So, for the first time in a very long time I think I’m going to win this week’s step challenge on Garmin Connect. We don’t “officially” find out who wins until tomorrow, but I’m thinking its pretty safe to assume that I will.
Haha I don’t know what it is about these step challenges that make me so competitive, but they really do! 😆
- 10 minute warm up on the stationary bike (2.4 miles), 30 minute intervals (1 min run/1 min walk), 5 minute walk to cool down
- Jillian Michaels 30 Day Shred (Day 11)
Monday’s run went super well! Spent a lot of time focusing on form and I was quite pleased about how fast I managed to go during the running intervals. On Monday I also moved up to level 2 of the 30 Day Shred. This level always KILLS me. So. Much. Plank work.
- Easy 20 minute run
The speed work is working!! I’m slowly but surly noticing that my average paces are getting better. Below is last week’s 3 miler compared to this weeks. And I could go back farther than that for comparison, but that would get boring.
- Playing around on a playground for an hour-ish totally counts as a workout
- Easy 1 mile
- 10 minutes stretching/foam rolling
- 4 mile run
It was almost 70 degrees for this run. Eww…I’m already dreading summer. It was a pretty good run though. I got to pet a cat.😊 Haha yes, as a matter of fact, I do judge how well a run went depending on whether or not I got to pet an animal.
- Rest day
The past 4 days have been ridiculously nice out! We spent a good majority of the weekend outside and it was awesome! We’ve been to the dog park 5 times In the last 4 day. Haha needless to say, the dogs are super happy about that, and so am I.
Workout wise I think this week went really well. I skipped out on a lot of strength but my runs have been really good. For the first time in forever I feel like I’m actually improving! Which is super awesome because I’m thinking I’m going to be signing up for a 5k in May! Yay!! 😁 Haha I wish I could do more races, but jeez they are expensive…but anyways, I hope you’ve have had an awesome week as well!
