Kela's Training Log

I've been running intervals on the treadmill at the gym up to 3 miles. Yesterday I ran 4 miles and today 4.5 miles interspersed with a lot of leg presses, push ups, step ups and abs. I also did some other weight lifting with my legs. This is SO much harder to do than running 4 miles in a row.

I've been running pretty regularly for that past 2 or 3 weeks. Hoorah! Lovin' it.

Did a 7 mile hike 2 weekends ago and a 3 mile jogging/walking hike last weekend.

I'll be hitting a trail this weekend too.

I'm pretty much working out at the gym 4 to 5 days a week. Almost always doing intense cardio, ab work,  and alternating every other day between weight lifting with my lower and upper body.

I take whichever day on the weekend that I'm not hiking off completely to let my body rest.

I am having a BLAST pushing myself more and more!


Oh, and I forgot to add the PAINFUL part of my training regimen. One super cold bath per week to acclimate myself to the ridiculously cold water I will be immersed in come July! NOT FUN AT ALL, but NECESSARY!

I tried to make it to the gym in time to this Body Pump class with weights, etc, but I missed it. It looks AWESOME! I intend to do it on Tuesday. So, instead I ran 5 interval miles, did my upper body weight lifting (I only use free weights.), abs, push ups and step ups. I did this workout with a little less intensity. I'll bring the intensity back up tomorrow. I have to say that I hit a mental wall with the running this morning, but I got through it. It's time to mix up the cardio.

I'm behind on updating this because of a death in the family, but here it is.

My beloved and I did a 3.5 hour hike through Fryman and Franklin Canyon on Satturday the 21st, then we went dancing for 3 hours later that evening. That was a full on work out! Woohoo!

Sunday was my day of rest, then Monday I headed back to the gym for a 2.5 mile interval run, interspersed with pushups, leg ups and my regular leg weight exercises. I did 30, then 25, then 20 pushups. YAY!

I took Tuesday and Wednesday off and then on Thursday I did a 3.5 mile nature jog. I came home and did 35, then 25, then 15 pushups.

I'm up to 6 pull ups now. YAY!

I am going to try to work out today, but I need to see how I feel.

Hey, Bada asses! I've been lagging on my updates, but not on my training. I've been running pretty regular 3.5 to 5 mile interval runs at the gym, doing push ups, pull ups, squats, crunches and weights. I also started doing a class at Gold's gym called Body Pump. Almost a full hour of non stop weight lifting. YEAH! Feels good. Weekend hikes are still in full effect, but I haven't taken a cold bath in a couple of weeks. I hope to get the nerve up to resume that aspect of my training next weekend! Woohoo! Stay strong, Tough Mudders! Let's ROCK this sucker!

Okay, so I haven't hiked in 2 weeks. :-( However, I have been regularly hitting the gym and running 5 interval miles on the rolling hills program. It's getting a bit easier and I'm upping my speed and resistance levels. I'm doing regular leg weights and upper body weights training. I switch off every other day with them. I'm getting in about 4-5 days a week of training. It will go back to 5 or 6 with my hike this weekend. YAY! Oh, I can do 30 push ups in a row now and I can do 8 pull ups. Onward and upward!
