Last Week’s Workouts

Last week's workouts |

Last week’s workouts were simple thanks to a mini taper for the Loon Mountain Race on Sunday.  In addition, full on summer running has graced us FINALLY!  It’s hot, it’s humid and no one better complain about it.  Lol.  The timing was perfect for the 4th of July and an extended holiday weekend.

So I’ve got mixed emotions about how Loon went down.  Stay tuned for Wednesday for the full recap. Until then…here’s the rundown of last week’s workouts.


30 minutes Arc Trainer Intervals

Strength training – Bullet Proof Leg Circuit + upper body, core and mobility

My only strength training session for the week to make sure my legs were rested for race day.


32 minute run, 3.7 miles

It was my last workout before Loon – Attacking the hills and recovering on the downhill/flats. A few hills felt great but a few others were slower than usual. I’m blaming Max. He doesn’t understand that we can’t stop to smell/pee when it’s hill attacking time.

Morning Flow Yoga @ Bending Bodhi

35 minute run, 4 miles, 281 ft elev gain

An easy morning run with Kyle.  I love that our mouths run as much as our legs.


32 minute power walk

Since I swapped a cross training day with a running day and it was a holiday, I opted to keep things easy with a power walk with Max before the 4th of July festivities got under way.


Rest day!


20 minute shake out run

It was 80 degrees and humid AF but 8 a.m. I took things nice and easy and hoped that the predicted (much cooler) weather for Sunday’s race would be right on.


Race day – Loon Mountain Race – Full recap coming soon!

  1. It was a good week to be tapering. Hitting the upper 80s by 8 am is ridiculous. Can’t wait to hear how the race went!

  2. I agree, it’s summer ((finally)) and nobody better be complaining LOL Sounds like you tapered well and took things very conservative…always a good thing with a big race on tap! I’ll be eagerly awaiting to hear the details!

  3. Congrats on conquering Loon Mtn! Anxious to hear more!

    Sorry, but I will be complaining about the heat and humidity! Moderation is all good in my book!

  4. I enjoyed reading about your run with Max. I can remember running with my dog Benji – he’s 13 now and a senior citizen, so just walks for Mr. Benji – he used to run about 5 miles for my 3. He would zig, zag, and sniff every clump of grass!

    Looking forward to reading your Loon Mtn. report! 🙂

  5. Congrats on the race – I can’t wait to read more about it! Ollie never likes running up hills either – even though you think four legs would be an advantage!
