Happy Friday! As you hopefully saw, this week Mar, Cynthia and I are linking up 5 fitness moments from our week! It’s a fun twist on our usual Friday Five and motivated me to make sure I did more than running this week — even though, mostly…that’s what I did! Be sure to link up your Friday Five post and check out a few new-to-you blogs!
Brrrr that was a cold run – but definitely a run I was proud of! 16 miles for the week’s long run – this run was awesome because Mar and I were just really in sync. It was also a Personal Distance Record for her, which I found super inspiring! I may or may not have danced in the last mile 🙂
Not the first, nor the last time I’ve planked in my office clothes 🙂
Sorry for the blurry quality of the above and below pics, but you get the idea – I’ve spent way more time on the treadmill that I’d like this week due to the snow and icy conditions of the street. Oh and because I need a break from running in subfreezing temperatures.
It’s been awhile since I’ve added real strength training work on to my routine post run. I did that twice this week – first with the kettlebell you see pictured above and next with the Nike Training Club App workout I did that is pictured below.
Speed work was done on the treadmill this week, as I couldn’t make it to the track. I wrote out the workout and placed it on the treadmill so I was constantly aware of what I was doing and that really helped. Still not my favorite piece of gym equipment, but it’s doable in a pinch. Then after running, I did a 15 minute long pilates workout curated by Gabby Douglas. It felt SO good to stretch out but by the time I finished this, I was tired! Early bedtime for the win 🙂
