This week was all about running!!!!
Sunday 8/17 – 44 barbell clean and press with a row.
I liked this move because I felt like it worked pretty much every muscle in my body!!!
Monday 8/18 – 44 stair push-up with a jump.
This move was fun – it got my heart rate up and because of the angle of the push-ups I was sore for a few days!!!
This was the starting day of a long run streak:
10 miles in 79:41 + 1.5 miles easy.
Tuesday 8/19 – 44 stability ball single leg oblique punches with a dumbbell.
I did all 44 on one side and then switched sides for another set.
These were hard – the hardest part was keeping my balance – part of why the pictures are blurrier than normal!!!
And a shorter, faster run:
7 miles in 50:22 with an easy mile to finish.
Wednesday 8/20 – 44 plie squat jumps with a small band around my ankles and a lateral raise with dumbbells (5 pounds).
You can’t really tell that I jumped but I did!!!
Back to a double digit run at a slower pace:
10.5 miles in 86:50 + 0.7 miles
I counted a left & right tap as 1 rep. By the end of all 44 my hip flexors were dying!!!
A long run at a quicker pace:
11 miles in 86:56 + 0.6 miles
I sort of kicked to my opposite side. And, when I went back to link to Taylor’s site I realized that I”m an idiot – she did them on her elbows – oh, well – a great move either way!!!
Another double digit run:
10 miles in 77:23 followed by 1.1 easy miles.
Saturday 8/23 – 44 squat pulses while standing on dumbbells.
(hard to take pictures of pulses without them being blurry!!)
Today I did a shorter run outside while Hunter had cross country practice – wish it would have been earlier since it was already close to 85 degrees!!!
4 easy miles and then 20+ minutes walking around waiting for Hunter and the other kids to get back to the school.
Overall it was a good week:
52.5 miles + 4.9 easy miles for a total of 57.4 miles.
I have a few more days of long runs planned and then I’m going to back off a bit. (Can you tell I have a race coming up????)
