Today I’m sharing a quick recap of my workouts from the past week.
There’s been a lot of running happening this week, along with a strength workout and yoga later today. I’m really glad that I decided to add in the running. I’m enjoying it a lot and it definitely helps with the anxiety. It’s definitely made me realize how important it is to stretch every day. If I’m short on time and decide to skip it then I definitely feel it in my hips the next day. The Peloton app has been key in getting all of the stretching done after my workouts. It’s so much easier to have someone else tell me exactly what to do.
My first workout of the week was a walk/run treadmill workout. I did 1 minute run/2 minute walk intervals for 30 minutes. It felt really good to be back at doing cardio workouts after two days away from them over the weekend.
My second cardio workout was another walk/run interval treadmill. I listened to a podcast while I ran and the time flew by. I was done before I knew it. It definitely feels like the runs are getting easier, which feels pretty good.
Rest day. I had an early appointment so I opted to get a little extra sleep instead of workout.
Once again I found myself on the treadmill on Friday. I did my last workout at the current 1 minute run/2 minute walk. Next week I’m kicking it up a notch and doing 1 minute run/1 minute walk.
My plan for today to do some yoga on the Peloton app.
Just in case you missed it earlier this week, I signed up for my very first 5K! I’m pretty excited about it even though it’s just going to be a virtual race. It’s nice to have a goal that I’m working towards when I’m feeling less than motivated to do my running workouts on the treadmill. If you have any first race advice for me I’d love to hear it!
