Last Week’s Workout Recap (11/2-11/8)

Another week of workouts done. For November, I’ve decided to go for 100 miles, so I figure 25 miles per week. Let’s see if I can keep it up. Here’s what I did last week:

Monday – I tried the BOSU for the first time and did the Total Body Workout that came with it. I’m loving the BOSU! It’s an awesome element that adds balance.
Tuesday – Ran 4 miles before work.Wednesday – I ran 6 miles on the treadmill.Thursday – I decided to try another BOSU workout and did one from the bonus dvd. It was called BURN. I had a great workout but I was a bit disappointed because they used an additional BOSU and the ballast ball, which I don’t have in the last circuits. Afterwards, I ran 2 miles on the treadmill.   Friday – Ran 5 miles on the treadmill.Saturday – I ran 8 miles on the treadmill. We got a new treadmill a while ago and I’m happy that it’s finally working. It feels a lot better than the older one and much quieter. It has iFit which I haven’t tried yet. iFit lets you customize your workout, where you can set your own speed, distance, time, incline, decline, and even change up the scenery by adding Street View images to your workout. There’s lots of workout programs and other features which I need to read up on. I got 30 days free since it took them so long to get the new treadmill working. Sunday – Rest Day

So this was a pretty good week. I got 25 miles in. I ran more treadmill miles than I wanted to though since the kiddos had no school on my days off from work. But it was nice using the new treadmill on Saturday.

How’d your week go? Do you like running on the treadmill? Have you tried iFit?

  1. I am definitely a treadmill runner. So convenient. My goal has been to et outdoors for two runs per week. My track session and one of the weekend runs. Outside of that I don’t have time and don’t really care to run in the dark (work and 100 miles of commuting per day – ick)

  2. Awesome week! You got a lot of miles done! It’s been my goal the past two years to reach 1,200 miles for the year, but last year I fell short by 60 miles. This year I’ll barely make it past 1,000. I got pneumonia this spring and took almost a month off. I’m not a fan of the treadmill. In fact, the kinda scare me…lol.

  3. I gave my treadmill away. I rarely used it. It was like new too! However, it was very noisy. I figured out it aggravated my Achilles Tendonitis. I think I just run “different” on a treadmill than I do outside. Congrats on getting your 25 miles. I have never heard of iFit. Is that something you can buy independent of the treadmill? I was on track to have a great mileage year, but with my injury I doubt I will make 1000. I appreciate you linking up with us!

  4. I don’t have a treadmill at home, but I can jump on the one at the gym. That ifit sounds interesting, it would help me as its hard for me to run on a treadmill. But hey you got it and never have to worry with the weather outside! Enjoy your week and thanks for linking up with us.

  5. Nice week! I got one of the weighted balls at 5 below for $5 to use for the BOSU workouts. You can probably get away with using a weight though. Glad to hear your treadmill is working now. IFit sounds interesting!
