Week in Review: February 16-22

This week was crazy! I had stuff going on all week, so it was hard to get some of my workouts in–work, edits for a cookbook I’m coauthor for (more on that soon), etc. How was your week?

Workouts in Review

Here’s the rundown for the week:

Monday: ~30-minute yoga practice with Yoga with Adriene’s 30-Day Challenge (day 2)

Tuesday: 10 minutes StairClimber; 1-hour Pilates; 25-minute treadmill run (intervals); ~25 minute yoga practice with Adriene again (day 3)

Wednesday: 1-hour restorative yoga class, 30-minute treadmill run

Thursday: 1-hour pump class

Friday: Rest (a ton of walking around, running errands, though!)

Saturday: 7.07 miles (Week five of Jeff Galloway’s half marathon training plan. Did an awesome point-to-point route on our local river trail. The plan called for 6.5 miles, so I ran that and then walked the extra half mile home.)

Sunday: Rest


Saturday’s long run was pretty great. I got a little tired, but my fueling and hydrating were on target. (AND that’s the farthest I’ve run in over a year. Sad but true.)

Things to Work On

My long run took place around 1:00 p.m. because I had to work in the morning, which doesn’t normally happen. So, I need to make sure not to overschedule my workload and get out there earlier. Running in the afternoon is not my favorite.

 Thought for the Week Ahead

Be stronger than your excuses.

Let’s be strong and not make excuses this week!

How was your long run?

  1. Looks like a good week of workouts! My long run was on Sunday and it was also in the afternoon. I’m not a fan of afternoon runs either as I was struggling on my run. I’m just glad I got it done! Hopefully my next long run will be in the morning, it just depends on schedules (Hubby’s/kiddos).

  2. Well, I had to do my long run (12 miles) late in the day on Saturday, as well, thanks to some nasty weather; I don’t like running that late, but I was determined to get it done. My favorite post-workout snack is a Picky Bar! I love them! Sounds like you had a very nice training week; keep up the great work! Thanks so much for linking up with the blog and I hope your week is off to a great start.

    1. Way to go getting that done. I hate it when the weather throws everything off. I have to try Picky Bars. I’ve heard good things but haven’t had one yet. Thanks for hosting! 🙂

    1. It’s so hard to run in the afternoons! I normally run in the mornings too, so it was so hard to go out later… That sounds like a great breakfast. I’m a fan of eggs and toast. 🙂

    1. Restorative yoga is the best. I try to go twice a week, and it has really helped out my training. I’ll reveal more about my cookbook soon. 🙂 Thanks for hosting! Have a great week too!
