Instead of doing daily workout posts (so boring), I’m going to do a recap every Sunday. I plan to also throw in fun things that happened during the week, some food porn, and other randomness. So, without further ado, the inaugural Sunday Summary:
Monday: Walked 2 miles to work; 40 minutes strength training and stretching (bench press, squats, leg press, row, pull-ups, abs)
Tuesday: Walked 2 miles to work; ran 3 treadmill miles on a hill setting (level 2), at 5.5mph, and finished up with lots of stretching–my hips are SUPER tight!
Wednesday: Walked 2 miles to work; Since it was super snowy, I didn’t make it to the gym. Instead, I shoveled for 15 minutes, then did some arm work at home (pushups, dips, shoulder press, biceps curls, triceps curls, bent over row with kickback)
Thursday: Walked 2 miles to work through CRAZY snow. Then after all my complaining, the sun came out in the afternoon and it stopped snowing, so I actually made it to the gym. I ran 3.1 miles, between 5.5 and 5.7mph, did some assisted pull-ups, and lots of stretching.
Friday: Rest day. I started out walking to work, but my friend Andrea drove by and offered me a ride. Since it was only 9* out, I accepted gratefully. I did walk 2 miles home, though.
Saturday: I got up early and hit the gym to get my 4 mile run in so that we could enjoy the rest of the day. This is the longest run I’ve done in over a year and I was really nervous, but I seem to have found my stride lately, because it felt great! Although I did end up with some gnarly blisters. Guess I need some new socks!
Sunday: Rest day. Ben and I are house-sitting in a pretty rural area, so I REALLY rested. We drove Fran (my friend’s grandmother who we are “watching” in addition to house-sitting) to Church, then watched TV and knitted most of the day. We did end up taking Annie (cute little Jack Russell) for about a mile walk.
I’m really proud of myself because I hit my goal mileage for training, and I did a fair amount of cross-training too. Week one of half-marathon training in the bag!
How was your week? Did you hit all your goals?
