Training - Week 14 - Week 12 of Marathon Training - Monday - Active Recovery

Woke up this morning to some super sore legs. My right ankle area was pretty tender as well. I set out on my bike and rode to the Y for some circuit training. I did not go very far on the bike and actually just rode straight there to give my legs and ankle all the rest they need, but I also know a little bike ride would not hurt either.

I rode the 2.25 miles adn proceeded with an upper body circuit workout. I found the workout on Midwest Fit, which is one of the best workout websites that I have ever come across. I love the workouts. I subscribe to them and always look forward to a new way to better myself with weights.

I did modify the workout suggested today to fit my needs and my time frame.

Here is what I completed


Circuit 2 Times:

1. Regular Pull Ups - 10
2. Dumbbell Bench Press – 12
3. Single Arm Military Press - 10 (both sides)
4. Dumbbell Row - 10 (each arm)
5. Shoulder Up and Outs - 10 total (each arm)
6. Tricep Push Ups - 20
7. Chin Ups - 6
8. Bicep Curls

Abs/Core:

1. Flutter Kicks – 1 Minute
2. Plank – 1 Minute
3. Flutter Kicks – 1 Minute
4. MB Twists - 1 Minute
5. Crunches

I then 2.25 miles home. Not a bad way to start off the week. Short bike ride to loosen the legs and a good circuit training session. 

GETTING IT DONE! once again.

One last thing, if you have not checked out Live Uncommon website, then you are missing out. Go check it out for yourself. I am in the process of ordering another shirt for my race. Why don't you check out the gear and let me know what color and style of shirt I should go with for my race. Leave suggestions in the comments.
