Alright here’s my first follow through for posting my work out log. This week definitely didn’t go exactly as I planned for my workouts but it helped soo much to have it all written out beforehand. Here’s what I ended up doing:
Monday: Ran 3 miles (35 minutes total – including 5 minute cool down). I felt tired and soo out of shape.
Tuesday: Unplanned rest day. The day got away from me.
Wednesday: 25 minutes at the gym – mat for abs and then free weights. Shoulders were sore the next day!
Thursday: 15 minute warm up run, 15 minutes of plyo work, 8 minute abs video.
Friday: teeny bit of leg exercises with exercise band while sitting at work.
Saturday: 4.29 mile run @ 9:30ish pace
Like I said, not 100% what I planned but I still feel good about what I did and I’m so happy to be getting back into a work out routine. It feels great!
Now a couple of other things to note since I haven’t posted in a few days:
I am notorious with my good friends for hating Spring. I get allergies and I think they’re the worst. I would much rather be sick. But I do have to admit, it is a very pretty time of year.
Friday night I went to a friend and coworker’s wedding reception. It was in a greenhouse/store and they had soo many pretty plants and colorful flowers. It was a GORGEOUS reception. I wish I had been able to get a picture with the bride because she looked amazing too!
My run on Saturday was with Sharsti and it was soo great! We haven’t been able to get together in months so it was so fun to chat and catch up. She’s in much better shape than I am, so it was really good for me to run with such a strong runner. (Sharsti – normally I can talk a lot better/have better lung capacity haha Next time I’ll be better I swear!)
And happy news – my foot only ached a little bit but didn’t actually hurt! Maybe I’m getting better!
and last but certainly not least, today is my dad’s birthday! Love him so much! He’s so funny, smart and witty. I’m so grateful to have him in my life. When I was about 10 he told me “Rock on with your bad self” and I’ve always loved that phrase ever since. So Dad, rock on with your bad self! Happy Birthday!
How were your workouts this week?
Do you like running with a buddy or alone?
