    Started with 15 min on my trainer to burn a couple calories & try to loosen up my very sore legs. I'd guess I went 4 miles based on effort. My garmin kept losing contact with the sensor so... read more

    This was supposed to be 6 miles with 4 at tempo. I don't even know what "tempo" is anymore and obviously this wasn't 6 miles. I gave myself a big, fat DNF. I hated every second ... read more

    good Strength 00:30

    2 rounds of an old workout circuit by Tough Mudder. Felt really weak and it kicked my butt which probably means I should keep doing it.

      Hills are so freaking tough, but you pushed through. I hate closed for the season bathrooms. I had to find a portapotty on my run last week, because I didn't think I would get back up from a squat!!

      great job!! I need to log mine. I slacked a couple of days last week and struggled the next time I did them with a brief pause at 25. I am doubling up now morning and night because I love what they are doing for me. Also added pull-ups and chin-ups yesterday hitting a whopping ONE each :) dropped the burpees for now due to knee pain.

      I'm skipping the v-ups and burpees for now. I found the old Tough Mudder workout I did for my last mud run. Once I'm able to stand upright again without hurting, I'm going to start hitting that. I was in the best upper body shape ever back then because that's all I could do with my stress fx.

  14. Instead of working out today, I went jeans shopping. With the amount of sweating, jumping, shimmying & swearing involved, I'm convinced it should be its own Daily Mile category.
