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

Workouts … last week today – March 20

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.  My legs/arms aren’t as sore from using the different muscles that I’m not used to.

Workouts … last week today – March 13

I’m joining the Weekly Wrap link up hosted by Holly at HoHoRuns and Tricia at MissSippiPiddlin. As mentioned on last week’s post, I have decided to add HIIT training and planks to my workout routine.  The HIIT workouts were tough, and I was sore from them for a few days, but it was a good kind of sore.       Sunday – Rest Monday – 4…

Mixing it up…

Since I have began running (almost a year ago), I have not consistently incorporated any type of other exercise in my routine other than running.  Bad, I know. With my first half marathon out of the way, I have decided to mix in some strengthening into my mix.  First addition is the plank… it is a super great exercise that strengthens…
