I went to the gym!

I finally got back into the gym yesterday! And let me tell you, it felt great! As you guys know I have been benched from running or doing any sort of high intensity workouts. So on Monday when I went to see my PT, I immediately asked him when I can start running again, (as I walked into the office with my “The Color Run” shirt on and he gave me a look, almost a look of “she can’t be serious” and I gave him a look right back that said “Oh, I’m very serious.” Then that’s when he nicely told me that I can start running again, but only start with a mile. Listen, starting with a mile is a mile more than I’ve done in the last two weeks, I’ll take it. 
 
But of course I don’t listen, so I ran almost two miles, (according to my Nike+ app, it looks like I ran almost six, I need to fix the calibration) the feeling was amazing, I took my time and ran at a pace of 4.5, slow but steady. I know I could have gone faster and longer, but I am trying to be in this for the long haul, so steady it is. 

In addition to running, I also bounced around on the weight machines a lot, I usually do three sets of 12 on each machine one time, however I decided to change it up and make it into a circuit. So this is what I did. 

Bench (chest) press
Glutes
Leg extension
Seated leg curl
Triceps press
Bicep curl
Hip adduction
Hip Abduction
Abdominal crunches
Lat pull down 

I know there are 100 other things I can and should be doing at the gym; however I like to do those at home on different days, planks, squats, lunges etc.  

I need a solid at home strength training workout, then I can get busy at home and at the gym also! Any suggestions?
