After many, many hit or miss weeks in November-February (mostly miss), I finally had a good solid week of training. I’ve been saying all along that I wanted to become more serious about training in March, so this is a good prep week for that.
Sunday: 4.8 mile run @ 9:58 on country roads – my longest in awhile and also a good average pace considering we ran in really serious wind.
Tuesday: 2.62 @ 9:46 on a treadmill at the hotel (I was at a conference) – doesn’t sound like a fast pace but I worked my butt off the first 2 miles and then went about 11:00 pace the last .62. After my post about not comparing yourself to others, I feel it’s only fair to disclose that I was mainly motivated by running faster than the guy on the treadmill next to me.
Wednesday – Jillian Michaels’ Ripped in 30, week one (earlier I posted that it was 30 Day Shred but it wasn’t)
Thursday – 3.42 mile run @ 10:40 pace – hoping this was my last single-digit run of the year (it was 1 degree)
Friday - Ripped in 30 week 1
Saturday – 4.94 mile run @ 10:54 pace in a snowstorm – once again, hoping this was my last snowstorm run. We ended up with about 5-6″ I think
Sunday - Ripped in 30 week 1
I know that I posted 8 days, but I just had to brag about getting three strength workouts in in the span of a week. I have to say after only the third time, Ripped in 30 was a lot easier! I only struggled with one move the third time (stupid butterfly chair sit move). This week, I hope to get three workouts in of week 2. It’s a good workout that gets my heart rate up. I also hope I can do a strength video AND run sometimes. I know videos are the only way I’ll ever do strength–no way can I hold the course on my own.
How was your week? What is your favorite workout strength video? I need ideas! We have many free ones on the XBox that I want to try! Insanity, P90X, other Beach Body videos, other Jillian Michaels videos, etc.
