This week started off great! It was nice to not have the Insanity Max:30 workouts since it’s tapering time. I did try some 21 Day Fix Extreme workouts and liked the strength training. But it seems like I’ve just come up a with a cold and my Sunday run was tough. Hopefully, it goes a way soon. Here’s the My Asics schedule last week:
Here’s what I did last week:
Monday – Rest Day
Tuesday – Before my kiddos Preschool Field trip, I tried 21 Day Fix Extreme’s Upper Fix workout. It was a great upper body workout! It’s been a while since I’ve used weights and it was good. Wednesday – I ended up running an easy 4 miles instead of 3. Then I did Dirty 30 Extreme with the hubby. Another great workout with weights.
Thursday – Ran 5.5 miles while the kiddo was in Preschool.Friday – Rest Day
Saturday – Three miles on the treadmill.Saturday was also a big day for the kiddos, since they were belt testing and earned their next belts. My youngest got his gold belt.
My oldest got his Warrior Juniors blue advanced belt and a patch for being teacher assistant more than twenty times. I’m proud of them and happy they enjoy martial arts.
Sunday – I ran only 5 miles, for the San Jose 408k Race to the Row Virtual/Remote Run I won from a giveaway from Relentless Forward Commotion. The actual race took place on March 1st, but I did not receive the bib, medal and shirt until Friday, the 6th. This was my first 8k virtual race or 8k race I’ve ever ran. An 8k is 4.97 miles but I decided to run 5 miles. It was a tough one for me. I just got a cold and wasn’t into it but got it done. I was hoping to run the 5.5 miles but didn’t feel well while running so just decided on the five miles. Hopefully my cold goes away soon! One more week until the NYC Half!
How’d your week go? Here’s to a great week ahead!

Your boys are so cute. One of mine studied martial arts and received his black belt. He always loved board breaking more than anything else. I hope your cold is better quickly and you have a wonderful NYC race.
Thanks! That’s awesome one of yours received his black belt! Haha the kiddos like board breaking too.
Congrats to the kiddos on the belt. Can’t believe NYC Half weekend is already here!
Thanks Jennifer! Yeah, I can’t believe it too. I’m getting nervous. Should be fun. I’m not ready for hills though.
Nice week! Sorry to hear you weren’t feeling well. Hope you are better soon! See you Wednesday!
Thanks Sharon! I hope this cough goes soon! See you soon!
