I was part of a challenge to get my sweat on 7 days in a row. I completed the challenge! I also worked out the day before the challenge started so that makes 8 days in a row for me which is definitely a record.

I’ll see how the pegs are feeling tomorrow and decide if I want to make it 9 in a row!

Morning work out


  • 32:50 and 2.5 miles. Obviously not a great mile time but I warmed up with a slow paced jog for 5 mins and also incorporated 2 2.5 min walking breaks. Not taking any chances with my hamstring.

Isolateral plate loaded row:

  • 100 lb x 10 reps
  • 190 lb x 6 reps (struggled)
  • 130 lb x 9 reps
  • 130 lb x 8 reps
  • 100 lb x 10 reps

1-arm dumbbell row:

  • 35 lb x 7 reps
  • 35 lb x 7 reps
  • 35 lb x 7 reps
  • 35 lb x 7 reps

Assisted Pull-ups: body weight is 194ish right now, used a 70 lb assist

  • 124 lb x 5 reps
  • 124 lb x 5 reps

Quick workout before my staff party.

Leg press:

  • 210 lb x 15 reps
  • 300 lb x 12 reps
  • 390 lb x 10 reps
  • 480 lb x 6 reps
  • 300 lb x 10 reps

Triceps extension:

  • 60 lb x 15 reps
  • 75 lb x 15 reps
  • 90 lb x 12 reps
  • 105 lb x 10 reps


  • 33:30 starting at level 5 and increasing by 2 levels every 5 mins with a 3:30 cool down.

It’s safe to say my hamstring is 100% now. I will move back to squats and running next workout as well as put more time in.

Decent workout.

Did the elliptical for 30mins to loosen my hamstring. It did the trick! I stretched for a good 10 minutes after and then did some shoulder exercises.

I should be back to running by the weekend I hope.

Thanks, Hamstring

I’m so thankful I lifted weights before I did cardio because I’ve really pulled my right hamstring. Had I known this would happen I would have done a lot more weights. My focus tonight was going to be cardio.

Tonights work out: 

  • Running (treadmill):
    • 0:13:35 || 1.5 mi 
  • Machine Triceps Extension:
    • 45 lb x 15 reps 
    • 60 lb x 15 reps 
    • 75 lb x 15 reps 
    • 90 lb x 10 reps 
  • Leg Press:
    • 390 lb x 10 reps 
    • 390 lb x 8 reps 
    • 300 lb x 8 reps 
    • 300 lb x 6 reps 

I feel good about moving back to squats as soon as my hammy heals up, I just wanted to see how the pegs were feeling having not set foot in a gym in a long time.

Workout Idea?

Does anyone do any outdoor workouts involving little to no equipment? I want to make up a workout I can do in a field with just my body and some cones.

Lookin’ at you track and field folks!

Super sore but got my workout in.

Didn’t lift as I had intended, but I did a solid 30 minutes of HIIT on the elliptical. 

6am wake ups start tomorrow with morning work outs to commence in a few days.

Do work, get better!

I am so sore!

What a great lift last night! Deadlifts, squats, plus my usual full body routine.

My hamstrings, quads, shoulders, and biceps are screaming at me and I LOVE it!

I did a bunch of core work too, though my abs (if you want to call them that) aren’t really sore.

My alarm for tomorrow. I’m going to the gym before work.
