Happy Sunday! As usual, it feels like this weekend went by entirely too quickly 🙁 Why do the weekend seem so long and then I blink and the weekend is over?!
This was quite a week! I felt like I got in some great quality workouts but I was a bit clumsy this week as well. Overall I think I have pretty good coordination but it seems like this was just a week of errors. More on that below..
Here’s how my workouts went this week:
Monday, February 18
4 miles + Core Exercises (30 mins).
I was happy to have the day off work for President’s Day. I was able to get my workout done nice and early!
Tuesday, February 19
No particular reason for this unexpected rest day, I just didn’t really feel like working out after getting off work and running errands. Also I hit my knee pretty hard on the edge of bed that morning and it was still kind of sore by the end of the day. Let this be a reminder to always turn the light on in your room, especially if it’s the middle of the night and you’re just trying to get to your door to go downstairs to use the bathroom, LOL.
Wednesday, February 20
Spinning (45 mins) + Strength Training – Arms and Bodyweight (20 mins).
Bad weather meant no boot camp class so I got in another workout at home.
Thursday, February 21
5 mile run + Strength Training – Glutes and Legs (20 mins)
This run felt pretty good and I loved adding in some strength training afterwards.
Later on that evening I stubbed my toe running up the stairs. Thankfully it just stung for a few minutes and then went away.
Friday, February 22
Rest Day. Also it’s currently Restaurant Week in Stamford so I went to a steakhouse with my family for dinner after work. Although it was delicious, it was quite a heavy meal, especially with a run the next morning.
Saturday, February 23
5 mile run.
This run was okay, despite feeling a little sluggish from the dinner the night before. One highlight was that a new woman joined our weekend run group! All was going well until I took a nice tumble shortly after mile 4. It was 100% my fault as I was running but also looking over my shoulder to point something out to one of the runners. I tripped over a tree branch. My right hip took the brunt of the fall (which hurt pretty badly). I took some Motrin when I got home and luckily it wasn’t hurting me at all today.
This was also my first run with my new Turtle Gloves (thanks BibRave)! Thery were warm and soft and I love the option to convert the gloves from mittens to fingerless gloves. If you’d like to try out these gloves, you can save 15% by using promo code TurtleBibRave.
Sunday, February 24
Spinning (30 mins) + Strength Training – Full Body/Chest and Back (30 mins)
I had a great combo workout this morning. I hit a new PR for Peloton spinning and I did a lot of work for my upper body.
How cute is this hat?! I got it from Old Navy.
Total Weekly Mileage: 15 miles
Summary: 3 runs, 2 spinning classes and 4 strength training workouts
Grade This Week – A-
So as you can see, I was a bit of a klutz this week! I’m normally way more coordinated so I don’t know what was wrong with me this week. I usually fall at least once a year while running so hopefully this will be my only fall for 2019. I was really shocked that I don’t have a bruise or any pain – I was REALLY lucky as it could have been a lot worse.
I’m really enjoying adding in more strength workouts, especially after my runs. This is a great way to make sure that I’m reaching my goal of getting in more strength training during the week. The Peloton workouts are great for this because they range from 10-60 minutes so I can pick a class (or classes) based on how much time I have.
That’s it for this week!
Did you have a good week? Have you ever felt like a klutz?
