NROL4W - Stage 7 - Tuesday - Workout 6

Stage 7-6

barbell dead lift 2x8x100 lbs
90 s rest

dumbbell squat, heels raised on plates 4x20x15 lbs
dumbbell shoulder press 4x20x15 lbs
step up 4x20x15 lbs
underhand-grip lat pull down (inverted row) 4x15-20
30 s rest

I'm taking 3 activity points for this bad boy. Since it was the last of the lifting for Stage 7, I pushed super hard. I will take a rest day tomorrow and finish out the week with some low intensity cardio/active recovery. On Monday, I start a new routine that will hopefully improve my strength and, if I eat right, help me gain some muscle.

Today we started our Go Far Club at school. We have 8 weeks until our 5K. We didn't do a lot of running today. Most of our time was spent going over expectations and goals and such, but we did get a few rounds of 5 minutes of walking, 2 minutes of running. I don't like running.

eggs w/ tomato & avocado, toasted Sandwich Thin w/ sugar free jelly [1 pt]
apple & cottage cheese
grilled chicken breast, Tex Mex bean & corn salad, roasted vegetables w/ homemade honey mustard dressing
yogurt & cereal

80 ounces of water and two coffees. 35 weekly points remaining. 2 activity points unused.

Tomorrow's workout - nothing! I have to work early then finish making my Green Team/Pumpkin Fair scarecrows.

Days Binge Free: 9

What's the age group of the kids running? How did they do? My kids are too little to run that far.

K-5. They did a good job. We didn't run far yesterday and the mostly walked. Sebastian did. He is not crazy about it but he's doing it, end of story. I think, on Nov 13, only the older kids (grades 3-5) run the 5K and the other grades run the 1-mile Fun Run. Lots of kids who did it last year came back this year.
