Weekly Workouts : Jan 12-19

Today I signed up for my first half marathon of 2014 – the 26.2 with Donna in Jacksonville, FL with a few of my favorite runDisney friends!  i’ve known I was doing this half for awhile but just signed up for it today :)

My BRF Brandi ran the 2014 Walt Disney World Marathon last Sunday!  I wish I could have been there to cheer her on, but I was here for her every step on the way.  I knew I had to get a run in, so I decided to run her last 3 miles with her virtually. :)

Monday, January 13
I was going to go to the gym after having dinner with a friend, but dinner didn’t agree with me and I was in bed by 9 that night.

Tuesday, January 14
Today I went out for a quick one mile run (forgot to take a picture once I was done)

Wednesday, January 15
After work I came home, spent some time with Guinness, and headed to the gym.  I did about 20 minutes of upper body weights and then 5 miles on the stationary bike.  I think I was the only one on the bike for a workout.  As I looked down the line of bikes, all I saw were people leisurely peddling and playing on their cell phones.  To each their own!

Thursday, January 16
Knocked out a 2 mile run, then took Guinness for a mile long walk.

Friday, January 17
Rest Day

Saturday, January 18
No run but walked around an outlet mall with the hubby for awhile

Sunday, January 19
Last Monday, a fellow running in Virginia was tragically killed by a drunk driver during her morning run.  She was a wife, mother, and runner.  She was training for the Boston marathon.  Saturday was the official day to run for Meg, but I did mine today.  I was proud of this run, keeping my average pace under 13 minutes.  Unfortunately I didn’t fuel my body properly and had a rough recovery after I was done. 

Total for the week – 11 miles run, 5 miles bike

I’m off of work today for MLK day – starting the day off at the gym with a leg workout and then off to lunch and a day of shopping with my friend Katie!

How did you do for your weekly workout?  What’s your favorite form of cardio aside from running?

Until next time,
