Weekly Recap {01/02-01/08}


That’s right --- GNARLY. I kicked butt this week! I meet almost all my goals --- I accidentally skipped my PT Exercises on Saturday because I fell asleep on the couch at like 7:30pm. I guess I was tired! It was great to get back to the gym and do some cardio. I also really enjoyed the yoga video I did on Tuesday {thanks to You Tube}. Oh, and the running! I had three great runs this week. I’m feeling great and reminding myself that I have to take it slow and build my endurance back up.

This week our running coaches also asked us to be MENTORS again for spring training group! On Saturday I lead a small run/walk pace group. I am really looking forward to getting to know all the new faces in the training group over the next several weeks.

Plank-a-day is going well … I’m working on a 30 second plank right now.  At first I was progressing by 5 seconds per day and then I realized that was too hard so I dropped back down to 30 seconds until I can hold that without shaking.  The husband is doing this challenge with me also.  He is at 1 – 45 second plank.  My goal with this challenge is to build my core strength and #suckless {right, Heather?}.

I linked all my workouts to my Daily Mile logs if you really want to read about them. Otherwise, just know I kept busy this week! Are we friends on Daily Mile yet?!?
