Pumpkin Pie Spice & a 5K


Tis the season of pumpkins! Someone suggested adding pumpkin pie spice to my protein pancakes and that's just what I did this morning. I recommend if your tired of the same ole thing. You can add it in to your oatmeal too!
I was able to beat the rain this morning and knock out a 5k run before I went to the gym. I want a pr of under 23 in the 5k. I'd like to focus on negative splits, which I almost was able to do in this last run but the hills kept that from happening (but I was close). 

5K Split Times

Mile 1 - 8:48
Mile 2 - 7:55
Mile 3 - 8:08

After my run I headed to the gym and worked legs. I hurt my hip flexor in the beginning of my workout so I kept the rest of my work out pretty easy. 

Leg Day
Step Ups w/ DB 16 reps, immediately to 20 squat jumps, 4 Sets
Stiff Legged Deadlift w/ BB 12 reps, immediately to 20 squat jumps, 4 Sets
Barbell Squats 
 Leg Press
