Workout 10/14: 1ks

Workout: 3 x 1k
1) 8.6 mph on treadmill
2) DNF
3) 8.4 mph on treadmill
4) 8.5 mph on treadmill

My second lk was cut short since my ankle decided to bite. I don't know if it was wise to do those last two 1ks after that happened since I want to make it to the starting line on Saturday, but I did it anyway. I am glad I persevered; I just hope it wasn't at the cost of a sprained ankle.

Workout 10/13: Deadlifts 3-3-3-3-3

Workout: Deadlifts 3-3-3-3-3
1) 205#
2) 225#
3) 245#
4) 265#
5) 275# (PR)

Whew! I didn't think I would get that last deadlift set; starting was really labored. But once I got going, I kept going. This is a good reminder next time when I aim for another PR. The first one is always the hardest. For all of those who tried their first marathon this past weekend, the same rule applies. The first one is always the hardest. Also a good reminder for me with the URBANATHLON this Saturday. The first will be the hardest!
