Weekly workout roundup


Boy these last two weeks have been a blur.   I have been running like fiend which has made me realize that I totally need to rework the basement where my treadmill is. My goals for the next two weeks (listen up Nathan, this means you!!) is to get my TV up and functioning with cable down there, figure out a better fan situation cause even though it is about 40 degrees down there, it gets HOT and move some boxes into the trash so I have more space to work out.  I think that’s doable, right?

Anywho, here is the workout roundup for last week. I made more of a training log notebook so it has made it really easy to track my workouts. I will use it for a few more weeks and then let you see how it is going.
