Last Week’s Workouts Recap and Weekly Wrap (12/7-12/13)

It was another good week of workouts. I’m still doing the Runner’s World Holiday Run Streak and Sunday marked day 18. Here’s what the week looked like:

Monday – I started off doing Insanity Max 30: Tabata Power. I woke up late and only got 18 minutes of the 30 minute workout because I wanted to get my mile in before work too. 18 minutes was better than nothing.
Tuesday – Ran 3 wet morning miles.  Wednesday – Ran 3 miles again before work.Thursday – Got some strength training in and did Focus T25 Gamma Extreme Circuit. Also, got my mile in for day 15 of the #RWRunStreak.   Friday – Ran a nice 5 miler in the rain.  Saturday – Had a good workout with the BOSU and did the Fuse workout. It’s a good balance and strength one. Also, ran my mile for day 17 of the #RWRunStreak.Sunday – Ran 10 miles. I was happy to run a long run outside since I had the day off of work. 

We had some holiday fun this week. The kiddos had fun decorating their gingerbread house.We put up our tree and decorated it. Love how they were so excited to put up the ornaments, especially my youngest.They also went and visited Santa. They both made the nice list. I took my little guy’s pic a little too early. 😛

How’d your week go? Have you finished your holiday shopping? Hope you have a wonderful week ahead!

Friday Five: Five Things I’m Loving This 4th of July

It’s Friday! I’m linking up once again with Eat Pray Run DCYou Signed Up for What?! and Mar on the Run for their Friday Five Linkup. This week’s theme is the “4th of July” and so here are five things I’m loving this 4th of July:

1. Love seeing fireworks, but we’ll probably just get some sparklers and not watch a big live show. I have to work the next day. Here’s a cute but old pic when we watched fireworks at Rockaway Beach, OR.

2. The Runner’s World run streak ends on the fourth of July. This will be my longest run streak at 41 days. It was a good streak but I’ll be looking forward to my rest days now that I’m marathon training.IMG_5367

3. The 2nd Earthathon Relay has just started and I’m looking forward to contributing my miles. It’s not too late to join. It’s a fun and free virtual relay with ten teams competing the distance of the circumference of the earth. It’s fun, great motivation, and a great way to meet runners all over the world. All you need is a Twitter account. You can learn more at earthathonrelay.com. We could use your miles on team RunderfulRunners. 🙂IMG_27354. It’s been sooo hot lately, I’m loving these Yasso mint chocolate chip frozen greek yogurt bars. So good! I got them at Costco.

5. I’m also loving my new hat which is also a heart rate monitor. It’s called the LifeBeam Smart Hat. I splurged and got it with a coupon code since I don’t like wearing the chest strap heart rate monitors. It works great and pairs with my Garmin!

What are you loving right now? Any plans this July 4th weekend?

Hope you have a great weekend and be sure to check out the other blogs!
