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!

    Thats awesome that you placed 2nd in the race for your age group! Today is going to be an active rest day, so probably some yoga to help stretch everything out because this weeks workouts were amazing but tough!
