Wild Workout Wednesday!

I am back! Yay!  I am feeling SO much better than I have been the past 2 weeks or so.  I was able to get back to the gym last week a few times and boy I was feeling the burn!  Taking almost 2 weeks off due to illness was def not in the plans (like it ever is), so I was thrilled to be back!  My voice is almost back to normal.  Another good thing!  I did NOT like sounding like I did while sick.
I am linking up again today with Annmarie from The Fit Foodie Mama, Angelena Marie from  Angelena Marie: Happy, Healthy & Balanced , Michelle at Fruition Fitness  and Nicole from Fitful Focus for another Wild Workout Wednesday recap!  IMG_1700

The past week this is what went down.  I will share from last Monday since I was off the week before.

Monday- Body pump- it was a new release and OH my goodness it was HARD!  Mix that with having some time off and I could hardly walk on Tuesday.


Tuesday- 2 elliptical miles and an hour of Zumba- it felt nice to stretch out my muscles a bit
Wednesday- Body pump again with a short elliptical warm-up.  I missed Zumba due to my car dying and needing a new battery!  I was bummed but thankful I was safe and able to get a new battery quickly.
Thursday- Body pump once again- I feel like I am getting a hang of the new release and my muscles were not as sore as they were on Monday.
Friday- 5 miles mixed between the treadmill and elliptical and piyo class- Needless to say, I was DRENCHED in sweat!  It felt good to be back at piyo


Saturday & Sunday- We had many friends in town so we ended up walking several miles to/from & at the Zoo on Sat and short walk on Sunday. 
Monday- Back to body pump plus a mile jog
Tuesday- More Zumba!  Was a blast with my friends and figuring out the new moves to the new songs we are doing in class!
Wednesday – Body pump this morning and used higher weights for a few of the tracks. Then I tackled some sprints on the mill.  I was having a hard time getting my breathing down today so I only did 10 sprint cycles instead of 20.

What is on tap-
Thursday- Body pump and hopefully 2-3 miles.
Friday- Piyo and a run outside
Saturday- Walk/jog outside- 5-6 miles
Sunday- Walk/rest day
Monday- Body Pump & maybe piyo and zumba.  Depends how I am feeling
Tuesday- 2-3 miles and Zumba
Wednesday- Body pump and yoga (this is for my teacher Andrea!!)

Half marathon training update- Well, it is a little over 4 weeks till the race.  Being sick really threw my training for a loop, so I have been trying to play catch up.  I was feeling a little stressed about the timing and was chatting with my training buddy.  She reminded me I can switch race distances if need be.  That made me feel better.  Considering my lack of consistent training and my hip issues, I will decide in the next 2 weeks what I will do.  I need to remind myself that it is NOT a bad thing to change if my body is saying it is NOT ready for the half.  There will always be another race!

Well, that’s the scoop!

    Yeah! Welcome back!!

    Great week and looks like you are going to knock this week out too!b Boom!!

    Listen to your body and make the best decision about your race based on how you are feeling. No need to be stressed!!

    There is no shame in changing your race distance if your body isn’t feeling prepared- better to rock the race rather than injure yourself in the long run (haha, pun intended! ;))
