Happy Sunday! For the first time in forever we finally had more days with sunshine instead of rain. I think summer is starting to come around. I’m not that pleased about the heat but I’m also so sick of the relentless rain!
I was traveling in the beginning of the week but still managed to get in my workouts – yay! Here’s how my workouts went this week:
Monday, June 3
4 mile run.
Although I’m sure I let out a few curse words, it was nice to get the run done early before my morning train to DC. I was in DC on Monday/Tuesday for team meetings this week.
Tuesday, June 4
Elliptical (20 minutes) + HIIT cardio (30 minutes).
I had a full day of meetings and then a 4 hour train ride home so I had to get in my workout in the morning. I was surprised that there were people already in the hotel gym at 6am. I had planned on using the free weights for some strength training but there was a guy grunting like a maniac over in that section. It was just too early in the morning for that nonsense so that’s when I went upstairs to my room to do the HIIT cardio classes. Also the gym had a Peloton bike, but for some reason I couldn’t log into my account. I was bummed 🙁
Wednesday, June 5
Boot Camp (60 minutes).
It felt nice to be back home and back to my normal Wednesday night boot camp class. We did hella squats during class so I was feeling the burn.
Thursday, June 6
3 mile run + strength training for runners (30 minutes).
Another morning workout complete! This was my first time taking one of the strength for runners on the Peloton app and it was great! I need to do those types of classes more vs the traditional strength training classes.
Friday, June 7
This couldn’t have come at a better time since I was pretty much sore all day – probably DOMS from my Tuesday/Wednesday workouts.
Saturday, June 8
3 mile run + 1 mile walk.
This run was a slog from start to finish. The weather was decent, not too warm, but the sun was out in full force. I think I was probably dehydrated as well because my fingers were pretty swollen by the time I finished. I was actually hoping to get in 6 miles, but I have to be happy with what I was able to get done.
Sunday, June 9
Spinning (60 minutes).
My only spin class this week but it was a great one!
Total Weekly Mileage: 10 miles
Summary: 3 runs, 1 spinning class, 2 strength training workouts and 1 walk
Grade This Week – B+
Another decent week, but it could have been better. I’m really looking forward to my workouts this week because I have my first Orange Theory Fitness class on Thursday! The studio is finally open (there were some issues during construction). I’m really looking forward to getting in there and seeing what these classes are all about!
I have a 6am flight to Toronto tomorrow and I come back on Tuesday night. It’s going to be another busy two days. I doubt I will get in a workout on Monday (actually, I know I won’t) so I may have to switch my rest days this week but that’s okay – it’s all about making adjustments!
That’s it! I hope you had a great week 🙂
