Week In Workouts Plus 5K!


You may have seen on Instagram that I ran a local 5K race yesterday morning! I will have a full recap on the blog tomorrow but in the meantime, let’s look at the rest of the week in workouts. I would have actually liked to run more than I did but some weeks are just off weeks. Between feeling rushed one day, not being in the mood another, and a dead legged morning, it just happens. I’m hoping this week is better!

Monday – 6 Miles/Pure Barre

With the sun rising so late, I combined two 5 minute Pure Barre workouts before heading out the door. This run turned into an easy 6 miles because I ended up on chatting on the phone almost the entire time.

Tuesday – Gym Day/30 Min Pure Barre

Bleh. The weather was icky outside, the gym was overly warm as if someone left the heat on, and my mood was one of disinterest.

I started on the treadmill, made it a mile before switching to the elliptical. After 30 minutes total of cardio, I went home for a 30 minute Pure Barre On Demand workout.

Wednesday – 7 Miles

Not much to say here other than it was a decent run, mostly easy, with some bursts of speed randomly thrown in.

Thursday – 3 Miles/15 Min Pure Barre

I don’t know what the problem was today but my legs were feeling more dead than I have felt in a really long time! There was no sense in pushing it so I managed my way through 3 miles right under 30 minutes and then went home for Pure Barre.

Friday – 3.55 Miles

I was in a bit of a rush this morning which I hate but it happens! Ugh. Hopefully next week I don’t have mornings where I am this rushed because it’s not a great way to start the day.

Saturday – 5K!!

After running a few miles as a warm up, this was my third ever 5K, first ever local Long Island 5K and I placed second in my age for gender.


The cool part is that the age group was 30-39 and I was the oldest in the top four finishers. I would have been first for age had it been the usual 35-39! I should run more local races. HA.

I will have a full recap up tomorrow.

Sunday – New Pure Barre workout

As I mentioned in my  Pure Barre On Demand review, every Friday I receive an email letting me know about a new workout available. I’m excited to try this new 45 minute Pure Barre workout!
