Last Week’s Workouts

Happy Sunday! I started my morning with some Udi’s gluten-free vanilla muffins and coffee and tried some new-to-me creamer today too. I never like almond milk in my coffee because it gets all weird with like little chunks…hard to explain. But this creamer didn’t have that issue – two thumbs up!

I’ve been in a funk most of the day. I knew if I’d just get up and be productive I’d feel better, but I let myself veg on the couch for a bit. I bought season 2 of “Homeland” recently so I’ve been making my way through that. After two episodes, I dragged myself out for a 5 mile run. It was about 11:30, and while the temperate was only 75*, it was REALLY humid. I felt strong the first 3 miles (averaging a 7 min/mile pace) but I slowed down to about a 7:30 min pace by the end. After my run, I took Maizey on a short easy jog to cool-down and get her some activity. We’ve both been kind of pooped ever since. 🙂

My fridge was almost completely empty so I went grocery shopping ($130 later…) and really needed some new sauté pans, toothbrush heads for my must-have Sonicare and hangers so I went to Target ($100 later…). So, clearly, lots of excitement up in here today. 🙂 Anyway, here’s last week’s workouts!

S – Pure Barre (I think?)

M – Pure Barre

T – 4 mile run, intervals (no structure, just let my music guide it). I averaged a 7:15 minute pace

W – Hot Vinyasa Yoga @ the Charlotte Athletic Club (I was sore for days after this class!)

Th – 5 mile run, intervals (again, no structure just let my music guide it). I averaged a 7 minute pace.

F – rest

S – Pure Barre

What was your toughest workout last week? The yoga class felt hard because I didn’t have my own mat (hence I was slipping everywhere) and I was wearing running shorts and a t-shirt which is just a disaster for me in yoga. Sweaty slippery legs made twists difficult and my shirt was falling in my face. So the workout was difficult from an equipment standpoint. It was probably the hardest physically too, just because my body isn’t used to yoga. It felt great to be back.

    My toughest workout was actually my Wednesday easy day. I had a tough workout Tuesday so by Wednesday my legs were ready for an easy day and I had 7 miles to do. I forgot how tough marathon training can be sometimes!

      Marathon training is SO tough. I keep kind of starting to train and then back off once i remember how much I dread the long runs! Any tips?

    Fun- I’m a member of Charlotte Athletic Club! I got busy at work and didn’t make it Wednesday but maybe I will run into you if you’re in town again. The Power X classes (their version of boot camp) are pretty good too.

      Oh cool!! That’d be fun to meet! I’ll definitely check out the Power X classes. I’ll be back in a month or so I think!

    Wow! I am excited about that creamer! Where did you get it? It isn’t even listed on their website.
    And my workouts for the week were non existent. I am having a hard time kicking the sinus infection that went down into my chest and won’t leave… 🙂

      I thought I got it at Whole Foods, but it may have been something they sent me. I buy their products and occasionally get products shipped to me so I get them mixed up! I know it’s a new product but it should be available across the country soon!

    My toughest workout last week was moving out of one 3rd story apartment and into another!

    I get what you mean about almond milk in coffee. It is very disgusting looking. I find that I do not have the same problem with coconut milk, but it does tend to be fattier.

    My workouts have been pretty bland lately. I did a 3 mile run on Friday but I wilted in the heat and slowed my pace for the last 1/2 mile. Yuck.

      I’m glad you know what I’m talking about with almond milk. It tastes fine but I can’t drink it because of the way it looks. Coconut milk is much better, agreed!

      I’m so over this summer heat. I’m ready for cool morning runs.

    I’ve read your blog for about a year now- never really commenting, just a secret fan. The past months or so I have been training for my first half ever! It has been a mental and physical challenge to say the least but I have grown a new appreciation for this site. It helps me, envisions me, and motivates me. I am sloooowww and I walk sometimes but I am building. I hope one day to become a great runner. So, just thank you. I really am growing because of what you are doing here.

      Thank you so much for your comment Chelsea! It’s hearing comments like yours that makes me love blogging and encourages me to keep doing it. Keep at it with running – you’ll keep making improvements! 🙂

    I’ve been doing some of the different circuit workouts from Popsugar and those have been leaving me sore the next day!

    I completely get you on the almond milk/coffee thing! If it’s what we have I use it anyway but I prefer the almond milk/coconut milk blend. It doesn’t seem as separate-y.
    My hardest workout was yesterday. I got dressed in running clothes first thing and told myself I was absolutely going to get a trail run in. Well, I got it done during the hottest part of a humid afternoon! It was my first trail run in months. I had to stop and walk a few times. but I felt so good afterwards!
