We’re getting used a new normal around here without Oscar. Sticking to my usual workout schedule helped. Though I still expect him to come running when we get home from the gym. It’s very strange not having him around. I know it’ll take some time to get used to this new normal.
Saturday we had our Moms Run This Town Winter Virtual race. We had big plans for signs and distances, but Mother Nature was not kind to us. The path was snowy and slick and the temperature wasn’t even in the double digits with a negative windchill. I decided to stick to 10K instead of a half marathon because, well, I couldn’t feel my thighs. I took it slow and ran the whole thing with a friend. I enjoyed the company.
Sunday was a rest day.
Monday I hit the YMCA and did 20 minutes on the elliptical and ran through some weights. Hubby was home for President’s Day, so I was able to go early, which was nice because it wasn’t very busy and I didn’t have to wait for any machines or weights.
On Tuesdays I run. So I put Pumpkin in the stroller and we hit the neighborhood. It was an interval day and I’m pretty happy with my performance considering I was pushing a stroller. 3 miles (9:19 min/mile)
Wednesday I tried a new class with some friends. It’s called CSI (cardio, strength, intervals). It was a great class! We did some tabata (starting out with burpees!), lots of plank variations and some high rep weights. It was an hour well spent!
On Thursday I hit the pavement again for a 6 mile tempo run. The target was 9:28 min/mile and I came in at 9:26 min/mile for 6.5 miles. Again, I was super happy with that especially since I was a stroller pushing. Thankfully the weather was great. Almost 30 degrees, sunny and no wind!!!
Today we were off to the Y again. I did a 20 minute warmup on the bike before going through my weight routine. Today was a back focused workout. And because I had a little more time before I needed to be at the running store for their clearance sale I ran a quick-ish mile on the treadmill (9:06 min/mile). Pumpkin and I were twinsies with our gym hair.
I’m looking at a double digit run in the morning and it looks like the weather is going to be much nicer than last Saturday! And then it’s a birthday weekend!!! We’ll be celebrating hubby’s birthday and spending time with family.
Do you have big weekend plans?
