Workouts – Last Week Today – June 11

Welcome to my weekly workout recap, today I’m recapping my workouts from last week today. There isn’t much to report this week.  With training for the Chicago marathon kicking off on the 19th, I opted to take it easy.  My legs are still feeling less than stellar (not sure why, thinking those dang burpees), and I need them to feel…

Workouts – Last Week Today – April 30

Welcome to my weekly workout recap, today I’m recapping my workouts from last week today. This week seemed like a low activity week…  I was able to get in 3 runs this week (2 with the dogs), and I continued with my plank-a-day and daily squats on most days and got 3 arm workouts done.  My monthly visitor came on Sunday, and…

Workouts – Last Week Today – April 23

Welcome to my weekly workout recap, today I’m recapping my workouts from last week today. After taking a week off running following my 25k and half marathon, I was excited to get back to it.  I was able to get in 3 runs this week (2 with the dogs), and I continued with my plank-a-day and daily squats on most days, but…

Workouts – Last Week Today – May 15

This week I headed ‘back home’ for my annual visit with my mom, sister, and her family in northeast Kansas.  While I can’t say that I miss living in Kansas, I do enjoy visiting! In my planning for this trip I found a half marathon that looked like fun and since it also had a 5k, I signed my nieces up…

Workouts – Last Week Today – May 8

My next half marathon is coming up in 6 days!  This time around I’m not cutting back as much as I did before, since I felt that it was just way too much.  We’ll see how I feel for this one. Since my 30 day plank challenge ended, I’ve been very forgetful about including planking in my routine.  I did…

Workouts – Last Week Today – May 1 & April Recap

Aside from the half marathon on Sunday, this week’s workouts really missed the mark.  I really didn’t do much of anything. We were planning on heading back from Galveston on Monday, but the weather was so nice, we all decided to extend the trip one more day. Here is how my week lined up: Sunday – Run Like A Diva…

Workouts … Last Week Today – April 24

Tapering down for the half marathon on Sunday. More on this later in the week. I feel like I have cut down too much this week, but I think I will be ok. The week started out awful with heavy rains and thunderstorms all through the night on Sunday.  I wound up sleeping out on the couch to try to…

Workouts … last week today – April 17

I’ve started to taper down a bit for my upcoming half marathons.  Run Like A Diva is in 7 days! I have kept up with planks for the week, but have taken out the HIIT until I get across the finish line.  The beauty (to me) of the 12 Minute Athlete app is that you get a different workout each…

Workouts … last week today – March 27

I’m joining the Weekly Wrap link up hosted by Holly at HoHoRuns and Tricia at MissSippiPiddlin. I’m continuing to add HIIT from 12 minute athlete and Planks to my routine, and it is going well.  I can feel myself getting stronger as I do the exercises on the HIIT routine, however the planks are becoming increasingly hard as the time goes up.  I have started to divide the…
