Fitness Friday: Weekly Workout Recap

Time for my Fitness Friday weekly workout recap with Running Bloggers!


Here's last week's recap:


Monday:  Memorial Day but I still managed to fit in 20 minutes of kickboxing with Jillian and 15 minutes of ab work using Nike Training Club (NTC)'s Ab Burner workout

Tuesday:  I was off work so the BIL and I hit the Greenline - wish we had hit it earlier in the day b/c it was HOT! 4 miles at a 10:52 min/mile pace

Wednesday:  30 minute resistance/RPM elliptical workout plus 10 minutes of lower body strength training using Sworkit

Thursday:  Yucky weather forced me indoors for a 4.03 mile run on the treadmill, 11:09 min/mile pace.  I followed that up with 15 minutes of upper arm strength training using NTC's Arm Sculptor workout

Friday:  30 minutes of yoga plus 15 minutes of ab work, both done with Sworkit.  I decided to try something different and I really liked the yoga program; I will be doing that one again!

Saturday:  3 mile run on the treadmill before work at an 11:01 min/mile pace

Sunday:  Rest

QOTD:  Have you ever tried yoga?  If so, do you go to a class or use a video at home?  And (3 part question, sorry!), if you use a video at home, which one??

  1. I love yoga! I do yoga every day--even if it's just for five minutes. I'm a teacher so I often do it on my own, will do it in a studio, or will take an online class at yogaglo.com or yogavibes.com! :)

  2. I have wanted to regularly get into yoga for the past year now. I finally found a good studio close to home that I like...now the problem is getting myself there each week! ;)

    A good at home option for yoga, especially for beginners, is Gymagogo.com. It's an online live class with an instructor, and only the instructor can see you, not the rest of the class members. The instructor gives you corrections on form or positive feedback through the video. It's very awesome and completely free for now, as it has just started up.

  3. I got to a class twice a week as part of my recovery. It forces me to stretch. I attend a Yoga lite class so it is all basic and fundamental poses allowing me to get the benefits of stretching.

    1. I've had a couple of minor things bothering me lately and I think my lack of proper stretching was a contributor; this definitely makes me take the time!

  4. Beginner yoga here, and I use an app called Yoga for Runners. I'm hoping to get a little more advanced with it this summer. Happy Friday!

  5. Yoga is my running friend.
    I'm up visiting my parents for the long weekend, and they have hot yoga here. It goes for 90 mins in a 40c |104f room. And wow just fantastic. I really enjoyed it. That was the first time that I had ever done a yoga class (with a live teacher as oppose to a dvd), and hot yoga at that. If you have hot Bikram yoga near you then you should seriously try it. If you are thinking but it's 90mins, that seriously really long, it goes by really really fast, and by the end of it it will feel like you ran for 90mins.
    As for yoga dvd's I'm picky, I do like katy appleton's 'geri' yoga (it's the sun salutation). Namaste yoga is good, but it's short. P90x overs yogax which goes for 90mins and is really good as well, but Tony is a bit of a goof.

    1. I'm pretty sure they have a hot yoga class in Memphis; if it's not too far I'll have to try it!

  6. I LOVE yoga, but don't have time to go to a studio lately, so I've been doing vids from youtube. I really like Tara Styles & Bexlife.
