Workouts – Last Week Today – September 18

fontover_201671013354641-1.jpgI am in my 10th week of training for the Houston Half! It was a great week of running.

This week, I began to incorporate bodyweight exercises and yoga into my routine. Keeping up the foam rolling after each run.

Here’s how my week shook out:

Sunday – 10 miles easy.


Monday – Body weight exercises (consisting of push-ups, squats, chair dips, lunges, bridges)

Tuesday – Yoga – 30 minute workout with twists

Wednesday – Body weight exercises

Thursday – 5 miles – 6 x 800 (4:46/4:39/4:38/4:37/4:45/4:33) with 1 mile w/up, c/down.

Friday – 4 miles easy with Anam.

Saturday – 6 miles easy.

Total Miles = 25

Check out this cool medal from Level Up Runs. It’s for the “I Solemnly Swear That I Am Up To No Good” Harry Potter themed virtual run. I will be running it with my neice virtually. You can save 10% on registration by 7sing code SAVE10.

    Great workout week and cool medal! I was tempted to do the 9 3/4K virtual race!

    Sounds like a great week! Yoga twist poses always feel so good!

    Sounds like a very solid week! I was really missing my yoga last week.

      Thanks! I tend to overlook yoga, but then wonder why I don’t do it more often once I get back to it.

    You had a great week with seriously impressive intervals and mileage too! I saw that medal. I had already decided to pass on the next race but with that medal it’s awfully hard! That’s cool your niece will also being running it. Thanks for linking, Vicki!

    Holy moly girl that’s some great training! No rest days though? I need a rest day each week or my legs fatigue so much more quickly. My San Jose half is in about a week and after looking at your training plan, I’m starting to wonder if I’m not running enough… only about 4 times a week totaling about 20 miles this past week. Ah well, it’s just for fun.
    That virtual run sounds fun!

      I like to run 4 days a week as well. I’ve decided that I need to put the bodyweight exercises on my shorter run days so that I have at least one rest day. I was exhausting myself.

      I’m sure you’ll do great at your half!!

    Great week Vicki! I do love my strength training exercises and yes my foam roller! I think both will help us in our upcoming half’! Thanks for linking up with us!
