Weekly Wrap.

Monday: Running.  Interrupted. I started out on one course, but after a mile it became clear the whole run was going to be a slogfest so I turned around and ran back to my car.  The road I was running on had drifted over and it was just over my ankles.  It was also a little crusty on top, so I would break through the crust and then slide on the soft snow underneath.  Not sure even why I lasted as long as I did. Stubborn I guess.  2.2 miles, and then I drove 3ish miles and started out on a road that had been drove on a lot and had a great 6.8 mile run for a total of 9.11 miles.

Also did 45 minutes of yoga in the morning.

Tuesday: 20 minutes of yoga in the morning.  This was supposed to be a HIIT workout but my lower back was grouchy from the 2.2 miles of slipping and sliding while running on Monday.  Yoga just seemed like a smarter option.

Wednesday: 7.78 mile run, 5 minutes of easy yoga and a  24 minute HIIT in the morning
  • divebombers, pistol squats and dragon lunges
  • step ups, renegade row pushups, single leg deep lunges, kettle bell swings
Thursday: 12 minute HIIT after work

Friday: yoga 20 minutes in the morning before work

Saturday: ...nothing not sure what happened here, but I know I napped all afternoon and it felt amazing

Sunday: .. really meant to run, but it was cold and windy and I wasn't in the mood to be cold and blown away so I did the elliptical for an hour and did a 20 minute HIT workout.

Running  16.88
Yoga  4
HIIT/Strength 3
Elliptical 60 minutes

Soooo upside was this week I did so much better on yoga but bailed on half my runs. I did get in some cross training on the elliptical.

ALSO as of today I have 59 days until my next half marathon and first race of the year!

and once again linking up with Holly and Tricia for the Weekly Wrap even though I am a day late! againweekly wrap up


  1. We've yet to get snow...probably because I bought Yaktrax last year! Lol!

  2. I won't lie...I've been enjoying my indoor rides on the bike trainer! I'm getting ready to head back outdoors this weekend tho. Time to start marathon training.

  3. I've enjoyed being in recovery mode this week. I may have enjoyed it a little too much as I can tell it's going to be hard to get back out there. I love the views you have on your runs, simply awesome! Your company isn't bad either lol. Glad you can do some inside when the conditions are bad outside! Appreciate you linking up with us!

  4. Christy, you still had a solid week after bailing on some runs! How do you stay entertained on the elliptical for that length of time? Music? I've been trying to do a little yoga. It's growing on me slightly. This week has been a rest week and I'm anxious to get back into a routine. Thanks for linking with us!


Because I love hearing from you all!
