Workouts – 1/8 – 1/14

Oh wow, the first week back after 10 whole days off. Being sick really knocked me down, so I was pretty scared at how this week’s workouts were going to go. To top it off, I am running a half marathon in a week – like next Sunday the 20th!!! Super scary, but luckily I had a pretty successful 7.5 mile run on Sunday, even though it didn’t feel good. I ran an average of 9:12 minute miles, even though I had a head wind and my body felt like I weighed a thousand pounds. If I can fuel right and mentally push myself, I may have a successful PR next weekend!

Weekly Workouts 8/18 – 8/24

I’m finally back on track for posting my weekly workouts! I have been extremely busy with work which has not left me any time for writing blogs and hardly any time for working out. I’m glad to say I’m back on track with workouts, which is good because my pants are getting a little more snug than I prefer!

Saturday 8/18 – Workout at home – moving into a new apartment. We are moving upstairs in our house, so I spent about an hour carrying things up the stairs and running back down. I’m thinking I did 100 or so sets of stairs, with no A/C, so I got my sweat on.

Sunday 8/19 – REST

Monday 8/20 – OFF

Tuesday 8/21 – ~25 minute run, 5 min foam roll/stretch

Wednesday 8/22 –
A.M. – leisurely 1 hour walk
P.M. – 45 minute bike ride downtown

Thursday 8/23 –
P.M. – 10 minute walk/run on treadmill
60 minutes Zumba
30 minutes foam roll and stretch

Friday 8/24 –
Afternoon – 30 minutes cardio: 5 sets of hill sprints + walk/jog recover and 2 sets long sprints +walk/jog recover

What was your favorite workout from this past week?
