Last Week’s Workouts

Last week's workouts |

After months of being deprived of sunrise runs, I got my true summer running fix last week.  The humidity was high and it felt like gills would have been a better option rather than lungs.  I loved it!

Let’s jump right into last week’s workouts.


30 minutes Arc Trainer

15 minutes Stepmill

Bench press 3 x 10

DB incline flies 3 x 10

TRX Atomic Push Up 2 x 12

Skull crush 3 x 10

TRX Split Squats 2 x 12

Single leg deadlift with 25 lb DB’s 2 x 20

Plank variations, 5 minutes

Egoscue exercises

Another increase in run/walk intervals! Run time jumped up to 12 minutes x 2, 10 minutes x 1, with 2 minute walk intervals in between.  I’m following a plan I got from my PT but modifying it a little.  I still have some soreness in the fracture area that occurs afterwards.  It kind of freaks me out but my ortho and PT aren’t concerned because it doesn’t hurt while I run.

I had a sick kid at home with me so I had to skip yoga class.

15 minutes Stepmill

30 minutes upright bike

This was the day that I smacked myself in the forehead with a 25 lb. plate at the gym.  You may be wondering how can you do such a thing?  Apparently I have zero depth perception as I was doing a squat to shoulder press with the plate.  I guess my face was a lot closer than I anticipated?  Thankfully, I did not knock myself out.  But I could not stop laughing the remainder of my time at the gym.  Only me!

This was also the day that I spotted one of my Cardiac Rehab patients from 9 years ago at the gym doing the exact cool down/stretching exercises we taught him in class.  It made my day!

Smith press squats 3 x 10

Single leg calf raises 3 x 20

Squat to shoulder press 3 x 10

Band assisted pull ups 3 x 10

TRX Single Arm Row 3 x 10

Rope pull 3 x 45 seconds

5 minutes plan variations

Egoscue exercises in the evening

I stuck with the same run/walk intervals I did on Tuesday even though my plan called for an increase.  Like I said, I’m being ultra conservative. The run felt great!

Morning Flow Yoga at Bending Bodhi

I had my last session with PT Dan.  He said I just need to keep following the plan that I’m doing.  He asked me different scenarios about what would I do if I started to feel pain again on my fibula in 1 month, 3 months, 6 months, 1 year, etc.  My first honest answer with each one?  Freak out.  But after that, the best thing to do is rest it to see if it goes away.  And then freak out…kidding.  Sort of.

Rest day!


I decided to sleep in rather than get a workout in before the morning kid events (last baseball game of the spring season + gymnastics) took place.  After that was all done, I still had some errands to run.  By the time I got home, I was tired.  I really didn’t feel like working out so instead I took Cooper for a 30 minute walk while the kids’ rode their scooters. Some days you just lay low and call it good.


I woke up to gray skies, a light mist and high humidity.  I usually hate running in the rain but a light mist is nice.  I made another increase in run intervals: run 15×2, with 2 minute walk in between.  It felt awesome.

Next week brings my first run of 30 minutes straight running.  I’m excited!

Linking up with Hoho/Tricia for the weekly workout wrap up.

How was your week in workouts?

What’s the most embarrassing thing you’ve ever done at the gym?

  1. LOL to knocking yourself in the head with a weight!! When you can’t laugh with someone else about it, you feel extra dumb, right? I know because I’ve done stuff like that!!
    SO happy to get to run more and more with less walking! And I totally get those days when oops, I didn’t do my workout. Oh well.

    1. I would have loved to have someone laugh with me rather than concerned I was going to fall to the floor. It was freakin’ hilarious!

  2. Is it sad this woman who lives in the land of scorching sun sees gray skies and best and thanks Coleman that sounds awesome. I will have that 🙂

  3. I love your first picture! That sunrise is gorgeous! I am cracking up at you smacking yourself in the face! Did it leave a bruise? Thankfully I have never done anything like that, but I have worried that I will. 🙂 I hope you have a good week of running and good luck on your 30 minute run!

  4. I love your first picture! The sunrise is gorgeous! I’m cracking up at you smacking yourself in the face! Did it leave a bruise? I have never done anything like that, but I have worried that I will. I hope you have a great week of running this week and good luck on your 30 minute run!

    1. Thanks! It did leave a big ol’ bruise but not nearly as noticeable as I thought it would be. It still hurts when I wiggle my forehead. Lol!

  5. Ouch to the weight to the head! I’ve had plenty of embarrassing moments at the gym, including recently sending an under-inflated stability ball shooting across the room when I tried to do hamstring curls on it. That’s so great that you are building up those run intervals so much!

    1. Lol! I’ve done that one too. And I’ve fallen off one while trying to maneuver heavy weights and an exercise that involved way more coordination than I possess.

  6. Nice workouts girl! Shame about the accident there haha! Have you ever considered doing one of those workout programs like kayla itsines BBG? I was thinking about it but found a review thats kinda bad – – seems super expensive so maybe I wont buy it. maybe you have some other recommendations?

    Thanks a bunch,

  7. Ouch on the weight! I would totally do something like that! Great week of workouts and I love seeing your running increase … planning to ease back in next week and I know I need to do something like your plan. Those post injury aches always freak me out too but you are doing everything right.

  8. So nice to see you back running again!

    I am one of those people who would smack themselves in the head with a plate. Sometimes I don’t even say anything because Becky gets so much entertainment out of my antics. Sigh…
