Last Week’s Workouts (3/23-3/29) and Weekend Update

Last week was a pretty good week! I started the Nike Coach half marathon training plan. I found out that the Nike Running app syncs with Garmin now and decided to try it out. This plan has me running a lot more miles than I’m used to but we’ll see how it goes. Here’s what was scheduled for last week:Here’s what I did:

Monday – Ran five miles.

Tuesday – Eight birthday miles completed. 🙂Wednesday – Ran my longest run ever on the treadmill, seven miles!

Thursday – Rest Day

Friday – Ran my virtual 5k for the Rock’n’Roll Las Vegas Kickoff! Can’t wait to get my free shirt! You can join in too if you haven’t already. It’s free! You have until April 1st to run your virtual 5k. Check it out HERE.Saturday – I decided to do Insanity Max:30 – Max Out Strength today to get some strength training in. This one really works arms, shoulders, chest and core. The kiddos joined in for the warmup. 

Sunday – Ran 12 miles.

Now on to the weekend update. On Saturday,  the kiddos and I went to Magnolia Park while the hubby worked. The kiddos had a fun time.       On Sunday, we went to Home Depot for an item we needed and my kiddos saw the signs they sell for businesses, like No Smoking or signs for Restrooms. Haha, my kiddos wanted me to buy them one. There was no way I was buying signs we didn’t need lol, so I was like you can make your own signs. Sure enough when we got home, my four year old made his own. He told me what to write.

We later went to an outside mall, where the kiddos enjoyed smelling the flowers. 🙂There was an REI there and saw this, the Garmin Vivoactive. Good thing I had my dividend and they gave me the 20% off that members save. I can’t wait to test this on my next run!
How’d your week go? Hope you have a wonderful week!

I’m linking up with Tara from Running ‘n’ Reading for the Weekend Update.

  1. Hi via Weekend Update! 🙂 Good luck with the Nike+ coach! I tried to use it for my first half marathon training (on beginner setting) but it was way more miles than I could handle. Now that I’ve done a half, I would probably try it again as a more experienced runner…but yeah, that program really works you hard!

    I smiled at your pic of the kids doing cross train with you…that will likely be how I get my strength training done today! 🙂 Have a great week!


  2. SWEET! I can’t wait to hear what you think about your Vivoactive; that thing looks so cool! Sounds like you had a wonderful training week, Sharon, and I always love to see you out playing with the kiddos! Thanks so much for linking up with the blog!


  3. Thanks Tara! I’m loving the watch so far and will be taking it on a run for the first time tomorrow. You might be confusing me with Sharon since we’re twins. Her blog is run-hike-play. 🙂 I’m Sherry. Thanks for having the link up!!


  4. It’s so cute your kids wanted to make their own signs! That is pretty high mileage for a half plan. I’m interested to see if it works for you. I’d certainly give it a try.


  5. Adorable your kiddos wanted to get the no smoking signs. The plan I will use for St. Michaels (modification of Hal Higdon) will go up to 12 miles as well.
