Workout Recap & Weekly Reads #3

First off, I want to wish my dad (and all of yours) a Happy Father’s Day! Dad, thank you for being an incredible role model, football pal and running partner (**and for helping fund my watermelon addiction). Only for you would I stay up past my bedtime to watch hockey :) Love you!

Just popping in to recap my workouts and share some good links I came across this week. Workouts were pretty similar to last week but no complaints because I’m feeling great.

Workout Recap 6/9-6/15

Monday- 4 mile run with my dad before work. Nothing special but it was a good way to start off the week.

Tuesday- Rest

Wednesday- Orange Theory before work. I ran about 3.25 miles during the treadmill portion of the class, which included killer sprints on a hill. The weight room included a 500 m row, bodyweight moves and abs.

Thursday- Weights. I focused on chest and shoulders today doing lots of push-ups, kettle bell swings and chest presses.

Friday- Orange Theory before work. The star of today’s workout was a timed 1-mile run. We warmed up for 5 minutes and then ran our fastest mile. I came in at about 7 minutes, which is fast for me (someone who doesn’t love speed work). After the run we went to the weight room for a few rounds of work and then hopped back on the treadmill for another 12ish minutes of running. 3.2 miles overall.

Saturday- Body Pump. Saturday morning is the only time I can make it to Body Pump. Taking advantage of it because when training starts Saturday Body Pump will be replaced with long runs.

Sunday- Hopefully a run with my dad. I’d prefer to run outside, but if he picks the treadmill I will oblige :)
