Lets see how I did for the week:
FIT WEEK IN REVIEW
Every day I do strength training - or at least I am supposed to. I sometimes skip it for a variety of reasons but mostly I do try to do it. The more I do it, the stronger my right hip gets and the better and more importantly, the faster I can run. On Monday, I just did bootcamp in evening like I do most Mondays. At this class, we did lots of running, burpees + planks on the ladder and step ups on the bench. We did this 5x through and then finished with some core. It was a really good workout. I love my bootcamp class and more importantly, I love the girls (and occasionally guy) that I get to do it with.
Tuesday saw me go for a run around my neighbourhood. I hate running around my neighbourhood. Like seriously hate with a passion to a point that it is kinda weird. I never run as far as I can or should or could. I get bored of my surroundings and turn around and go home. It mostly makes me lazy. I was wearing my wireless earbuds and they died half way through my run making it very bad and not to mention, as I was leaving my house that morning for my run, I jumped to avoid our sprinkler and rolled my left ankle. I thought at first it was going to be bad because it was quite painful but I was able to run on it and it felt ok. It was a little stiff the next morning but has felt fine ever since.
Because it was such a beautiful day outside, I brought out my roller, resistance band and kettle bell to stretch, roll and do another workout that is below.
Since I had already ran and my ankle was a little tender, I only ran through this once instead of the 3x I had written down. I love using my kettle bell, although it took me a long time to get here.
On Wednesday I normally have bootcamp but I had a volunteer meeting with the Calgary Marathon so I had to miss the evening session. I meant to go in the morning but I had gotten distracted and forgot to text Shannon for the morning location so I had to do a workout at home. I had spent a few hours at the beach that day and I was tired from being out in the sun so this is all I did that day. I repeated it 3x.
On Thursday, I headed to Fish Creek Provincial Park and ran 8km. It felt really good and my pace was 6:35/km which is really good for being more then 5km. My knee felt great and nothing tightened up the entire time and when I finished, nothing hurt. It was such a great, strange feeling hahahaha. I came home and rolled out and still no tightness. I could get used to this!!
This is the core workout I did when I got home from my run after I stretched. I only did this once through although it could easily be repeated if you wanted to do so.
FRIDAY, SATURDAY, SUNDAY
Then I hit a rut or more so, got out of routine. Friday the girls had no school and Greg was off work so they were home and I did no exercise. I went shopping and then out for supper. My sister arrived that afternoon which meant there was no exercise on Saturday either. I had planned on getting up early on Sunday and go running but it was pouring so hard, I couldn't be bothered to go run outside just for a training race. Had it been a race I would have, but not for a training run. I didn't even stretch or roll out. I did do lots of walking on Saturday and Sunday so that kinda helps out haha.
Well this week wasn't terrible as far as workouts as I did get 4 days in, I do hope to get at least 6 days in next week with even some light core work on the 7th day. We shall find out next Monday!!
