Weekly Workouts 2/1-2/7
I love that I have a weekly workout recap now 🙂 Makes my heart (and legs and lungs and body and mind) happy!
Monday: Rest. And plenty of cuddle time with my girl. This was post melt down… hence the watery eyes.
Tuesday: Body Pump. I put Kara in the nursery at the Y for the first time. I go to two YMCA’s and one of them is an Express Y, so it is smaller and the nursery literally looks into the class room. Like, there’s tinted glass you can see through from both sides. I told the lady that this was my first time leaving Kara and she held her up for me to see the whole time. Very reassuring. Hopefully Kara was impressed with my lifting 😉
Wednesday: 6 miles on treadmill @ 8:30 pace. I guess you could call this a “workout.” I just wanted to see if I could run close to what my old easy pace was. I was only going to do 4, but I felt good and baby girl was still sleeping, so I went for 6.
Thursday: Body Pump. I went to an afternoon class, so Todd was able to watch Kara.
Friday: Nuun Year Dash! 5k @ 7:51 pace. This was an inaugural event with Nuun and FitFam to help benefit paraplegic and disabled athletes through Challenge Athletes Foundation. I signed up for it while I was pregnant and wasn’t sure what my running would be like at this point, so I just signed up for the 5k. It provided me a great little reason for some speedwork! This was the fastest overall pace I’ve run since having Kara. She was pretty excited for me 😉
Saturday: Body Pump. After taking 3 classes, I decided to bump up the weight a bit. Gotta get that heart rate up and build that muscle!
Sunday: 10 miles @ 8:49 pace. The weather was cold for FL, so I waited until the afternoon to run. 55 degrees is my perfect running temp and it proved perfect again! After my first two mile splits were under a 9 min pace I decided to try and keep it that way… and I did 🙂 I have the Gasparilla Distance Classic in two weeks (I’m running the half marathon), so I’m bumping up my mileage. Gosh I love running!
I’m linking up with Erin for my weekend snapshot, Katie for MIMM and the weekly wrap! And of course a post wouldn’t be complete without a solo Kara picture. Random, but doesn’t she look like a different baby in each photo?!
