Running was great this week! Let’s take a look…
Monday – 8 Miles
Since my son was off from school, I was able to run a little later and a little longer in the morning. I haven’t run with a workout in mind in a while so I went with my favorite 8 mile negative split workout. I missed this workout!
Tuesday – In The Gym (5 Miles)
I really liked today’s workout! It was another one of my break up the treadmill miles with some strength work thrown in the mix.
2 miles < – warm up (easy run workout plan)
.5 mile < – fast (7.6)
free weights (upper body)
2 miles < – fast (between 7.4 – 7.7)
.5 mile < – easy (6.8 -7.0)
squats, lunges and jumping jacks
Wednesday – Pure Barre/5 Miles
I did a quick Pure Barre Tone in 10 workout (full body) before heading to the gym for 5 miles on the treadmill.
2 mile warm up < – easy run on treadmill workout plan
2 miles fast < – started at 7.0 went up to 7.7 (held mostly between 7.5 – 7.7)
1 mile easy < – 6.8 -7.0
Just real quick about the Pure Barre full body workout: it’s amazing how in 10 minutes, you can target the entire body! Ab work, planks, push ups, seat, thighs and arms are all worked real good in a real short amount of time.
Thursday – 7 Miles
I was able to get outside today for my run which was a nice change of pace from two days in a row on the treadmill. With no plans for distance or pace, I just sort of ran until I didn’t want to anymore which brought me to a little over 7 miles.
Friday – Pure Barre
My son had an early morning doctor appointment before school so I skipped my run on the treadmill in favor of doing a Pure Barre workout instead before we left.
I normally do the Pure Barre Pure Results (focus on thighs) workout on Sunday mornings because it’s 55 minutes but it’s nice to mix it up once in a while and do it during the week. My review of this Pure Barre workout is here if you missed it.
I am getting so much better at these one-legged bridges at the end of the workout, that’s for sure. It’s never an easy exercise but at the end of 55 minutes of Pure Barre? Can be killer!
Saturday – 13 Miles
Things started out a little slower than my normal warm up mile but then picked up nicely until mile 7 when I decided I was tired. Mentally I was awake but my legs were feeling fatigued so I slowed things down to continue my way to 13 miles.
Time on my feet, that was really all I was looking for I think!
Here’s a screenshot from part of the run (since I can’t fit the entire run on my screen). The second half of my run probably averaged around 9:10.
Sunday – Easy Run
Since I didn’t run n Friday, I figure I will run a few easy miles this morning.workouts from the week! #running #purebarre #treadmill #workouts #fitfluential Click To Tweet
