Last week when I wrapped up with Holly from HoHo Runs and Tricia from MissSippiPiddlin, I was recovering from a bit too many bottomless mimosas. I recovered well though and was able to have a good week :)!
10 min abs finished of with 5 min jump rope (500 reps) and 5 min of stretching.
20 min and I am done!
Nice way to start the week!
Morning sweat with @grokkerinc and @kuschfit and 30 min HIIT workout #2!
It was a bit hard to get out of my warm bed this morning but I made it! Started with the moon and stars and ended with the sunrise.
2 lap warm up( I was late so only got in 1) followed by dynamic stretches.
The workout today consisted of 1- 1200s (3times around the track), 2 800s and 2 400s.
As I mentioned last week, distances over 800 tend to be really difficult for me on the track. I was so glad my speed pacer @athletemoms was back!!
As usual, she pushed me past my comfort zone which was exactly what I needed!
The goal continues to be to improve your pace each round (such an love/hate!!)
800: (we had some technical difficulties here) approx times: 3:50, 3:39
400: :87, :86
Official end of track workouts are next Wed but there no one is ready to end so we might have a few more….wippeee!
Most importantly on Wednesday…..it was my angel’s 5th birthday. If you missed my birthday post you can read it here.
Thursday: Rest Day
We partied a bit too hard for MJ’s bday the night before…we shut Chuckie Cheese down! lol!!
Rest day-it’s a part of the program!
-REST PREVENTS INJURY
-YOUR MUSCLES NEED REST
-YOUR PERFORMANCE WON’T DIP
-OVER-TRAINING AFFECTS SLEEP
-REDUCE MENTAL FATIGUE
Thursday night was Math night at my son’s school. It was really fun watching them engage and enjoy in math activities.
I knocked out 2 workouts today!
1st workout complete with @grokkerinc and @kuschfit Barre Workout #2!
This Barre workout was all about balancing and lengthening.
2nd workout of the day-Heated yoga @extendyoga-just what my mind and body needed!
My son’s game was a bit further than usual but ended up being close to a local mountain, so on a whim we decided to head up there for a little hike.
We hiked for almost 3 hours, enjoyed the views and each other.
The kiddies were troopers! We probably hiked close to 4 miles total. They didn’t complain at all!!!
Sunday: Rest Day
After that impromtu hike fest on Saturday, my body was thankful for the rest!!!
I was suppose to go to Costco and do some meal prepping but that didn’t happen. It’s all good though.
Well there is it my week in review.
Another good week of working out and family time (my 2 favorite things!). I do need to get some more runs in to get ready for my final half of 2015 in December. We will see how that goes over the next week.
How was your week? Did you meal prep this week-what’s on the menu?
Have a Fit-Tastic Day!!
