Weekly Training Log – Week of October 27th

First of all, thank you to all those who offered suggestions about how to rediscover my interest in yoga.  I cannot thank you enough for taking the time to read about my current struggle, and for offering your insight.  Your feedback is definitely appreciated, and I’m starting to explore some of my options.

Secondly, congrats to all those who raced this weekend, especially those who ran the New York City Marathon.  The weather definitely wasn’t on your side, but you preserved and showed Mother Nature who’s boss!  You all definitely inspired me to push myself at the gym yesterday afternoon!

Yesterday’s gym workout was a great way to cap off another strong week of training.  The training highlight of my week was sharing a weeknight run with Preston at sunset.  It wasn’t a speedy run, but it was great to be able to chat about our day while out on a run together.

    I’ve been bad and slacked off on weight training the past two weeks :-/ I have PT once during the week so that’s covering my legs but I have to get back to upper body and corework.

  3. Great job on your workouts for the week. I do not spend near the amount I should on weight training. I need to work on that.

    Great week! The run you guys had together sounds so nice 🙂 I don’t spend enough time on weight training. I get some in yoga but that’s mostly core and lower body. I haven’t been doing much for my upper body (other than some pushups) and I probably need to change that.

  5. Great week!! and I love that you and Preston share so much of your fitness together – so important and FUN! you’re a lucky gal 😉

  6. Sounds like a great week! Found your blog through the Team #runDisney page and I look forward to reading more 🙂

    I strength train between two and three hours a week at a minimum. It’s definitely been an important part of my overall fitness regime and has helped me become a stronger runner for sure!

    I try to do strength work three times a week on non racing weeks. I actually think I may try to work with a trainer again after we get settled in our new home. However, I am doing plenty packing and lifting household stuff at the moment!

  8. Jennifer says:

    I love that you and Preston run together 🙂 I try to get in 2 x 60 minute sessions of strength a week. THANKS so much for your wonderful messages this weekend!!

    Right now I’m starting back into strength training, I hope to do it at least 2 hours per week!
