There was lots of running and workouts this week! I am thoroughly enjoying my Winter Break and having more flexibility with when I workout!
Saturday- Zumba, a deck of cards workout, and 1 neighborhood mile. I tend to get exercise ADD on days I go to Zumba. While the Zumba class was super fun, I barely broke a sweat! I think all my deck of cards workouts and speed work on the treadmill are getting me in better shape.
Sunday- 3 treadmill miles (speed work), a deck of cards workout and 4 miles on the AT. I know, that all seems a bit random, right!? The speed work and deck of cards was done in the morning.
After a family party, I squeezed in some trail miles before it got dark!I will admit, I did this because I felt "fat". Feeling "fat' is not a good reason to go for a run, but it was my reason that evening.
Monday- 7 treadmill miles. It felt great to feel the burn before a day of eating yummy Christmas Eve food!
Tuesday- 6 Christmas neighborhood miles. At 8 o'clock on the dot, a church in my neighborhood started blasting the Star Spangled Banner. I wonder, do they do that every morning at 8 or only on Christmas!?
Wednesday- 4 treadmill miles and lifting at Planet Fitness. I really hope all these treadmill miles make me faster! Not that I am training for anything, it would just be fun to see my "la la la" pace increase.
Thursday- 8 miles on the AT with Allison. We started at Trindle and just did 4 miles out and back. The miles FLY by when I am with Allison because we just jibber jabber the whole time! I'm so glad I met her through a mutual friend and that our paces/schedules align so that we can run together!
Friday- Lifting at PF. I was super tired from no sleep the night before. I wasn't in the mood to push myself.
