The best way to describe the weather last week is as “The Big Thaw”, which turned out to be only temporary. It felt like such a weird week and I can’t even remember the exact order of events with the weather. When we left off last week it has been in the single digits with wind chills around 0. There was ice on Monday afternoon/evening, it warmed up to 60 degrees on Friday, and there was quite a bit of rain in there too. Now it’s back to being cold again.
But who am I to complain about the weather when my treadmill finally arrived?! I ended up doing all my runs after Monday on there for various reasons. One being that I was excited about it and wanted to test it out. It also made sense logistically since I needed to run early and wanted to avoid running in ice, rain, and wind.
I’m actually in Florida for a few days, where it’s warmer, but still chilly in the mornings and evenings (by Florida standards). We are doing Disney with my niece and in-laws, so my blogging time is limited! I’ll be playing catch up later this week.
Anyway, here is what happened last week.
Monday: 4 miles following this 30 minute workout
My only outdoor run of the week. It was 17 degrees and felt amazing because there was no wind! I followed Laura’s workout and then just kept running to hit 4 miles.
Tuesday: 10 minutes spin bike, Strength Training
I’m still really liking using my spin bike to warm up before workouts. My basement is so cold in the mornings so it feels good to move a little!
Wednesday: 3.8 miles on the treadmill
The treadmill came on Tuesday, and was there when I got home from work. Rob had worked from home while it was delivered and set up and then tested it out, so on Tuesday night he showed me how to use it. There’s still more to learn but the basics are easy enough. (It has iFit which I am still figuring out!)
Thursday: Strength training and 1 mile run
I completed my mobility and strength training work, then did burpees and push-ups, and ran a mile on the treadmill. I was pretty beat after this workout!
Friday: 20 minutes spinning, 20 minutes running, 20 minutes yoga
I know that it will be tempting to skip my cross training now that we have a treadmill, so I made sure to get in some cycling and yoga. This workout went by quickly since I was only doing each activity for 20 minutes. I also did a 2 1/2 minute plank.
Saturday: 9 miles
I ran this on the treadmill since I had to get it done early. I tested out the iFit which was pretty cool because I got to run down the coast of California. Finished this up with push-ups.
Sunday: Rest with lots of walking around Disney
