Ran Less + Shorter Pure Barre + Running Shoe Rotation


Not a lot to say in this week’s workout recap! I ran less this week with 3 days instead of my usual 4 and chose Pure Barre two days in a row simply because I didn’t want to ruin my hair with the sweat that happens from cardio vs. a strength workout. 🙂

Monday – 5 Miles (treadmill)

I went with the treadmill for today because there was a weather advisory already issued for the hot and humid conditions.

While running I came up with a fun progression-style treadmill workout and hope to share soon!


Tuesday – 5 Miles (outside)

It was still hot and humid but the sun wasn’t too bright yet so I opted outside. It felt like running through soup but I did ok as I was just looking to run easy.


I even remembered to get back to my running shoe rotation and wore my Saucony Rides! They are so super comfortable. 🙂

Wednesday – 30 Min Pure Barre

I had energy but a very short attention span for a work out. This is why I love Pure Barre On Demand — there are so many options to meet my needs on any give day! I chose a 30 minute Pure Barre workout in place of a longer workout and I was very happy. Sometimes the shorter workouts are a little more intense and include less stretching segments so you feel like you are putting in the same amount of effort as a longer routine, just in less time.

Thursday – 45 Min Pure Barre

Another new to me Pure Barre workout! It was such a good one too!

Friday – OFF

Saturday – 7 Miles

It was a damp, misty morning. Not hot, not exactly cool – somewhere in between.

I was on the phone for the first few miles and then just settled in to zoning out for the hour while listening to music.

Sunday – Pure Barre

    Thank you for the reminder. I also need to get back to my running shoe running. I have been neglecting most of them.

    I am thinking I should have run yesterday instead of today. It was supposed to rain so I figured I would switch things around, but this morning was so hot and humid, plus the sun was out in full force! I feel like all my runs outside have had to be at an easy pace lately in the heat.
