Weekly Workout Recap: May 2013 Week 3

Another workout week is behind us! I am happy to say I did a good job of getting back on track after vacation.


I worked out six days this week, and did a good job of varying things up. I even got in a long run, which I haven’t done since March! Sadly, it’s already starting to get really warm here (it was 85 during my Saturday MORNING run!) So I need to get acclimated, and fast. I spent all day yesterday guzzling water and Gatorade because I sweat so much on my run. I felt really accomplished afterwards though. Ok, so here is what I did this week!

Sunday: rest

Monday: 3 mile run, chest and tri’s

Tuesday: 2 mile power walk on 7.0 incline, back bi’s and abs

Wednesday: 3 mile run

Thursday: 45 minutes stationary bike, chest and tri’s

Friday: workout DVD

Saturday: 6 mile run


I am hoping to do a long run of 7 miles this next weekend, and we will be sure to start a little earlier in the morning before it gets too hot! Have a fabulous Sunday everyone. Rest day for this gal.

*Don’t forget about my Disney swag bag giveaway or my $100 visa giftcard giveaway!

Claim Your Journey

Happy February! I hope you all had an amazing first month of 2013!!! Have you ever heard of Claim Your Journey? You’re in luck, it’s what I am sharing about today.

I have known Brandon from Claim Your Journey for over a year. We both ran Rouge Orleans last year, and I have seen him at several races since. When he asked me awhile back to be a Claim Your Journey Ambassador, I of course said yes! I already sport the Run Louisiana shirts, and I love the whole movement and am excited to officially be a part of it.
