Hockey, hiking & my workout summary 9/23-9/29

This weekend started off very similar to last weekend. We went to another Capitals pre-season game because tickets were dirt cheap. I’m feeling spoiled and will probably be sad when next friday comes and we don’t go to a game.

The next morning I had to get up early for the TRX training class. It was an 8 hour class full of great information and lots of working out. It was so exhausting and i’m sore in places I haven’t been in a while.  I can’t wait to get to work this week and test out my new knowledge of the TRX course in the gym. The instructor showed me a few exercises to stretch out my chest, and workout my back because runners tend to have their shoulders pulled forward (I do for sure).

Even though my body was sore Cameron and I went on an early morning hike. (okay, it was noon, but on a Sunday it feels early). He wanted to make it back in time to watch football, which is cool with me cause that means more time to talk to you guys! Take a look at a few pictures from our hike…

My weekly workout summary:

Monday: 8 min leg workout

Tuesday: 5.5 mile run 8:27/pace, 10 min abs + foam rolling

Wednesday:  6 mile easy run 8:26/pace

Thursday: 15 min Triceps, 15 min abs

Friday: Rest

Saturday: Full Body TRX (2+ hours)

Sunday: 4 mile hike

Total Miles: 11.5 + 4 mile hike

My mileage was a little low for my liking this week, but my legs were wrecked from this week’s workouts and it’s always hard for me to get back into running 4-5 days a week after a race . RIght now football is on the tv, I just had a cup of hot chocolate, and after a weekend of cross training I’ll be ready to run tomorrow.

Did everyone have a cup of coffee today? It’s National Coffee Day!
