Week in Review: February 2-8

I can’t believe it’s already Monday! Crazy! How was your week? My week was pretty solid, as you’ll see . . .

Workouts in Review

Here’s the rundown for the week:

Monday: 20 minutes on the StairMaster, weights, push-ups, crunches, sit-ups, plank

Tuesday: 3.1-mile run, push-ups

Wednesday: 1-hour yoga class, 38 minutes elliptical, push-ups, sit-ups, plank

Thursday: 1-hour pump class, additional weights (biceps, triceps, squats)

Friday: 5-mile run, stretching  (week three of Jeff Galloway’s half marathon training plan)

Saturday: Lots of walking around town/on river path

Sunday: Rest

What I’m Most Proud Of

I found a yoga class I love. It’s a gentle/restorative class, which is perfect to add in during half marathon training. The class is small and the teacher really makes sure you’re doing the poses correctly. Perfect!

Where I Fell Short

I really should have taken Friday easier, which is what I have been doing. It was really hard to run so far the day after pump class. I was really sore and tired. Lesson learned!

Training

My long run went pretty well until the last mile or so. That’s when I really felt how tired I was from the day before. It’s all good now. This week is a cut-back week, so that will be good. I’m only running a 5K on Saturday. I don’t quite know whether I’ll race it or have fun. Oh well.

 Thought for the Week Ahead

If it doesn’t challenge you, it doesn’t change you.

Dig deep and challenge yourself this week!
