Weekly Workouts Recap: Back to it!

After my post-marathon rest week last week, I was going a little stir crazy. It was good to get back to cross-training and then running again this week. Though I only ran 8+ miles, they were some good ones.
Monday and Tuesday I did SarahFit's Makeover Workout on YouTube. I really enjoyed that workout a lot and will definitely be doing it, and others, again.

Wednesday I rode our stationary bike for 35 minutes and got a pretty good workout out of that.

And Thursday I finally got back out on the road. I didn't wear a Garmin because I was afraid I would push myself too hard, but in reality it was just the perfect run. I wore my Polar FT4 and ran for 30 minutes. I know I was keeping a pretty solid pace, though it's a shame I have no idea how far or fast I went. I guess I can't count it for my 1,000 miles in 2013.

Saturday I ran 5 miles at 9:38 pace. It was another good run, and I was glad to be back. I wore one of my favorite lululemon skirts and my marathon shirt. It was a little warm for long sleeves, but I wanted to wear that shirt. I'm sure you can imagine why.

Today is cross-training. If you have followed these posts before you've definitely seen that I'm not good at getting in cross-training, but things have changed. Now that I'm working with Mary, she has explained how important cross-training is and how necessary it is that I get it in. So I'm either going to do a weight circuit or a DVD of TurboFire later in the day.

Update: I did TurboFire Fire 30 then Tone 30!
How were your workouts this week? Link up with me, Kat, and Genna anytime this week to share!

I would defiantly count that run towards your 1,000. Maybe underestimate and say 3? Love the skirt on you! Love the length!

I agree with Genna - you should definitely count that three miler towards your 1000. I'm so impressed that you're back to running! My husband is still recovering from his marathon back in October. So, basically, you're awesome.

Love your blog.

I love your shirt, I wear mine on runs a lot too. I reminds me of what I accomplished!
I am trying to be good about getting in some cross training. I wrote it all in my new marathon schedule for this week. Fingers Crossed.

Allie said...

Great job on running this week! I'm pretty sure I wore my marathon shirt on my first run back too! I love your new watch, I need to get better about wearing my hrm during xt. I just have to remember where I left it!

Beka said...

I love my gasparilla shirt from last year, I actually wear it pretty frequently!

Great job on the workouts and getting in that cross training!

Asha said...

Just found your link-up thru Lauren, I'll definitely be linking up in the future :) Love the skirt!

p.s. - I'm so nervous about cross-training but agree its important. Let me know what you think about TurboFire, I'm trying to find a good DVD that I can do at home for now.
