Weekly Workouts [week 269]
Week One of LIIFT4 is DONE—I am really happy with my decision to go back to Beachbody so far!!!! I know I need to up my weights some more, so I might start heading back to the gym in the mornings when I need to get to that point soon.
ALSO!!!! Yesterday I ran my 12th half marathon, the Detroit Free Press International Half, and it was GREAT!!!!! I’ll post more about it later this week!
Monday, 10.15: Week 1, Day 1: Chest+Triceps (50/50)—I am back to Beachbody and I remember why I love it! Today was really easy, though. Almost too easy with my weights. I need to up my weights for sure. And then I went to my weekly Fit Barre class which truly kicked my butt—we used a new band and my legs were shaking all night!!!
Tuesday, 10.16: Week 1, Day 2: Back+Biceps (Circuit)—After last night, I wasn’t sure how I’d feel today. I am sore, but it’s a good sore that I haven’t felt in a LONG time!! Makes me realize that I just wasn’t pushing myself like I used to before. This morning I used my 10lb. weights which was really good! It was a gorgeous sunny cool fall day, so after work I ran my 3.08 miles outside instead of at the gym, and I am SO HAPPY that I did that!!! Finished in 34:59 and I felt really great!!!
Wednesday, 10.17: Recovery day—it was so great to just rest today. I didn’t do anything before work, but when I got home I went to the gym and ran 2 miles on the treadmill in 21:20 WITHOUT WALKING!!! I felt really great :)
Thursday, 10.18: Week 1, Day 3: Shoulders (Intervals)—Woke up with a headache, but I still managed to get this intense workout done! Then I went to Kettlebell Fire class after work; always a killer class!
Friday, 10.19: Week 1, Day 4: Legs (HIIT)—Wasn’t sure how my legs would handle this, but thankfully it was a GOOD morning workout!!
Saturday, 10.20: Rested.
Sunday, 10.21: Ran the DETROIT FREEPRESS INTERNATIONAL HALF MARATHON today in 2:47:58!! Not a PR but definitely a GREAT race :-D
TOTAL WEEKLY MILEAGE: 18.43 miles
*Almost got hit by a car on Tuesday night—it was sunny & I was being careful checking my surroundings, but the girl zoomed up out of a parking lot without looking & barely missed me as I was crossing the entrance. Still gives me jitters thinking about it, but I am VERY thankful I missed that.
*I am feeling SORE which I haven’t felt in a long time—it’s a great feeling!!!
*I need to increase my weights, and THAT is really awesome to know how strong I am getting!! :)
*Ran my 12th half marathon on Sunday!!! It was really a great race, other than my lower back giving me issues at the end. I’m so so so glad I got the chance to run it!!!
