It was strength day at OTF today. This means inclines lots of inclines. All I can say is I’m glad I didn’t go on Monday as it was the Everest challenge which meant that you were walking on some serious incline for the entire tread block. Well today we had the inclines and a short walking block which had us by the end at 15% incline. What?? I thought I was going to fall off the dang thing. Man, it was definitely making the hamstrings burn. I couldn’t imagine doing this after completing Monday’s workout. I’m pretty sure I wouldn’t be able to walk.
By the time I was finished with the floor blocks my arms and shoulders were shot. I was definitely pushing it with the weight I was using. I’ve been upping my game when it comes to weight the past week or two. My arms were so dead I could barely wash my hair yet alone brush it out and put it up. They weren’t really working at all it was a struggle.
It was a good workout and I kept with my new paces I’ve set for myself. So I’m happy with it. The heart rate monitor is still being wonky but I know I’m working and improving.
At work I had a great training seminar and learned a ton and can’t wait to start implementing it. I love working at a place that is encouraging, supportive, and doing all they can to help you grow and achieve your goals.
Best part is I came home to a yummy smelly home thanks to the crockpot and Pinterest once again. I threw everything in this morning set it on low and when I got home it was done and just needed to be turned to keep warm and dinner would be ready to go.
Tonight it was garlic honey chicken with veggies. There is plenty of leftovers for the freezer so that’s a bonus.

So the last three nights I’ve been enjoying a glass of this wonderful deliciousness from Whole Foods. Sorry it’s empty as I thought about taking a picture as I was getting ready to drop the bottle in the recycle bin. So by the fact that it’s empty should tel you what I think of it.
I’m hoping they still have some in stock when I go back to pick up some items from Whole Foods this weekend.
Happy Hump Day!!! It’s all downhill to the weekend.
