It’s hard to believe that another week of 2015 has come and gone! I’m writing this post on Sunday afternoon wondering what this upcoming week of weather will bring. It seems like lately the weather predictions haven’t been very accurate, and they are saying that we may get a few inches of snow on Monday and a few more on Tuesday, and then maybe something later in the week too. I know that other parts of the east coast are supposed to get hit way worse, so I can definitely handle a few inches! I wish weather was something that was more predictable…that’s no surprise coming from someone who is a control freak. Anyway, I guess we will see what happens!
Last weeks workouts went well. I had some really good runs and I think the dry needling worked a miracle (once again) on my piriformis. My other leg is still bothering me on and off, and I think that’s because its a more complicated area. I’ve continued to keep my mileage low and this upcoming week I would expect it to be low again, especially because of the weather.
Sunday: Rest- did some foam rolling and a 2 minute plank
Monday: 3.5 miles (cut short due to ice) + drills and 1 minute plank on stability ball. Went to chiro and had dry needling done on piriformis and quad
Tuesday: 4 miles + drills and strides and 2 minute moving plank; foam rolling
Wednesday: 3 miles on treadmill + body pump
Thursday: 30 minute online Barre3 class + 3 minute moving plank and foam rolling
Friday: 8 miles progression + myrtle routine + 1 minute plank on stability ball
I wanted to do a longer run on Friday because of potential ice on Saturday, and was planning for 6-7 but felt good and ended up getting faster as the run went on! Once I got to work and sat down my hips immediately tightened up. Yoga after work was a last minute decision and felt amazing!
Saturday: 4 miles on treadmill + rotating plank + glute exercises and foam rolling
I had no idea what was going on outside (I could hear that it was raining, and there was a winter weather advisory on my phone) so I headed to the gym. Turns out it would have been fine to run outside, I should have just waited a little until it wasn’t so dark out.
Total: 22.5 miles
As for the weekend, it was another relaxing one. Actually, Sunday was relaxing and Saturday was busy as usual with meal planning, grocery shopping, and meal prep. We also went to see the progress of our house, which is coming along great! Want to see our kitchen?
Well, clearly there is still a lot to be done:) It’s been fun to see the progress and it’s amazing how fast things go up! We are thinking that when we go up next weekend all the siding and drywall will be up!
How were your workouts last week?
Have the weather predictions for your area been accurate this season?
If time wasn’t an issue, how many days per week would you do yoga? I’m thinking at least a few minutes every day would be ideal, but a long and relaxing class 3-4 days a week.
