facts and how one thought can lead to another:
  • No Pizza Friday today, but hope to get my pizza fix on Sunday.
  • Meeting 2 girlfriends for happy hour  - yay for girl time.
  • My sister is coming to stay with me tomorrow - yay for more girl time!
  • Being proud of my sister after receiving a text that she ran 3.4 miles today.
  • I sometimes get really nervous before I go for a run (not talking races, just out for a run).
  • I woke up around 2 am and was thinking about what I wanted to wear when I ran today and tomorrow.
  • I started obsessing around 2:30 am about which re-fueling option to take with me on my longer run tomorrow. I'll be solo so no spare set of hands or pockets.
  • I actually apologized to the cashier at the LImited for being on the phone with 1-800Contacts while trying to check out. They called right as I got to the register.
  • I think talking on the cell at the register is rude.
  • I think texting while visiting with your friends is rude (probably an age thing for me).
  • My birthday is coming up (speaking of age) and I need to learn to not get down about it. Find the positives right?
  • I think I think too much.

Ok, how does your mind work?

Hump Day and More Pineapples

Full-Body Workout  I'll readily admit that getting up this morning was quite painful and almost didn't happen. I forced myself out of bed though not exactly excited about tackling a full-body Pyramid workout. Sort of daunting at 5 am really. I did the warm up from Shock Cardio Cardio Core Circuit (cardio only premix) then hit the weights. It was a pyramid up only so I increased my starting weight. I topped it all off with the first 2 1/2 drills from the cardio workout. I ran short on time and was basically spent. Squats into Plie Squats Step Ups (seriously hate these especially at 5:30 am) Incline Chest Flyes into Chest Press Pullovers into DB Underhand Rows Step Ups (freaking again) Static Lunges Overhead DB Press into Lateral Raises Deadlifts Kickbacks into Overhead Extensions Hammer Curls into Alternating Curls Calf Raises I am so excited to report that my new cross-trainers and running shoes arrived today. Can't wait to test both of them out. I waited way way way too

Hitting the Gym and Lazy Means Creative Tex-Mex Creation

Sunday, Gym Day Why do vacations and min-vacations go by so quickly? Just doesn't seem quite right. Anyway, we left Branson around 9:30 am to head back home. It was a pretty uneventful drive back, which is usually a good thing. We got home and unpacked, then I headed up to the gym. I started with a 10-minute treadmill run to warm up before hitting the weights for back and light legs then abs. I went with a giant set for back then supersets for legs. GS - 4x8 Underhand barbell rows Pullovers Double-arm rows SS#1 Rear-leg elevated lunges (Bulgarian Split Squats) - 3x8 Calf raises - 3x20 SS#2 - 2x8 Walking lunges Plie squats with low-end pulse Single-leg deadlifts - 2x8 I did some ab exercises, stretched, and called it quits. Lazy = Crazy Dinner I may have made it to the gym and washed a few loads of laundry, but I never made it to the grocery store - lounging in the pool trumped grocery shopping. This meant getting creative with dinner. We had another package
