Weekly Workout Roundup – Feb. 17 – 23

I am over halfway through the 30 Day Shred, now, and I am getting tired. After awhile it just wears on me to be doing a short but intense workout in the morning in addition to maintaining my usual running schedule. But there’s only ten days to go, so I’m sticking with it! Luckily the 30 Day Shred is going to wrap up right before I have 3 longer races back to back to back (10 miler on 3/2, trail half on 3/8, road half on 3/16). The first thing I’m going to do when this is over is take a complete rest day!

Monday- AM: 30 Day Shred, day 13 level 2 workout.

PM: Took advantage of the extra day off of work and went for a 5 mile run in the late afternoon on the roads around our house. My legs were a bit tired from Saturday’s 13 miler, but not too bad. There was still plenty of snow on the ground at this point.

Tuesday- AM: 30 Day Shred, day 14 level 2 workout.

Wednesday- AM: 30 Day Shred, level 2 day 15

PM: 3.5 mile run with Kim. We started out on the Dora Trail, but it was still snow covered in several places. It was 50 degrees outside, which felt glorious. However, the warmer temperatures were melting the snow, and we were running on a mix of snow, ice, and slush. After a little over 2 miles we got off of the trail and ran around town instead.

Thursday- AM: 30 Day Shred, level 2 day 16

PM: 4 mile run on the roads around our house. It was in the 50’s outside and I ran in shorts. It felt a bit like spring, but we’re not quite there yet. The people that live down the road from us recently put this sign up. It’s a funny sign, but it’s no joke.

“Do not cross this pasture unless you can do it in 9 seconds. The bull can do it in 10”

Friday- 30 Day Shred, level 2 day 17

Saturday- AM: 8 mile run. This run was split into two parts that were only about 20 minutes apart. I put in 3 miles on the treadmill and then headed into town to run 5 more miles with Kim. It was in the 50’s and really felt like spring outside. Its a short reprieve, though, because it’s supposed to get really cold and possibly snow again this week. After our run I went over to Kim’s house to visit her baby 🙂 She’s a little over 2 months old now!

I got home from running and visiting the baby, had a quick snack, and then got my 30 Day Shred workout done. It was another level 2 workout, and day 18.

Sunday- 30 Day Shred, level 2 workout. Day 19.

Total Miles: 20.5 miles

  1. Sounds like a good week. And I am also glad that the weather gave us a respite this weekend but I fear winter isn’t through with us.

    LUD.

    BTW – Took the doors off the Jeep and went for a spin.

    1. Eventually I’ll get up to visit you when the weather is actually nice and you can take me for a spin in the Jeep!

  2. WOW, you’ve got a loaded race schedule coming up! I really need to find some good races to start training for. The lack of training structure is making it way too easy to slack off!

    1. This year is race palooza! 🙂 Having a race on the schedule definitely helps you get out there.

  3. You had a good training week and I love how quickly the trail cleared of the snow. 50° will do that to it!

    1. It was crazy! Here one day gone the next.

  4. Funny sign! Glad you got into MCM!

    1. Technically I’m not in until I complete the MC 17.75K in April, but I’m very close to being in!

  5. So how many 30-day Shred videos are there? We get week 1 free w/ our Xbox but it’s $9.99 to buy the rest.

    You had a great week, as always. Every time you talk about that Dora trail I want to run on it!

    1. It’s just the one DVD, with 3 workouts on it (levels 1, 2, and 3). According to Amazon, it looks like the Jillian Michaels 30 Day Shred DVD is a little less than $10. I’ve seen some people complain that they get bored with the 30 day shred, since it’s just the same three workouts. But for whatever reason I like the repetition.

  6. That fatigue is going to result in stronger legs, improved capacity to run on tired legs, and mental strength. Keep up the good work! 🙂

    1. Thanks for the encouragement! 🙂
