I’m so upset that I haven’t had time to put together my Friday Favorites posts!
Rather than wait until trying to get my act together for this Friday, I wanted to discuss a few new items that I ordered from Alo Yoga since they pertain to workouts and running.
First, I mentioned recently that I bought the Alosoft Hooded Runner Long Sleeve top. Some mornings have already been cold enough to wear it for running and I’m OBSESSED. In my opinion, this Alo top is much nicer than the lululemon Run Swifty long sleeve top — for the same price.
I almost bought another Run Swiftly while in the mall but once I touched the material, I realized it just isn’t as nice as Alo so instead ordered another Alo Hooded Runner Long Sleeve. The material feels nicer and stretchier, AND it has a hood. It’s very comfortable, so good for layering, or wearing on its own. The only possible downside is that the Alo shirt only comes in black or white. The Run Swiftly tops come in a wider range of colors – but really, who really needs so many colors? I’m honestly happy in black or white.
GOOD NEWS: Use this code for 10% off your first Alo Yoga order (I will receive $25 off my next order when you use this code – it’s a win-win for both of us!)
I’ve linked some of my other Alo Yoga favorites here too in case you are interested.
Workouts From Last Week:
My workouts happened last week but it was a bit of a crazy week. Work was extremely busy, my best friend had a death in her family, and my period arrived on Friday – all things combined led me to an easier schedule of workouts.
Monday – 30 Min Running Workout + 15 Min Cooldown Walk
10 min (warm-up): 5 min easy + 30 seconds hard/30 seconds easy
20 min: 4 rounds of 3 X 2
I brought back my easy run on the treadmill plan as my warm-up and really enjoyed it! It doesn’t matter if you are indoors or outdoors, it’s a great warm-up or workout.
Tuesday – 40 Min Walk + 22 Min Inner/Outer Thighs (resistance band)
Wednesday – 4 Miles (easy)
Thursday – Melissa Wood Health Combo
- 37 Min Yoga with Side of Pilates (bodyweight)
- 7 Min Arms (1 lb weights)
Friday – 3 Miles (easy) + 1 Mile Walk
Saturday – 32 Min Fiery Pilates (resistance band) + 1 Hour Walk
I figured I would walk for 30 minutes but then my friend joined me so we walked for more like an hour while chatting.
Sunday – 5 Miles (easy)
