Last week was very successful despite coming down with the common cold on Monday (which lasted all week) and having Thanksgiving celebrations later in the week.
45 minutes of TRX…this was mostly a core workout since I came down with the common cold, but it was still a great workout despite how I felt.
50 minute run…It was a BEAUTIFUL winter day for a run, so we ran up to the golf course and ran from hole 1-9 before hopping on the trails by our house. It was fun to do something different for a run 🙂
AM: 1:15 Trainer Ride with single-leg drills…this was a great way to start the short school day (1 pm dismissal).
PM: 50 min – 2400 yard swim…this was good, but the breathing was a bit of a challenge. I felt good and timed my 500 to see where I was (while not pushing the pace)…I was pleasantly surprised.
It snowed ALL.DAY.LONG. I shoveled snow when I got home from work/my swim and an anonymous person put a smile on my face because of some fun left in our driveway 🙂
I finished out my evening by going to hot yoga. It felt so good to reconnect with my yoga mat!!
Thankfully we have a 24/7 key card for the gym since it was closed on Thanksgiving day. When we woke up at 5 am to go run, it was COLD! We waited until 6:30 am and then went to the gym because of these windchill temperatures:
After my 45 min easy run on the treadmill, I did a 1 hour strength training session.
We spent the afternoon and evening enjoying lots of food and fun with family:
AM 50 min swim – 2100 yards with lots of drills and easy swimming 🙂
AM 80 min run with LOTS of hills…what goes up, must come down 😉 This was a challenging run as most of it was on snow covered roads and trails and my feet slipped a BUNCH!! I need to get the sheet metal screws that Kristen mentioned into one of my pairs of running shoes so that I don’t have to worry about the snow throughout the winter (yes…I rotate between 4 pairs of running shoes and one could keep the screws in for the winter).
I followed up the run with 1 hour of strength training and core work…it felt GREAT!!
