Training Tuesday

This link-up is just a way to talk about training [in any way, for anything] to help hold ourselves accountable and possibly brag a bit. I mean, you ran 1 mile without stopping – you totally deserve a chance to brag about it! That shit is hard. You did 10 push-ups in a row, HOLLLEERRR.

And even if you’re not training for anything, you’re just putting yourself out there to be healthier, to get slimmer, to whatever you can share it on Training Tuesday. Let’s say you were sitting at home and instead of eating a carton of Oreos you instead ate 20 baby carrots and just imagined they were chocolate-y y crèmey goodness [hypothetical situation, of course] – share it here!

Abbey & I don’t discriminate – we congratulate.

Grab the button up above & link-up down below to let us know what’s going on for you Training Tuesday!

My Training

2/19 – 3 mile run on the dread-mill.
2/20 – I participated again in WHY GOD WHY Wednesday with Moj. We did stairs. Which is normally us just walking up & down four flights of stairs for like 45 minutes at our own pace. But this day, Moj got even more evil. She told me I was to keep up with her. This meant, for 45 minutes I ran up the stairs, jumped up the stairs, went sideways up the stairs, tried to die falling down the stairs – whatever she wanted. It was so.fricking.hard. I smile so I don’t cry. IMG_0638 2/21 – Rest day. After looking over my Bearathon training plan for the past 4 weeks, I noticed I have not worked out on one single Thursday. I’m pretty sure it has something to do with Wednesdays.

2/22 – Planned on running 3 to 4 miles but I’m a glutton for punishment and Moj convinced me I needed to workout with her & a couple other girls from the department. I compromised by running 2 miles and then meeting them in the weight area. We then did Tabata workouts similar to last week. I’m pretty sure I smelled like pit-sweat for the rest of the day despite dousing myself in deodorant & febreeze.

2/23 – Rest day. Totally had to recover from the end of the week workouts I accomplished. And fine, I also had an accidental hangover from Friday night. Do you ever have those nights where you think you’re only going to drink one, maybe two, and then next thing you know you’re wearing hunting gloves & chasing Smokey Asses down? I’m not the only one this happens to right? Right? Accidental Hangover2/24 – I had every intention of running something but then I got distracted by uh, not running. The house got cleaned, I finished a book, I washed my truck [and yes, it did rain] and I enjoyed a pretty chill day. It was a productive day for everything else other than my glutes.

2/25 – And now, I’m just lazy. Nada. Zip. Nothing. Hopefully this week I’ll be a little more motivated with getting my miles in.

In other related news, I only have 18 days until my next half. You guys, I really like running, I do. But I would be lying if I didn’t say I was excited for this one to be over with – because I don’t have any other half’s on my schedule. I’m planning to focus on 5ks & 10ks for the rest of the year & can’t wait to work on my speed instead of distance. 

Ok, I’m on stand-by with my slow clap just waiting for you to link up below & tell me what your training/life is looking like these days!

Dang gurlfran! You look good after that workout. You look so damn skinny!
Whutup. Can I getcho numba?

Abbey said...

Ummm Kate can get in line. YOU LOOK SO GOOD.

I was just telling my roommate last night that I don't think stairs are the exercise for me. I have too much history with stairs and with falling both down and up stairs. So I am very impressed.

Also one of my coworkers has been trying to get the class she teaches to slow clap... And her slow clap is hilarious. It looks like an old lady robot. So awesome.
