Why I Couldn’t Run Last Week (weekly workout recap)

In my post on Friday, I mentioned that I had a tough week at work.

Like really tough.

As the Director of Marketing, I have been with my company (an event tech startup) since the very beginning. If you have been reading my blog since 2013, you may recall a series of wedding-related planning posts that were sponsored by the company before I even got on board full-time.

So for somewhere between 8-9 years, I devoted my time, passion, and energy to helping build that company into what it is today. And I’m really proud of that.

We were a family. And a lot of that family, including myself, are now moving on.

What’s next? I definitely need some time to breathe in order to figure that out.

While another job in event tech is not of interest, I do love the pretty wedding side of things so I’m sure I will stay in the industry in some capacity.

Last Week’s Workouts

Last week was very hard emotionally which affected my workouts.

When I’m dealing with something emotional, I actually can’t run. I can do other things but running is just a no. Not only am I not in the mood, but the energy required to run is a different type of energy and one I don’t have when I’m upset.

If we look at the positive side, I gave myself a really nice break from running.

Also! I took advantage of the class schedule at Equinox at times I can’t normally attend because of my work schedule!

Like Bala Bangle Barre Burn. Quite a tongue twister, but I was excited to try that class!

And the Spin class I took on Tuesday? That class was 80’s music trivia themed and I won a few prizes!

Monday – Outdoor Walk

I had already decided that I needed a day off and took a walk before knowing what my week was about to look like.

Tuesday – 45 Min Spin

Wednesday – One Hour Bala Bangle Barre Burn (2 lb weights + ankle weights)

I really enjoyed taking this class for the first time. It’s similar to the other barre classes only you wear the Bala bangle ankle weights the entire time (but you can take them off if you want at any point).

Thursday – 45 Min Spin

Friday – 45 Min Pilates (ring)

Saturday – 45 Min Spin

I ran like five minutes on the treadmill to realize that yes I’m ready to run but no, I don’t think I want to run more than this right now and can wait until Monday. I walked a bit before spin class.

Sunday – 45 Min Precision Walk Elevate + 45 Min Pilates

This week I’m hoping to try a few more classes at Equinox that I can’t normally make due to my work schedule including Pilates Fusion, a few other spin classes at other times, a different barre class, and maybe yoga if I can fit it in!

And to be really honest, with all of these classes, I don’t miss running but I’m sure I will throw in a few miles at some point.
