So we’re into Body Back week 3 – I’ve done okay with my workouts, though last week I only got in one day of running, One Body Back class (Tuesday night was canceled because of the 4th), 1 core workout, and two total body workouts. Not the mileage I should be at (I really need to get to three running days and 1 biking day) but in general, I feel stronger.
Here are my workouts for the week:
Monday – Run 3
Tuesday – Body Back class
Wednesday – Run & Core video
Thursday – Body Back class
Friday – Total Body Workout
Saturday – Run 5
Sunday – Either Bike 12 OR pop down to Annapolis for an Annapolis Fit 4 Mom Body Back workout on the beach. I can never say no to a beach workout.
As for eating last week? Ugh, I totally torpedo’ed my weekend food and drink-wise. I mean, I guess I could have eaten worse in Boston when my sister and I were there for a concert, but I certainly didn’t make GREAT choices – especially at the show (I didn’t really need that glass of wine – but after getting down poured on…I made a bad decision). Upon getting home Sunday, I was so exhausted (early flights and a bad’s night sleep) that I just kind of forgot to eat really? We didn’t have a solid lunch and dinner was late and no snacks.
I’m doubling down for the remaining 6 weeks of this to really hit my goal to be OUT of the 150’s by the end of this and to run a sub 2-hour race at the Annapolis ten miler. My long runs are going to be dicey since 4 out of the next 7 weekends (the race is on the 7th weekend) we have either drill weekend (solo parenting ftw!), a trip (we have a trip to CT planned in August) and the weekend right before the race is Iron Girl so no, I probably won’t run 9 miles the day before doing a hilly 16 mile bike ride. #justsaying.
I’ll hit 6 this weekend, probably 5 next (likely treadmilling it), 7.5 the week after, 5 the following (treadmill), 8.5 in CT and then 6 before Iron Girl. It’s not the ideal training plan but summer training is hard man.
Anyhow, all told, I definitely feel stronger, especially during my runs. Last night I ran after dinner while hubs put E to bed and though I’m still relying on my 4 and 1 intervals (partly because I’m still breaking in my sneaks) I feel stronger when I run so there’s that and really, stronger is the goal 🙂
How are you getting your sweat on this week?
