Sunday Summary–03/16/14

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.

Faster than Tuesday!

Faster than Tuesday!

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?
