Since I’m not training for anything specific right now, I haven’t been great about posting my workouts. No one probably cares but me, but it’s my blog and I post what I want. And posting workouts is a good way to keep myself on track and accountable. So, here are the deets from last week (I said “deets.” I’m so hip.)
Monday: 3 quick treadmill miles before my favorite Muscle Works class. (Sad side note: I went to class tonight and learned that my favorite instructor, Carly, is taking some time off from teaching. Frowny face.)
Tuesday: 5 miles easy plus some quick core work
Wednesday: 1 hour lifting, 30 minutes spin bike intervals. I broke my run streak because my foot, calf, and hip were all feeling twingy, and as I’ve said before, streaking isn’t worth injury risk. The workout streak is what I really care about; it doesn’t really matter if the workout is running or not.
Thursday: 6 miles fartleks. Which is just a fun way of saying “treadmill run with some fast minutes.”
Friday: An hour of lifting and a 4-mile run. And this awful ab workout.
My abs are still sore. And I did it only twice.
Saturday: 11-mile run. It felt good to get outside and run double-digits again.
Sunday: 4 slow recovery miles around the neighborhood, checking out everyone’s Christmas decor. Also, I wore shorts. Last weekend, our temps barely topped zero. Silly Colorado.
One of my favorite bloggers, Heather from Better with Veggies, put that picture on her blog today. I did not win this week’s Move Happy challenge, but I felt pretty cool. 🙂
Did everybody see that I lifted weights THREE times this week?! Stop the presses; this is big news.
In other big news (or not), I’m starting to miss training hard. This running what I feel like, when I feel like it bit has been nice (and will continue to be nice during the next couple of weeks of holiday busyness and travel), but I’m ready to train with a purpose again. I need a goal on the horizon…any suggestions?
What’s your favorite workout? Running, lifting, none of the above?
What race(s) should I do this spring?

I went for a run in shorts today and it was amazing. In fact, I plan to run each and every day this week in the warm temps to make up for the ridiculousness of the cold last week! Shorts are my friends 🙂
I think you should make it a new goal to make me do the running plan I asked you about! Are you laughing yet?
You know my answer! So proud of you for hitting the weights!! For an hour!! And I am definitely going to be doing that ab routine. I’m always looking for new ab routines to do because I am lazy and generally just stick to crunches and call it good. It’s no wonder I don’t have washboard abs. Oh. And that dessert I eat every night…
Dessert > abs. Always. 🙂
Oh my gosh! I want to torture myself and do that ab workout! Mostly because I want those abs!
For not training for anything, your workouts are looking pretty damn good.
New to your blog, but great job on your workouts! I love running for exercise but if I had to choose something else, I’ve been loving lifting!
I’m glad you found me! Can’t wait to check out your blog!
Yay for working out!
I definitely need to get back into it!
