Workouts 5/5 – 5/11

15 May

This week was “Get Moving” week. I am supposed to be running a 10k when I go home to see my family the weekend of May 18th, and I haven’t been running. I tried to run Monday morning, but it was not possible. My body was revolting against me the whole time and I turned around after just ten minutes. Tuesday I met a friend at the gym for bodypump, only to find out the class was cancelled because the floors were being redone. We chatted while on the elliptical and I did my dreaded challenging burpee workout. Thursday I met a friend to run with and a nice, easy (slow) pace totally redeemed my Monday run. I felt great and wanted to run forever.

        yeah, basically I just do each one up to ten reps and then rest for the remainder of the 5 minutes. Maybe I’ll work up to 5 minutes straight in a few weeks.
