Running....Although I had an idea mileage wise where I wanted to be by the end of the week, I was all over the place with how my daily runs went. I am also taking part in the Marathon Sports Winter Warrior Challenge (Run at least a mile outside each day in January) so there were days when I ran twice because of this.
Monday: I was at the gym early for some treadmill miles (5) and then when the hubby got home I ran 2 miles in our neighborhood. I discovered something about me....I am NOT a fan of running in the dark alone. My hubby reminded me that no attackers would be dumb enough to be out in this cold!!
Thursday: Today was slated to be freezing...like cancel school freezing in some parts of Massachusetts...but a winter warrior I am so I bundled WAY up and headed out! 3 miles later at 0 degrees, I was certainly feeling pretty badass!!
Friday: Yup back to the gym...are you seeing a pattern here! 5 mill miles and then more lunch time miles (3).
Saturday: I woke up, understandably, with a very tired body. Hubby was away so I ran a quick mile up and down my street. I was more than happy to rest the day away and watch a Pats win!!
Sunday: I was on Facebook Saturday night when I saw a fellow Cape runner/blogger Stacey was hosting a trail run Sunday morning just a few miles away from me! Perfect! I decided that my goal was 10 miles for the day so I headed out early to run to the place where I thought we were meeting up! I'm fairly new (3 years) to our area so I have a tendency to get lost! Thanks to my GPS I found them and had a great time exploring the woods! By the time I reached my door it was 11 miles total for the day!! WIN! Poor Stacey and Denise got lost in the woods though...sorry ladies!!
Total miles for the week: 40.9 YIKES!
Strength...I want to start being more consistent with my weight training but I am in a little bit of a holding pattern waiting to hear back on a few things so this week I conquered the kettlebells and free weights.
Monday: Kettlebell circuit (25 min)
Wednesday: Free weights with super sets (30 min)
Friday: Kettlebell circuit (25min)
Yoga/Stretching...While I found myself stretching and foam rolling some sore and tried legs, I was bad at keeping up with my GaiamTV Challenge. I'm thinking that this coming week I am going to start again! It is simple to complete. First you take the quiz...
