Thurs, 11/5: 5.5 mile run at 6am
Fri, 11/6: rest.
Sat, 11/7: 8 mile morning run — 3.5m solo, 4.5m with the boytoy.
Sun, 11/8: light gym sesh (with boy) in my building: kettlebells, abs, free weights
Mon, 11/9: 5 mile run home from work, during which i literally ran into one of my friends and kept pace with him & his speedy long legs for the last couple of miles. it was nice to have someone push me a bit.
Tues, 11/10: worked out in my room while watching Scandal (omg i can’t stop with that show): lots of free weights, squats & 10 mins of planks (with breaks but still happy about that!)
Wed, 11/11: i was off for Veteran’s Day (thank you to everyone who served/serves this country and keeps us safe!), so i ran a lovely 10-miler mid-day. glorious.
Thurs, 11/12 (i’m a day behind on this post so i’ll include today’s workout): 6-7am personal boot camp sesh in an entirely empty gym (love it): total body, including free weights, kettlebells, lots of lunges/squats/burpees/skaters, lateral & row machines, decline bench abs, & push-ups. this felt so good today.
total weekly mileage: 28.5
thoughts: i just want to run all the time, every day. forcing myself to do the total body workouts/weights is a bit of a struggle vs my desire to run as much as i can (while the weather is still so nice here), although i’m always glad i do them. i’m still on a post-marathon running high exactly one month later and am so thankful for that. 🙂
