Happy Sunday! Can you believe that we closed out another month this week? March has already started out with a few inches of snow so I’m starting to think that the groundhog was wrong. But that’s okay, while I don’t like snow, I don’t mind Winter and I don’t even want to think about Spring because that’s peak allergy season – ugh!
Here’s how my workouts went this week:
Monday, February 25
5 mile run + core work (20 mins).
It was super windy (like shake my car windy) so I opted for 5 miles on the treadmill. Recently I’ve been adding something extra after my runs (core work, strength training, etc) and I really like. I know all of these small things add up over time.
Tuesday, February 26
2 mile run + Spinning (45 mins).
The spinning class featured pop music from the 90s so it was super fun! I loved jamming along while on the bike.
Wednesday, February 27
Boot Camp (60 mins).
As usual, I came home sore. No surprise there!
Thursday, February 28
6 mile run.
It’s always a little rough to run the day after boot camp but I’m hoping that eventually my legs will get used to it.
Friday, March 1
A much needed rest day!
Saturday, March 2
5 mile run + strength training (20 mins).
I woke up to a good amount of snow so it was off to the treadmill to get in some miles! I followed up the run with 20 mins of strength training (10 mins arms / 10 mins core).
Sunday, March 3
Spinning (60 mins).
I enjoyed the spinning class today. Although I really, really enjoy the Peloton spinning classes, I love the energy of taking a live class and being in a spin room with other people. The class was packed today (just one empty bike) so it got rather warm in there, but extra sweat makes for a great workout, right?
Total Weekly Mileage: 18 miles
Summary: 4 runs, 2 spinning classes and 3 strength training workouts
Grade This Week – A-
Overall I am really pleased with my workouts this week. I felt like every single workout, even my runs, went well. I also have a goal for the month of March to do core work every day. My hope is that it will turn into a habit if I do it every day this month. I know that my core can definitely be stronger and that’s one thing I want to focus on before marathon training starts in the summer.
Earlier this week I found out that there will be a free Shamrock Stroll 5K in my city in 2 weeks. It’s more of a “fun run” but I still plan on doing it with a few ladies from my weekend running crew – it should be fun!
That’s it for this week! Now I’m off to do some cleaning and meal prepping for next week. We’re expecting another snow storm overnight so I’ll probably work from home tomorrow, but I still want to have my lunch prepared 🙂
Did you have a good week?
