A 5km Run on Moving Day

Was really happy to squeeze in an upper body workout on Sunday afternoon before dinner... it was such a busy day with grocery shopping, packing, laundry and then having after-dinner guests to play dominoes....  I tripped over those 8lb. dumbbells just often enough to get motivated to pick them up for 15 minutes.

2 sets X 10 each of:
  • bicep curls
  • tricep kickbacks
  • overhead presses
  • lateral raises
  • delt raises
  • upright rows
  • pushups
  • standing abductors
  • standing adductors
Today was moving day and I woke up at 6:45 with a bit of a headache.... I realized I didn't have any coffee after lunch time yesterday, which is quite unheard of for me.  I remedied that very quickly, chomped down half a banana and then The Captain and I set off to get in a 5 km run before breakfast.

W3 R37 @9/1 W4
stretch 3 or 4 minutes
I had a stomach ache when we got back and I realized I was very hungry!  So the stretch got cut short in order to get some breakfast into me.

I really hope that I don't wake up tonight with leg cramps from not stretching very much... our first night back on the boat and no tub for soaking.  Thank goodness for Tiger Balm! 


  1. squeezing in workouts all over the place, nice work! Hope the move went well!

  2. I hate moving! Hope it was smooth for you and you aren't all cramped up from not stretching! I hardly ever stretch which I know is so bad!

  3. hope the move went smoothly...i have been terrible about skipping over stretching for food lately ;) i need to get back on track! haha! great job on your workout!!

  4. I've never tried Tiger Balm! I hope your legs feel okay! Getting a run in before breakfast is amazing. It makes my day go so much better knowing that I got it out of the way first thing!

  5. You have such awesome upper body workouts! I can't wait to try them! :)
    This one looks like something I can do. I need to get motivated to do strength training again - thanks for giving me all of these great ideas!

    I hope your move is going well too! :)
