Who doesn’t like leg day, right! I’m getting my weight up on the leg press, which makes me really happy to see the amount of strength I have now. It keeps getting better each time I go, and that is so motivating! The weather has gotten much nicer which means I can get a run in at the LSU Lakes. It feels great to be back to running the lakes, I spend many hours here as a student and after. Plus I had my fastest 5K to date at 37:31 and my farthest run at 3.61 miles. Woot!
Mardi Gras season came and went but I stayed on my training schedule with another three sessions. It was freezing on Fat Tuesday but I still made it out to the Zulu Parade. Night parades are much prettier but I didn’t get a chance to make it out to catch one this year and I’m really sad about it, I need new parade partners.
My trainer Jo has challenged me to step it up a notch, or two, well three actually. Three training session in one week! I was a leery of whether I could handle it but I surprised myself and survived. So this week’s vlog features those three sessions as well as my meal prep for the week.
I am back to where it started! ELLE ESS YOU! I bleed purple and gold, so I am very excited to return to my alma mater as an employee. I am the new CRM Manager in Continuing Education. It’s a great new opportunity for me and my career.
As for the my fitness journey, this past week we did a new “kettlebell boot camp” as my trainer Jo calls it. It was tough but effective! I’ve included a good bit of the workout, but there was so much more. This is just a snippet of an hour long workout. What’s even better is there is no need for a gym. Great for those days when you just can’t get out of the house.
