Happy Monday! The past week has been busy with Thanksgiving and the beginning of the holiday madness. Miraculously, I was able to fit in a workout every day except Thanksgiving! Normally I love a good Thanksgiving morning workout, but this year we went out of town for the day. My goals for fitness/ running right now are just maintaining my fitness levels over the holidays, and avoid any big weight gain. I tend to eat ALL the delicious foods during this time of the year, so I have to make sure I’m at least consistent with working out. I have been keeping a lot of variety in my workouts, but they have been heavy on cardio, low on strength training. I plan to focus on adding in at least two strength workouts this coming week to get a better balance.
Here’s how last week looked!
Spin class. A really hard workout this morning with a LOT of sprints!
50 minutes/ 21.6 miles
Hill training on the parking ramps. It felt especially tough this morning. Great run!
4.11 miles/ 41:35 minutes/ 10:07 pace
Just enough time to do a quick spin class this morning.
36 minutes/ 15 miles
Eat my weight in stuffing. Pass out. Watch football. Repeat.
Elliptical workout after work
46 minutes/ 4.51 miles
Another elliptical workout today. EVERY treadmill was in use at the Y. I didn’t make it to the gym till 9am, so I had to take what was available. Let’s be honest, I watch a lot of Netflix while I use the elliptical, so I really didn’t mind 🙂
1 hour/ 9.59 miles
We have been having a REALLY gorgeous Fall. Usually by this time of the year, we have subzero temps and snow. On Sunday morning, I awoke to almost 30 degrees and NO wind. I have been doing a lot of my outdoor runs with friends over the past few months, so I enjoyed just listening to music and running solo today!
5.34 miles/ 52:40/ 9:52 pace
