I did not get all my runs in this week :( Sadly I did something to my back during Yoga yesterday and I hurt too bad to run today. So I will try again next week. Luckily I somehow have two extra weeks in my half marathon training plan. It’s all good.
Everyone came over for the big party today. It was really nice but the race never got going. Stupid rain. That will not stop us from having fun. Last week I registered for a Mud Run here in the twin cities area. The Go Commando race. I am running it with my sisters and mom. So we hashed out some details today :) So excited for that! We are making T shirts but we need a team name. Any ideas? I am leaning towards “The Dirty Divas.”
We also decided that I am going to quit one of my jobs this week. The daycare is going bye bye. i love my co workers and the children but my boss is crazy. My sanity is not worth the little money I make there. I am going to look for another part time job. I hope something comes up but if not we will be just fine. I have more time to go workout this week since my “awesome” boss gave me six hours of work this week. So that is kinda nice. Enough rambling about random random. Here is what I hope to accomplish this week.
Tuesday: 3 miles and BodyPump
Thursday: 4 or 5 miles
Saturday: 3 miles and BodyFlow
Sunday: Rest Day
As always this is subject to change. As of right now I am supposed to go to an in service for the daycare. But I am hoping that once I quit I will not have to go.
Have a great week!
I had a pretty good week full of workouts except for a couple of my runs. But that is completely understandable because my legs were sore from Saturday’s Half Marathon.
Monday: Zumba. I love this Monday night Zumba class. I love the people that go to the class and I love the Instructor. I wish she taught Zumba on other nights.
Tuesday. 3 Miles. I wanted to run for three miles but my legs just were not feeling it. So I walked for a mile, ran for a mile and went 1.5 miles on the elliptical. It was a nice cardio workout.
Wednesday. BodyPump. It was my first BodyPump class and I loved it. I felt like I got a great srength workout in. I was so sore after the class but that is to be expected.
Thursday: 3 Miles. I stuck to the elliptical again. I did not want to push my body before it was ready.
Friday: Rest Day.
Saturday: AquaZumba. It was a good class. I was the youngest person there by 25 years but I did not mind. There was also a couple of grouchy old lady’s in that class. But that did not stop me from dancing my happy little heart away! It was nice work out. I wanted to get something in that was not too hard on my body in preparation for the next days run.
Sunday. 5 Miles. I orginally wanted to do this outside but it was super windy. Like 40 mile an hr gusts. So I stuck to the treadmill. Around mile 2 the battery on my Garmin died:[ Up until that point I was keeping it at just under a 10 minute pace. So I just kept going with that pace for 50 minutes. And I believe I got my 5 miles in.
All in all it was a good week for me exercise wise. I am looking forward to next week when I incorparote more BodyPump and I run a local 5k. It will be right here in my hometown. I have never ran a race here. It would be nice if I could meet some local folk :] I will post more on those plans hopefully tomorrow.
I hope everyone else had a good week exercise wise!
So last week I enjoyed my free week at the gym to the fullest. I went to Zumba, BodyFlow and BodyStep. I have to say Zumba was my favorite class. BodyStep was good but boy was it hard to keep up. It was a good workout and my calves are still sore today and I took the class on Friday morning. There was something about BodyFlow that I was not too fond of but I am not sure what that is.
I looked just like that ;] haha. I joined the gym on Friday! Super excited about that. I am really looking to add some strength in my workouts in 2 weeks in the form of BodyPump.
On Tuesday, I ran 3 miles, Thursday was 3.4 miles and this morning I ran 3. They were all pretty good runs. I was supposed to run 5 today but I was visiting my parents, it started to rain and it was cold. So I called it good with 3. I am completely okay with this. It just feels really good to get my workouts in.
I need to do that again this week because Saturday is my first half marathon!
I am not sure that is a word but whatever I am going with it :]
I am going to join the gym this next week. But I get this week free to try out first. I am really excited. I think it will be nice to have over the winter. As it gets cold and hard for me to get outside as much as I have been. Anywho, I am looking to try out some classes so say a Prayer for me because I just may need it. This is what I am thinking about doing.
Monday: Zumba- Super excited about this one but kinda nervous. I do not have much dancing skills but it should be a fun way to get moving, hopefully.
Tuesday: 3 Mile Run
Wednesday: BodyFlow Class
Thursday: 3 Mile Run
Friday: BodyStep Class
Saturday: Rest Day
Sunday: 5 Mile Run
I want to try some strength classes but I am nervous that I will get too sore and not be able to get all my runs in. I am looking forward to my half marathon being over and being able to concentrate a little more on strength. I will still be running and all. I will just be able to relax more if I miss a run.
