Sharing is Caring
It is no great secret that I have an unhealthy love and adoration for peanut butter — like coffee, I sometimes get excited when going to bed knowing that I get to wake up in several hours and enjoy some of it!
Sadie seems to have the same peanut butter affliction and will come running into the kitchen every time she hears me turn the lid on the jar. For every spoonful that I eat she is guaranteed a few licks (after I am done with the spoon, thank you very much). While at the pet store the other day, Joe stumbled across peanut butter made specifically for dogs:
She’s a big fan!! That is her in the background enjoying some on a treat. The best part is that I no longer have to share my jar with her.
Workout — 3.27.2013
Last night, just as sleep was over taking me, Joe asks if I want to go to the gym with him in the morning. Now, I go to the gym every morning and on Monday, Wednesday, Friday, and Sunday I am typically flying solo — those mornings I have to creep around the bedroom with a tiny flashlight out of fear of waking him up. Not to mention, large sums of money wouldn’t coax him out of bed earlier than necessary so I was a little surprised when he said he wanted to join me this morning.
My workout today started like most of my workouts do, on the treadmill. I got 3 miles under my belt (27:57) by running the first 1.5 miles at an easy 6.0 pace and then cranking up the speed every 1/2 mile after that. The last 1/2 mile I experienced what I can only compare to “senior-itis” — I was a bit bored and just wanted it over with so I sprinted that last 1/2 mile.
Oh summer running, you can’t come fast enough!!
After I was done on the treadmill I completed this Super Sweaty Interval Workout:
Unlike Monday, I remembered my interval timer today and put it to work doing 10 seconds of rest/transition and 50 seconds to work. For this workout, there are 3 sections of which you complete 3 rounds of the 10/50’s of each exercise before moving on to the next section. I hope that makes sense.
For the 3 rounds of Deadlifts, I used a 70, then a 60, then a 50 pound barbell — for the Overhead Lunges I used a 50, then a 40, then a 30 pound barbell — for the Kettlebell swings I used a 35, then a 30, then a 25 pound kettlebell and finally, for the Cleans I used a 60, then a 50, then a 40 pound barbell.
It is amazing how light (and how wonderful) those last set of weights feel once I finally got to them!
I am a big fan of this interval workout and I love how exhausted I felt when I was done!
You can’t beat a morning that starts like this!
