Dirty Little Secret

Posted on

It’s official, I hate running indoors.  I don’t like the treadmill and I don’t like the track, but I still completed another three miles of half marathon training and did arm weights afterwards.

For morning fuel, I had a quarter of a HUGE Fugi apple (what are they putting in those things these days?!) and some peanut butter…Krema peanut butter to be exact.  I love this peanut butter not only for it’s taste, but because the only ingredient is peanuts!  Now that’s how peanut butter should be!

I forgot to take my own food pictures today 😦

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

For the first 2 miles, I ran something kind of like this on the treadmill:

Minutes Speed Incline
0-5 4 7.5
5-6 6 1
6-9 7 1
9-13 6 1
13-20 6.5 1

After that, I went and ran one mile on the track upstairs.  Then, I completed this arm workout:

  • Flies (lying on back) 7.5 lbs 20 reps
  • Tricep Pullovers (lying on back) 7.5 lbs 20 reps
  • Chest Press (lying on back) 7.5 lbs 15 reps
  • Tricep Kickbacks, one arm at a time 7.5 lbs 15 reps
  • Upward Rows 5 lbs 15 reps
  • Don’t know the name of this one:  Put arms at 90 degrees with elbows in line with shoulders and close arms in front of your face and open 5 lbs 15 reps
  • Overhead press 5 lbs 15 reps
I then stretched, and headed down to the locker room to get ready.  Here is my dirty little secret
I am really good at making myself look like a didn’t workout without having to shower and taking up minimal time (This morning…15 min!!)
Before…sweaty mess
After…Is that the same girl?
I know to some people it might sound a little gross, not showering after a sweaty workout, but when you don’t have time to shower here are some tips:
  • Blow dry your sweaty hair on cool, if you do it on hot you will just sweat more
  • Bring a curling iron to lightly curl hair and get kinks out from your pony holder
  • Freshen up on deoderant
  • Spritz body spray
  • Put on some makeup
  • Pack an outfit that is simple, cute, and comfy…like a dress.  I love dresses because I can just throw it on and the outfit is on!
You may also try a “dry” shampoo.  I don’t have any experience with that, but if I give it a try I will let you know!
After my workout, I had a Fiber 1 bar…these things are seriously like candy too me, don’t want to eat too many though…
I also wore my new shoes for the first time today.  I have to say, they felt great!!  🙂  Gotta love good fitting shoes.
The kids want to go out to lunch today…hope it’s tasty!
