Happy Sunday! Week 2 of training went very well. I was happy to get in 3 strength classes this week, but sad that I didn’t fit in any Yoga this week. It’s so hard to fit in everything and sometimes I don’t feel like doing anything after a run. I really just have to suck it up and find a way to fit it in because I feel that it’s important for injury prevention. Here were my workouts for the week!
4 mile run + 10 minute Glute and Hip Strengthening workout from the Run & 10 DVD
Body Works + Abs class (55 minutes). I think this class will be my normal Tuesday class moving forward. I really enjoy it!
60 minute Boot Camp Class. My legs were pretty sore so this was a hard class for me but I got through it.
I powered through 5 miles with Bruno Mars 🙂
Rest days are the BEST days!
My training plan called for 4 miles. I ran the Harbor Point Shamrock Stroll 5K and then ran the extra distance after the race. This was a local untimed race, but it was my first official race of the year. It was absolutely FREEZING on Saturday. It was 15 degrees with a real feel of 8 degrees. Luckily I dressed well and warmed up within half a mile but I really prefer to run indoors when it’s that cold!
I enjoyed an awesome double workout – body works + abs and spinning. I love ending my week with a great workout!
Total Weekly Miles – 13
Grade – A+ 🙂
Week 2 was great and I’m still feeling strong. I did have some leg soreness early in the week but I think that is coming from a combination of running and back-to-back strength training classes. I’m sure my legs will get used to this in another week or so!
Connecticut is expecting a huge snowstorm on Tuesday so I see some home workouts in my future for next week 🙁 Thank goodness for workout DVDs and treadmills to help keep me on track!
