Workout and Diet


Day 16 of my 90-day challenge.

Today’s Workout

  • Morning Workout:
  • 1 mile
  • Evening Workout: Sprints
  • 2 miles warm-up
  • 2 miles cool-down
  • 3 800s (2:30 goal pace; +25, +35, +38) HOT today! Still beat last week though!!
  • 400 cool-down jogging between each 800; 800 total
  • 4 sets of 15: Push ups, cross-over mountain climbers, outside-arms mountain climbers. Switched to 1 rep = 1 push-up, 1 cross-over MC, 1 outside MC; it was MUCH harder!! Did 4 sets. Feeling it!!
  • Total Mileage: 7 Miles
  • Weekly Total: 7 Miles

  • 1 tablespoon Coconut butter mixed with 100% Cocoa Powder
  • 1 tablespoon Raw Apple Cider Vinegar
  • Lunch: Salad
  • Mixed Salad Greens, Apple, Cucumber, Zucchini, Rosemary Ham, Avocado
  • Afternoon Snack:

  • 1 tablespoon Raw Apple Cider Vinegar
  • Dinner:
  • Slow-Cooked Apple Steak

  • Veggies: Sweet potato, Zucchini, Mushrooms

It was a rough workout, and I was SERIOUSLY feeling it! Despite the heat, and the difficulty of the workout, I think I may have had another 800 in me. This is exciting, because it’s the first time I’ve finished the planned workout with a little in the tank. Not much, of course, but a little. Before increasing the workout, though, I am going to focus more on form and output, and see if I can translate some of that reserve gas in to performance; see if I can get my times down a bit!

As my Kung Fu instructor loves to shout: “MORE CHI!” to which the class replies: “TRAIN HARDER!”. So, I want more chi. I am going to train harder!
