Weekly Training Recap

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!

RECAP (2/2-2/8)

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!

OVERALL

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!

Anyone workout in the pool or do spin?

What’s your favorite cross training?

  1. 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.

  2. 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!
