Day 807 - Weights workout and Elliptical

I started out my day with a workout at 5:30 AM before work in the gym.  I did some Cybex machines and then did 30 minutes on the elliptical and burned about 300 calories.  It worked up a good sweat.

Day 806 - 5K Treadmill Run

I had a week where I was sick and then I was off to Myrtle Beach for a golf vacation last week. I'm finally back to working out and started off again with a treadmill run at the gym after work.

Day 805 - 5K Treadmill Run

I joined the gym here at work and tried it for the first time today before work.  It was nice because I was the only one there at 6:30 in the morning.  It was the first time I tried running on a treadmill and I found it to be much easier than running on a path or a road.  I'm not sure that's necessarily a good thing, but it's a nice alternative as the weather starts to get colder outside.  I did 5K pretty easily on the treadmill in just over 35 minutes.  I think going forward I should be able to up my pace and distance on the treadmill since it's easier than running outside.  I burned almost 400 calories, so I like that.

Day 804 - 5K Run

After work I went for a run in the park.  It was certainly harder than it used to be when I was doing this more often, but I got through it okay.

Day 803 - 5K Trail Run

It was a rainy morning when I woke up, so I had to wait for a break in the weather in order to go out for the run.  The rail was pretty sloppy, but that didn't phase me too much.  I found it harder to finish the run today since it's only been two days since I last ran. I stopped to walk for a bit a couple of times, but kept the breaks brief.  Humidity was way up, so by the time I was done I was sweating quite a lot.  I feel good about getting in two runs this week.

Day 802 - 5K Trail Run

I had the day off today, so I went for a run this morning.  The temperatures are starting to cool off a bit, so it was nice to get out in the morning and feel a bit of a chill in the air.  I can tell it's been a while since I've done Ab Ripper because my Abs are feeling it after doing the workout on Tuesday.  But, but legs recovered fine now from the run on Saturday.  Hopefully 2 days will be enough time to recover to allow me to run again on Saturday (weather permitting).
