Last Week’s Workouts and Weekend Update (3/16-3/22)

neon (11)This was recovery week after the NYC Half Marathon. I was a little sore after the race and wanted some time for my legs to recover. The My Asics App also had the whole week as a rest week but I couldn’t rest the whole week. Here’s what my workouts looked like this week as well as my weekend update:

Monday – Rest Day

Tuesday – Rest Day

Wednesday – I tried 21 Day Fix Extreme’s Pilates Fix for the first time. You use a resistance band throughout the workout and the handles were missing on mine so it was much tougher. But I had a great ab workout!
Β  Thursday – First run after the NYC Half. It felt good. Nice and easy.Friday – Ran a mile with this little cutie. He wanted to go for a run and I think he did awesome running his first mile.Saturday – I decided to do Focus T25’s Total Body Circuit workout. It’s been a while since I’ve done this one. I’m happy I can do more of it like some oblique push-ups now. I had a great sweat session!

On Saturday, IΒ also decided to check out Jackson Bottom Wetlands Preserve. It’s a 635-acre wildlife preserve with 4 miles of walking trails. This was my first time going there and it was a great place to walk and enjoy nature. My kiddos enjoyed it too. I think I’ll do another post on it since I took a bunch of pics.

That night I also drove to Seattle, about 3 hours away.

Sunday – I got in a 6 mile run before heading to my nephew’s birthday party.
Β Β This was waiting for me after my run….good thing I went for a run lol.Β This was a great idea that my sister in law came up with for lunch. It was a sandwich making spread. Everything was there to make a grilled sandwich or panini. We just picked what we wanted and then grilled it on the stove or in a panini maker. It was great!
We celebrated my nephew’s 7th birthday. I can’t believe he’s seven already. Time is flyingΒ and it means my eldest son’s birthday is just next month, since they are about a month apart in age.

It was a great day and nice to see my family again. How’d your week go? Hope you have a great week ahead!

  5. Certainly looks like you had a well planned out recovery week. Nice work! That sandwich making station is such a wonderful idea! I wonder if I can do that on Easter?! I was trying to think of a way to change things up from our usual turkey dinner! Anyhow, looks like you had a great week and weekend! Enjoy the week ahead!
