Workout Log Challenge – Days 16-21

Work out log challenged is more like it!


A ‘la Oh She Glows


Date: 2011-11-14 (AKA, Day 16)

Type of workout/duration: Evening – Running, 30 minutes, Abdominals, 30 minutes.


Hours of sleep: 6 hours, which was a good long string of getting good sleep for me.


My mood before/during/after exercise: I wanted to exercise in the morning, but was feeling my normal laziness and indulging in it.  By the evening, it was still a pretty nice day and so needed to run (and The Husband thought it was nice biking weather), so out to the park we went and he biked and I ran.


Exercise struggles:  I petered out after 30 minutes and decided to walk back to the car.  Then, I came to find I was lost.  Then, The Husband biked by… so he biked and I wound up running again, which was great as I did get my second wind.


Exercise progress:  Feeling really great and positive with my runs, though I really do prefer the darkness of dawn to the darkness of dusk.


How I felt the rest of the day: Much better after the run, that’s for sure.


Other things to note: None.

Date: 2011-11-15,  2011-11-16  and 2011-11-17 (AKA, Days 17, 18, 19) … all three days exactly the same.

Type of workout/duration: Unintentional Day of Rest


Hours of sleep: 3.  4.  Who knows.


My mood before/during/after exercise: N/A




Exercise struggles:  This was tough to come to terms with.  I really wanted to get something done every every day and not take a day of rest (I figured variety would take care of whatever muscles needed to rest).  The day, however, had other plans for me and there was no space for exercise.  At least, I didn’t make a space.  I did a plank for my plank-a-day challenge (I like to keep motivated, okay?), but that was it.


Exercise progress:  I really had to come to peace with it.  A) Bodies do need rest.  B)  Freak out less.


How I felt the rest of the day: By the end of the day, I figured it was what it was and I’d be better the next day.


Other things to note: Seriously, freak out less.  Don’t let day of rest turn into week of rest or two months of rest… you’ll be fine!

Date: 2011-11-19 (AKA, Day 21)

Type of workout/duration: Afternoon – Abs, 15 minutes, Running 35 minutes.


Hours of sleep: 6 hours uninterrupted… then another 2 because it was Saturday.


My mood before/during/after exercise: After yesterday’s full day of finding zen about missing a day, I realized it was exactly what I needed.  I need to have a DoR every week, I think, or I’ll make myself batty.  I think Friday may be the day, we’ll see.  In any case, felt great going in and coming out the other end.


Exercise struggles:  Just to get The Husband to load his bike into the car so we could go someplace nice to run, since it was such a pretty day.  Was well worth the struggle.


Exercise progress:  Felt like a pretty strong run, though my GPS tracker crapped out on me so I have no knowledge of my pace.  If I am going to do this right, I need to get some actual good equipment for this…


How I felt the rest of the day: Great!  I’ve been pretty lazy otherwise and relishing in it (I’m on call after all, can’t be gallivanting about and what not).  Took a cat nap.  Lots of sleep to catch up on!


Other things to note: More exercising activities tomorrow, yes!
