We're back at another Sunday, and not just any Sunday. Today is my last day off before I go back to work tomorrow. While I'm excited to get back to work, I'm also wishing I had a few extra weeks off. I sure am enjoying the time home. I've been spending quality time with TJ and the kids and getting in some great workouts. Speaking of, here's this week's workouts.
PiYo:Core. It was definitely a little tougher than I thought but a pretty good way to spend a Sunday.
I officially began half marathon training with a 3 mile run. I finished the day's workout with some PiYo: Upper Define.
It was new workout day!! PiYo: Buns…wow, what can I say! That workout kick some serious booty, but there was something about it I really liked and am looking forward to doing again.
It another 3 miler today that wasn't bad at all. I maintained my pace, which isn't back to where I was before taking my little running hiatus but it was still a good run, and fir the first time, I had negative splits. Wahoo!!! I came home to do another round of PiYo: Core for the week to round out my day.
It took it easy today. Knowing the weekend was going to be full of tougher and longer workouts, after some PiYo: Lower Define, I called my workout for the day done.
Today was a rest day from PiYo, but I had another 3 miles on the schedule for my half training. I actually didn't want to go. For whatever reason, I just wasn't feeling it, but I went anyway, and I'm glad I did. It went really well and I felt fantastic. It left me with a good feeling for Saturday's long run.
Phew! My first long run of half training; a good 5 miler. My target pace was 11:19-11:40. I didn't hit but I pushed myself and I was faster than any of the other runs I had this week, so I was quite happy with it. Once I got home, I still had PiYo to do. Sweat was up today, and boy did I sweat. LOL!! My legs were on fire after the workout. Between a 5 mile run and Sweat, I had some shaky legs when I was done. LOL!
How was your week of workouts? Did you try anything new? How about start training for a fall race?
