Hi there! I hope everyone had a great holiday weekend! I’m just popping in today to share my workouts from last week and some pictures from Christmas. I’m off to Michigan later today to keep the festivities rolling!
Monday: 20 minutes spinning + BBG Arms and Abs
I had run on Sunday, so went with a little biking and arms/legs to start out the week.
Tuesday: 3.5 miles + PT exercises
I did another mini-workout: Warm up, then 2 minute hard/1 min easy (7 times total) plus a few minutes of easy running to cool down.
Wednesday: 10 minutes spinning + BBG Legs and Cardio
More burpees once again! I think they are in just about every BBG workout.
Thursday: 4.3 miles + PT exercises
It was a balmy 37 degrees for this run! I wore a few less layers, and was slightly chilly when I started but ended up feeling really good after the first mile. Isn’t this how December weather is supposed to be?
Friday: 10 minutes spinning + BBG Total Body Workout
The nice thing about following BBG is that I don’t have to think about what to do for my strength training routines. I think it would have been more difficult to get started with a workout if I had to figure out what to do on my own!
Saturday: 10 miles!
My first double-digit run post-injury! In fact, the last time I ran 10 miles was in the Baltimore 10 miler the week before my foot started hurting. I wasn’t planning to do 10, I actually had no distance in mind, but once I got to 8 I figured I would just keep going! I got outside a little later because of the rain but this run went by pretty quickly.
On Saturday afternoon Rob and I went to church and then met my parents, sister, and her fiancé for dinner. We then all went back to my parents’ house to exchange gifts.
Sunday: 4 easy miles
I love running on Christmas morning! A nice easy recovery run was perfect before heading home for breakfast, coffee, and exchanging gifts with Rob.
I must have been good because I got a new Garmin!! Of course 99% of my gifts were running related. I also love this mug that Rob had made for me with my blog on it!
We went back to my parents’ on Sunday afternoon and just had a low-key day. My sister went to her finance’s family’s house for the day, so it was just the 4 of us. Lots of relaxing, eating, and drinking wine, just the way I like it!
Tell me about your holiday weekend!
How were your workouts last week?
