Happy Monday everyone! Can you believe that I announced my goal of trying to qualify for Boston over 10 weeks ago?!? Wow! Time is flying by fast. This week Mother Nature decided to test my commitment to my goal by throwing a polar vortex our way that brought us ridiculously cold temperatures and windchills. Was it cold where you live too?
Wednesday night I was invited to Change It Up 360 in my town to try a Kettlebell/TRX fusion class with personal trainer Matt.
Change It Up 360
Thursday I forgot to bring my running shoes to the gym for spinning, so I set my road bike up on my indoor trainer after the kids went to bed and did an easy spin to help move out all of the waste materials in my muscles from Wednesdays kettlebell/TRX workout while watching yet another Mad Men episode on Netflix :grin:.
On Friday I went to a BodyPump/CRX (core strength class) at GoodLife Fitness. I wasn’t fully recovered from Wednesday so I lifted lighter weights than usual.
On Saturday the weather was finally warm enough to run outside. Unfortunately the sidewalks and roads were completely ice covered, and I think skates would have made my 10k run way easier. Then that night my best friend from highschool came over to hang out with us and have dinner. It was so nice to see her again!
Total for this week: 42k
10 week total: 236k
This coming week is a recovery, cut-back week for me. On Friday I ‘ll be taking the train to Montreal with 7 girlfriends for a girls weekend away. My friend Christine is turning 40, so we’re all going to honour her. I ‘m really excited because I’ve never been to Montreal before, though I hear that there are lots of fun things to see and do. I ‘ll be honest in that I ‘m not anticipating on doing any running while there. I ‘m hoping to be able to dance off some calories though 😀
Here’s my workout plan:
Tuesday: 8k run
Wednesday: 8k run before work, BodyPump at lunch
Thursday: Spinning class
Friday, Saturday & Sunday: Rest/Girls weekend away.
All in all that was my week … how was yours?
Have a great week!
Question: What’s on your fitness plan for this week?
