Weekly Workouts!

Hey, did I ever tell you that my hips have felt GREAT ever since I got that free massage after the Chobot 15k on my birthday!? It's amazing!

Saturday- 10 neighborhood miles. It was hot and I took a two a/c breaks. But I got 'er done! I also tried a new tip from Erica @ Erica Finds. I put a wet headband in my freezer and switched it out during my a/c breaks. It felt so good on my forehead!

Sunday- Lifting @ Planet Fitness. I wrote a post about the exercises I've been doing lately.

Monday- 6 scorching miles. I went out early, but DANG it was hot! Then I went to Zumba later that night. I accidentally went to a "muscle madness" class and the instructor warned us there would be a ton of squats. UH OH! I can't do squats unless I want my ITB to feel like it's on fire. Luckily, the instructor told us that instead of squats, we could lift our knees to our stomach and do a knee tuck. I did loooooots of knee tucks.

Tuesday- 6 more miles. I'm not sore from Zumba, which is kind of crazy.

Wednesday- 8 afternoon miles. I was trying to decide whether to run before my piano lessons or after. I decided to go after so I could take my time and run longer if I felt good. It was really hot, so I took one a/c break.

Thursday- 6 hometown miles. Paul and I spent the day in my hometown of Millersburg. The day started with Paul hiking at the Ned Smith Center and me going for a run. I ran the rail trail into town and then looped down to the river.

  1. Wow, girl...great workouts! And that deck of cards workout...there are no words! Awesome job, my friend. Of course my week was 3 days of running & walking, 2 days of cycling and 2 days of swimming! 4 weight training sessions. I am really boring because most weeks this is what my training looks like!
