Good afternoon! I hope you all had a great weekend!
Yesterday morning Danny and I started out our day at the gym as usual. We did back and bicep exercises. Our gym added a t-bar row contraption in the corner so we were able to try it out.
In the afternoon, we went to my cousin’s baptism.
My next upcoming 5k is the Mother’s Day race next month. I’m really trying to slowly get back into running. My hip is usually fine when I run but my Achilles tendon still gives me problems. I’m trying to go slow and do what I can without pushing it too much. This morning, I ran two miles without stopping and I was happy with that.
My Achilles did bother me a lot while running so I stopped at two miles (and walked half a mile), then I made sure to foam roll and stretch. It would help if I could remember to use the KT tape.
I’m trying to start running slowly so I don’t injure myself more. I ran two miles today in 21:53. I walked another half a mile. Then I did some triceps and shoulder exercises.
- cable tricep pressdowns
- cable overhead tricep extensions
- standing overhead extensions
- weighted tricep dips on bench
- dumbbell upright rows
- seated overhead presses
- single arm kettle bell swings
- dumbbell scaption
After the gym, my niece and I stopped at Target where we saw these new Boom Chicka Bites!
I didn’t buy any this time but I do plan on trying them soon. I love the Boom Chicka Pop popcorn so I’m guessing these are delicious too. They also have Boom Chicka Puffs which I think the kids would like.
We didn’t buy the Bites but we did buy a bag of of the Boom Chicka Pop Lemon Drop popcorn that was on Easter clearance for only .59 cents.
Gotta love Target clearance!
Have a great afternoon!
