GSC Countdown: 147 days.

So it’s 147 days until PHM/GSC weekend. The official Galloway training plan doesn’t start until Tuesday, so I figured I would begin with some preconditioning to get me in shape for all those long runs that I will be doing in the coming months.

After Singers rehearsal, I made my way to our campus gym. Today’s workout consisted of 3/4 of a mile on the treadmill, lots of arm/lifting stuff (lat raises, triceps, rows, shoulder presses), and trying out our new dumbbells for bicep curls. (Granted, I’m only starting at 5 lbs, but lots of reps = progress.) I also engaged in abdominal exercises via Debbie Seibers’ Slim in 6 Pack workout. My core was on fire, but it felt amazing.

I also ate really well today. After coffee and mini Reese cup pumpkins for breakfast, I noshed on salad, steamed veggies, and rice/stir fry at the chow hall after my workout. I completed my myfitnesspal entry and even with the treats, the calorie counts were very reasonable. After a three hour nap, I had a baked potato with salsa for dinner (one of my favorites!).

Tomorrow is leg day. I might collapse behind the timpani during Symphonic Winds in the afternoon. 😛

Even for my first day, I consider this an accomplishment since I haven’t done much since I ran the PHM in February.
