i’ve decided Wednesdays are good days to do weekly workout posts, so let’s get that rolling, shall we?
Sunday: 6-7 miler at an easy pace along the Hudson River. surprisingly, i felt really good after the Brooklyn Half on Saturday and since it was so nice out, i decided a morning run was in order. my legs really weren’t that sore (which means i could have pushed much harder during the half, but not worried about that!), and i felt super grateful during that run, that i live in a place where i can run along the water and just relish in the joy of being outdoors.
Monday: strength/light free weights/circuit boot camp in the morning in my apartment gym. i went light on the leg exercises (necessary after running 20 miles in the last 2 days) and did more upper body stuff.
Tuesday: kept it simple & functional: the usual 3.5 mile bike ride to work, and then walked that river route home. legs were a bit tight, but nothing crazy.
Wednesday (today): ran 4 miles this morning at a really easy pace. this is my fave way to start my day, and even though my legs were sorta hurtbagging on this run, i was in great spirits and just happy to be out there on a lovely morning!
Thursday: i’m thinking a morning gym session consisting of some Arc trainer, light weights/pushups and abs will do me well tomorrow, and maybe another walk home from work.
Friday: hoping for a short run before work (3 miles maybe) and some abs & stretching.
Friday night i’m headed upstate to the lake with one of my bffs for a fabulous Memorial Day wknd of boating, family, friends, workouts, bbqs and wine! cannot waiiiiit.
Saturday: morning gym sesh with my friend at my gym upstate!
full week of fun and varied workouts for me!
how about you??

Nice job this week! Hurtbagging – I love that, LOL!!!
haha truth. thanks! 🙂
Oooo I’m liking the Wednesday recap! You are having quite the awesome week, my dear! It sounds like you have an awesome plan for this weekend too (kinda jealous…I’m not going anywhere!). I hope you have a blast!
thank you, lady love. hope you have a wonderful weekend too!
You killed it running last weekend! You’re being super smart about recovering and listening to your body 🙂 Hope you have a great day!
thanks, Jamie! 🙂
Where do you go to go boating? It looks beautiful!
hey! my parents live on a lake in upstate, NY, so i’m fortunate to be able to go there regularly. 🙂 i love being on the water!
I wish I was more of a runner, but sadly I am not. I try to workout 5 times a week, but I am slacking at the moment. ( I graduate from college/uni this weekend). I always do cardio and I run for about a mile, sometimes 2. Then I have an arms, legs, abs/back sort of days and that how I workout. xx
congrats on graduating this weekend! sounds like you’ve got a good workout routine, too. 🙂
Lots of stretching, cross training and a little (dancing while) running this week!! haha Getting ready for 26.2!
youuuuu. you’re ridiculous with these marathons!
I’m really liking the idea of Weekly Workout Wednesday — might have to make that a regular thing for me as well 🙂 I love when bloggers share their workouts. It holds us all a little more accountable to being active. I can’t wait to read all about your fun weekend!
yesss let’s do it! i should do a link-up! how do i do that? 🙂
Omggaahh get me in that kayak! So legit. Along with your workouts. BOOM.
Love this and your weekend sounds amazing! Have a fabulous time!
I posted last week’s workouts today too. Must be what all the cool kids do.
Hurtbagging. I’m totally stealing it. That lake looks so damn pretty. Well done this week!!!!! 🙂
