Weekly Training Update: 6/10-6/16

I wish I could tell you about my training last week. I do. Really. As I look back on the week, though, I can't remember much.

I know I ran - thanks to the MOTOACTV. I know I taught my classes - thanks to my paycheck. And I know I hydrated, thanks to the nearly empty Cherry Limeade and Watermelon nuun tubes. It will be a sad day when those were gone.

To give you a highlight, a stellar story or something quippy, I'm not sure I can. I can tell you that I did a speed workout on Friday that I gleaned from Runner's World. It's a 1-2-3 ladder that you can customize to your needs. It was hard. I wanted to not do it. But I did.

And that's that.

  1. Ladders. Barf.

    Love that pic of you! Look at your arm definition! :)

    What did you decide on Garmin vs that other thing?

  2. Look at those arms... rawr!

  3. Was this the ladder where the distances get LONGER? Cause that looked tough. Good work! I prefer the ones where you start long and it gets shorter and faster. What were your distances?

    1. The ladder is 1 min hard, 1 min rest, 2 min hard, 2 min rest, 3 min hard, 3 min rest. You can be done there or descend-ascent to your heart's content. I did 1-2-3-2-1 for the 4.17-miler, which included warmup and cool down. I much prefer the start long, finish shorter route, as well, because that 3 minutes felt like FOREVER.

    2. Yow! Might have to try that one. Since I don't have a GPS device (just a stopwatch), I like running for time.

  4. Never done a ladders workout...sounds scary so major kudos to you for getting it done! You had a great week!! :0)

  5. My spin classes also prefer to start long and end short when doing intervals!

  6. Damn, look at those arms! You are getting ripped lady. I would like to hire you as my personal, whip my ass into shape post-baby, trainer just to get arms like that.

  7. You are looking strong and fit, lady!!!!! I wish I lived closer to I could take your classes :) Awesome week

  8. Love those arm muscles! Great week of working out, I am sure teaching those classes really helps to keep on track!

  9. WOW!! your muscles look pretty intense - you could TOTALLY beat someone up or at least make them very afraid :)

  10. i'm sorry but holy shit!!! look at your guns!!! you are amazing.
