Weekly Wrap: First week of Feb is a Wrap!

Monday 13.1 mile easy long run, there was quite a bit of mud and ice, but there were also good periods of dirt too. Ahh, felt so good after being sick the last four days!  I also got in 45 minutes of yoga first thing in the morning.

Tuesday: 30 minutes of power yoga

Wednesday:  24 minute HIIT with weights
60 minutes on the elliptical... yep.. it was super windy out and I totally wussed out. I don't wuss out often so you know it was windy! and the wind was cold! I should have run in the morning, but it was my daughter's birthday and I had to leave fairly early in order to meet her at the school for lunch and I figured it would be warmer in the afternoon anyway.  What I didn't count on was the wind.  So on the elliptical I went and I made the time fly by watching Amazon Prime.

Thursday: 24 minute HIIT in the morning before work Zuzka Light 6 pack abs workout

Friday: Rest day, although I did start a new yoga challenge #Aloaboutyogalove  it only lasts 9 days I think. The first day was favorite arm balance.  This one is still a little hit a miss with me, but got it!

Saturday:  7.5 miles running with a sort of tempo run or maybe it was just a run with a big negative split, either way it was some speed work and it felt great! Although about 3.5 miles in the wind kicked up and was gusting me all over the road for a bit.

Also had my daughter's birthday party in the afternoon.  There was  a lot of giggling going on.

Sunday: After a busy morning of 4-H demonstrations and shooting sports I came home and got my run in. Thankfully the wind wasn't as bad as it had been yesterday and the best part was running into it for three miles meant it aided me all the way home!
and during half time of the Super bowl I did an 18 minute HIIT that left me energized and sweaty.

Runs 3 runs for 26.65 miles
Strength 3
Yoga 2
Elliptical 1 for 60 minutes
