Wow this week totally flew by for me! Glad to be back with my favorite bloggers for the Weekly Wrap. I really love having this virtual training log each week of all of my fitness efforts. After my break over the holidays, I was feeling well rested and ready to come at January full force. This week was all about Hitting it Hard.
Weekly Wrap Hitting It Hard
Sunday- 4.25 m run
We were not going to let those sub freezing temps keep us from our January welcome run and breakfast. I’ve pretty much decided that after running in these crazy temps the last week, I can run in anything.
That coffee tasted extra good!
Monday- 30 min elliptical + 60 m Strength training
I was feeling ready to make some changes in my workouts and upped the intensity of my strength training quite a bit this week. Feeling nice and sore all week which is good every now and then.
Tuesday-5 mile run
The sun was shining and it was a glorious 40 degrees! Exhilarating out there today!
Wednesday-90 min strength training/kick boxing +30 min elliptical
Hardest workout day of the week. I now do my cardio in the morning and then see my trainer at noon for a longer strength training workout. I told him that I wanted new and harder things so that ‘s what I got! These wall sits with side raises were killer and my legs were shaking.
Thursday- 4 mile run
Blessed with another warmer weather day, we were ready to goof around a bit mid run. I am “running” out of ideas for original running photos. LOL
Friday-active rest day-45 min low intensity elliptical/stretching
Saturday- 60 min endurance spin class
Our MRTT group has a “spin” off group for those also interested in triathlon training. One of the local studios, Revolve, hosted a class for us. It was fun to meet some new faces and try a new class.
I missed my weekly yoga class and my swim class this week. Could not seem to fit it all in! I am pretty proud of my effort this week and definitely needed a week of hitting it hard. It feels good!
