I really enjoy reading others’ weekly workouts, and it’s been keeping me accountable, so let’s take a look, eh?
Monday: total rest day after D.C. Half.
Tuesday: Back at it at Uplift for some Uplift – Cardio. Nobody else showed up to this class, so I actually got a solo class. Win. There were a gazillion donkey kicks in this class, though, and they were pretty rough on my still-somewhat-fatigued legs.
Wednesday: I sort of wanted to run but wasn’t feeling outdoor running in the cold, so did a few miles on the treadmill. I was bored about 30 seconds in, so I did enough of this HIIT workout to take me to just three miles. I did a lot of high-intensity interval training when I was losing weight, and I’m trying to add it back in to both combat boredom and lose some of the belly that’s accumulated around my waist.
Thursday: Yoga! When I went to sign in and my favorite instructor wasn’t there, I nearly turned around and left. She’s that awesome. But I stayed, and although the class was nowhere as good as hers, it was fine.
Saturday: Yoga with Ashley and her NYJL committee. It was a new-to-me instructor at Laughing Lotus, and in a new room, with lots of sunshine flowing in, and I enjoyed it. It was a Level 1 class, so it was pretty slow and held poses for a long time. As I’ve gotten more into yoga, I’m finding I’m starting to enjoy classes that move slightly faster.
I’m enjoying a little bit of downtime from running before gearing up for more spring races, as you can tell by last week’s workouts, and it’s actually been easier to plan workouts since I’ve been mostly going to classes.
This week’s general workout plan: 2-3 Uplift classes, at least 2 yoga classes, 2 runs.
What workouts do you have planned for this week? Do you prefer workouts that are already planned for you or to squeeze in your workouts when you can?
