My Training (week 23)

I have big goals for June, so in order to keep myself on track, I will start posting my weekly training.  I would like to attend 3 classes a week at the gym, but sometimes Zoe’s sleeping and feeding schedules doesn’t corporate. Her schedule is more important, so I will not change that. But in case we can not make it to a class, I will replace the class with online videos or DVD’s. So, no excuses!!


  • Running: 3 runs of at least 3 miles
  • Strength training: 1 hour
  • Yoga: 1 hour
  • Core: 30 min


  • Missed the class, so I ran 3x 1 mile and in between did some weights (after 1st mile: abs, biceps and triceps. after 2nd mile: lat, chest and shoulder, after 3rd mile: good final stretch)


  • Rest

Wednesday: National Running Day!

  • We met at the local running store to run 6 miles, but it was super hot and I just could not keep up. I ran 1.5 miles and walked 2.5 miles).
  • In the afternoon I did 25 minutes of yoga (class 1: Essential Yoga), which I found on Runner’s World Yoga Center. It was challenging!

  • Rest. I just felt we should stay at home today and take it easy, we were running around all week.


  • I ran 3 miles on TM in 31 min
  • 20 min of core exercises (random ones I found online)


  • Rest

Sunday: Family day!

Total miles run: 3 runs, total of 10 miles (7.5 ran, 2.5 walked)

Total minutes of cross training:

  • Strength training: ~ 20 minutes
  • Yoga: 45 minutes
  • Core: 20 min

Summary: I was really exhausted after Wednesday’s run/walk. I needed a rest day and felt much better on Friday. Running outside is tough for me, it’s hot and humid already. Since I’m not racing until the fall, I will keep my workouts indoor for a little while. I did all the planned workouts, so this makes me happy, however some where not as long as I was hoping for. But it was a good start, let’s try again next week!

    You’re amazing! You must motivate me once I get this child out of me so I can get back into my normal clothes (which I haven’t seen in years). I miss those clothes! Keep up the awesome work!
