workout recap: week of 05.01.11

in Last Week's Workouts

Another week, gone already?  Time sure does fly.  My goals for May 1-7 were:

  • running:  Let’s shoot for that 10-15 miles again this week, shall we?
  • racing:  I’m running the Tulip Time 10k on Saturday with a goal of 65 minutes.
  • strength:  3 sessions of the 100 push up challenge, 1 upper body, 1 lower body
  • yoga:  Practice 2 times

What went down was:

  • Sunday: 30 minute yoga session (via Biggest Loser Weight Loss Yoga DVD)
  • Monday: upper body strength,  Zumba + 100 push-up challenge (Week 1, Day 3)
  • Tuesday:  a tough hot yoga session at the Yoga Hothouse
  • Wednesday:  breaking in new shoes on a 2.0 mile run
  • Thursday:  a slower than I’d like 3.6 mile run + 100 push-up challenge (redo of Week 1, Day 3)
  • Friday:  rest (pre-race day!)
  • Saturday:  Tulip Time 10k + 100 push-up challenge (Week 2, Day 1)

I finally feel like I’m truly getting back into the swing of things, fitness-wise.  Out of all my goals for the week, the only things I didn’t do were a lower body strength training session and finish yesterday’s 10k in my goal time.  Not too shabby if I do say so myself!

Speaking of the 10k, I’m feeling pretty unsure about what I should do about this Saturday’s River Bank Run.  I’m currently registered for the 25k but with as little running as I’ve done in the past several weeks, I just don’t know that I have the 15.5 miles in me right now.  At this point, I can’t switch until the expo on Friday, so I’m going to see how the week goes and decide then.  Decisions, decisions.

I haven’t done a considerable amount of strength training yet, but I feel like I can already see and feel a difference in my arms!  Whether it’s just imagined or truly there, I feel really encouraged by it and it makes me want to do more!  I’d love to have some rockin’ arms once swimsuit season rolls around in another month or so!

With another week under my belt, here’s my goals for the next 7 days:

  • running:  run 15-20 miles
  • racing:  if I drop down to the 10k, improve my time from the Tulip Time Run; if I stick with the 25k, finish!
  • strength:  3 sessions of the 100 push-up challenge; 2 upper body sessions
  • yoga:  practice 2 times

Here’s to another great week!
