Weekly Workout Recap: August Week 3 2013

Good morning! What a crazy week.

20130820-1O5A9726-54-(ZF-8198-64045-1-009)

I ended it yesterday with a nice long afternoon nap. My body definitely needed it! While the bottom of my foot isn’t completely healed, it is doing MUCH better than last week. I think race tapering has helped as well as ice and ibuprofen.

If you have been reading along you know this week was a big week for me visiting Baltimore and the Under Armour headquarters. I did two tough workouts while I was there as well as my workouts at home. Take a look:

Sunday: rest

Monday: 3 mile run, legs and abs

Tuesday: circuit workout with Under Armour trainer

Wednesday: Yoga at the four seasons on the roof (amazing!)

Thursday: rest

Friday: one hour stationary bike, triceps

Saturday: 5 mile run

Let me just say, I am STILL sore from my workouts at UA. They kicked my butt and reminded me of muscles I need to work out more often.

Loving my new UA skirt and mesh top. So breathable!

Today is ONE WEEK from the Disneyland half marathon/finish of Dumbo Double Dare, so I will be taking it super easy. I may run 3 on Monday then 1 or 2 on Wednesday, but that’s it for running. I will probably lift on Monday and Tuesday, but Wednesday will be my last workout (besides walking around the parks) I am so excited, can’t wait to go!

QOTD: What do your workouts look like the week of a race or event?

  1. Eek….just a few days and we will be in California! I love your UA skirt, very cute!

  2. You did get in some awesome workouts, nice job!! Good luck this week. I always take it really easy the week of a race, too.

  3. I’ve got a torn ligament in my foot so my workouts are pretty lame right now. I’m sticking to upper body and cycling.
    The UA skirt is super cute too. I really like the fun pink color!!!

  4. Great week!! See you sooooon!! :0)

  5. I had a race on Saturday and I decided not to workout two days before the race. Well more like I didn’t have time. But overall, I am glad I didn’t. I had a PR and was surprised at how fast I ran. I think I’ll do the same for my half marathon this labor day.

  6. The construction is for one, together with then the genre.

    The particular is that generally there are is definitely
    that you simply demand for old fashioned uggs and ugg boots.
    Heat can end up being removed from these boots quickly and forever.
