Monday: Bob Harper's cardio workout, then Ab-Ripper X./Bob Harper's Cardio - no Ab Ripper
Tuesday: 2 or 3 mile run (depends on foot) - Jillian Michaels Killer Buns and Thighs/3 mi run/JM DVD
Wednesday: 1 hour pool running/nothing
Thursday: Jillian Michaels Banish Fat/Boost Metabalism/Kenpo X
Friday: 2 or 3 mile run - Zuzuka light you tube workout/3.25 mile run
Saturday: Firm Power Yoga/nothing
Sunday: 4 mile run (hopefully if foot is holding up well)/Shamrock run - 5k and 1k
So this week was ok. My running was pretty good, I increased my mileage a little bit from last week, and my foot held up well, so that's encouraging. My daughter was sick all week, so my routine was thrown completely off and accounts for Wednesday's unplanned rest day. Thursday I felt like punching and kicking (working out some aggression I guess?) so I did Kenpo X instead of the Jillian Michael's workout. I have no excuse for Saturday.
Going forward - plan for this week:
Monday: Bob Harper Cardio
Tuesday: 3 mile run/JM Killer buns and thighs
Wednesday: Jillian Michaels Banish Fat/Boost Metabolism
Thursday: 1 hour pool running
Friday: 3 mile run/20 min Pilates workout
Saturday: Firm Power Yoga and Zuzka Light workout
Sunday: 4 mile run
We'll see how that goes!
This weekend we did the Shamrock run as a family. My husband ran the 8k and I ran the 5k with my son and the 1k "Leprachaun Lap" with my daughter. It was a fun morning, although brrrr freezing! I love the Shamrock run because it's such a big Portland event. The weather is usually guaranteed to be crappy - yesterday it was cold/wet and a few snow flakes thrown in - yet the event draws 30 thousand people. I just love that.
We were running late to get to the race, so I had to drop my husband off to make his start time while I found parking - which means no pix of all of us at the race. My sweet sister met me to help out with the kids while I ran each race. Here's a few pix of the morning...
My daughter's run was first - she had a 1k run, and she was NOT into it.
|Don't let the smile fool you - she didn't want to run...|
Next was my son's race - the 5k. We lined up with about a bajillion other people and waited....and waited....and waited....
After everyone was done (my hubby finished his 8k while my son and I were starting the 5k) - we drove to a restaurant for a nice big breakfast. We met my running buddy Michelle there with her family - Michelle ran the 15k, which is one of my favorite races, and her kids and husband did the 5k.
|Shamrock kids, in front of the beer sign...nice...|
All in all it was a great morning based on running and family, which will always make me happy. I wish I could have run the 15k, but next year I will be back to rock it for sure!
