Work Out With Me | This Week's Work Outs

Run - 2 Miles - 219 Calories
Let's talk running! I decided to start from scratch and do the C25K program from the very beginning. I figured it can't hurt to get back to basics and build up to running a full 5K. Then I'll build off that towards my Half Marathon next April. Today was Week 2, Day 2. Love the C25K app for this. It has the plan already built in and will ding when it's time to run and when it's time to walk. 

And, this was my first run wearing my new shoes! I went with the Brooks Adrenaline 22s. I went to the store to try on the Ghost 15 (my usual preference!) but gave these a try and really loved how cushioned they felt. Plus, they were on sale and I had a little bit left over on a gift card! 

Peloton 20 Min Strength Workout - Total Body - 118 Calories
At this point I think we use our Peloton membership mostly for strength classes! The bike rides are always great, but I really have developed a love for the weight classes and the barre classes. Today Blake and I worked out together! It was just a quick 20 minute class, but it was tough! 

Walk - 2 Miles - 237 Calories 
I actually meant to run today, but it just didn't happen. We were just too slow to get going this morning, and ran out of time. I decided I really wanted to go for a walk (and even though I wanted to, it was hard to make myself go anyway) and I'm so glad I did. It was a gorgeous day and it really got my mood turned around. Isn't it funny that I burned more calories walking than I did Sunday running the same distance? Of course it took me twice as long to do the same route, but it's just interesting. 

Run - 2 Miles - 271 Calories
Today was Day 3 of Week 2 on C25K! It was a really good run and I'm feeling really good about doing this program. It was also a really brisk cool morning and that always has been my favorite season to run in. After getting back home I immediately got to work deep cleaning the house. So that's another workout in itself! Especially because I went to town on our couch and vacuumed it like there was no tomorrow. 

Run - 2 Miles - 233 Calories
This run was hard. Week 3 Day 1 of C25K meant a lot longer stretches of running and for some reason my shins were really tight. But I did it! And managed to dodge the raindrops before Tropical Storm Nicole blew through. 

Rest Day!
We had SO much happening Friday. It was a day off from work, but we were having some friends stay with us, our house was getting pressure washed, and I had a last minute doctors appointment all right away in the morning! Hence, rest day. Although, it was probably good to take a break anyway. 

Run - 2 Miles - 299 Calories
Week 3, Day 2! It was really brisk this morning, so it was sort of invigorating - but hard! I'm noticing that I need to do some more stretching before and after my runs. The Peloton app has pre and post run stretches so I might try that next time.
