I’m here! While I can’t figure out what my posting schedule will be going forward (or at least for right now), I am still keeping up with my workout recaps. Maybe I will find my regular blog posting groove again soon, and maybe I won’t. I really have no idea, all I know is that I’m letting it work itself out naturally rather than force it. Maybe I just need a few weeks of writing less to figure out what I actually want to do instead of continuing to do what I’ve always been doing because what I was always doing is no longer what I want to be doing. I think. I don’t really know.
Meanwhile, I am very much still here running and eating pizza.
A few things to note:
It was super hot last week but has now cooled down, only to heat up a bit again this coming week. I hope it doesn’t get into the 90’s with high humidity anymore! I’m over it.
They are doing lots of road work in my neighborhood (resurfacing/repaving) which sort of affects my usual running loop. While I run mostly on the running path in my community, I do weave on and off of it to avoid sprinklers, puddles, and dog walkers, which means I do run on the roads sometimes too. Right now though, that’s a bit of a challenge depending upon where I am and where they are at with the construction. Minor inconvenience though, nothing major.
Monday – 30 Min Pure Barre/Walk
I like the 30 minute Pure Barre workouts because they are quick yet packed with effective exercises that make you feel as though you didn’t even miss out on a longer workout.
Tuesday – 5 Miles
It was hot but it didn’t bother me that much. I guess by now I’m used to it although I’m definitely ready for the cooler temps to see where my pace will fall when I put in some effort.
Wednesday – 6 Miles
Super humid again but I did okay aside from the construction in my neighborhood affecting my typical route. I had to pay attention rather than zone out to music completely because often I would forget that I needed to loop a different way and then realize it once I reached the broken ground, and need to turn around.
Thursday – 45 Min Pure Barre
I’m not really sure if I have ever done this specific 45 minute Pure Barre workout but it was a really good one!
Friday – 5 Miles
Woke up sore from yesterday’s Pure Barre workout! Considering I’ve been doing Pure Barre regularly for over 4 years, it’s always cool to still find myself sore from the workouts! I guess just the slightest changes to the positions and exercises can really make the difference for the muscles.
An easy run and exactly what I needed. The construction in my neighborhood definitely gets in my way but it didn’t matter too much today as I wasn’t looking to run too fast. I had to keep weaving around my usual route so slow was the only way to go.
Saturday – 7.15 Miles (treadmill)
I walked outside to run outdoors but found out it was raining. Oops. Headed to my gym for the treadmill where I ran for an hour, landing me at a total distance of 7.15 miles. I played with inclines (no higher than 4.0) and some speed after a 1 mile warm up and then once I hit 7 miles, cooled down to reach 60 minutes.
Sunday – Pure Barre
Happy New Year to my Jewish friends as Rosh Hashanah begins tonight! Looking to make apple crisp? I once shared this recipe for a lighted up version for Vegan Apple Crisp. 🙂Workouts from the week on the blog today! #running #purebarre @pure_barre #workouts #fitfluential Click To Tweet
How were your workouts last week? Anything exciting to report?
Do you run mostly outdoors or mostly on the treadmill or a good mix of both?
If you celebrate Rosh Hashanah, are you cooking anything for the holiday?
