Last week’s workouts had me feeling a little bit of a spark that’s been missing in the past month. My plantar fasciitis is improving (a lot!) and the humidity has decreased. Things are looking up! So much so that I started to think that I might actually be able to run some of the races I have my eye on this fall. I don’t want to jinx anything but there’s hope!
3.2 mile run
It was a rainy and super dark morning. I had planned on running more but I took my sweet time getting ready because it was so dark. I’m not ready for that! I squeezed in 3.2 before having to head home to get ready for work.
30 minutes Stepmill
DB bench press
DB pull overs
Decline push ups
TRX tricep ext
TRX bicep curl
Single leg deadlift w/ KB clean
Eccentric pull ups

5.3 mile run, 2 mega hill repeats with Kyle
I could tell it was a long time since I’ve done the mega hill repeats. I decided to not push too much and only ran half way up the hill and walked the rest to hopefully keep my PF happy. Btw – Kyle ran the 10k mountain race at Killington on Saturday and got first in her age group. Way to go, girl!

Cable tricep ext

6 mile run
This was my longest run in over a month. At first, it made me sad that I considered 6 miles a “long” run. A month ago, 6 miles was an average daily run. I’ve been babying my PF and decreased my weekly mileage big time. With lower humidity and a temp of 54 degrees (what?!?!) I was feeling pretty good. And my PF played nice too. It was a little sore afterwards but I stretched and iced it with my foot roller. By the afternoon, it was all good. It even felt decent despite wearing non supportive shoes to a wedding that night. Woohoo!
I was solo parenting on Sunday but still wanted to get some kind of workout in. The kids wanted to go to the park so I combined the two. I even got the kids to join in for parts of it. The above pic was after the workout so clearly you can tell they loved it!
Who says you need a gym to get in a quality workout!
How was your week in workouts?
Linking up with Hoho and Wendy for the weekly workout wrap up.
