Week in Review: January 26-February 1

Another week has gone by, and I had some pretty solid workouts. I’m seeing some serious progress, and there’s no stopping me! 🙂WIR: 1/26-2/1

Workouts in Review

Here’s the rundown for the week:

Monday: 38 minutes on the StairMaster. Good times.

Tuesday: 1-hour pump class

Wednesday: Run 2.6 miles

Thursday: 1-hour pump class (which included 100 lunges… yikes)

Friday: 15 minutes of yoga/stretching

Saturday: Run 4 miles  (week two of Jeff Galloway’s half marathon training plan)

Sunday: Rest

What I’m Most Proud Of

I added in yoga like I said I would last week. I need to add more, but I’m okay with the effort last week. I’m also stoked I hit two days of pump. I’m addicted. 🙂

Where I Fell Short

I’m not logging everything I ate on here, but I definitely fell short on my eating. I’m working on less sugar and more vegetables this week.


I’m training for a half marathon in May and have started my training plan. I’m following Jeff Galloway’s half plan, which I’m using so I won’t get injured. I’ve run intervals before, but I always did something like run 9 minutes and walk 1 minute. This time, I’m mixing it up, so this weekend for my 4-miler on Saturday, I ran 2:30 and walked 1:30. I don’t think the interval was quite right–I felt my walk interval was too long–so I think for my 5-miler this weekend, I’ll run 2:30 or 3:00 and walk 1:00.

 Thought for the Week Ahead

It’s not about perfect. It’s about effort. And when you bring that effort every single day, that’s where transformation happens. That’s how change occurs.” –Jillian Michaels

Let’s work hard this week! Don’t forget to visit Jesica’s blog and check out her weekly update post and other linked-up posts. I’m also linking up with Tara from Running ‘n’ Reading for her Weekend Update link-up.

  1. Way to go, Whitney!! Woo hoo! What a great training week! I hear ya on the sugar…I’m hooking up with a nutritionist friend who is going to help me make sure I’m getting what I need for training and learning how to give up what I don’t. Fuel is an important part of our training, right? The right kind, that is. 😉 I think training with the Jeff Galloway method is a great move; I have several friends in my women’s running club who follow his plans and they have been very successful. Thank you so much for linking up with the blog this week; hope yours is great and I that you’ll continue to join in!

    1. I really need to meet with a nutritionist. That’s a great idea! I’m looking forward to seeing how I do with the Galloway Method. I’m finding that sometimes I even run faster than I would otherwise–but mostly I’m hoping for an injury-free year! Thanks for hosting the link-up! 🙂

  2. Congrats on a good strong week of training. I think you can alter the plan to whatever run/walk feels right for you. Good luck as you train for your half! I perform so much better when I limit my sugar intake. But, I still like the taste so it’s very hard to do.

    1. Thanks! I’ve never done a whole Galloway plan, so it’s been interesting. I feel better on less sugar, which works for me because I like salty stuff. I do love cupcakes and hot chocolate, though. 🙂
