workout recap (1.16 – 1.22)


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.

    I also thought this was a good week for running and the weather cooperated too! I have been thinking I want to do your negative split workout again soon..I have to remember to try it one of these days!

      we used to love this workout, right? I hadn’t done it in so long so it was nice to bring it back. I hope the weather stays like this!

    You had good week or workouts & running! I think I’m going to try one of your running workouts this week 🙂 Have a good run this morning if you go out!

      definitely give one of the workouts a try and let me know what you think (or if you have questions!)

    Been way to long since I commented!! I was all set to run outside yesterday–got a 1/2 block from my house–it was too cold and windy–so I turned around, came home, and booked a class at Orange Theory. Cold here is like 50—FYI—and cloudy but the wind was killer. Today again it’s cold so planning to do another class! I did have one glorious mid-day run outside this week that I loved. I was a sugar machine this week, so all my candy was the best stuff I ate–Mike and Ikes, TJ’s licorice, the conversation Hershey Kisses. I need a candy detox STAT!! Enjoy your Sunday!!!

      ha – I love what cold means to you down in fl! and you know I love the Hershey’s kisses!

    Single leg bridges never get easier – they are such a hard exercise but in a good way. My non-run days haven’t really been rest days lately – I didn’t run today, but we spent 4 hours snowboarding which wasn’t much rest!
