Last week was another good week of training. I’m still high on motivation and excitement from getting back into things after time off for an injury. I took my first spin class since before physical therapy last Monday and it felt great. Spinning is my favorite form of cross training. It’s high-energy, fun and blasts away calories while boosting my cardio fitness.
For the week I ran 18 miles. Here’s the training breakdown by day:
Monday: Spin class in the morning and 20 minutes on the elliptical at the office gym in the afternoon.
Tuesday: An early morning run took me 3 easy miles up Wilson Blvd. to a session with one of my personal training clients.
Wednesday: I got in 50 minutes on the elliptical at the office gym.
Thursday: A very early run with the Pacers Fun Run group took me 5 easy miles through Georgetown and back over the Memorial Bridge.
Friday: I hit the gym at my building before work for 45 minutes on the elliptical.
Saturday: I got to run in shorts and a tank in mid January on the sunny streets of St. Pete in Florida for 6 easy miles.
Sunday: 4 miles easy once again in sunny Florida before my quick weekend trip to visit my grandparents came to an end. Looks like temps will be a bit cooler to run in back in D.C. this week.
