Getting beat up over a test

In Daily Exercise Summary on May 13, 2009 at 11:56 am

I had a brutal test day yesterday, so when I finished at 5pm I shot over to the gym. I ran out 4 miles on the treadmill in 33mins51secs. Not bad, I then got on the exercise bike and brutalized my quads and glutes for 18 minutes.  It felt good not to be sitting in front of a computer and typing.

I have one more question in an hour and then I am done taking tests for quite possibly the rest of my life…

Today was a good workout. I reached my target distance and was able to complete a reasonable 15-20 minute workout afterwards. I would like to continue working on that to get about 7-8 exercises in. I want to have 2-3 core workouts a week, one lower body and one upper body. The quads really burned during the extensions, but besides that it felt good.

For the run we worked through the standard 2.5 miles, but the last .6 mile was done with ever increasing speeds. I think I did that in somewhere near 3:30. So it was a blistering pace for me.
