Last week was a good solid week of workouts but it got really cold in the later half of the week. I am getting to the point where I am over it being cold and dark every time I run in the morning. (And daylight savings time just made it worst again, ick.) But I am thankful to be able to run at all, so I try to keep that in perspective. I GET to CHOOSE to run. 🙂
I am also half way through my 30 days squat and push-up challenge! I can tell it is definitely building my confidence and strength with push-ups.. I’m able to do almost all of the push-ups in BodyPump on my toes now!
Monday 3/6 – 5 miles easy in the AM, GRIT Cardio + 30 minutes BodyFlow in the PM. 85 squats + 17 push-ups.
Tuesday – BodyPump in the AM. 90 squats + 18 push-ups.
Wednesday – 5 miles easy in the AM, GRIT Cardio + CXWORX in the PM. 100 squats + 20 push-ups.
Thursday – BodyPump in the AM. BodyAttack in the PM. 115 squats + 23 push-ups.
Friday – 5.6 miles in the PM. This was a COLD one. I ended up running to my parents house and back to do a quick errand. 125 squats + 25 push-ups.
I really did not want to run today – it snowed last night, it's freezing out and the wind has been gusting all day. I forced myself out there anyhow (in a million layers of clothing) and was treated to a gorgeous sunset, moon and a quiet, tranquil run (since everyone else is smart enough to stay indoors). Despite some super slow miles because I had to walk over ice patches, I feel so awesome now. It's amazing what a run can do for your mental state. 👊🏻 #run #running #training #youvsyou #winter #pawinter #instarun #instarunners #winterrunning #winterrun
Saturday – Rest Day. 135 squats + 27 push-ups.
Sunday – 6 miles + FIGHT class. 140 squats + 28 push-ups. I decided to run to take my friends FIGHT class, and it was three miles each way. It was a nice way to break up the miles!
Total mileage: 20.6
