Tell me: how was your week of workouts?


  1. Great job on your workouts! You fit so much into the week! My workouts were so so last week as I'm still being careful about how much I work out due to my RA flare. I went to yoga 3 times, did a strength training workout and ran once.

  2. Awesome week of workouts!

  3. Nice job! Hope you're still able to find time for workouts now that you're back at work. I have this perfect schedule figured out for mat leave that I'll have to completely reconfigure in March...
    My week = 3 5K runs on the treadmill at the gym (I'm jealous you have your own treadmill, I'm always thinking about if we should get one), 1 yoga class, and 1 barre class.

  4. Nice work! Will you be getting up in the morning to workout before work now or waiting till you get home?

  5. Nice work! I have to google what goblet lunges are!

  6. Nice job! It seems like you are really getting back into the swing of things! I also used Hal Higdon for my half marathon training and I did the same as you did, I shortened it to 4 days per week instead of five.

  7. That is a fancy treadmill :) Sounds like a great week of workouts!

  8. Congrats on a great week (especially with balancing going back to work!!)

    My workout week was great! Building my mileage and balancing cross-training well so far! And, my leg is sloooowwwwly getting better!
