Last Week’s Workouts (One Run + Gentle Yet Effective Workouts)

Well, I really have no clue what day it is today. It’s Monday?  Labor Day? Rosh Hashanah begins at sundown?

Everything is a blur after moving my son into his dorm on Friday!

I only ran once last week. Instead, I filled my workout time with more gentle (yet super effective) workouts like walking, barre, yoga, and pilates. I’m a little sad that I didn’t get to the beach to run over the weekend but it just wasn’t happening.

Oh, this morning is the Labor Day 5-mile race in Long Beach, also known as the first race where I placed second in my age group.

While I’m totally not interested in running a race at the moment, I still look at the trophy from that race every day in my china cabinet. Very proud of myself for this one. 🙂

Monday – 3 Mile Walk + 16 Min Ab-Focused Flow 

Tuesday – 45 Min Barre (3 lb weights)

I can’t remember the last time I did a barre workout. Lifetime has great barre options and I think I like them better than Pure Barre because they involve more compound, dynamic movements.

Wednesday – 25 Min Cardio Warm Up with Full Body Flow + 30 Min Walk

I LOVE it when Melissa Wood Health workouts include a cardio warm-up – short and sweet but so effective.

Thursday – 5 Mile Run

The horrific rain had ended by this morning so I was able to run outside.

Friday – 23 Min Yoga-Focused Flow

I figured a little yoga first thing would help me get ready to move my son into his dorm this morning.

The weather was absolutely PERFECT for moving in today too.

Saturday – 26 Min Inner/Outer Thighs Flow + 4.5 Mile Walk

Sunday – 30 Min Pilates + 4.5 MIle Walk

I didn’t even plan to walk the same distance as yesterday! It just happened. I was on the phone for a lot of the walk and suddenly, I was at 4.5 miles.

Wishing those who celebrate a very happy, healthy, and sweet new year!
