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. 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.

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

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

  5. 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.

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

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

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

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