Better late than never on last week. We had gorgeous weather and I was able to rock out 35 miles, which was the most I'd ran in a week in quite a while. Christmas was my rest day, and I ate PLENTY to uh refuel my muscles :)
Monday -6 treadmill miles then headed out to start and end Christmas shopping... last minute style. That should also count as a workout. Yuck.
Tuesday - Christmas Eve! 8 treadmill miles, plus weighted lunges (ouch) and shoulder workout. And Ab intervals with Shaun T. Don't worry, I ate back every single calorie burned within 5 minutes at my parent's house.
Wednesday - MERRY CHRISTMAS! Rest day. I planned on running some easy miles in my new Wave Rider 17s, but I felt extremely sore, tired, and well, lazy. It was a nice afternoon and I did make it outside for a walk around the lake which is close to 2 miles.
Thursday -8.5 miles at 8:12 average pace. HELLO perfect weather!! This morning was so gorgeous. I just wanted to run forever!
I hit the gym in the afternoon for some weights, and walked the lake with my parents.
Friday - 6 miles at 8:17 avg. Again, perfection. Spent the gorgeous afternoon visiting some family in Iowa, and finished off the day with Body Pump (60 minutes) and it felt amazing.
Saturday - 7 miles at 8:34 avg again outside. And oh so hard. Maybe it was from pump the night before, or just the extra miles I wasn't used to running outside, but I really thought I was just going to fall over. Some runs are like that I guess...
Sunday - 45 minutes elliptical, Body Pump (60 minutes) and CXWORX (30 minutes). I was tired after this :)
This was an awesome last full week of 2013. I am off work, so I have lots of extra time to devote to fitness, which makes me extremely happy.
