Weekly Training Update: 11/11-11/17

The good news is that my legs are starting to feel like my own. The bad news is ... there is no bad news. I feel like I had a solid week of workouts that honored my body and effort I put forth at Veterans Marathon.

I spent a lot of time on low impact, low intensity cardio. You know, the stuff I tend to eschew - elliptical, bike, walking on the treadmill. I also did a lot of things in the gap between dropping off Miles at daycare and going to work so that I could give my body some extra sleep. When that didn't work out, I hopped on the treadmill after Miles went to bed.

It didn't hurt that I'm trying to get up to speed on season 4 of "The Walking Dead." I figure if I'm going to spend all that time in front of a screen that I should be moving as I do it. Only two more episodes to go!

By the way, did you know that Danai Guirira, who plays Michonne, is a fan of Jillian Michaels' workouts? I was listening to a Jillian podcast during which Danai was a guest, and she said she will put in a JM DVD in the morning. So, it seems, doing 6 Week Six-Pack will land me on TV. Obviously.

The week, in workouts:

Monday: Rest
Tuesday: 45-minute walk
Wednesday: Elliptical + Bodypump
Thursday: 30-minute walk + Ripped
Friday: 3.08-mile run + Heated yoga
Saturday: 4.25-mile run + Bodypump
Sunday: 3.2-mile run + 40-minute walk


  1. Jillian Michaels is back on my radar these days. Obviously I'm going to have Danai's body in no time. Haha.

    Thinking about any more races? There is an awesome half out here in May. Goes right down the Poudre Canyon. Just throwing it out there. :-)

    1. You temptress! I am hoping to do a spring half though there's nothing picked out. Mark did mention, though, the possibility of going to CO in the summer! Any races we could plan around ;)
