Good morning friends!
Last week was a busy week between my spring semester classes starting and the snow continuing to pile up here in New England!
It’s just about a month since the Goofy Challenge and as of right now I’m not currently registered for any races in 2015 – and it’s make me nuts!
I always like to have a race on the calendar to keep me motivated, so I’ve been doing some race research and I’m really hoping to choose a couple of spring races this week. Since moving and going back to school though I’m also trying to keep an eye on my race budget a little more, so I’ll most likely be looking for some local stuff.
Then I really need to start looking towards the fall! Who’s planning on doing a fall marathon?? I am leaning towards one, but there are so many great fall races to choose from it’s difficult!
Monday – 3 mile run (treadmill – yuck!) and 1 hour spin class
Plank – 1:10
Can you believe this was my first spin class ever?!? I actually really liked it and definitely plan on going again, I’m sure it’ll be great cross training!
Tuesday – 30 minute pool Burdenko workout
Plank – 1:17
Wednesday – 4 mile run
Plank – :45
Thursday – 40 minute pool Burdenko workout
Plank – 1:20
Friday – 3 mile run
Plank – 1:27
Saturday – 90 minute yoga class
Plank – 1:11
Sunday – rest day
Plank – 1:36
Weekly Mileage – 10 miles
2015 Mileage – 91.5 miles
Not thrilled with only running 10 miles this week, but between the snow and this being the first week of classes for the semester, there was a bit of a learning curve figuring out work, classes and workouts. (Honestly, working at a gym definitely helps!)
I have class Tuesday & Thursday nights (3 hours of chemistry after a full work day – yuck!), so I opted to get in the pool for a quick water workout during my lunch break those days, I felt like it was a nice relaxing workout for such a long day!
I also stuck with my February plank-a-day challenge so far! It’s been fun checking in with some Twitter friends every day for accountability!
I love to swim and look forward to warmer weather when I can get back in the pool. Fitness classes are also something I am trying to incorporate in my weekly workouts at least twice a week.
Spin can be a lot of fun. I did spin before jumping into this whole running thing.
I did my first spin class recently, and I really liked it, but I’m having trouble finding a regular time to go cause my schedule is so nutty. Right now my favorite cross-training is taking Les Mills classes at the gym–CXWORX is my fave!
