Weekend Inspiration, Training Recap & Giveaway Winner

In honor of Dr. Seuss’s birthday yesterday I knew I wanted to share one of his quotes this week (so many great ones to choose from!).  I ended up with this one since it seemed to tie in going back to school and running (ok, ok, I know the “feet in your shoes” part doesn’t literally refer to running ,but close enough!).


And congratulations to @pagirlontherun, winner of the FitPro Giveaway!

RECAP (2/25-3/3 )

Monday – 3 mile run and 30 minutes on the elliptical

Tuesday – 30 minutes elliptical/ 50 jumping jacks, 40 russian twists, 30 squats, 20 supermans, 10 pushups

Wednesday – studying & test

Thursday – studying, test & work

Friday – 5 mile run (8:59 pace!)

Saturday – 90 minute yoga class and 3 mile run

New challenge on my run today – language barrier!  I’m not totally sure, but I think I may have committed to running a marathon in Italy next year!  

Running with Fabio

Sunday – 5 mile run

Yoga – 90 minutes

Weekly Mileage –  16 miles 

Monthly Mileage –  13 miles

2013 Mileage – 119 miles

Overall – FINALLY getting over being sick and have gotten through the first test in each of my classes so hopefully I’ll be able to get back on track!  I was really happy with Friday’s run, I hadn’t exactly meant for it to be a tempo run since I still wasn’t feeling 100%, but after I saw my pace for the first 2 miles I decided to see if I could keep it up for the full 5 miles.

NEXT WEEK (3/10-3/17)

Running – I’d like to get in a speed work session and a long run

Yoga – my goal is at least 2 classes this week since I’ve sort of been slacking since I was sick

Bootcamp –  I’d really like to get to one this week!

  1. I totally feel you on the getting back into after being sick. I’m still trying to get back into it, but if it’s not one thing, it’s another! But congrats on your tempo run! That is so awesome! And, of course, I’m totally jealous of it lol And doing a marathon in Italy sounds AMAZING.

    Btw, your Tuesday workout totally reminds me of what my trainer makes me do as a warm-up or active rest. He’ll make me do 5,4,3,2,1s or 3, 2, 1s…both are cruel. Great job on doing them on your own!

  2. I understand about getting back into training after being sick or in my case being away. I loved our trip, but after three weeks of just a few workouts, it was hard to get back into training. I am back to it now and enjoying the speedwork and long runs. Congrats on your speedy 5 miles run….super pace!
