Rest day today and lord did I sleep lol!! I actually feel like I could still sleep but that would be due to the gloomy rainy snowy weather weather that is predicted for the night. My 5k Saturday looks to be just as miserable as the last one.... Might have to pull out the wool socks for this.... Also working on upping my water intake again.

Feeling like a rock star today!!! Won't bore anyone or myself with the details of my workout but hit a few personal bests today!!!! Benched 155 lbs for 2 reps unassisted but trainer was there to help if needed and shoulder pressed 40 lb dumbbells for 8 reps! Guess after all the well deserved sleep I caught up on this weekend my body was ready to perform! Think this week instead of mock tuna I am gonna do raw sunflower seed butter. I added Himalayan sea salt and agave and coconut oil to it. Did a rough calculation of my calories last night and realized I am on the low side so doing what I can to add some calories. I grabbed corn tortillas, veggie breakfast patties, salt and vinegar kettle chips just to add in a few extra calories :)

Running seemed easier today for some reason. Core training on the other hand... sucked!! I did realize if I am going to run after a heavy chest day I NEED A MORE SUPPORTIVE SPORTS BRA!!!! OMG that hurt but kinda drove me harder lol

I lol'd about your little bra story above, but seriously great work with the 155 x 2 bench. Strong as hell!

Lol that is one of the few things I hate about being a chick.... Bouncing of the boobs when running. Yeah totally feeling the lift right now but loving it at the same time

I'm impressed that you can maintain your strength whilst running ~ I can't manage to do both at the same time as running and weights negatively impact one another for me. Bummer as I love doing both!

I actually think I am pushing myself to hard on the running but since someone talked me into a half marathon well I gotta get used to running.... I would be happy just lifting weights and skipping cardio

Tomorrow is the dreaded 5k... I say dreaded because it will be by far the yuckiest one I will be running... predicted temp will be 34 with wind chill of 27, chances of black ice or patches of ice, 9 mph winds and high humidity as we are expecting rain and snow at some point in the day..... I have plans to wear as many layers as possible to stay warm including carrying a blanket in case it is just to cold.

Well my run was miserably cold and it took me almost 40 min to run it.... Not happy about it but hey what can ya do when you are shivering, pain in feet from the cold and completely exhausted from work??? Signed up for a fun run that won't involve any timing or rush to run. Will be pelted with paint powder as we run by to come out at the end looking like a bag of skittles hahahaha! Eating raw still going good just trying to keep it simple instead of making complex meals.

So woke up and was in pain. Ate an apple, orange and some grapes, strapped on the new running shoes and hit the road since it was by far a beautiful day to pass up a run. Was on the road for an hour doing walk/run to help build up and only managed a 6k hahahaha. Needless to say more walking than running but oh well. New shoes trying to break them in and my back was hurting which btw no longer hurts!!! Now I am drinking a green smoothie :) I am loving life
