I tried to jog over the weekend, but it didn't go well. I think I did 1.5 miles in 25 minutes or something close to that. My shins were hurting 0.25 miles into the workout and I just didn't have to motivation to finish. This schedule puts me nowhere close to a 40 min 5k. My 1st 5k is this weekend, by the way. I'm nervous, but I'm going to do it anyway. I know I have not trained like I should have. Oh, Sam has to go out of town and had to drop out of the 5k, so no 5k pic with Sam a the end. I'm still planning to have my parents take a pic as I cross the finish though.
On last Friday (I think) I had a perfect food day. I ate clean all day. The difference is really amazing! First, I was shocked at the amount of food I could eat with so few calories. I was literally stuffed and had only eaten fewer than 300 calories. I had grilled chicken, a ton of broccoli, and a sweet potato for that meal. I'm not exaggerating, I was really shocked. Second, I felt so much better. Although I was super full I never felt bloated or anything. I didn't feel sick and I had a lot more energy. I was happier. Eating better is a mood booster. I was on a high that day. I tried to continue the next day, but I ate out and blew it.
Tuesday was a training day. Oh, I did real push ups for the first time today!!!!! GO me! I was shocked by how many I could do. I even got a compliment from another trainer who was impressed with my form. It felt great! I'm going to list what I did, but I did three rounds of everything.
Step Ups (1 min on each leg)
Lat Pulldowns (20)
Chest Fly (20)
Leg Lifts (20)
Push Ups (12) non-modified YAY me!
Split Lunge Jumps (10)
Walking Lunges (15)
Jog 1 min, walk 30 sec (5 rounds)
Squat Jumps (12)
This isn't the order I did these in, but I think I remembered everything. I did 3 rounds of everything except the jogging. This was actually a pretty decent workout for me. It worked me, but I felt fine once I left. I was never out of breath or anything.
Today's song isn't just a song. I'm not sure if I've talked about it, but I absolutely love Zumba. So, this is a video of one of the routines we do in class and it's also included on the Wii game. This is actually a screen shot from the game and it's one of my favorites. It's easy to catch on!
