5 miles at 8:10 pace, on the treadmill while watching Gilmore Girls just to keep things fun.
30 min Pilates
3 miles at 8:00 pace, on treadmill.
30 minutes weights, focusing on arms
HIIT for 1 hour (if you do this workout, I don't believe it really burns 800 calories, but probably more like 400...sorry to be a Debbie downer)

RIPPED class for 1 hour (similar to a HIIT workout with weights)
5.5 miles on the trail at 8:30 pace, minus the last mile which was a 6:30 pace in desperate efforts to get back to the Y before child watch closed on my 3 kids. Remember that first week back to school? Yea, this workout was squeezed into my morning after working with a crying 3rd grader.
|Said 3rd grader, minus tears|
6.5 miles on the road at 8:35 pace. SORE CITY. I was so crazy sore and tired by Saturday that I felt like I was crawling down the road. But the weather was perfect and I just tried to enjoy some "quiet time".
My goal for the week was 20 miles with some cross training and I'm thankful I got it in. Some times it's easy for me to discount my workouts because they're not as long or as fast as Ben's. That's the girl side of fitness; we are always comparing ourselves to others and not allowing ourselves to be okay with who we are, where we are.
