Until then, enjoy this wrap up!
I think I mentioned in last week's post that I had a doctor's appointment on Monday, and then I had a bunch of errands to run, so I did not swim on Monday. Womp womp. Gotta get all of these appointments out of the way now while I have time!
Bike and lift. We did 15 minutes on the spin bike, and then the following lifts. I took a picture of our log but it's pretty difficult to read, so I typed it up for your viewing pleasure:
Only slightly disappointed about the second deadlift and bench sets...but it was a heavy set day so I'm not too broken up about it. It'd be nice if that bench had worked though :(
Rest day! (I also got my nails done :P)
Thursday, March 24th - 4 miles (treadmill), three lifts, abs
There's been this weird trend in the last few months (since he was promoted) where Cam ends up working really late on Thursdays. It happens occasionally on a different day, but he really does work a lot of late Thursdays...and that's what happened this week. Instead, I ran into these folks at the gym:

Runs for Cookies' update post about heart rate training I am confident I can get there!
After this run I decided to do some weights as well. I did:
- dumbbell bent over rows: 3x10 at 30lbs
- dumbbell bench press: 3x10 at 20lbs
- barbell squats: 5-5-10 at 105-105-85 lbs (I took it easy because of the running)
- ab stuff and stretching (because I'm trying to get better about incorporating both those things)
I ended up skipping hot yoga on Friday. Last week's class was such a struggle for me, and I was pretty freaking tired this week so I skipped yoga and hung out with Cam and Dan and played some Frisbee instead. Can't say I'm disappointed in the choice!
Saturday - cycle and lift
Cam and I hit the gym before I went home (to make cookies). We started with 20 minutes on the spin bike (while listening to some moe. so we wouldn't be bored out of our skulls) and then lifted.
I admit I wimped out on leg press. I hate it to begin with, and my legs were still tired from the speed work on Thursday. It's okay though...I also did squats on Thursday after the speed work. So yeah, not upset about leg press at all.
Sunday - 5 miles
I fail-whaled at getting up early to go for an Easter morning run, but realized if I did everything on my to-do list before breakfast, I could run after. And that's exactly what I did! I took Nigel out for my 5-miler, but my poor pooch clearly did not have 5 miles in mind. I dropped him off at home at 4.25, and completed the last three-quarters of a mile by myself.
I really nailed this "long" run from a HR training standpoint. I kept a 12:12 min/mile pace, and my average heart rate was right on target, at 147.

Annnnnd that's it for the week! See you next Monday with another update!
