Happy Sunday! For the first time this summer I’m not dreading Sunday evening because I’m done with my internship and can sleep in tomorrow morning. Anyone else get those Sunday night blues? These next two weeks will be a welcomed break before I head back for school.
On the workout front, this week was pretty great. I felt strong during every workout and I fit in 2 (maybe 3 if I go today) yoga practices. What’s kind of been lacking lately is strength training and cardio other than running (aka spinning…I kind of need to get back into that because I go back to teaching soon). But, you can’t always do it all and right now, what I’m doing feels pretty darn good.
Monday: 3.25 + 10 minutes weights (I did 10-1 reps of KB swings, KB upright rows and push ups)
Wednesday: 6 miles (4/6 miles under 8 min mile pace…good for me!)
Thursday: Orange Theory. It was a “tornado” workout which meant equal time on the treadmill, rower and in the weight room. It was less running than normal and overall an easier workout. Wasn’t worth getting up at 5:30, in my opinion. (2.25 miles + weight circuit)
Saturday: 12 miles. I was nervous about the weather since last weekend’s heat was not fun, but I was pleasantly surprised. Even though I would have loved for it to be 10 degrees cooler, it didn’t affect me much and I felt strong the entire time. It’s getting me more excited for the marathon. 3 months from yesterday!
Sunday: Hopefully yoga

The tornado workout is something I’d like to attempt when I can go back into cardio!

For the first time I also didn’t have the Sunday blues. I quit my job last week to become a stay at home mom. I still have a part time nights and Sunday’s job though so I may be getting the Saturday blues now! Your workouts look great. I’m slowly getting back into the gym.
Thanks, Ashley! Haha having the Saturday blues would be new to me, too!
