Thanks for joining Kim and me for the weekly run down today. This was a special week around here. Now that we have entered phase 2 here in Northern Virginia, it’s the return of running friends.Yes, I have had the biggest smile on my face all week long. Like many of you, I took for granted to pure freedom of socializing and running with my friends. I could not have been happier to see my running friends in person this week. Here’s my Weekly Run Down:
Return of Running Friends
Monday- 45 min Peloton cycle + 20 min strength + 10 min core + afternoon swim
Tuesday-4.6 mile run + 10 min chest/back + 10 min core class + 3 hours of TRX training class
The return of running friends. Went on a lovely and very chit chatty run with one of my besties. We even grabbed a juice together post run and sat outside together. It felt so normal! I then hopped into a 2 day TRX certification training class. Back in March, I noticed they were offering them for free so I figured why not!
Wednesday-25 min Peloton cycle + arms strength class + core class + TRX training
Second day of TRX training. I forgot what a great workout it can be and I learned so much about how to control the intensity. Admittedly, I was surprised by how sore I was from the day before. I am looking forward to diving into to these workouts a bit more to mix things up. Side note, I used to teach group ex classes about 10 years ago. While I am not planning on teaching or training again, it was still fun to take the class.
Thursday-2.5 mile run + 10 min core strength
One of those days where the weather app was just wrong! It kept showing morning storms that never materialized so I figured, what the heck and headed out. About a mile into my run, I encountered a torrential downpour. Cut it short and headed home. It was honestly comical how wet I was. Just gotta laugh at yourself sometime. Of course, it was sunny the rest of the day!
Friday- 18 mile bike ride + 10 min core class
When your running friends are also your biking friends. A double dose! A beautiful day for a ride and a chat.
Saturday- 6 mile run + 10 min core
More running friends! Not only was this my longest run in a while, it was fantastic to be back out there with 2 of my MRTT crew.
