workout 11/17

Tuesday, November 17, 2009

So I am offically registered for the 5k!! Today I went to the gym for a tredmill run. I've been using C25K a little untraditionally you might say, Week 1 is perfect for interval training so I have been using that to work on my speed. I'm noticing my recovery times are decreasing. I'm still not 100% sure I will be able to run the whole thing, but I'm going to try my best!

After my run, I did an upper body workout.

Chest press 10#(2 sets)
Chest flys w/machine 60# (2 sets)
Chest Press w/machine 25# (3 sets)
Pull downs 55# (1 set) 40 # (1 set)
Assisted pull-ups 1 set of 8 reps

    Just to let you know... and I have no idea if this is something you may want to do but I learned this and wanted to share since we have some common goals of running and weight lifting.

    There is a big difference in what you do first, what I mean by that. If you are used to running and then lifting weights try this... Lift your weights first, you will be stronger and happier with you progress and then try to do the same running routine you normally do. You will be shocked! Your running is not as easy as it used to be.

    The difference: If you run last you will burn more fat than if you run first!

    It is pretty cool the difference that this switching of routines does to you. As simple as it sounds it is amazing the difference you will definitely notice.

    Like I said, I don't know if you are interested in doing this but at least try it once and see the difference.
