Happy Easter! It feels really weird not being home for Easter Weekend (first time ever), but I’m planning to make the most of the day. My mom sent me my Easter basket in the mail last week and I’ve been saving it to open Sunday morning (I’m writing this on Saturday). My sister and I joke that our Easter baskets are always better than Christmas gifts. I think it’s just our level of expectations.
As for workouts, this week was pretty good. Nothing too special except for my run Saturday.
Now, my Easter gift to you…not one but TWO selfies. I know, I’m too nice.
Sunday: 80 minute walk. I’ve been making Friday and Sunday my “long walk” days. The weather isn’t too hot yet (if I go before noon) and I spend time talking to my family or listening to podcasts. I think I covered a little over 5 miles.
Monday: 4 miles + planks
Tuesday: 3 miles + strength workout. I was short on time this morning but I wanted to run and do strength training. I compromised by breaking up my workout to make sure I didn’t get lazy on either end. I liked this workout and definitely got my heart rate up during the speed portion. My hamstrings were really sore on Wednesday after the RDL’s.
1 mile warm-up
4 rounds of the following (20 reps for strength segment):
400 meters @ 8.0, 8.1, 8.2, 8.3 (each round I increased speed)
Push-ups (did them on my knees for the last round)
1 mile cool down.
Thursday: 5.25 miles
Friday: 1 hour walk. I didn’t track my mileage but I’m guessing around 4 miles.
Saturday: 10 miles. I did 3 before meeting up with my friends and we did 7 together. Slow pace, good conversation. We ran one of my favorite loops and stopped for a selfie at the Biltmore hotel. Couldn’t ask for a better way to start my day!
Hope you have a happy Easter/Passover/Sunday! xo
