Longest six weeks ever.
Not really, but almost. I just can’t believe I went 6 loooong weeks without running! Thank goodness that’s over with–well, technically after my appointment today (Monday). You better believe I’m lacing up tonight! (Slowly, of course)
Anyway, I hadn’t recapped my last two weeks mainly because I’ve kept myself quite busy 😀
Tuesday-25 min bike, 60 sec plank (side ones too!)
Wednesday-25 min elliptical, 20 min bike, 60 sec plank
Thursday-7 miles on the bike, 60 sec plank
Friday-Arms video, 60 sec plank
Sat/Sun-60 sec plank
Monday-Core video, 30 min elliptical, 60 sec plank
Tuesday– 60 min w/ personal trainer
Wednesday-55 min spin class, glutes, 60 sec plank
Thursday-45 min swim, arms, 60 sec plank
Friday-45 min elliptical, 60 sec plank
Sat/Sun– 60 sec plank
Whew! I’ve definitely been using my newfound SAHM status to get to the gym. Luckily, my kids have adapted well to their “gym school” 😀
After I get the all clear, it’ll be all about slowly getting back into running shape. I’ve done my best to keep my cardio up and cross train so that the transition isn’t impossible. I’d like to be 13.1 ready for Phoenix 1/2 Marathon, which is over a month away. I’m not expecting PR miracles there, but I’d still like to do relatively well.
So happy to be back on track. Thank you guys so much for sticking with me on my running hiatus! Quite a few people have told me that I’ve done well getting my workout on despite not being able to run and the truth is, I just love working out. I love sweating. I love hearing my heart beat fast. I love the feeling of fatigue from a hard workout. It’s one of those things you either ‘get’ or you don’t. I love that you guys do ❤
