Happy Sunday and Happy Mother’s Day! I want to give a big THANK YOU to all of my readers that are moms. Being a mother has to be the hardest job in the world and you awesome ladies do not get enough credit – I salute you!! I hope that all the moms out there have an amazing day and don’t forget to pamper yourself!
Thank goodness that this week was WAY better when it came to my allergies! That’s not to say that I was completely motivated for all of my workouts (lol) but I got it done!
Here’s how my workouts went this week:
Monday, May 6
Spinning (50 minutes) + Core (10 minutes)
Back to spinning! I enjoyed a 30 minute pop ride and a 20 minute tabata ride. Man it felt great to get on that bike again – I missed it!
Tuesday, May 7
5 mile run + Full Body Strength (10 minutes).
I wasn’t feeling motivated to do my run so I decided to take two Peloton run classes. It’s great because the music is good and the classes always incorporate a warm up and cool down.
Wednesday, May 8
Boot Camp (60 minutes).
Class wasn’t too crowded this week – once the weather gets nice outside, the gym isn’t as crowded. It was kind of nice because we got to do more work on the different stations that the instructor set up in the room.
Thursday, May 9
3 mile run + Spinning (30 minutes).
I did the spinning class first and HOLY MOLY. I was busting my butt and it showed since I hit a huge output PR. I may have gone a little too hard because I felt pretty nauseous after the ride and had to wait a good 15 minutes before I could do my run.
Friday, May 10
Rest Day, but I did complete a 1 mile walk for the run streak.
Saturday, May 11
5 mile run.
This should have been a longer run but I was really pressed for time since I had two back-to-back morning appointments and a bunch of errands to run. Five miles is better than no miles, so I’m happy with what I was able to get in.
Sunday, May 12
Spinning (65 minutes).
Closed out week #3 of tabata training with a 45 minute hard ride and a 20 minute low impact class. I had to get my workout done early so that I could enjoy brunch with my mom later on today!
Total Weekly Mileage: 12 miles
Summary: 3 runs, 5 spinning class and 3 strength training workouts
Grade This Week – B+
I wish I could have gotten in more strength training this week. Sometimes I feel like I’m great at balancing all my different workouts – this week was not one of those times, lol. My Saturday run should have been longer (more like 9-11 miles), but I just didn’t have enough time. I will try for a longer run this upcoming Saturday. At least one positive is that I feel more prepared for my upcoming hat marathon in 2 weeks – I just hope it won’t be too crazy hot or humid. Memorial Day weekend is always a crapshoot when it comes to weather.
My foot has been giving me pause lately. I noticed some discomfort after my 10 mile run last weekend. It feels much better now than it did last Sunday but I still want to keep my eye on it. I can’t really describe it – it’s not a sharp pain or sore, but it just feels off.
