New Cold Stone Creation Plus Workout Recap


My Cold Stone creation from last night has nothing to do with my workouts but it’s a holiday weekend so we can do things differently today. 🙂

I created a new personal Cold Stone creation which if you know me, is crazy! I’m a creature of habit and will order the same Cold Stone combination FOR YEARS. But not this time!

This time, I wanted m&m’s, Reeses Pieces, chocolate chips, fudge and whipped cream mixed in to the French vanilla yogurt. I will definitely do this combination again and yes, it felt nice to order something different!

Okay, time to talk running and Pure Barre from the week…

Monday – 60 Minutes Running (6.5 Miles)

It was a beautiful morning with a chill in the air. I just ran for an hour listening to music without really thinking about the fact that I was running.

Tuesday – 5 Miles/Pure Barre

3 miles turned into 5 miles followed by Pure Barre. I combined three different 5 minute Pure Barre workouts: arms, abs and seat.

Wednesday – Pure Barre/3 Miles Treadmill

My morning began with a 35 minute Pure Barre workout. After Pure Barre, I wanted to run 3 miles quickly so I headed to the treadmill with a goal of 3 miles in 25 minutes. I finished in something like 24:45 which felt great.

Sometimes I really do like the treadmill and find it really perfect for running fast. I didn’t do much of a warmup but after starting fairly easy, I settled into 7.5 during the second mile and then finished the last mile holding 8.0 – 8.1.

Thursday – 8 Miles

I started out with underwear issues which sent me home within half a mile to change. Whichever pair I was wearing was just not cooperating in terms of placement, let’s just leave it at that.

Once I made the switch, I felt better and ran 8 miles which totally flew by. Like I don’t even know what to say about this run because I don’t know where it went.

Friday – 5 Miles/Pure Barre

It was beautiful this morning! In the 50’s and sunny. It felt so nice so I leisurely ran 5 miles before coming home for a quick Pure Barre workout.

Tone in 10 Workout: Seat & Abs plus a 5 Minute Thighs workout. I love combining the shorter Pure Barre workouts!

Saturday – 11 Miles

When I spoke to my dad later in the morning, he asked me how my long run was. I paused (and he said sarcastically – here we go – because he knows sometimes I can end up chewing his ear off with little details no one actually cares about) but I didn’t have much to say.

How WAS my long run? It was fine? I think that because I have zero expectations lately during just about all of my runs, I don’t have much to say. No complaints, no little details to report. I just run where I am comfortable 99.9% of the time which really leaves me with not much to say other than “my run was good.”

Sunday – Pure Barre

I swear I am getting around to reviewing the new Pure Barre On Demand! It’s on my list. One of the features I love about Pure Barre On Demand is that they are always adding new workouts. And, when they add a new workout, I receive an email like this one from Friday.

Pure Barre On Demand

You can be sure this is the Pure Barre workout I will try this morning!

Enjoy the rest of your weekend. 🙂

    It’s been so long since I’ve been to Cold Stone, but M&Ms were one of my favorite mix-ins also. I am so picky about underwear for runs! I can only wear certain pairs.

    I just went to Cold Stone and I haven’t been in years. I ordered a chocolate and peanut concoction and it was wonderful!

    I don’t usually wear underwear with my running shorts, just my tights and I only have certain ones that I’ll wear. I once chafed on a super long/hot run so I have definitely changed things around after that!

    Today was 4 mi on the treadmill and then 10 planned with the hubs and a friend but they ditched me and I finished the last 3 solo, which is fine because it gave me some good reflecting/prayer time by myself.

    I love running where I’m comfortable 99% of the time too, and it’s so nice to come back from a run and feel adequately exercised but not overly exhausted. 🙂

    And you make SUCH amazing Coldstone mixes. 🙂 They have delicious ice cream.

    Sounds like this week was awesome fitness-wise. I feel like the workouts that feel effortless but also result in a rush of endorphins are the best ones. Also that Cold Stone creation sounds DIVINE! Don’t they have some contest for combos? You should def submit! 😉

    That’s a cold stone combination I can totally get down with. Yum.
