Weekly Workouts!

Solid week!

Saturday- 6 miles on the AT. I was still feeling sick but I really wanted to get out on the trail. I knew it would be beautiful due to the snow we got on Thursday night, and as always, the AT didn't disappoint!

 Sick, not high.

Sunday- 6 miles on the treadmill. I had an AWESOME progression run. I started at 6.5 on the treadmill (9:13 pace) and bumped it up one notch every quarter mile until I reached 5.5 miles. That got me to a 6:53 pace! Then I spent a half mile cooling down. It was a great workout but it wasn't super hard. My heart rate didn't get above 140, so that is good!

Monday- 4 mile progression run and lifting. I ended at a 6:22 pace. I'm getting fast again. It's about damn time!

Tuesday- 8 treadmill miles. You guys, I am a TREADMILL RUNNING MACHINE!!!!

Wednesday- 6 treadmill miles. My legs were actually pretty tired. I'm definitely lifting tomorrow.

Thursday- Lifting! No leg work. Trying to be good. :)

Friday-  2 treadmill miles and a circuit. 1000 jump ropes, 100 burpees, 100 mountain climbers, 200 bicycle crunches, 100 kettle bell swings (my ass hurts!) and 100 stability ball pull ins!!!

How were your workouts this week?


  1. So speedy! I left my speed back in my early 30's but I am OK with that. Just happy to be out there getting my slow miles in. This week I ran 10 miles, walked 5 miles, rowed 5 miles, swam 1.1 mile and hit the weights 4 x and did 2 yoga sessions. Felt great. Ready for warmer weather because cold makes me feel really stiff!

    1. I've been such a wimp and running in the gym! It is helping my speed a lot though and I think running at my more "normal" pace is actually helping my back! I'm going to email my PT about it.
