I kicked some workout boo-tay this week. Yep. I did. Thanks for asking.
Jeez. Babies are rude. I’m gonna talk about it anyway. Here that rude baby?
I don’t normally list my workouts but this week I actually doubled up three times, which means I, hater of all mornings, woke up early three times. So, that makes me feel all proud and junk. *pats self on back* So here we go:
- Monday: Martial arts fitness class (45 min)
- Tuesday: 5 mile run in the morning. 1 hour strength training in the evening.
- Wednesday: 3.25 mile run in the morning. 1 hour spin class in the evening.
- Thursday: Rest. Stuffed my face instead.
- Friday: 5.25 mile run in the morning. 3 mile sprint workout in the evening.
The sprint workout on Friday is one that my trainer gave me a long time ago. You can adjust it to your own fitness level and I like it because it’s pretty mindless. I don’t have to look at a sheet constantly to do it. I just need to pay attention to the seconds on the treadmill. It’s a good one for when your short on time but want to feel (and look) like you worked out for an hour.
Since I wanted to get more miles in, I increased my sprint time to 45 seconds (with a 1:15 recovery) and added 5 minutes to the workout time. My sprints are generally at a 9.2-9.5 (between a 6:31 and 6:14 pace) and my recovery is a 4.0 walk. Before you all think, “oh crap, she’s running again!”, just know I’m only running because that’s what’s easiest in the morning. Not necessarily because I want to or I’m enjoying it. I’m gonna keep up the double workouts for another 2 or 3 weeks since they seem to be working but running and I are still on a break. We’re just on speaking terms now.
After the workout Friday, hubs and I went out for some beers with our personal trainer, Linda.
I know that seems like an oxymoron but at least I had a salad with my beers and at one point we mentioned working out. So I think it counts as healthy.
Today, hubs and I did a Crossfit workout. We literally didn’t think we could make it through the whole thing. It was a 30 minute workout and 10 minutes into it, we were dying. So we took it 5 minutes at a time and decided at the end of every 5 minutes if we were going to keep going. It was that hard.
After the first set took me the full minute, my trainer (the other one, not Linda) made me do the modified version. With the modified version, I had about 10-15 seconds to rest before I had to start the next set and it still kicked my ass. You can go ahead and do the math on how many reps that ends up being. I’d do it but it might make me cry.
Now I need to get something productive done. I haven’t done anything on my to do list this week, which is unusual for me. I’m probably the only person I know that can workout that that much and still feel lazy.
