Fitness Recap April 29-May 5

Fitness Recap April 29 – May 5, 2013

Well last week I got back into the swing of things for the most part. I am posting this to help keep myself on track and to keep a record of what I am doing for work outs and if I am changing and what is working for me. This is NEVER a place when I want to compare myself to anyone else, or to make anyone feel bad or poorly about them selves if they have a different number of workouts in a week. We ALL have different goals for our workouts and health and you need to do what works for YOU 🙂

I do love to hear what others do because it gives me ideas of new things to try! For me I need to keep changing my workouts to stay challenged and to not get tired of doing the same things over and over again.

On that note, here is a little recap of the week.

I took the twins I nanny for on at least 1 walk a day. Some days we managed to get 2 walks in 🙂

Monday – I took a break from anything major as I needed a rest from the 10k and playing volleyball on Sunday. The twins and I did get a slow walk to the park about a mile.

Tuesday – As I am really starting to get back into running I am working on taking the twins out a few times a week for a walk/jog. Today was 3.55 miles 🙂

Wednesday – I was feeling good today and managed 4.6 miles 🙂

Thursday – 1 mile walk with the twins and body pump! I love that class 🙂 I also did a 20 min speed drill of 1.25 miles. As much as I dislike the treadmill, sometimes cranking up the speed is just what I need!

Friday – 1 mile walk with the twins. Zumba party! I was doing Zumba really regularly for several months and I really enjoyed it. Sadly my gym canceled one of the classes I was able to participate it, and the 2 others that I could make it to are not my favorite. Needless to say I have been looking for other ways to get my cardio in, and getting back into running has come at the perfect time!

Saturday – 1 mile walk

Sunday – Rest day. And a lot of cleaning 🙂

What do you do for your workouts?  I love hearing about the ways people challenge themselves!

    Hey there!
    I have signed up for something new and scary!! BOOTCAMP…I took a class Saturday morning, to see what it’s like..and loved it! I was unable to move for two days after, though…I had a misconception – I felt invincible after running my Half inJanuary..I know. It’s May. Thats the great thing, though! I have felt invincible from January thru May!! Anyway, I’m not…sooo it’s time for something to help me run thru the summer and this just may be it! It was FUN! 🙂

      Ahh YAY! I have yet to do a real boot-camp! I bet it would be fun, and challenging but it scares me a little. I will for sure have to get myself into one of those soon! I love that there is always something new to try to keep us challenged! And YOU should feel invincible! A half marathon is such a great accomplishment! Keep it up! 🙂
