Friday Round Up — October 4, 2013

Happy Friday Morning Everyone — another week in the books.


I’ve got to run to a resource fair for work this morning, but I didn’t want to forget about you all, of course.

I wasn’t feeling too hot last night, but did get some good R and R, which helped relieve my headache. Still not 100%, but definitely showing improvement.

I knew I needed to take it easy, because it is a rest day but also because I haven’t been feeling great.  A cold nasty morning here in Denver was perfect for some yoga.

Workout of the Morning:  Seated Hatha Yoga

It was exactly what I needed and helped to start my day on a balanced food 🙂

And as for my workouts of the week, they may not have gone exactly as planned, but I did fit everything in, which is what matters most to me :).

Workout Round of Up the Week:

Here is what was planned for the week on Monday:

  • Monday:  10 miles bike, 30 minutes strength
  • Tuesday: 5 mile run
  • Wednesday: STRENGTH / Yoga
  • Thursday: 5 mile run
  • Friday: REST
  • Saturday: 13 mile run — EESH
  • Sunday: Recovery run/bike

And here’s how everything panned out:

  • Monday: 10 miles stationary bike and 30 minutes strength training
  • Tuesday: 5 mile treadmill speed run
  • Wednesday: 5 mile outdoor hilly run

My Maid of Honor is in town for the weekend, so I am planning on meeting up with her whenever she is free, which also means I may need to be a little flexible with this weekends work outs.  Quite frankly, I’m OK with that.  As long as I get some miles in,  I’m prioritizing Zoe :).

And that, my friends, has been my week!   Another one in the books 🙂

Question of the Morning:  Did you have a good week?  What was your favorite workout?

  1. I feel special 🙂 I have been so busy this week that I haven’t ran since saturday, though I had a GREAT run saturday, so I’m still happy about that. I’m going to run on the treadmill today (since its snowing here!!!) And tomorrow zach and I are going to run at boyd lake which he says is beautiful, so I’m really looking forward to that!

  2. I hope you’re getting better by the minute! A question for you: what benefits do you get out of yoga? I’m horrible at sitting still and relaxing, but everyone and their mother is in love with yoga and is telling me to try it!

  3. We’ve had a rough week here 😦 We’ve all been sick and I haven’t worked out once…other then walking. I’m pumped for the weekend as I’m in a soccer tournament (indoors) so I think I’ll get my fill of workouts in! Have a great weekend!

  4. I was with Piper’s Run this week, but this morning was a nice run in sunny, cold weather, weights, and yoga. Had to make up for my missed sessions. 🙂
