Rest Then Run {Weekly Workouts}

Good Monday to ya!

It felt great to detox from social media this past weekend and enjoy (a busy, on-the-go) Mother-Daughter Weekend to the fullest.

Now it’s Monday, and my body is ready for a day of true rest. There was a lot of “resting” last week, too, so I guess it’s the name of the game lately.


Workouts | Week of July 28

MondayTone It Up Tabata Workout + 30 sets of stairs

Tuesday – 6 mile run at 97F(!) + bike commute to work

WednesdayRest (bike commute to work x2) 

ThursdayRest (nap needed!)

Friday – 4 rounds of this dumbbell workout (via Instagram) + 3 rounds of this kettlebell workout + 25 sets of stairs + 25 push-ups

SaturdayRest – solid amount of walking

Sunday – 6.25 mile run

  • I enjoyed riding my bike to work a couple of days this week, despite the heat. I hope to keep riding the short commute to and from work at least 1-2x per week through the cool fall days.
  • Finally… I met my 10K training game plan by completing two, six mile runs this week. They were very similar in route, but Sunday’s cooler AM run felt like a breeze compared to Tuesday’s challenge in nearly triple digit heat.
  • Race Day is this Sunday! Ready or not, here I come.

    I am jealous of your bike rides to work. I have considered trying it at least one day a week, but I have to wear business attire and carry a computer bag with me at all times so I need to get creative! Thanks for the inspiration! Love Mother/Daughter weekends! I just had an epic mother daughter weekend a few weeks ago!
