So today I decided to do some weight training. I figured it was a great way to start off the Fall into Fitness 30 Day Challenge.I even increased my weight on a few exercises. I have also been trying to hold onto my weights between sets if I am not too tired. This makes it a bit harder as your rest intervals aren’t full rests. It is just another tactic to make your workouts a little more intense. I like to use my EZ curl bar for a lot of exercises like overhead tricep extensions, bicep curls, bent over rows and etc. I did a good mix of exercises today. Mostly targeting biceps, triceps, traps, and some chest.
I suck at doing pushups and I decided that is something I want to improve on. So today I did 3 sets of 10 but on my knees. I want to eventually be able to do a decent amount of real push ups.
I was feeling some knee pain all day on the medial side of my right knee. I think it is due to my quads being tights and pulling on my patella. So I decided I should spend extra time with the foam roller. I usually dedicate my time to my calves and shins and I think i have been neglecting my quads and inner thighs. Right now I am just taking a break from the foam roller as it is so painful! And so now it is time to get back to it.
Oh since I am doing the challenge I thought I would post a bit of what my food has been like to keep track.
Breakfast: Protein, veggie, fruit, smoothie
Snack: miso soup
Lunch: Chili with lean turkey, chick peas and zucchini
Snack: baked apple with cinnamon
Dinner: Sheppard’s pie but with sweet potato, lean ground beef, peas, corn & a salad with mixed greens, tomatoes and walnuts
Overall a good day 🙂
Tomorrow will be start of week 9 – my LAST week on c25k!!! Hopefully this knee pain goes away
