Work out #8 and 9

Monday [m] and I ran for 30 minutes on the treadmill and then came outside and threw and hit.

Tuesday [m] and I ran the mile for a time. 10:16! That's 1 minute 26 seconds faster than the first time. So we're gonna keep working out so we can be even better. After that we did 30 crunches and single leg squats (2 sets of 10 each leg).

Work out #8

Yesterday [m] and I got up early to work out. We did our warm up poles, then we did sort of a circuit training thing. Box drill sprints, 30 crunches, 30 lunges (15 each leg), 25 squat jumps. We also sprinted up the foot bridge, which was tough. It was pretty tiring, but I guess we didn't do that much. Oh well. We tried to go out today, but it was really hot and humid, so we decided to take today off for a break. Tomorrow we will do more than planned.

Work out #7

This morning I went with [m] to go run on the field. We did 3 poles and then rested and then 2, which is basically what we do for regular warm up. Then we ran the bases. It was tough at first, but I got into it. Then we timed ourselves going to first, but we only did it once, 3.69 I think it was. Close to it. That's not a good time, but it's not really bad either. So we're just going to keep on running and stuff before Coach can get a hold of us.

Work out #6

So today I ran a mile with my team mate. 11:42. Which is what I wanted, less than 12. I need to get it better though. And I will. I still have 12 days to get it better. Tomorrow morning she and I are supposed to do some poles and some sprints/baserunning. So I need to push myself harder on the mile. I always just run it the same I think. Or close to it. I'm going to get better. I will.

Work out #5

Today I ran with a couple of my team mates. We ran for 20 minutes. It was really hard though. Running outside in this humidity is a lot harder than back home. I started a food journal though. I'm worried about my coach and if she's going to be all crazy because I'm not in shape. Oh boy. This is going to be fun.

Well...

I've taken three days off, which could be good and bad. Good because my muscles can rest, but bad because I'm not exercising. So on Sunday I heard on KFI this woman. She's on the Biggest Loser, anyway she suggested on her show to have a food journal, to write down what you eat, at what time, and why you're eating so that can help you monitor your behavior. She also has her own website where you can get your own weight loss program. Well let's see if that helps any.

Cheers.

Work out #4

Cardio: 20 minutes
Abs: 3 sets of 20 right, left, center crunches, and scissors

So I was disappointed because I again did not add five minutes. My thighs feel better but my calves are still tight. I feel like I'm running faster though. I guess today was a lazy day. I forced myself to go out there, but I couldn't push myself.

Work out #3

So I didn't meet my goal today by running 25 minutes. I only ran 20, but I ran a bit farther. Then I did 3 sets of 20 left, right, center crunches and 3 sets of 10 pullins.

Work Out #2

Today I ran for 20 minutes (although I did walk some uphill battles). I also did 2 sets of 30 left, right, center crunches; 20 leg pull ins; 10 open leg squats.

My legs were/are pretty tight. I have to get used to this again or else softball is going to be a bitch! But I think I'll be allright by the time the season starts. My muscles are small though. Daaamn. I want a bowflex. I should put that on my birthday list. Bowflex so I can get muscly. And then Coach will be happy.

Workout #1

Today I ran for 15 minutes. I also did some crubches -- 3 sets of 20 left, right, center, 20 knee pull -ins, 10 lunges (5 each), 10 open leg squats.

Well, that's not as good as I want, but I'll run even more tomororw. I got a bad calf cramp, but that's because I haven't worked out all summer. I'm going to die once softball starts again...er I'm such an idiot! It's because of my procrastination implant.

Edit: My goal is to add five minutes every day until I'm running about 45-60 minutes each day.
