Weekly Training Recap 2015: Week 3

Now that I have at least four races I am training for, I think it will be helpful for me to go back to posting my weekly workouts here on the blog. It will help me hold myself accountable as I go forward. I have added a lot of distance since having Emma Kate, but my times are not where I thought they would be almost four months postpartum, so I need some accountability! I get in a trap of getting the miles in but they are “junk miles” a lot of times.

Races planned:

RnR New Orleans

rnDisney Princess Half Marathon

LA marathon

Crescent City Classic 10k


This is what I did last week:

Sunday: Off

Monday: 3 mile treadmill run

Tuesday: 4 mile treadmill run

Wednesday: Off

Thursday: 4 miles on the treadmill

Friday: 35 minutes stationary bike, arm weights

Saturday: 7 mile taper run, Rock ‘n Roll New Orleans half marathon is next Sunday!


This next week will be toned down quite a bit since my race is on Sunday, but after that I have to get going again for my next three races!

QOTD: What is the next race on your calendar?

Weekly Recap: January Week 5


Last update of January, and it was a pretty darn good workout week to boot. I worked really hard, and even did a long run and some speed work. I am already working on one of my monthly goals to up my weights at the gym, and I was literally sore for days after last Monday’s body pump class. Here is what last week looked like in workouts:


Sunday: rest

Monday: Body pump one hour class, .5 miles run on TM

Tuesday: stationary bike 30 minutes

Wednesday: back and biceps, ran 3 miles speed work

Thursday: chest and tri’s, ran 6 miles on the TM

Friday: back and bi’s, 30 minutes stationary bike

Saturday: ran 10 miles

I am very happy with this effort, I got in almost 20 miles of running, and three days of cross training and lots of weights between body pump and lifting on my own.

This next week is going to look a little bit different because we will be at my parents house for the week because Bobby has some business in New Orleans, but I am still going to workout as much as possible!

QOTD: What is your favorite kind of fitness class to take? I am loving body pump!
