Last Week’s Workout Recap and Weekly Wrap (10/26-11/1)

It was a decent week of workouts last week. It’s good and bad that I don’t have any races scheduled for the rest of the year. It’s nice being able to do what I please but I have that feeling I should be doing more. October ended with 83 miles for the month. That was my lowest monthly total for the year. I guess it’s not bad since I was recovering from my first marathon. Next month, I’ll try for 100 miles. It was the first time I was less than 100 miles since March. Well, here’s what I did last week:

Monday – Ran 3 morning miles.Tuesday – I decided to do Insanity Max:30 Tabata Power.  Wednesday – Ran 4 rainy morning miles.Thursday – Rest Day but did some walking.   Friday – Ran 5 miles on the treadmill.   Saturday – Ran 6 miles on the treadmill.Sunday – Rest Day.

The highlight of the week was Halloween. The kiddos had so much fun trick or treating. I took them to an outside mall early around 1pm.Then we continued later in the evening. This year was the first year we went further than our actual small development. We went to a lot more houses down our road and there were lots more decorated houses which was neat to see. Check out that big cat in the background. Its head actually moved. 
Also, on Saturday I was excited to see what came in the mail. I got the BOSU I won from the #BOSUSstrong Fitfamily Challenge from BOSU and Fit Approach!! It’s so cool that I won and I’ll be doing my first workout on Monday. 🙂

Also, congrats to Nicki J. who won the bottle of Mighty Nut Powdered Peanut Butter. 

How’d your week go? How was your Halloween? Have you used a BOSU?

  1. I love those shoes. Those are Brooks? I think I have an earlier version of them. Sounds like a nice week and the kids look like they were enjoying Halloween!


  2. 83 miles is still a very impressive for a recovery month. Your kids are cute in their Halloween costumes. I think the oldest is Darth Vader and the youngest is a Storm Trooper? I’m so out of the loop on what’s in. LOL. I love houses that go overboard with the decorating! I appreciate you linking with us! Have a wonderful week.


  3. Sounds like another great week! 83 miles is still great!! Halloween was fun for us this year too! We went to a friends neighborhood and they went for the longest they’ve ever been! which means more candy, but still fun. Not sure what we’ll do with all the candy. :p


  4. Great week of staying active and how cool is that you won a Bosu! You and your kids will have a ball on it! I see lots of pictures of workouts with the kids in your future! Looks like you all had a great Halloween too! Thanks so much for linking up with us! Have a great week!


  5. I know the feeling of going from running a lot of miles to very few following your goal race. I’m starting to build back up my mileage to have a good base for when training starts in January. Your kids are very cute! I have a BOSU ball and really love it. Even if I’m not doing a workout on it, even just standing it on on one leg is a workout! Hope you enjoy it!


  6. I have a hard time staying motivated when I don’t have a race on the calendar. 83 miles is quite impressive for a marathon recovery month. You’re body needed the rest. Your boys look cute in their Halloween costumes. We didn’t have many trick or treaters here.


  7. Congratulations on winning the Bosu! I knew you would – your pictures and workouts were awesome! Awesome October miles and great workouts. I bet the boys did have a blast during Halloween. They are so cute all dressed up!
