Friends, we’re up to Body Back week 4. This past week, I fit in 2 of my 3 at home workouts (missing my core workout….FAIL), getting in 2 runs for a total of 8.5 miles for the week, and 3 solid HIIT/total body workouts – 2 of those being my weekly body back classes. I’m feeling stronger, faster, and definitely better. Shit’s certainly fitting me better which is a nice change of pace even though I’m down only ~ 3 lbs (remember, muscle weighs more than fat).
The heat and little man’s bed time challenges affected me the most this week, but my workouts looked like: monday – run; Tuesday/Thursday Body Back; Saturday – run; Sunday – total body.
Wednesday and Friday were off days – unintentionally but Friday I got to catch up with a gal pal and her new baby so that was entirely worth it because sometimes you just need some girl time.
This is week is a little more challenging workout wise, especially with my running, since Hubs has drill this weekend and it’s hotter than eff outside all week. We all know I’m not a morning runner, so challenges abound on that front. We’ve also been working on an earlier bedtime for little man – which certainly helped Monday’s run happen – but when it’s still 85 degrees at 8pm, my runs are often effed before I even get out the door.
Run 3.5 (Done)
Body Back (Done)
Wednesday – Run 3 OR Total Body (depending on when Hubs gets back from our community organization meeting)
Thursday – Body Back
Friday – Run 3-4
Saturday – TB OR Run 7
Sunday – Core & Legs
I am SUPER jazzed btw! I signed up for the Fit4Mom Severn Run Club that starts up in August! My coach & Body Back instructor asked what my goals were and I went big, hairy, audacious goal (BHAG – bringing it back from my lululemon days!): I WILL hit a sub 1 hour 10k by the end of the year. Maybe it’s the group race, maybe it’s my relay leg for the Baltimore marathon relay or maybe I sign up for the Across the Bay 10k as a last ditch effort but that’s my goal.
I think it can be done. Especially if I’m not running in swamp like conditions for 2/3 of my training.
What’s your big hairy audacious goal? Any fun workouts this week friends?
