Running/ Workouts

The Weekender + Last Week’s Workouts

Heyyyy! Me again! And I’ve got some links that I’ve been gathering and saving up for weeks. The weekends kept getting away from me and I hadn’t shared links for a while, so here we go! 

The Weekender

  • This inspired a total overhaul of my instagram use. 
  •  I’m kind of intrigued by this one exercise that will supposedly dramatically improve my running. Anyone tried it before?
  •  You CAN take great photos with your iPhone in the dark –> Here’s how and it’s genius. 
  •  These girls from Nashville are so cute and talented! 


Last week’s workouts

S – rest (I was in DC and some of the girls did a bootcamp. Allison, Annie the Bulldog and I supervised. 🙂 )


T – 3.5 mile run + weights

W – 5.5 mile run

Th – 5 mile run

F – intervals + upper body weights (workout details posted here. This was a GREAT workout!)

S – rest (although I think cleaning counts as a workout!)

A few of you asked on my last post how I increased my running pace by so much. Here is the post I wrote about how I increased my running speed. I’m going to keep thinking to see if I think of anything else I’ve done since I wrote that post that I think has helped. But I still stand by everything in that post!  If you’ve been reading for a while you can see from that post that my pace and PRs have improved even since I wrote that just 18 months ago! When I wrote that, my half PR was 1:42 and now it’s 1:34, and I’ve cut over 30 seconds off my 5K time. I think the biggest factors still are #1 and #4 – training with faster runners (for me, this is John!) and intervals! 

Hope your week gets off to a great start! Let me know if you have any specific questions about increasing your pace, or want more details about anything!

Happy running!

    Nice post Teri, I’ve moved my routine from longer distance to high intensity intervals and have noticed quite a big difference, will definitely be trying the mango peeling technique!
