Manic Monday – 04/27/15

Photo Dec 30, 12 48 14 PM

Monday 04/20/15:  3 mile runch. The rain cleared up long enough for me to squeak in 3 miles–rain drops started falling right as I ran up to my building!  I also did Body Pump after work. It was my first class in a while, and it felt AWESOME. My work/gym buddy Freda was there, as well as another of our theatre friends, Kim, and a girl we’ve become friendly with through classes at the gym, so it was a fun atmosphere.

Tuesday 04/21/15:  Rest Day. It was rainy and windy, and I was tired and sore from the double workout on Monday, so I just did some light stretching and rolling after dinner.

Wednesday 04/22/15: REVtheme ride: Bollywood. This was my second spin class at REV, and I loved it just as much as the first time. My friend Chris taught the class, and a bunch of our other theatre friends were there. It was awesome! The Bollywood music was super fun, and I worked HARD the whole hour. This was an amazing way to start my Wednesday. I also did more rolling in the evening because my legs were still really sore from Pump plus spin.

Thursday 04/23/15:  Rest Day. Another chilly, cloudy day (I woke up to snow. On April 23. WTF), so I just didn’t feel like running or walking. 

Friday 04/24/15:  Rest Day. I had intended to runch, but my Friday lunch buddy Emily called me up at the last minute to meet. We haven’t had lunch in weeks, so it was nice to see her. (Also, woke up to more snow–almost 3 inches. Seriously?!?)

Saturday 04/25/15:  Rest Day. We had some friends over on Friday night and I had one drink too many, so Saturday morning I just wasn’t up to a run. But at the Legally Blonde cast party in the evening, I did lots of dancing, so it wasn’t a completely sedentary day.

Sunday 04/26/15:  Rest Day. I really did intend to run, but it was significantly colder than it’s been lately, and I didn’t pack any cold weather running clothes. I know it’s a lame excuse, but whatever. 

We’re still house-sitting until tomorrow, but after that, things should be “normal” again. Honestly I don’t even know what that means anymore after the craziness of the last few months. But I’m hoping this means I’ll be able to get back to the workout schedule I laid out in my Back on Track post. Here’s what I want to do this week:

  • Monday:  Body Pump
  • Tuesday: 3 mile runch
  • Wednesday:  Walk or short runch and Body Pump
  • Thursday: 3 mile runch and CXWORX
  • Friday: Rest
  • Saturday: GMAA Pump it Up 5 Miler
  • Sunday: Rest

Did you get any snow this week?

    We had some flurries around Philly, but close to 3 inches?!! That sucks 😦 Everyone around here was covering their flowers with blankets in fear of frost. I thought it looked silly, but hey, save the flowers!

      I know, I was worried about the ones around here that had bloomed, but I think most of them are ok, and it’s supposed to be warm and sunny this week, hooray!

    That’s nice that you set up your whole week before hand on how your runs and workouts will be. I’m so bi polar with running that I never know when I’ll feel off, so I always decide like a day before what I’m going to do. lol and we haven’t had a single day of snow where I live. haha

    Ugh snow?! We had a few flurries but that’s about it. It was really cold and windy though which absolutely sucked so I understand your desire not to “runch” under the circumstances. I hope this week is nicer!

    Snow in April- ouch! We had wind and a little bit of rain out here. Bollywood music might actually get me to a spinning class, that sounds awesome! In fact, I think I need to go look for some bollywood exercise music. Have a great week!

    Ugh, snow. I didn’t see any, thankfully, but one of my co-workers who lives a bit further west than I do got snow on the 23rd too. She was very unamused. Fingers crossed that’s the last snow you see til next winter!
