Teton Dam Marathon Review

On the 2nd of June, I woke up at 4am to make a 3 hour drive to eastern Idaho for the Teton Dam Marathon. I did the 5K.

Did I mention I woke up at 4am to make a 3 hour drive. Yeah, not the best idea for legs to be in PR shape. My leggies were stiff and at 1100 more feet of elevation then at home, it was a slow trot for sure. No PR attempt this trot, that's for sure.

I woke up at 4am (my normal wake up time is 8am - 10am depending on the day) so that early is  painful. I had everything all packed and ready the evening before- brekky, post-race clothes, snacks, and a full tank of gas for the long drive. All I had to do was make coffee and head out. I didn't even brush my teeth before I left. Coffee first.

The drive was nice and not a lot of traffic for a Saturday morning. I don't know the last time I have been to Rexburg, but it was easy to find the race start. I thought the race started at 8am, but that was the 10K. The 5K started at 8:30am and I got there to get my bib at …

Got 'er Done

A quicky after work workout at 1:30am! 23 minutes on the elliptical. 15 min on weights. Did quite a few weights to really work my arms. I don't feel weak, but arm work is needed. I didn't do any rows for some reason. Next arm session, I am going to try to lift a little higher. I am on 15lbs for most arms, and I can do 30lbs on triceps, but usually do 25. Downside is that they have dumbbells in 5 pound increments. That is scary, but I guess if I do it, I will have to rep to failure. Then go down to the lower weight to finish my reps. Anyways...

There are usually 2 dudes there when I go in but were not there very long last night. They left before I even got off the elliptical.  Fine by me.

I can take pics of myself in the mirror with only the security camera watching. Slight sweat fest.

Do you ever work out with free weights? It seems all the machines at ghetto renew are upper body related with only 3 for legs and lots of bars with benches. Good arms are nice, but that is not your only body part that needs to be worked. I miss having an adductor and abductor machine.

One good random thing about my day is that I won the Vega Sport goodies from Run To The Finish.
I am pretty excited about this!

What was your workout today?
