Travis: My goal for the week was to recover from being sick and to get in at least four runs. I met my running goal but am still dealing with a lingering cough that will not subside. I will start training hard again very soon but for now it’s just easy workouts for me.
Monday: I ran a little over 5 miles (7:46 pace) outside for the first time since November 1! It felt great to get out and breathe some fresh air. Midnight shift really puts a damper on outdoor running.
Tuesday : No workout.
Wednesday: 3.10 miles @ 7:54 pace in the middle of the night.
Thursday: 10.00 miles @ 6:53 pace on the treadmill…in the middle of the night. I was originally going to run a half marathon but I just didn’t have the legs after taking it easy since the NYC Marathon.
Friday: 3.61 miles @ 10:21 pace. This was a combination of walking and running to recover from the previous nights effort.
Saturday: No workout.
Sunday: 3.68 miles @ 8:30 pace.
Weekly total: 25.50 miles
Monday: 3 miles outside and 21 Day Fix lower fix. This was my first outdoor run since I can’t remember when! After this run I’m definitely going to need to get outside more. It kicked my butt after running on the treadmill for so long.
Tuesday: 21 Day Fix Pilates Fix + abs
Wednesday: 21 Day Fix Cardio Fix + abs
Thursday: 2 miles and 21 Day Fix Dirty 30
Friday: 21 Day Fix Plyo Fix. Friday was birthday date night! We went to a restaurant called the 1844 House. The food was incredible! It was nice to get away for a few hours.
I finished up my first round of the 21 Day Fix. I didn’t think to take measurements before hand but I ended the round down 8.5 lbs which is a win in my book! I love the workouts included in the program and plan to do another round after our vacation. Thankfully my in-laws have weights and a treadmill so I’ll be able to keep up with workouts there as well!
We’ll be hitting the road for Michigan this week. I’m beyond excited to be able to spend Christmas, New Years and the kids birthdays with both of our families. We haven’t been home for the holidays in 10 years so it’s LONG overdue!
