Happy Sunday! So I didn’t do a Weekly Wrap post last week because I was still in my workout funk. I’m happy to report that I’m now back to actually “wanting” to do my workouts. Not sure why I was in a funk but I’m just happy that it’s over now.
Now onto my weekly recap!
Monday, November 12
Kickboxing Class (60 mins).
I really enjoyed this class! Of course my legs were like “Girl, what are you doing?” but I pushed through. Monday was also Veteran’s Day. Thank you to all those who have served to protect our country. We don’t thank these men and women enough in my opinion.
Tuesday, November 13
4 mile run.
I’m so thankful for my treadmill, especially as we enter winter. It gets dark here super early, and I hate running in the dark after work, so I can always rely on my treadmill.
Wednesday, November 14
Boot Camp (60 minutes).
I definitely needed to spend some quality time with my foam roller after my boot camp class!
Thursday, November 15
6 mile run.
My legs weren’t happy with me, but it was nice to get in a run before Thursday’s snowstorm.
Friday, November 16/strong>
Rest Day. It was nice to have a rest day after 6 consecutive days of workouts. I was also able to run a few errands after work which was nice.
Saturday, November 17
8 mile run.
I figured I should try to get in a semi-long run since I have the RnR San Antonio Half Marathon in 2 weeks! For the first time in a very long time, this run felt pretty good. The weather was great, there was very little wind and my hips weren’t bothering me too much (KT tape for the win)! This run reminded me why I actually love running.
Sunday, November 18
Spinning (60 minutes).
It felt great to use this class to flush out my legs after yesterday’s run. I like ending my week with spinning every Sunday.
Total Weekly Mileage: 18 miles
Summary: 3 runs, 1 spinning class, 1 Kickboxing Class, 1 Boot Camp Class, 2 lunchtime walks
Grade This Week – A
I’m so happy that I’m back to my normal self this week. It’s always weird when I hit a workout funk because I’m someone that loves to exercise. I just felt off the past few weeks but now I think I’m back. My runs went well this week. I’m still experiencing some pain with my hips but just trying to work through it. I enjoyed the kickboxing class that I took on Monday and I’m planning on taking it next week as well.
As I mentioned, on Thursday we got our first snowstorm of the season. It was absolutely absurd how every state in the tri-state area (NY, NJ and CT) was unprepared for the storm. Streets weren’t salted or plowed. It took me 90 minutes to drive a mile – ONE FREAKING MILE. I was beyond pissed off when I finally got home. Then I started seeing horror stories on social media of people being stuck on bridges, side streets, etc. It took most people 4-8 hours to get home. I’m sorry but this was a complete embarrassment that all 3 states literally shutdown in 4-6 inches of snow! All 3 states need to do MUCH better and actually be prepared for storms.
In other more positive news, I finally signed up for Orange Theory Fitness! They are opening up a studio in my city in March but were running a Founders discount rate if you sign up before the opening. I signed up for the Elite package which consists of 8 classes a month. I’m really looking forward to trying the classes next year and I hope that they will help with my endurance.
On Thursday I’ll be running a Turkey Trot 5K in Valhalla, NY. This will be my first time doing this race and I’m looking forward to getting a nice warm cinnamon bun after the race. I’ll also get a cool sweatshirt as well. As always, I’ll be running in my turkey costume 🙂
How was your week? Did you get any snow? Are you running a Turkey Trot on Thursday?
