Head to toes

Jogging it down: my week in review {PilotingPaperAirplanes.com}

I moved my body regularly this week! Much of last week into the weekend we were dog sitting at a friend’s house, completely throwing off any semblance of routine I had started to build. But we had a dog for almost 5 days and free laundry. This week I was determined to manage several good workouts. I succeeded, thank you.

The breakdown:


Treadmill speed workout: 4.0 miles, 40:35 (10:10 pace)
Lest the 10:00 pace fool you, this is a serious workout (although, that’s still a pretty quick pace for me, I can’t lie). Of the 4 miles, 2 are the long warm up and cool down for some steady run work, and 2 are the sprint intervals. After a few weeks of doing this and similar workouts, I can definitely say my legs are feeling more comfortable with a speedier stride. Hopefully I’ll see that translate to longer runs come spring!

Strength: 30 reps each lat pulls, bent rows, seated presses, squats, lunges and abs work in plank. I switch the weight every 10 reps.


Yoga, 1:00:00
A little sore all over and needing a good, slow, yoga workout. Usually I have a goal each time I come to the mat; work on the warrior series, or hip openers or upper body strength. Today I spent a lot of time opening my back. I really want to catch my feet in King Pigeon II and Lord of the Dance poses; after months of working toward it, I’m so close.

And it happened:

I cannot express how proud I am! It was very a specific goal; not simply to strengthen my back in regular yoga, but to complete these two postures. And I did it!


Light yoga, ~30:00
Wednesday’s are traditionally a day off for me, but I was in the mood for some light yoga while watching TV. I stretched out and warmed up enough to again reach my feet in king pigeon II – I had to prove it wasn’t a one time thing!


Treadmill hill workout: 1.81 miles, 25:00 (13:57 pace)
I brought someone with me today! Jon hit the weights, row machine and some treadmill time when I finished. I worked my ass – literally – on a hill workout. The last time I did this 25:00 set (removing Set 4 from the workout I posted this week), I completed 1.74 miles. That extra little .05 I eked out at the end feels like a ton. Which is good because I had to slow to a fast walk for a few minutes of the highest incline sets. You win some, you lose some I guess.

Today will be an evening off and tomorrow I will sleeeeep in. I’d like to fit a longer run tomorrow but I won’t be disappointed if I get into other Saturday things and it doesn’t happen. Then Sunday is Super Bowl time!! Looking forward to a party with new friends.

P.S. Last chance for the New Year discount! I can take on 2 or 3 more projects. Go here.
