Weekly Workouts!

Related Posts Plugin for WordPress, Blogger...

This started out as a ho-hum week on all accounts.
Work was ho-hum (Not complaining!) and I felt unmotivated to do anything once I got home. I went to bed around 7pm most nights.

Then suddenly, during my run on Friday morning, it started snowing. I could see it in the street lights. And I suddenly just felt HAPPY and ALIVE. I'm sure the fact that it was Friday helped. It probably also helped that I was all hopped up on running endorphins.

But nevertheless, that run made me feel great. Hopefully I keep feeling great!

Here are my workouts...

Saturday- 6 neighborhood miles. Nothing to write home about.

Sunday- Lifting upper body (light) at home and glute/core work. I wanted to test my neck/shoulder. It's still feeling weird. Freaking A.

Monday- 6 morning miles. I felt like I was flying but I was actually running my normal, slow pace. Don't you hate when that happens?

Tuesday- 6 miles. My phone died at mile two so I had to run  without my podcasts. I was all alone with my thoughts... I had a doctor appointment that morning, that is why the sun is shining. I ran two hours later than normal!

Wednesday- 6 morning miles. La la la.

Thursday- Light upper body lifting and lots of core/glute stuff. My shoulder/neck felt pretty good but of course I am sticking with light weights and exercises that I don't think will bother it. It actually felt borderline normal by the end of the day, which made me hopeful! I can't wait to lift heavy weights again!

Friday- 6 miles. This was the run that made me feel SO GOOD!

Don't I look like Slender Man in this picture!?

How were your workouts this week?


  1. Glad your shoulder is feeling better! Great job on all the workouts this week, too.

    1. Thanks girl! I am relieved it *appears* to be on the mend!

  2. Seeing snow fall makes me feel happy too. Although I'm good if we don't get anymore snow this season!

    1. I think we are supposed to get a storm early this week!
