Friday? Already? This week flew by, but I’m not complaining! This weekend will be a lot of fun 🙂
I’m happy with this week’s workouts- I actually managed to do a lot!
Saturday: 15 minute warm-up, then a body-weight leg workout with Russ. It was tough, but it’s so much more fun working out with someone else and Russ is so motivating!
Monday: 3 miles run, triceps workout, abs. (and physical therapy where I do a lot of ab work and stretching).
Tuesday: 7 MILE RUN! But…it hurt. A lot. I started feeling some slight knee pain around the fifth mile and then around 6 it started to get really bad. I’m the worst when it comes to giving up half way through (or…6/7 of the way through), so I just pushed through and finished with a slow, limping, 13 minute mile. I’m so sad that I’m not *magically* cured, but I’m going to keep working in physical therapy. Three weeks for my physical therapist to make a miracle happen! On the plus side, the weather was absolutely incredible. I change my mind with every season, but I am seriously loving this fall weather and the leaves changing. I’m hoping to get out and enjoy this fleeting time tomorrow and Sunday 🙂Wednesday: Off.
Thursday: SPINNING!!! My morning class was cancelled, so I went to the gym a little earlier than usual and realized that spinning would be starting in about 20 minutes. I jumped on a bike and read for ten minutes, then went to spinning and loved every minute of thinking about how tough it was. The class I went to was with a different instructor and it was a little harder than what I’m used to doing, but in a good way! I definitely left soaked and dripping in sweat. I missed spinning so much, and while I won’t be able to continue to go, I’ll definitely try to sneak a class here a there. The classes are included in our tuition, after all! I need to take advantage.
Friday: Twenty minutes of incline walking on the treadmill and then 13 minutes of jogging/ running. I am hesitant to jump back into running after hurting my knee on Tuesday, but I didn’t feel anything whatsoever. Phew. I did a total of 3 miles, then hopped off and completed a shoulder workout with about 30 seconds of ab work in between each set. It was a good workout!
Have a great weekend!
