Happy Sunday! Did you have a good week? Man, was this a crazy week (more on that below), but at least I was still able to get in all of my workouts. Also can we discuss Mother Nature? We literally got more snow in March than we received all winter! I have to laugh at it because it’s just so ridiculous.
Here’s how my workouts went this week:
Monday, March 4
3 mile run + core work (10 minutes)
Monday was quite the day. We got a good amount of snow Sunday night into Monday morning. I planned to work from home since the roads were still pretty bad Monday morning. Then I found out that my office building had no phone or internet so it was a good thing that I didn’t try to drive there! In the afternoon I heard that Luke Perry passed away which made me so incredibly sad 🙁 I loved his acting and he always seemed like such a nice man.
I also had a dentist appointment that afternoon and as I walking into the office I dropped my phone and the screen completely shattered. This has NEVER happened to me before so to say I was pissed would be an understatement. I had to drive over to Verizon after my appointment and get a new phone (it would cost almost $200 to fix the screen so it was better just to get a new phone). I had my old phone for 2.5 years and I loved it. At least it was paid off so I guess that’s a good thing.
Tuesday, March 5
Spinning (60 mins) + core work (5 minutes).
I took two Hip-Hop spinning classes to start off my day. My office still didn’t have working phone or internet access so it was another work from home day.
Wednesday, March 6
Boot Camp (60 minutes).
Another great full body workout! Today was also Ash Wednesday which is the beginning of Lent. Every year I give up something that I love for Lent. This year it was between giving up social media or pizza. Honestly, social media is one of the things that keeps me sane and it’s a way for me to connect with others so I thought it would do more harm than good to give it up. Instead I gave up pizza. If you know me, you know this is going to be a struggle. I usually eat pizza 1-2x a week (90% of the time I make it at home so that it’s healthier). Pray for me!
Thursday, March 7
4 mile run + core work (10 mins).
My sinuses were completely going nuts which made the run difficult. I had to blow my nose numerous times just to breathe and get through the run. I guess allergy season is here? It’s just weird considering it was 5 degrees outside…
Friday, March 8
Saturday, March 9
7 mile run + core work (5 minutes)
This run was a bit of a struggle. Did you know that margaritas the night before a run aren’t a good idea? LOL
Sunday, March 10
Spinning (45 minutes) + Core Workout (10 minutes)>
Total Weekly Mileage: 14 miles
Summary: 3 runs, 4 spinning classes and 1 strength training workout
Grade This Week – A-
I apologize for the lack of workout photos on this post. I noticed that a lot of my photos on IG are very similar so I’m trying to think of different types of workout photos I can share on there so that my feed doesn’t look so predictable/boring, LOL.
Even though this was a crazy week, I am happy with my workouts. I’m keeping up with my core workouts and trying to do at least 5 minutes of core exercises a day. I hope that I’ll start to feel a difference in a few weeks. I am definitely trying to get a six-pack, just trying to get stronger. This week I realized that I’ve been a little lax when it comes to my PT and foot exercises so I tried to make more of an effort to do both more regularly this week. I have a tendency to NOT do the exercises when things are feeling good but I know I need to get out of that mindset.
Earlier in the week I signed up for the Stamford City Challenge. This is an obstacle type race (very similar to Spartan Race) and since it’s going to be in my city, I jumped at the chance to sign up. Hopefully it will be a nice challenge for me to do this summer.
When is the last time you’ve had a crazy week?
