Weekly Wrap

I feel like I kind of pop in and out of the habit of getting these weekly wraps done and Hawaii really threw me for a loop, but I am back and the running weather in Montana is on point lately.

Recovering from Hawaii took a bit.  I finally got the recaps done from the Ragnar I did there you can read Part one and Part two if you are interested. I pretty much came home from Hawaii and hit the ground running with a long day of preg testing and moving cows the next day. I felt jet lagged for a week maybe more.  This getting older is tough!

I lost my Garmin charger on the Hawaii trip so I have been running with my phone. I have a new charger thingy on the way as I really prefer having a watch.

Sunday: I ran 2ish miles with my daughter who was on her bike.  My stomach wasn't feeling so good so I didn't run the rest of my miles like I had planned.

Running is always funner with a captive audience

Monday: P90X3 Eccentric Upper  (this left my chest muscles so sore the next day!)
and a 5 mile run in the afternoon. For some reason I procrastinated too long and ran out of time to run any further and still get in a shower before trick or treating. I almost didn't run because I was tired etc etc (fill in any number of lame excuses) but so glad I did, I really needed to run. It was one of those much needed mood altering runs

Tuesday:  P90X3 yoga in the morning before work

Wednesday: Zuzka Light Power Yoga V2 which is a yoga inspired workout that leaves a person sweaty and makes you do enough chatarungas that your arms are left crying. I would give you a link to get your own, but I think it's sold out and they aren't making more
Run: 9.5 mile long run.  3 miles easy pace, 3 miles at 8:25 ish pace and 3 at 8:05 pace, and the last half mile was strides.

Thursday: Rest day?

Friday: 15 minute HIIT workout with Zuzka Light  and a four mile run after work

Saturday: 15 minutes of easy yoga in the morning. Butcher pigs and then a 5 mile run with 800s x 4 and one easy mile

and the poses from the November yoga challenge I have joined on Instagram so far

Running almost 29 miles
Yoga 3
Strength 3
Next race: Run to the Pub half marathon in March, maybe a Thanksgiving 5k

once again linking up with Holly and Tricia for the Weekly Wrap

The purpose of this link is to connect with and support other active women.  You can summarize your whole week or just a small portion of it.  It's up to you!  Race recaps are also encouraged!   {See complete rules} 


  1. How do you like P90X3? I LOVED the original P90X, but was less than impressed with X2. I have wondered about X3, though. I'm not into the gym scene, but really like doing my own thing (on my own time), so these workouts with Tony worked well for me.

  2. Great week of workouts, Christy! And love your pics, as usual!

  3. Strong week, especially coming back from Ragnar. Love your outfits.

  4. Travel always tires me out and when you add that to a Ragnar Race, I can imagine it took you a few days to feel normal again. Cola is missing from some of your pictures this week. He must have been busy! What an impressive week you had when it sounds like you're not really training for anything just yet! Thanks for linking, Christy!

  5. I'm visiting my farm this week and ran past cows yesterday. They were unimpressed!

    Can't wait to read your Ragnar recaps - hopefully tomorrow!

  6. I would love for you to do a Day in the Life post about ranch life. I find it so interesting.
    As I get older the jet lag gets harder... and I fly all the time.

  7. You have hit the ground running since your races! Ha I just read Karen's comment about the day in the life post and I'm going to second that! You should do one! Just saying! :)


Because I love hearing from you all!
