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?

Workouts 4/28 – 5/4

This week felt like a big fail for workouts. I was extremely tired every day and just didn’t have the energy to go workout. I forced myself to workout on Tuesday by driving straight to the gym after work, although I almost drove home without doing the workout. After I was done, I felt a little better and went for a bike ride to dinner with Ben. The highlight of my week was Friday’s Master Zumba class, which was held at a club in San Antonio. Some of the instructors were pretty advanced with the steps but it was very fun. I had been in a bad mood before, but after 90 minutes of dancing I was energized and happy.

Workouts 4/14-4/20

It’s 5k week and I don’t know if I’m tapering, and I don’t know if I need to. I really feel like I need to save my feet and have enough strength to run a fast race, but that’ll mostly come down to fueling the night before and day of the race. That being said, the weekend was a good workout and then it slowed down. My bike ride on Wednesday was SO fun, I really enjoy bike riding in good weather!

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.

Saturday, October 22 –

Thursday, October 27th –
PM: 20 minutes abs

Friday, October 28th-
PM: 4 mile run in 36.01 minutes!! I ran with two girls from work in our work neighborhood. The is a HUGE hill and we decided it would be a good challenge run, and it was! There were no shortages of hills along the whole run and I think the only reason I finished in 36 minutes was because I let myself fly on the downhills, which were almost as big as the up-hills. It was a good, quick run that burned off some stress of the week.
