cross train

So I am following a training schedule for my 10K that I working towards right now. today was cross train day, I rode my bike for 30 minutes and then did some abs.
tomorrow is a 2 mile run and strenth training.

friday is a rest/cross day. (they say walking is allowed as a cross train activity, so I might do that)

saturday is a 3.5 mile run. I already calculated the distance and I can run from anna(sonic) to melissa (well, the pizza hut) and that is 3.64 miles. I'll see if dave can pick me up when I'm done. Anyone want to join me saturday morning??

exercise

on thursday of last week, I ran another 2.71 miles.
friday I did 30 minutes on a bike and then sprint intervals on a treadmill for 15 minutes finishing with some push ups, squats, etc.

today I ran 3.05 miles and felt like I wanted to die. I did it all without stopping but felt really heavy and couldn't catch my breath. (maybe it was all that going out to eat I did this weekend while out of town?)

Then i did pilates abs to work my core area.

tomorrow, biking.

tuesday

I ran 2.71 miles and finished with a big hill! yeah me!!! You might be wondering how in the world I know the exact mileage of how far I'm going, I use mapmyrun.com to map out my distance based on which roads I follow. It's a really cool site, so I recommend checking it out if you are a runner and have no idea how far you are going.

Also, I did my customary halloween gorging(gouging?) myself with all the candy and sweets I could find for 2 days. And now I am done. I felt really heavy while I was running yesterday and I didn't like it. another reason why eating healthy is important - it makes your workouts go smoother and you feel better.

on another note, I was at the grocery store last night and saw this heavier lady (very heavy) with her cart full of:
4 12 packs of coke
5 2-liters of coke
8 6-bottle cases of coke
20 prozen pizzas (and not the healthier kind)
fritos
doritos
instant mashed potatoes

now, she MAY have been having a party...but she didn't look the type. Do we not realize what we are doing to ourselves? It just FEELS better when you eat right. don't people want to FEEL good? it's quite thought provoking, especially after I had my halloween candy thoughts after my run last night.
