Thurs, 2/11: friiiiigid 4-mile run home from work; abs (planks & bicycles) and a few sets of push-ups

Sat, 2/13: (gym w/ boy): 5 mile treadmill run, 1 mile incline walking, bunch of abs (5 mins planks, bicycles, leg raises)
Sun, 2/14 (<3 day!): (gym w/ boy): 2.5 mile treadmill run; free weights (biceps and chest), bench dips (ugh hate), and a new-to-me thing that the boy recently got me into: weighted push-ups. i did two sets of 12 push-ups with a 25 lb weight on my back, and one set of 15 with a 10lb. he does 45 lbs b/c he’s a boy and they can do that. we finished with abs (6 minutes of planks + bicycles and leg raises)
Mon, 2/15 (holiday, woot!): (gym w/ boy — we had a very fit + healthy Valentine’s weekend!): 4.5 miles on treadmill (with speedwork); abs
Tues, 2/16: evening workout in my living room: 45 minutes of upper body with 10 lb free weights (biceps, triceps, shoulders, rows, lateral pulls, etc); planks & abs; hip-thrusts (which Women’s Health recently touted as one of the best glute workouts, so I’ve begun implementing them to see for myself!)
Wed, 2/17: 4 mile treadmill run (+ .5 walking) this morning; 5 mins of planks; 50 decline bench sit-ups
total weekly mileage: 20
thoughts: so I know I said my February goal was to hit 25 miles/week, but I’m not even the tiniest bit upset about only having run 20. in fact, 20 miles felt good & right this past week, and I feel like I really listened to my body during each run and while I worked hard at times and pushed through some “meh” spots, I didn’t overdo it or try to run through pain. all in all, I’m happy with this week and feel good. also, i love gym sessions with the bf. they’re my absolute favorite. ❤
song of the week: “Let You Go” by Chainsmokers ft. Great Good Fine Ok –> I LOVE everything these guys touch!
