Amazing week

Jogging it down: my week in review {}

You guysssss….. I had an awesome workout week! Like, stupendous. I feel amazing. And not just because I had good workouts… I also got my butt to bed on time every night and my eating was on like donkey kong. Not that I would know; those games were never my thing.


• 3.5 mile tempo run, 34:00 (9:50 pace)
Ugly hot run. I didn’t have a distance in mind (it was already so hot when I went out!) and I wanted to keep the pace under 10:00. Ran up a hill on the short walk home, too. Decent workout all around.

Weekend run {}

Fabulous start to my weekend, minus a gross run. C’est la vie.


• Pyramid style strength, 15:00
Sets of 25/5, 20/10, 15/15, 10/20, 5/25. Alternated pushups and weighted squats, then abs and back extensions (75 reps each, 300 total).


• Full-body cardio rep workout, 35:00

The 1000 Summer Cardio workout {Piloting Paper Airplanes}

This workout, but 50 reps each rather than 100.

• 100 reps various core exercises & 2:00 #plankaday

• 3–mile commute, bike


• Leg work + hill repeats, 30:00
– 40 each with weights: squats, back lunges R & L, sumo squats, side lunges R & L, dead lifts.
– x10 hill repeats.

• 3–mile commute, walk

Sport visor {}

Hey hey hey! Did I mention I finally got a sport visor? This girl is a little bit happy. Makes my hot runs 10x better when my face isn’t frying.


• Rest day! 3–mile commute, bike.

Stormy sky {}

Oh hello imposing line of rain clouds.


• Cardio HIIT, 1:00:00
Killer workout tonight! Not sure what got into me, but I had a ton of energy when I got home from the office. Punched out a great cardio/strength workout and felt awesome the whole time. I felt POWERFUL after this workout! And disgustingly sweaty….
– 12:00 cardio: [high knees, mountain climbers, squat jumps, jumping jacks] x3
– 3 rounds of this Melissa Bender Fitness workout (P.S. Love her stuff).

– Added 50 each pushups, dips, abs & back extensions.

• 3–mile commute, walk


• Morning yoga, some arm work and 3–mile commute, walk.

This weekend’s plans are up in the air. I have some work to do, but the weather is going to be perfect mid–70’s. There will either be a long run, a long bike ride with Jon OR maybe just maybe a night of camping.


Did your week rock too??
Any fun weekend plans?

    It was a good week. I’m still struggling with my throat and the humidity, but good things come to those who wait (and work hard), I’m guessing.

    We have an awesome retirement party for a friend tonight, and then we are hitting up training camp on Saturday and Sunday. I think I’m also going to pick up my new running shoes while we’re at it. Happy Friday!

      Bummer, I’m sorry you’re not feeling great to run! It is SO much harder to run and breathe well with the humidity. That’s why I’m giving myself a break from running if I want it and doing other workouts at home instead. Have a great weekend – and have fun with new shoes!

  2. I’ve had three great runs so far this week and I’ve had two good sessions in the gym doing legs/back and arms. Hopefully will get in one more run this week tomorrow! Nice job with your workouts 🙂
