Workout Recap (9.17.18 – 9.23.18)


I say this so often but it’s worth mentioning again that if I didn’t track my workouts for these workout recap blog posts, I would NEVER remember what I’ve done. Like for example, I had completely forgotten that I ran 6.2 miles on Monday. If you would have asked me, I would have guessed that maybe I ran 5 while recalling nothing specific about it!

Not that it really matters much regardless. I’m not training for anything (I’ve only ever trained for one race – my last half in 2016) and I’m not focused at all on hitting a specific distance or pace or anything like that. I just do something almost every morning. It’s either a run morning or a Pure Barre morning. That’s about all there is to my workout routine, but it still counts as a routine!

In fact, I’m so routine that when I didn’t work out at all Friday morning, I had to be conscious enough to remember to brush my teeth. I’m not even kidding! I’m so routine with my mornings that not getting ready to exercise left me a little confused as to when to brush my teeth. Regular people may find that weird but not morning runners, you understand. Right?

Monday – 6.2 Miles/5 Min Pure Barre

It wasn’t raining and the humidity felt lower than its been so today’s run was great! I’m still navigating around road work in my area but I did a good enough job of doing so as I was able to push my pace without too much interruption.

Quick 5 minute Pure Barre workout for seat when I got home because I still had some time before getting my day started.

6.2 miles

Tuesday – 45 Min Pure Barre

Wednesday – 5.5 Miles

Still dealing with the road work but it’s getting better. I felt a little sluggish but picked up my pace when I spotted another runner in my neighborhood on the path. This is probably the only time I have a competitive side — I can’t let people in my neighborhood pass me while running! I lost the man very quickly and never saw him again. 🙂

5 miles

Thursday – 4 Miles/Walk/5 Min Pure Barre

I ran 4 miles and then felt like stopping, so I did. But I had time and it was decently nice out (as in, not raining) so I walked for maybe 30 minutes. Quick 5 minute Pure Barre for thighs before hopping in the shower!

4 miles

Friday – Nothing

It’s not like I rested so I won’t call this a rest day. I just didn’t run or walk or do Pure Barre.

Saturday – 5 Miles/Walk

My splits appear slower than usual for me but that’s mostly likely because I added speed intervals at random times (fartleks I guess) so my assumption is that my easy sections were really easy, giving us not a great indicator here for effort if all we do is look at a split pace. It’s actually evident in the final split listed, that must have been my pace when I hit 5 miles. I’m not overly technical about tracking my pace and splits (I use Runkeeper) — I think this gives me more than enough information.

I didn’t feel like running more than 5 miles but ended up walking for a while, maybe 2 miles? Not sure.

5 miles

Sunday – Pure Barre

    If I didn’t have my workouts on my Garmin and pictures on Instagram I would never remember what I did each day. A few weeks ago my routine was thrown off and I ended up locking myself out of the house without my keys! (I usually put them in my bag when I leave for work). I definitely rely on my morning routine otherwise I feel so thrown off.

    On my rest days, I usually end up working on the sofa in sweatpants until mid-morning, since my normal routine is to shower, get dressed, and settle into my desk after a run.

    I’m routine with stuff too! This morning, I let my dog out then ate breakfast before I finally realized I hadn’t brushed my teeth. All because I’m house sitting for my boyfriend’s parents so I’m slightly off with everything.
