Running Wild: Weekly Wrap-Up

It just occurred to me that I wanted to start blogging again about my weekly runs and workouts. I am just loving the workouts I am doing right now and my running is slowly, ever so slowly, eeking towards the three miles at a time mark, so in my mind, that's starting to get blog worthy! 

Week of Jan 14-20

Total miles run: 5.5

Monday: Workout with trainer and 10 min elliptical

I am going to start writing down more, maybe on dailymile, what my workouts with my trainer look like. Since this was more than a week ago, I don't remember it very well. And can I pause for a minute and complain about how dailymile logs your workouts by how many days ago they were from today? Drives me crazy! Why don't they say the date??? 

Tuesday: 2 mile run

It was so nice to be outside. These days I run outside maybe one day per week and I always dread it before hand (the cold! the wind! ack!) but then when I am out there I love it! I don't run with my Garmin anymore. I probably will wear it again when I need to track distance, but right now I know how far to run from house for each run. I won't be tracking times very often, if at all, for the rest of the year. Or that's my goal at least!

Wednesday: bootcamp

My friend Sarah and I finally got back out to the track for our bootcamp. I was so happy I could do the warm-up laps and run the stairs again, too! We did a lot of fun stuff, including an exercise from Pink's trainer that was a burpee with a shuffle. 

Thursday: 1 mile run plus workout with trainer 

Again, I don't remember much about the workout. That reminds me, I need my trainer to start giving me copies of the workouts . . . no wonder I stand around like a deer in headlights when I am at the gym to work out on my own. 

Friday: Rest day

Saturday: 2.5 mile run

This was my weekend long run and my longest run since the end of October. Hooray! It was fun. 

Sunday: 20 mins elliptical plus 20 mins strength

I did this strength workout on my own. I ventured in to the weight room for the first time solo, which was a little intimidating. I don't mind being a "wimpy girly lifter" but I am just don't want to look like I don't have a clue what I am doing in there. On this day I did thrusters and halos, which I think are hard and fun. I also did some ab work and some pull-ups on the assisted pull-up machine (the gravitron). 


  1. Glad the running is coming along! I don't think you are a wimpy girly lifter simply by the fact that you used terms like halos and thrusters, and sounded like you knew what you were talking about.

    1. Glad throwing the names of the moves around impressed you ;) haha! I am trying to learn, trying to look like I belong in the weight room. It's intimidating!
