So remember how I said I decided not to do Jamie Eason’s Livefit Trainer because I couldn’t completely commit to it? The program requires no cardio for the first stage and with training for my half marathon, that’s just not possible for me! I decided, instead, to go ahead with my original strength training plan for the semester, which is the New Rules of Lifting for Women.

The New Rules of Lifting for Women

I first heard about this program on Meghann’s blog, Meals and Miles. I decided this program would work well for me because she’s been doing it while also training for other races (and a triathlon!!!).


I started off with stage 1 workout A (there’s a workout A and B for each stage and you alternate between them) on Monday. However, once I got home, I realized that I had actually done stage 2! I copied the wrong pages out of the book! I looked at Meghann’s stage 1 recap where she said it was good for people who were starting out with weight lifting. Since I’ve been doing it on my own for over a year now, I decided it would be fine to just skip stage 1 and continue with stage 2. I did workout B for stage 2 on Tuesday. Both Tuesday and Wednesday my legs were super sore! I wasn’t as impressed, however, with the upper body workouts. Maybe I just need to up my weights.

I’m not completely sold on it yet, but I’m going to at least complete stage 2 before deciding if I want to continue with the book or just continue strength training on my own. One of the things I like about coming up with my own strength training programs is that I’ll do only upper body one day and only lower body the other day. This way, I can time my workouts based on my runs and not do legs the day before a longer training run. In NROLFW, they combine upper and and lower body workouts in one workout, which makes it more difficult to not have sore legs for a run.

Either way, here’s my workout plan for the week:

Now another thing I tried new was Julie’s Egg White Oats. I just recently discovered her blog, Julie Go Lean and I love a lot of the recipe ideas!

It was very delicious, and voluminous! I topped it off with a T of peanut butter and a bag of frozen peas for my burnt fingers… I actually kept spilling it out of my pot and then ended up burning my finger… I was a mess. Although there was a lot there, it was not super filling, I was getting really hungry only about 2 and a half hours later. That could have, however, been due to the serious metabolism boost I got from an unexpected power walk that morning…

Apparently the city has taken out two bridges right next to my school for the entire semester and is doing construction. This means all my buses are re-routed. I took a different one than I had my first day, so this time I had to get across the river myself. I could go north or south of my school’s street. I picked North. I picked wrong. Very wrong. I was totally blocked by construction and ended up power walking 0.85 miles to get to class on time (yes, I looked it up on Google Earth later on).


Have you ever followed a book or guide for weight training, or do you prefer to make it up yourself?

Anyone else training for spring races!?
