I am going to skip right along to the highlight of my week fitness-wise… I ran OUTSIDE yesterday! I have been confined to the treadmill over the past few weeks and yesterday was finally the day to get back out there and run outdoors. It really hasn’t been that long since my last run outdoors, I think my last one was the beginning of February, but when I don’t have the option to run outdoors for more than a few days, it bites at me. So yesterday morning, since it was Saturday, I was able to sleep in later than I usually do during the week which meant it was light out, and although there was some snow on the ground there was no ice and it was a whopping 20 degrees out, so I went for it. Even though Friday was leg day and I have been battling a cold, being outside and running felt glorious! I made sure not to push myself too hard because of both reasons. I just ran throughout campus (since the sidewalks are always much safer there) and went for almost 6 miles. I did not want to do anything more than that so I was completely satisfied. Oh, and my phone decided to shut off because of the cold at mile 3 which meant no music and no RunKeeper, but for some reason, it did not bother me that much.
Besides that, I finished week 1 of phase 1 of Lauren Gleisberg’s Fit For Life program. I am already working on a full recap of the program that I will share once I make more progress throughout the program. But, to recap, I absolutely love it so far! After the first two days I realized that if I really wanted to see results I was going to have to hit up my apartment complex gym for heavier weights than what I have at my apartment (5 lbs and 8 lbs). So Thursday and Friday I made the trek out there and could instantly tell a difference. I woke up the each day after sore and could tell that I was really improving! I am ready to get going on week 2 tomorrow! I have been cooking up a few of her recipes from her Eat Your Way Lean and have been loving them so far!
