Last week was pretty successful for the most part. Monday I did 3 miles on the elliptical followed by an hour of yoga. I think yoga really helped stretch out my legs, they felt great afterwards. Tuesday I did 3.5 miles on the elliptical and then Body Pump. I was really into the class and upped my weights a little. Wednesday I went on a lunchtime run in the sunshine, it was such a great way to break up my day, I thoroughly enjoyed it. I managed 3 miles in 32 minutes and did 5 minutes of speed work at the end. The picture below is from the lunchtime run by my work, isn’t the view gorgeous?
Thursday and Friday I rested and my legs loved it. Saturday I was exhausted from Friday night’s adventures but still managed 2.77 very exhausting miles in the fog and hail. Typical Newfoundland weather. Sunday I was supposed to do elliptical but the thought of getting on the elliptical made me get bored just thinking about it, so I switched things up with 30 minutes in the pool and swam a slow 800m. It did my mind and body good!
This week I managed 16 miles total between running and elliptical, strength training, yoga, and cross-training. Did I stick to the plan fully? Definitely not! But I am still very pleased! Here is the plan for this week:
|Run (Minutes)||36 min||REST||20 min|
|Elliptical / Arc (Min)||30 min||35 min||30 min||20 min||40 min|
|Class||Body Flow||Yoga||Body Pump|
The plan of attack here is take a little recovery early in the week and ramp things up towards the end. I already completed Monday’s workout so I am ahead already!
How many times a week do you try and fit in strength training, yoga, and/or cross-training?
Do you workout at lunchtime?
