I’ve been doing really well, but somehow strained my knee on Friday so I have been taking it a little easier. Yesterday I did 3 miles, and ab work.

Unfortunately taking my dog out this morning, I slipped on the ice and it feels much, much worse.  I have been using ice all day, but will probably take the off from the gym to rest it a little.

Back at it tomorrow though!

A lot better once I got my stitches out! Managed two solid workouts and was a bit worried how I was going to get a workout yesterday (had a bachelorette, today is a public holiday)… part of the bachelorette day turned out to be an hour-long belly dancing lesson! That was definitely an abs and hips workout, arms too! Hoping to keep that up this week with at least 30 mins of exercise EVERY day.

I’m doing pretty well.  Last Tuesday, I hurt my back doing JM’s 6 week 6 pack, so I had to go to the chiropractor and forego my Wednesday and Thursday plans for kickboxing.  But I was feeling a lot better by the weekend, so both Saturday and Sunday I ran for 3 miles and did 6 week 6 pack.  I also played tennis for an hour on Saturday.

I want to workout at least a half hour everyday this week.  Hopefully an hour on Tuesday, Thursday, and Saturday because I have more time.  I definitely want to make it to at least one kickboxing class this week (probably Thursday), so that will be my workout for that day.

I’ve been doing awesome–I’ve run about 30 miles each week for the last two weeks and lifted weights twice each week. Woo!

I’m a little more tired than usual though (all that running!) so I’m going to try and get some more sleep in to fuel these workouts…

@flyinpig3: Thanks! I did upper body and abs!  Thankfully it feels MUCH better today.  Still twinges when I put a lot of pressure on it, so I will stick to the elliptical today!

Hips and abs were still aching a bit yesterday after the belly dancing the day before so just went for a treadmill walk and run yesterday. It’s starting to become a habit – I feel crappier if I don’t exercise so it motivates me to do it!

@flyinpig3: Damn girl, 7 miles! Wow! I am gearing up to go before the storm hits.  Luckily our apartment complex has a really nice gym, so it is very close.  I am going to do my normal 8.5 miles on the elliptical, and maybe P90X Ab Ripper if I am feeling ambitious 🙂 We will see.  I am so happy my knee feels better.  I have hurt myself before with cheerleading and such, but it felt different, more serious – thankfully resting and icing seems to be helping tremendously.

last week was pretty pathetic…went to the gym once, and attempted to do “6 week. 6 pack”.  I got through about a quarter of the Jillian Michaels workout before realizing my living room just isn’t big enough for my 6 foot tall body and super long arms to spread all out!

Headed to the gym tonight, and I am really going to push myself to go everyday this week (assuming we aren’t snowed in tomorrow…8 inches expected).

@Taylor4: 30 miles is great! I’m only around 20 right now and feeling pressure to up it in order to get better trained for my half marathon in May. What’s your running schedule like?

Last Thursday I was too lazy to do the scheduled track workout I was going to do, plus all my friends I normally work out with were bailing for a ski trip, so my husband and I decided to just do two miles on the track and call it a day. Too bad our fast friend actually was there and willing to do the workout with us- we ended up doing mile one in 6:48ish, took a 200 meter break and then did the second mile in 6:35. It was good but I haven’t moved that quickly in awhile. I was THRILLED when cross fit on friday was a running based one, 1 mile, 51 pull-ups, 1 mile. For once I wasn’t last, I was actually third! I ran super fast on the first mile, needed some serious assistances with the pull-ups (three bands!) and then it was weird to not be able to feel my arms for the first quarter of the second mile. Crazy good workout though.

We were lazy all weekend, walked about 5 miles on Sunday and did not do a long run… ugh, it is so hard for us to get motivated when it’s not a big group of people. 

Today’s crossfit was killer, another arm based one, so it actually hurts a bit to sit and type, BUT I’m seeing results and my husband is really proud of me.

Here’s hoping you bees aren’t too snowed in!!

@Linz1231: feel better!!

@seattlemeg: Wow! 6:35 that’s awesome! I am NOT running for speed at all so I’m impressed! I just get out there (or due to all this crummy weather, on my treadmill) and grind out the miles. Right now I’m not training for anything so I do 4-5 miles 5 days a week, one rest day and one longer 7-8 mile run on the weekend. 🙂

I’m thinking I might do a sprint tri later this year so maybe I’ll cut down mileage and work on speed. 🙂
