Workout Routine & Jason's Deli



So, I’ve done some thinking and a bunch of reading about running and the most efficient ways to cross train.  Im thinking that its time I switch up my weekly workout routine.  Of course, its not like Ive been able to stick the one Ive been doing due to all the overtime Ive been working at work.  More than half the time Im not getting my strength training sessions done because I literally dont have the time to do them.  But, this new routine Ive come up with only has me strength training twice a week instead of three times like Ive been trying to do.  I think this will be easier for me.  Also, Im adding more cycling to my weekly routine.  Again, its not like Ive been able to keep up with the once weekly cycling that’s part of my current routine, but this way, if I miss one, I’m still getting at least one time of cycling in per week.  So, heres the proposed new weekly routine:

Sunday: long run
Monday: cycling 1.5-2 hrs
Tuesday: medium run
Wednesday: legs/calves/abs strength training
Thursday: cycling 1.5-2 hrs
Friday: short run/speed work
Saturday: upper body strength training (looooong workout)

I will have to put together new strength training exercise plans for this routine.  I’m not sure when I’ll implement this plan either.  I would do it this week, but I’m not sure.  I think this week I just want to focus on making myself get up “on time” regularly and get used to it.  I’m working a double shift on Tuesday so I will only get 5 hours of sleep on Wednesday in the morning before having to be back at work in the afternoon.

I ate a spur of the moment meal out today.  I went to Jason’s Deli and had the California Club with fruit side and yogurt dip and a slice of cheesecake with sliced strawberries.  I figured I’d get hungry after my run (ran 10.5 miles in 2 hours and 1 minute for 1440 calories burned) this evening, however I didn’t, so that’s the only thing I ate today besides energy chews and a gel for run fuel/refuel.  But I never count those in my calorie counts for the day.  Anyway, here’s the combined nutrition info for my lunch (holy cow look at that fat!  94g!!!  And 46g of SATURATED fat!!!  Egads!  Good thing this isn’t something I eat often):

  1. Though you might feel a little disappointed that you couldn't stick to your exercise routine, I think that you're still doing a great job considering that you are busy with your work too. Squeezing these routines for an hour or two in your busy schedule is still better than not exercising at all. I congratulate you for that!
