I’m linking up with Holly and Tricia for their Weekly Wrap.
Hoping everyone had a good week!
*Week #4, December 28-January 3
- PLAN – 6 miles all easy effort
- ACTUAL – Skipped.
It was gross outside. No way was I going to run outside and risk falling. 🙂 I could have gone to the gym but still no. I did this workout on Tuesday.
- PLAN – Cycle Zone and Body Works Plus Abs
- ACTUAL –Skipped both classes but did run 8 miles @10:37 average pace
I skipped my workouts to do the one from yesterday. I alternated 2 minutes/3 minutes @10:00; 10:21; and 10:43. Took a break after mile 5 to get more water and to move to another treadmill because these two women next to me were constantly talking and annoying. I gave them dirty looks but they must not have been dirty enough because they kept talking. Go figure that I ran into them later in the locker room. I ran 2 extra miles to finish the month with 80 miles. That’s what I get for skipping workouts.
- PLAN –2 miles warm up (10:00-10:45), 2 minutes around 8:30 with 3 minutes recovery and repeat until you get 2 miles, 1 mile cool down @ 9:00-9:30
- ACTUAL – 5 miles @10:46 average pace
My last run of 2015. Miles 1 and 2 were done @10:43. 2 minutes were done at 8:27; 8:20; 8:20; 8:20; and 8:20 pace while recoveries were done walking @17:08 pace. Last mile I alternated 2 minutes/3 minutes @8:57; 9:05; and 9:14.
The 8:20 did not feel too hard. I could have gone faster to 8:13 but legs were tired from yesterday. Next time I’ll try it. I did stop to walk for a few seconds during the last mile.
- PLAN- OFF
- ACTUAL- OFF
- PLAN – OFF
- ACTUAL- OFF
I went out for a walk. It wasn’t too cold. I stopped at Target and ended up buying about $40 worth of stuff. I actually get bored walking (would rather run) but I actually enjoyed this walk.
- PLAN- 10 miles
- ACTUAL- 9.02 @10:39 average pace
Another cold day but not too windy. Some ice on the path which made us take it a little slower. About 15 seconds slower than last week but felt much better today. Again, the last mile was tough but I pushed through to finish my run. Overall, still very pleased with this run. Splits are:
Later that evening I did some stretches and foam rolled. My coach reminded me that I need to do this every single day. 🙂 Lola loves to keep me accompany.
- PLAN- Yoga
- ACTUAL- Did not make to class.

Back to work tomorrow. It’s been a fun and relaxing two weeks at home but I am looking forward to getting back to my routine. Today I made some meals for this week, oatmeal for breakfast and quinoa with corn and chickpeas for lunch. Now the countdown starts for Spring Break in April!
