I felt really good about my workouts last week. My running mileage wasn’t too high, but I felt strong on all my runs and got in some really solid cross training. And I can tell my hamstrings and glutes are getting much stronger from the regular Pure Barre classes and the addition of Crossfit.
Last week’s workouts
M – Ran 4 miles, 29 minutes, 7:13 pace
T – Ran 3.15 miles, 23 minutes, 7:18 pace + Crossfit (workout details)
W – Ran 4.29 miles, 30 minutes, 6:59 pace
Th – Pure Barre
F – Top Tier CrossFit (workout details)
S – Ran 6.16 miles, 43 min, 7:00 pace (with fartleks, altering speed and incline + 5 min cool-down jog for an extra 0.57 miles @ 8:40 pace
S – tbd, maybe an easy run or Pure Barre…but more likely a rest day!
Total Mileage: 18.17
How I’m feeling: Pretty good! My right shin has been a little feisty on runs lately; not sure if it’s the addition of CrossFit and using new muscles or what.

Hokas are the complete opposite of Vibram FiveFingers. I’m not sure which is more hideous. Has anyone tried Hokas?? I’ve read glowing reviews but have never personally tried them on. (Thanks for the link Jill!)
