Morning Run & Lunchtime Fun

Run: 3 Miles
Time: 27:48
Pace: 9:16

Decided to do last nights run this morning. Man, I really enjoyed getting up and out for an early morning run. It was hard to get up but once I got out the door and started the run it was great. Got over to the gym for a much needed strength workout at lunch.

Hammer Curls: 4x10
Regular Curls: 4x10
Flat Flyes: 4x10
Bench Press: 4x8
Weighted Crunches: 4x15
Decline Press: 3x6
Incline Press: 3x8
Standing Calf Raises: 3x10
Lat Pulldown: 3x10
Seated Leg Press: 3x10
Isolated Bicep Curl: 3x10

It felt great slamming around some weight and the shoulder seems to be holding up very well. Still going lighter with the weights then normal but hope to be back pushing heavier weight over the next few weeks. Ran into Scott while working out and had a good conversation and complained to him because he's been slack updating his blog. Where's the update Scott!:) The mileage starting next week is really going to start to increase from here to week 15 and I'm looking forward to it. Should be fun and of course challenging.

My nutrition took a back seat tonight! I decided to cut loose again and I feel like I did a much better's the rundown. Picked up Ashli and Gracie and headed over to Red Robin's burger joint for dinner. I had a Chili Chili Cheeseburger, fries, and a couple of slices of Ashli's quesadillas. Wait it gets better...after that we headed over to Marble Slab for some ice cream. I had the big cup of double chocolate ice cream with almonds mixed in...very large cup! Needless to say I was stuffed and still feeling very bloated but boy was it yummy! Cheat meals out of the system and from here until November 10th it will be clean eating, no cheat meals.

This weekend will be filled with more yard work, running, cycling, and strength. Its been about a month since I was on my bike and I miss it. Not planning any 20 mile ride but will be happy with a good 10 miler. I can't wait until Jan/Feb time frame. My gym is opening a new location about 3 miles from my house which will have a pool...I'm looking forward to adding swimming to my daily workouts and possibly doing some sprint tri's next year, will see. Right now I just need to focus on running and my strength training to get past the big bad 26.2!

I hope everyone has a great weekend and have fun on those workouts! - Jason

if you're gonna have a cheat meal you may as well top it off with ice cream!! :p -- Hope the transition to healthy is a smooth one.

And WOW you did so great on my quiz! Did you purposely miss one so you wouldn't be tempted to eat the m&m's i would of sent you? hehe.

OMG I love Red Robin. The last time I went was when I was pg with my second. Good thing I haven't been back since, it would all be downhill from there LOL

Wes said...

Nah man, you know what's really cool? The cheat meals stuff the crap out of you when before you would've been going back for seconds :-) Not that that's a long term thing, mind you, but short term, it helps to get you back on track! Killer run :-)

Solid as always. Even that meal was solid. :)

Mary Gee said...

No more cheat meals until November 10? Wow.

Randy said...

I agree with Neese, what a way to top off a cheat meal....and Red Robin is a great place, we always always ask for fries as an appetizer right up front since they provide an endless supply of them....we don't go there too often any more though....too serious on the marathon training now....September will be here before I realize it.
