This week felt so long! That is the opposite of how I usually feel. I have been struggling with my runs the last few weeks but kept pushing through. That’s what we runners do right? Here’s how my Valentine’s Week played out. Joining Wendy and Hoho for the Weekly Wrap.
Monday-30 min Peloton bike + 60 min strength training
So happy to be back on my routine after traveling all of last week. Never miss a Monday!
Tuesday- 4mile run
Woke up to a freezing rain morning ugh. It was one of those days where I really just needed to run despite the weather. I have been a running slump of sorts the last few weeks and this was a tough run. I had to walk a few times to catch my breath. The rest of my crew opted for indoor workouts but I just had to get out there. Not the greatest but got it done.
Wednesday-90 min strength training and kickboxing
Workout Wednesday never disappoints! Today we tried these next level bridges. Had to bring my A game to my balancing skills. I do enjoy finding new ways to up the intensity and keep from getting bored.
Thursday-Valentine’s day run and coffee date 4 miles
The best Valentine’s day runs start and finish at bakeries right?! I was pretty stressed this week with some family stuff and miles with my run squad is always the best therapy. Still took a few walk breaks but got it done. Hubs and I had a nice Valentine’s dinner together complete with vegetarian and non vegetarian lasagna. Both of our favorites.
Friday- 2 mile walk and hot yoga 60 min
We were gifted with a 60 degree day so I had to get out there and take a walk before yoga. Participating in the RunBet has forced me to get in that extra outdoor walk session. If you missed my review on RunBet you can read it here. I am enjoying RunBet so much that I have set up a game starting March 4th. I am hoping a bunch of my friends (in person and online friends) will join me so we can encourage each other. If you are interested in joining us register here on the website and then download the app. Starts March 4th for 4 weeks. Bet for yourself to run/walk 4x a week at 18 mm or less. Perfect for walkers and runners. It will be fun hope you will join me!
Saturday- 6 mile run
One of those mornings where I just wanted to roll over and go back to sleep. So glad I showed up because I had a much better run. Still needed a few walk breaks but making progress. Running slumps are the worst aren’t they?
