For pretty much the past week I have been fighting off an annoying cold. Last Sunday night my throat started to hurt, and was the worst for most of the day on Monday. (Just in time to give 3 presentations!) Since then it’s sort of lingered, never really becoming a full cold but just enough to make me more tired and make working out a little more difficult.
Luckily it was a short work week, but those three days were jam-packed. It was nice to have a long weekend to try to relax and recover. On Thursday we went to my parents’ to celebrate Thanksgiving and some of my family from NY came to visit.
Sunday was spent decorating for Christmas! I really can’t believe it’s already that time of year. I finally made some headway with Christmas shopping too.
Monday: 30 minutes spinning and PT exercises
I wanted to do a harder spinning workout but because I didn’t feel well I just ended up riding the bike at a relatively easy pace.
Tuesday: 3 mile run, Pure Barre Tone in 10 (abs and seat), 10 minutes yoga
I had a morning meeting and worked from home for the first hour of the day, so I had a little extra time to work out without my usual commute. Meredith reminded me that I still have this Pure Barre Tone in 10 subscription for a few more weeks so I figured I should take advantage of that!
Wednesday: Strength training/PT exercises
Nothing special here, but I was sore for a couple days from this workout.
Thursday: 6.1 miles, 20 minutes yoga
Thanksgiving run! I just did an easy out and back and then a yoga flow focusing on back and hips.
Friday: 50 minutes Pilates
The Pilates video I did really explained how to do each move slowly which was helpful. I never really know if I am doing some of the exercises correctly!
Saturday: 5 miles plus PT exercises
I did a hilly run in my new shoes, and started to get a blister towards the end of the run. I like the shoes otherwise!
Sunday: 30 minutes yoga for hips, hamstrings, and back; PT exercises
I finished up by practicing headstand a few times!
As you can see I did not keep up with my yoga streak from last week. Things were just too busy plus I was tired from not feeling well. I was glad that I managed to sneak in a few sessions here and there!
Did you run on Thanksgiving?
Anyone else not feeling well lately?
Do you sometimes get blisters from new shoes? Do you stick it out or give up on them?
