Workout Recap (4.17.17 – 4.23.17)


This week was a bit of a blur but I do know that all of my workouts were decent! I was able to run outside every day and the early sunrises are making my running life that much more enjoyable.

workout recap

Monday – 3.1 Miles/Strength

My legs were a little tired and heavy so at the 3 mile mark I made the decision to cut my run short. I went with my own strength routine while watching the news.

Tuesday – 7.11 Miles

I ran a modified version of my negative split workout since I didn’t have time for 8 miles.

In case you missed it, I shared my Not Your Average Runner post today too.

Wednesday – Pure Barre Tone in 10/3.5 Miles

Pure Barre Tone in 10 Combo:

  • Arms & Abs
  • Seat & Abs

It’s amazing how only 3 miles can feel so long on the easy, shorter run days!

Thursday – 7.50 Miles

Today’s run was great. The weather was overcast, 50 degrees and drizzly. It was perfect! From the start I was full of energy and then at 4 miles, I decided to do .50 mile fast/.50 easy. I really could have kept going but I had to get home to start the day.

Friday – 3.50 Miles/Pure Barre

I made it outside for a quick run before the rain started and then came home for a Pure Barre Mile High DVD. I’m pretty sure I always say this but the Pure Barre Mile High Series really is the best. 35 minutes, targets every area and the thigh work is always killer. I do SO MANY different at-home Pure Barre workouts and I always come back to saying that Mile High just kills the thighs with its simple poses.

Saturday – 12 Miles

Just a routine long run before getting my son off to his hockey game.

Sunday – Pure Barre

    Today is absolutely a rest day (from running!) … Heading to the pool in a little.
    I ran 17 miles on Thursday, swam Friday, 14 on Saturday, and 11 yesterday. I am TIRED and my legs need a break!

    Best thing I ate over the weekend – The brownies I made for myself for my birthday 🙂 Topped them with cream cheese frosting and they were SO good!

      barre is totally intense but I love it! it’s a different intense than cardio intense and even from weight lifting intense. if I can help you find online workouts or DVD’s, just let me know!

    I was so excited to see the sun come up as I ran last week!

    I went to Napa with friends last weekend and I would have to say it’s a toss up between affogato (ice cream with espresso poured over it) or mango ginger cheese.

    I am doing a run streak, so even though I feel like poop, I ran 1 mile on the treadmill this morning. Boo.
