Last Week’s Workouts

Last week's workouts } happyfitmama.com

I hope everyone had a great long weekend.  It’s hard to believe that it’s the end of May and summer is here.  I love summer running and will never complain about it being too hot or humid because winter and frigid temps will be here before we know it.  Like over the weekend…it was mid 80s on Saturday and mid 50s on Sunday. Wtf?!?!

Wednesday

7.1 mile run, 8:46 avg pace, 445 ft elev gain

The plan called for rolling hills and 1:30 pick ups at every mile.  When Kyle and I started to running, I joked that I planned the route so we’d hit the base of the mega hills in town right at the mile markers.  As luck would have it, we did. Needless to say, the sweat was flowing.  A lot!

You smell that?  That’s what awesome smells like. 🙂

Thursday

strength training

DB bench press

DB pull over

renegade row

reverse grip barbell row

side lunge/ DB clean

bench steps ups with DB shoulder press

weighted thrusters

KB pendulum lunges

KB single leg deadlift

med ball squats

6 mile run, 8:54 avg pace, 254 ft elev gain

I don’t do it nearly as much as I should, but running AFTER lifting always makes me feel like I’m running on Bambi legs aka tired legs.

Friday

REST DAY!

Saturday

5 mile run, 8:45 avg pace, 229 ft elev gain

It was so nice to run whenever I wanted and not be rushed to get to gymnastics, soccer or baseball on a Saturday.  The temps and humidity were up by the time I made it out the door.  Have I mentioned lately that I’m really enjoying the heat?  That is except when I run into my super speedy friend during the last 1/4 mile of my run.  She’s gliding along effortlessly and I feel like I’m all out sprinting to keep up with her AND to carry on a conversation.  Must have been the humidity that made me feel like I was gasping for air.  Hahaha!

 

Sunday

10 mile run, 9:07 avg pace, 338 ft elev gain

I really wasn’t in the mood to run solo for my long run.  It seemed like almost all my friends were running races.  But as luck would have it, Kyle had 10 on her plan also so we decided to meet up.  Originally we were planning for a rolling hill run but we both felt the need for some Vitamin Sea.  The miles flew as we chatted the whole time.  We even did some obstacle course training by jumping a chain link fence.  Don’t worry, we weren’t doing anything illegal…I think.

FYI – maneuvering over a fence is a lot harder now compared to in my teens or 20s. My hand and leg agree.  #ouch

  1. I am definitely enjoying the warmer weather but the humidity is killing me. Still, I would rather run in this weather than in the cold! I love that you can go do your long run by the ocean. That sounds perfect!

  2. The weekend weather was bananas! It was humid and hot Sat and Sunday we were freezing! We spent the weekend in VT and I did not bring appropriate clothing for either day!?
    Sounds like a great weekend of running for you though!! And I’m sure it was the humidity that kept you from feeling like a gazelle in that last mile 🙂

  3. Wow. That sunrise definitely made hill running worth the effort! It looks like a beautiful location for your Sunday long run. Great conversation with a friend, great running temperature, and…you weren’t arrested for trespassing. 😉 Thanks for linking!

  4. How fun that you had some good runs with your friend! Shenanigans too! It’s more fun than running alone, that’s for sure.

    I hope the weather sticks around. What’s up with that cold Sunday?

  5. I’m loving this warm weather too! Wishing I was running more than I am but I’m slowly getting there. Two meet ups with friends for runs this week is so fun!
