Workouts 10/9 – 10/15

This week was pretty good as far as workouts were concerned. My stomach was not cooperating but it didn’t stop me from working out. I think everything is almost back to normal, a week after accidentally eating cheese. UGH, lesson learned from that one! My long run today was challenging but I finished feeling pretty good, even after taking a wrong turn and adding an extra half mile!

Total body workout with heavy weights adapted from Don’t worry, I didn’t do ALL of these exercises as prescribed. I did most of the legs, about two rounds of chest/tri/shoulders and two rounds of some of the back/bicep exercises. I was a little short on time and quite tired after I finished legs!

Workouts 12/18 – 12/23

This is another week of split workouts, Sunday and Monday are in Minnesota and the rest of the week is in San Antonio. It was a little chilly Sunday morning for the track workout but Danica and her sister, who is a very fast runner, were good motivators and we ran a lot farther than I would have run on my own.  I had planned to take my mom & aunt to Zumba at the local YMCA because it is such a fun class, but they were both busy and as it turned out, that was fine because the instructor was injured and couldn’t teach the class. Danica and I lifted some weights instead.
