Fit Friday: Best run ever, virtual 5k & snow days.

Been a different week for me. No real reason, just different. Maybe going from mid 50’s last weekend to a winter storm and two snow days has things feeling a bit helter skelter. I’ve had time to catch up on a bunch of work and personal stuff, though! Always a good feeling.

My week:

  • Friday
    • No workout, but an evening of champagne and girly movies with Casey. And a video that maybe no one else will enjoy, but we find hilarious.
  • Saturday
    • Best. Run. EVER. Well, so far. 6.2 miles, 1:00:00 (9:43 pace).
      I went into this run caring about perceived effort than time. As my runtastic app gave me my splits, it became clear that I was moving at a great pace. “One hour,” I kept telling myself. “I can hold a 10:00 pace. You got this.” As any runner knows, a few seconds either way are huge. I didn’t just hold a 10:00 pace, I destroyed it. 🙂
    • Finished up with 40 walking lunges, 50 pushups, 60 back extensions and 1:00 #plankaday front and each side.
  • Sunday
    • Virtual 5K: 3.1 mi, 34:00 (10:58 pace)
      Considering I walked a fair amount of this, I’m happy with that pace. I participated in this virtual 5k with Casey, who’s not a runner, so we took our time and enjoyed the beautiful weather!
    • Finished with 100 back extensions, 100 abs, 50 pushups, 50 bridges, 50 tricep dips and a 2:30 #plankaday.

      • 60 each:
        • back extensions
        • band pull–aparts
        • plank up/downs
        • tricep dips
        • push ups
        • low wood chop
        • bicep curls w/ shoulder press
        • pike push ups
        • & bent rows.
      • Plus 3x 1:00 planks.
    • Wednesday
      • Third pole fitness class. Almost forgot about class and didn’t have time to eat before hand! Made for a tougher – and dizzier – evening. Next week is the last class, so I’m gonna be better prepared! And maybe have a video or two….
    • Thursday
      • Nothing except a quick 1:00 #plankaday. Pretty much just lazy. Well… that and a snow storm.I got myself and into the office – through sleet and wind – just to turn around and go home a whopping 45 minutes later. Felt like a total waste of the morning. On the short drive home mine and other vehicles were already sliding around and visibility was terrible. Plus is I have another snow day today!

Also, this happened. Brocoli and onion pizza on homemade dough. Delish.

Not sure what else the weekend holds. Probably zero running. Days like this make me really want a treadmill. And a hovercraft.

And finally, a friend just sent me this. *This much* ironic. 🙂

How do you workout when you’re snowed in?

  1. I’m all about the workout DVDs for winter! Now that I’m actually running again I can see that using DVDs all winter really helped improve my runs. My faves are Bob Harper DVDs

    • I haven’t tried Bob’s. I have a few Jillian ones, but I can’t do her’s regularly; her doesn’t work for me. I’ve been doing more strength and HIIT workouts in the winter, and I can definitely tell in my running, too! When the weather permits, of course.
