Merry day before Christmas Eve (lol)! Hopefully everyone has finished their shopping – if not, I’ll send you positive vibes as you brave the crowds! It was another busy week at work but I was still able to get in some quality workouts.
Monday, December 10
Kickboxing (45 minutes).
This class is always a challenge but the instructor had us do a lot of extra leg moves and I was feeling it right after class AND the next day!
Tuesday, December 11
No workout. I had an after work function to attend.
Wednesday, December 12
Boot Camp (60 minutes).
I loved the circuits that the instructor set up for class this week!
Thursday, December 13
Spinning (45 minutes).
I took two Peloton spinning classes with Cody (a 30 minute and 15 minute). All of the Peloton instructors are great at giving motivational quotes during a ride.

New Canaan Santa Run 5K
This was a fun local race. My mom and I ran the race back in 2015. With less than 200 runners, it’s very much a no frills race but we did get a shirt and bottle of water at the finish. I’m okay with that as 100% of the proceeds from the race go to support a local charity. There’s nothing better than a race organization that gives back, especially during this time of year. I was surprised that this actually ended up being a trail race, lol. I was not expecting that but it wasn’t too bad. I’m still not totally sold on trails but I would try it again.
Sunday, December 16
Spinning (60 minutes).
Nothing better than ending the week with an hour long spinning class.
Total Weekly Mileage: 3.1 miles
Summary: 1 run, 3 spinning classes, 1 kickboxing class and 1 boot camp class.
Grade This Week – A
This was supposed to be a low-key week and it was. Between a busy work week and just the overall holiday craziness, I was happy to get in a good amount of workouts. Last week I decided to take the week off from running (besides the 5K yesterday) and it was the right decision. I went to my ART doctor on Thursday and it looks like I have hip bursitis in both hips. I had a feeling that was probably the issue. Both hips felt a little better this week, probably due to the lack of running, but they did start to ache towards the end of the race. I’ll probably focus on non-running workouts for next week as well. Luckily I’m not training for anything right now so I have flexibility when it comes to my workouts.
Also I have some exciting news to share – I will be a BibRave Pro in 2019! I’m really excited to join this network of really awesome and enthusiastic runners. Through BibRave I’ll have the opportunity to test out products and run in selected races, so you’ll be hearing more about them on my blog in upcoming posts 🙂
How was your week? What was the weather like on the “official” first day of Winter?
