Happy Sunday! Today I’m writing to you from Boston. I’m here this weekend to run the Run to Remember Half Marathon. As you’re reading this, I’m back on the train to CT. It wasn’t a super long trip but I was happy to get out of CT for a few days!
This week was actually great! I felt pretty much back to normal and all of my workouts went pretty well. I probably could have squeezed in one more strength workout, but I’m happy with what I was able to accomplish.
Here’s how my workouts went this week:
Monday, May 20
Tabata Spinning Class (20 minutes) + Strength Training (20 minutes).
My first class after taking a few days off due to my summer cold. This was the perfect workout to ease back into things.
Tuesday, May 21
Low Impact Spinning Class (20 minutes) + 3 mile run.
Still taking it easy, but decided to get in a run. Overall, it went well.
Wednesday, May 22
Boot Camp (60 minutes)
I love when the instructor sets up a bunch of different stations for us to use during class. I always feel like I get a true full body workout!
Thursday, May 23
4 mile run.
Got my run down nice and early before tackling a busy day. Since I was taking Friday off from work, I wanted to make sure I finished up a few projects.
Friday, May 24
Tabata Spinning Class (45 minutes).
Woke up early and I was able to fit in this class before catching the train up to Boston. We arrived in Boston around 1, grabbed lunch, checked into the hotel and then walked over to the Expo. It was a pretty chill day.
Saturday, May 25
I spent some of the day walking around Boston, including meeting up with Michelle for brunch, but also made sure to rest my legs for the race! Here are some photos from my walking adventure:
Sunday, May 26
Boston’s Run to Remember Half Marathon (13.5 miles according to my watch).
Half Marathon #40; State #13 (I miscalculated and this was actually my 40th half, not Delaware last month).
Race recap coming on Tuesday!
Total Weekly Mileage: 20.5 miles
Summary: 3 runs, 3 spinning class and 2 strength training workouts
Grade This Week – A
I finally completed the Ride Tabata with Robin training program. It took me 6 weeks vs 4 to complete due to allergies and a cold, but at least I finished! I have to say that I think my endurance is better on the bike after completing the program, which is exactly what I wanted. I will do a separate blog post about the training program and what I liked/disliked. In other Peloton news, I’ll be completing my 100th in a few days. I’m so excited! I’m going to take a live class from my bike so I just need to decide which one I want to take.
June is a pretty busy work travel month for me so I’m going to enjoy next week as my last normal week before all of the craziness, lol.
Before logging off, allow me to share this photo which provided me with endless laughs this week. I have no clue what race this is from, but this is one of the best race signs I’ve seen!
That’s it! I hope you had a great week 🙂
