Weekly Workouts!


Hey, hey, hey!
I vowed to run less this week and I did!
DREAM BIG!
Here's what I was up to...

Saturday- 10 miles on the Conewago Trail. It was a hot, sunny day. Paul walked while I ran. He walks fast. I can run faster than him but he can walk faster than me! I let him use my Garmin because he forgot his.

Sunday- Lifting @ Planet Fitness. This workout was epic. I was there for 2 hours!


Bench Press w/ Smith machine- 2x6x65lb, 2x6x75lb, 1x8x85lb
Chest Press- 5x6x30lb
Band Asst. Wide Grip Pull Ups- 5x6

Capt. Chair- 5x20
Bicycles- 5x40
Stability Ball Knee Tuck- 5x15
Hip/Glute exercises
Stretching
Plank- 10x1 min

Monday- Light upper body, core, and hip/glute stuff at home. There were 33mph winds. There was no way I was going to run in that!



Tuesday- 6 miles in my hood. It wasn't too chilly out, so this was just a nice "la la la" run.


Wednesday- Lifting back @ Planet Fitness. Paul took some video of my band asst pull ups!

Band Asst. Pull Ups- 5x6
Band Asst. Pull Ups (neutral grip)- 5x6

Stab. Ball Knee Tuck- 5x15

Stretching

Thursday- 8 morning miles. I was excited to run, but when I got out there I was slow and creaky. It wasn't that fun. 8:24 pace.



Friday- 6 miles. I felt great on this run! It's weird how I can have two runs in two days and they feel completely different. 8:09 pace.
How were your workouts this week?

  1. Dang, 2 hours at the gym is impressive!!! You kick some butt with the weights! Great picture at the gym too :) I have been slacking at the weights. Been trying some yoga at home and it's making me sore enough.

    1. I am sure if I did yoga I'd use muscles I never knew I had and be really sore!

  2. You really burn it up at the gym girl!
    I did a short run yesterday on the trail and it was a struggle!

    1. Oh no, why a struggle? Sometimes I guess there is just no reason.

  3. Looks awesome! That is a pretty epic gym session for sure. From last Saturday to this Saturday I got in 5 runs and 2 swims -- too chilly to bike outside this week. Now we are in Winter Park so back to back rest days on my agenda.

  4. Nice pull ups! The wind was crazy earlier this week- I didn't run in it either.

    1. I don't blame you! It was actually windy today but not too bad.

  5. Don't blame you not to run in the crazy winds! Always better safe than sorry and it sounds like you still got a good workout in at home. Usually my bad runs follow good runs and so forth. I had a couple of good runs in a row and then got injured so maybe so many days isn't a good thing...

    1. Yes the danger factor of the winds scare me but also the biting cold!

  6. Bad assss!!! Love the pull ups. Your back looks great :)

    I don't like the machine at PF that much, but I need to start using it again.
