Fitness Friday: Weekly Workout Recap

Happy Memorial Day weekend everyone!  We have big plans for this weekend, including a long training run, lots of swimming, and a bunch of cooking out - BUT, first we have to do our Fitness Friday link-up with Running Bloggers!

Here's my recap of last week's workouts:

Monday:  30 minute resistance/RPM workout on the elliptical + 15 minutes upper body strength training using Sworkit

Tuesday:  Ran 4.07 miles at 11:03 min/mile pace

Wednesday:  Walked 2 miles on the treadmill at 15 min/mile pace and 4% incline (I needed a cross-training exercise on my treadmill due to scheduling and this was a pretty good one, although next time I'll up the incline more) + 10 minutes ab work using Sworkit

Thursday:  Ran 4.4 miles at 10:13 min/mile pace

Friday:  Rest

Saturday:  Ran 3 miles at 10:06 min/mile pace

Sunday:  I usually take off on Sunday but I did 20 minutes of kickboxing with Jillian + 10 minutes of ab work with Sworkit since I had to take Monday as a rest day due to a doctor's appointment

And last but not least, a little inspiration to get us through the holiday weekend workouts:

I hope you  have a wonderful Memorial Day weekend!

QOTD:  Do you ever walk the treadmill on an incline for cross training?  If so, what % incline?


  1. Nice Job and nice write up :) Saying Hi from the Fitness Friday Linkup.

  2. Nice job this week! You got a lot of running in!!

    1. I am trying to ramp up my mileage because as soon as Dumbo is over I jump into training for the St. Jude marathon; don't want to shock my system ;)

  3. I try not to use the treadmill if possible. Since last year I have only used the treadmill once. I prefer finding a hill or freeway overpass to give myself the incline when needed.

    1. I'm not a fan but I don't like being outside in the dark by myself so sometimes it's a necessary evil :)
