My #FaveWorkout – Week 17

This week my #FaveWorkout was more a day of workouts…

Yesterday was my birthday and I celebrated it doing what I love…working out πŸ™‚

I started my day with 45 minutes of easyΒ #runlove at 4:30 am with the Iron Hippie and Basil. It was perfect outside (low 40s F) and no one was out and about yet πŸ™‚ After the run, the Iron Hippie made me a “birthday smoothie” to replace my birthday cake for the day…I think it had enough calories in it for the entire day…


Chocolate almond milk, 1/2 a bag of mint Oreo cookies, a heaping scoop of peanut butter and two scoops of Osmo Recovery...#toomanycalories

After work, we took to the trainers for some #bikelove #intervals. Thankfully it was 74F outside and we rode in the driveway on our trainers. I broke out my new Coeur Sports tri kit…it is time to reach for the stars and #dreambig!! Β “Shoot for the moon. Even if you miss, you’ll land among the stars.” ~Les Brown


I love that my friends understand me and want to workout while celebrating my birthday at the same time πŸ™‚







It wasn’t all fun and celebrations. We did get down to work with this 30 second #interval workout:

20 minute warm-up including 3×45 sec single leg drills
3x(7:00 of 30 sec sprint/30 sec recovery) w/ 5 min easy spin between sets
9 minute cool down

After the #bikelove, I taught TRX…lots of core work to give the legs a bit of a break in preparation for today’s long run after work.


What was your favorite workout this week?

  1. LOL… My favorite workout? All of them. Rode six days in a row. Maybe I’ll take tomorrow off before riding on Sunday or maybe I’ll just ride until it rains. Hard to decide (but it’s a good problem to have).

  2. I love the fact that you rode the trainer with a feathery tiara on your head while celebrating your birthday. My kinda woman!!! Happy Birthday Girlfriend!

  3. Happy Birthday! What a great day of working out and spending time with friends. It really doesn’t get better than that πŸ™‚

  4. Happy Belated Birthday!!! And that smoothie? Mmmmm, good! Sounds like you had an awesome day and workout. My favorite thing to do on my birthday is run, so I totally understand! My last long run was Saturday and today’s (Monday) is only 3… I’m not sure it’s even worth getting myself sweaty for! Haha! Taper trouble? Have a great week and I’m going to have to go through your posts to get your bike workouts since I’m starting “real” training in two weeks! Yikes! (But I’m kinda excited too)

    1. Thanks Kelli!! It was a great day!! I understand the 3 mile sweat thing…sometimes I think the same thing during taper time. Yay for “real” training πŸŠπŸš΄πŸƒπŸ˜Š

  5. Happy Birthday!!!! (Days late) That smoothie looks amazing!!!! Love that you guys rode your trainers in the driveway and with fun hats on too!!!! So awesome!!
    My favorite work out was a swim. I made all of my intervals and stayed strong! it went by super fast too!!! πŸ™‚
