Weekly Wrap: It ends with Sugar

And another week is in the books!  Here is a quick look at last week's workouts.

Monday: Yoga in the morning for 25 minutes.

This was supposed to be intervals for my run today, but I just wasn't feeling it. I was tired, it was windy. I opted for an easy run instead.

Tuesday: Early morning work meeting, but I got off in time to sneak in a run before the kids got home from school. It was beautiful out and only breezy instead of the gale force winds we have had for the last week. YAY

Wednesday:  25 minutes of bodyweight workouts in the morning before work.

Thursday: Long run day.  I really thought it wasn't going to be windy today looking at the weather forecast...wrong.  BOO.  I ran 10 miles and on top of the wind just felt like I didn't have a lot of energy.  I don't know if it was the workout I did Wednesday, or the wind, or maybe the hills, but I just felt like I was dragging.  On the upside even if it was windy, it was warm! No gloves!  I probably could have worn shorts.

Also 50 minutes of yoga in the morning.

Friday 15 minute HIIT in the morning with weights before work.

Saturday: 7 mile run with 6 quarter mile intervals and a fast finish. This run felt so much better than Thursday's run! 

Sunday: Yoga 25 minutes. Easy run. I basically ran two miles, stopped in at my parent's house and visited for a bit and then ran 3.25 ish home and then ran another 1.5 while the kids biked.  Would have been a super easy run except it is pretty much all uphill from my parent's house.  I did stop and walk a couple times.

I did some more of the #Aloyogalove Instagram challenge this week.  I think I hit 5 out of the 7 days.

 Sunday also had these great highlights: Hiking with the family first thing in the morning, a run, a bike with my kids, my son had a county 4-H shoot and got 5th in his age group (he beat all the other nine year olds and 4 ten year olds.  He only got beat by older kids so he was happy with that) and our first baby of the season.

She was born a little early and is a little small so we will have to keep a good eye on her, My daughter named her Sugar since she was born on Valentine's day.

Yoga:  3
Strength:  2
Runs: 5 for 33.75 miles

How was your week?


  1. I love that butterfly top of yours! Is that Ink n burn? Looks like you had a lovely sunny week to get outside and run. I am in desperate need of sunshine and temperatures over 20F!! Have a great week!

  2. Looks like some beautiful sunshiny days for you this week. Nice!

  3. I love the yoga in shorts with snow on the ground! Hope those warms temps are here to stay. They're heading in my direction. Thank you!

  4. Awesome week - well done, Christy!

  5. Sugar is so cute! I grew up on a dairy farm, but we also had a herd of beef cattle. I loved our newborn Angus calves!

  6. Another great week for you! I love how you take even small bursts of time to fit something in. I need to be better about that!

  7. your title made me nervous. I thought you were cutting sugar out of your diet. That's always a sad declaration. :)
    Strong week, there.

  8. Hurray for warm days and new calves!

  9. The yoga in shorts with snow on the ground is awesome!! It looks like you had a great week of working out!! I wish I could drag myself out of bed before work do to some kind of workout! Great job!!

  10. Sounds like a great week even if not all runs were spot on. That happens. I was out at 7:15 this morning (very early here) and had on a hat and mittens but it was probably foty degrees. A guy was out in a t shirt and shorts... I would freeze ! But the days are getting longer !

    Sugar is too cute and congrats to your son.

  11. Shorts with snow in the background!!! I'm feeling so wimpy! I think the wind was a trend among us this past week! How sweet you named the calf Sugar, awww it's just perfect. So how many babies will you have this spring? Thanks so much for linking up with us!

  12. I am so impressed at your flexibility - something would totally pop if I tried some of those moves

  13. You runs were downright balmy this week! I think we had your cold weather. Congrats to your little cowboy for doing so well in the county 4-H shoot. I was a member of 4-H in elementary school. I haven't heard anyone mention it in years! I'm glad to know it is still around. I hope Sugar is doing well. Thanks for linking with us Christy.

  14. I noticed that everyone is intrigued with yoga in shorts with snow on the too! :) We woke up to snow today in southern VA but unfortunately the snow turned to sleet and then rain. Gross! I was kind of hoping for a little white stuff but no dice. Alas...the weirdness of winter in the pseudo-south. Love that sweet calf too! Perfect name given the season. Have a good week! -C

  15. Welcome Sugar! Perfect name. Great week!

  16. I love all your running tights! Such fun patterns. And Sugar IS the perfect name :) Looks like you had a pretty good week of runs, despite the wind!


Because I love hearing from you all!
