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
