I Actually Have Workouts to Post :)
I shared with you guys my Running Comeback Plan, which was a loose explanation of my start back into running and my bigger plans. I’m excited to say that I have actually been working toward those goals by incorporating more workout type running. Back before we started this pregnancy journey, I used to post my workouts while I was marathon training. I’m trying to figure out how I’m going to do that now, as I’m not really hard core training, but will be doing more than just easy runs. I just don’t want to bore you, haha. I’m thinking I’ll do a weekly post, like I’m doing today.
Monday- Nada but I had lunch with my sister at Panera 🙂 Asian Sesame Chicken Salad.
Tuesday- Ran 6 miles at an 8:50 pace on the treadmill
Wednesday- Weights at home
Thursday- Ran 4 miles on treadmill: .5m warm up/ .5m @ 8:00 pace/ .25m @ 9:00 / .75m @ 8:00/ .25m @ 9/ 1m @ 8/ .75 cool down, YAY for a mini “speed work” session 😉
Saturday- Body Pump! I missed Body Pump so bad! I kept the weights low and wasn’t too sore come Monday, other than my chest. I can’t wait to build my muscles back!
Sunday- 8 miles That’s right! Momma did her first “long run!” I left Kara at home with Todd and hit the trail. The weather was an overcast 70 degrees and I was worried it would be too hot, but the clouds and slight breeze were nice. I was only planning on doing 6, but I just felt so good and had that runners high, so I kept on going! I started out conservatively and picked up the pace at the end, finishing with a 8:45 min mile. I can’t wait to see these times drop!
The warm weather called for some Nuun! The Watermelon flavor is so good. I’m pretty happy with this weeks worth of workouts. I’m happy to get back to Body Pump, as I’m not a huge fan of lifting weights on my own but know it’s really important. Hopefully this type of post will be a weekly occurrence now 🙂 I’m linking up with Erin for my weekend snapshot, Katie for MIMM and the weekly wrap! And we end on a Kara note…
