Kev and I worked out this morning (spin class and weights) and then we ran errands and shopped our hearts out. Also went to one of our favorite mom and pop restaurants, Liberty in Libertyville, IL. It is always soooo good! We have been watching the Olympics all weekend and I forsee the whole week consisting of that.
Hope you all had a wonderful Valentine’s Day!
Here are my workouts for the week and it was a pretty lame week. I know I can do so much better. I keep thinking that I don’t want to overdo it especially since I’m just starting out running but I feel like I’m hardly getting anywhere. Gotta really look at my schedule and see what I can do.
Time: 45 min.
Miles: 2.51 (ran 10 one minute intervals)
Calories burned: 491
Awesome workout today! I was able to run without my shins hurting. Kept looking at the huge word PERSEVERE on the gym wall and just kept going. Best running day yet.
Tuesday- Day Off
Time: 1 hr
I WAS going to go to spin class but after shoveling I felt sick. I think I really over did it out there.
Thursday- Day Off
Time: 50 min.
Miles: 3.22 (ran 3-two minute intervals & 5-one minute intervals)
Calories burned: 552
Had to stop after 18 min. and put on my shin sleeves because my shins were hurting so bad. I did OK but it took a lot to get through this run. Was hoping for a good run like Monday but I’ll keep trying.
Saturday- Day Off
*Strength training (upper body)
Time: 20 min.
Time: 1 hr 4 min.
Calories burned: 741
I really need to figure out my strength training days and not take so many days off each week. I wish we lived closer to the gym because right now I have to drive about 30 min. or so to get there. Drives me crazy! Hopefully this week will be better. Heading in to week 5 of running. Please tell me it gets easier LOL
How did your workouts go?
