Workouts 4/26 – 5/2

Three days of strength training? Who am I? Whenever I’m home I really enjoy going to my mom’s class (she’s a personal trainer and group fitness instructor!) so I was glad to have been around on one of the days she teaches.

As for running, today (Sunday) I am running the Wings For Life World Run as part of a campaign with Puma and FitFluential so I took Saturday off. I’ll be back with a race recap Tuesday!

I also did my planks as part of Jen’s Plank A Day Challenge. We’ve only had two days so far, so here are the pictures for Friday and Saturday. I plan to post the previous week of photos next Sunday. I need to work on lowering my butt more, especially in the second picture.

Day 1: Max hold full plank. I did it for 2 minutes 34 seconds. Day 2: Full plank cheetah crunches. 3 x 60 seconds

5/1: Max hold full plank. I did it for 2 minutes 34 seconds. 5/2: Full plank cheetah crunches. 3 x 60 seconds

Sunday: 5.25 miles with my dad. We ran outside and even though we started around 7 a.m., it wasn’t enough to beat the heat. It was one of those runs where I was still sweating after I showered.

Monday: 25 minutes of weights. I did mainly back and chest moves.

Tuesday: My mom’s 30 minute weight class. I requested triceps and shoulders :). There were 3 circuits with 4 moves in each. We did each exercise for one minute and repeated it twice before moving on to the next circuit.

Wednesday: 3.5 miles. I ran 15 minutes out and 15 minutes back. I was happy to get in a quick run before traveling back to Miami.

Thursday: Hot yoga. I hadn’t been to yoga in a while and the class was a good mix of challenging and relaxing. We did this fun plyometric sequence where we transitioned from chair to boat pose, back to chair and jumped up. We repeated fast for 10 reps.

Friday: 4.5 miles + 20 minutes of weights. I started my run at 9:45 a.m. That’s 9:45 NOT 6:45 like normal. We had a cold front toward the end of the week and the weather was perfect.

Saturday: Off

Happy Sunday! xo

    I love her plank challenge! When we were supposed to see how long we could plank for the first day to have a baseline, I was shocked by how short mine was haha! I reallyyy have been slacking on core work recently. Hopefully this’ll help me get back on track :)

      I used to be able to hold for 4 minutes but now 2 minutes is my sweet spot. I read somewhere that the length doesn’t matter as much, just consistency. I guess that’s good!

    I know those after sweat runs…It happens to me all the time in Houston during the summer. High-Fives on all the strength training! :)
