Motivation Monday: FitFluential March Miles and last week’s exercise round up

Hey guys! Happy Monday!

As always, I am sharing my last week’s exercise recap with you today! I can finally do that as I am back in the game – no more skipping, slacking, etc. etc. Last week was as close to my normal exercise routine as possible – that was my goal and I have accomplished what I’d planned! Here’s how it was:

{MONDAY} Cycling class with Jim.

I am still working on my resistance loading – it is amazing how hard it is psychologically to put more resistance on the wheel and push yourself, as opposed to pushing yourself to go faster with a lighter wheel. I only went for 9.2 miles this time, but oh did I sweat for those nine point damn two miles!

Totally rocked my Spinningยฎ bandana! Those things are great for blocking sweat. I have no idea why I’ve never worn one before!

I am also doing a 100 mile March challenge by FitFluential! So I walked 2.80 miles on Monday, too to get my #ffmarchmiles in ๐Ÿ™‚

I am loving this challenge! It is amazing how it makes you realize that despite all the workouts you do during the week, you don’t spend all that much time walking at all…
Note the good use I am putting my Reebok pedometer to ๐Ÿ™‚


{TUESDAY} Rest Day

Had a rest day from exercise, but did some walking for the March miles!

{WEDNESDAY} Yoga and more

Wednesday night is yoga night! Oh it felt soooo good to stretch!

I also hit the gym for a quick walk/run on a treadmill and some weights before yoga.

And of course I had to log some FF March miles, too!

{THURSDAY} Treadmill + Weights

I initially planned a rest day on Thursday, but that didn’t happen ๐Ÿ™‚ I did go to the gym – walked/ran on a treadmill and did some weights after work!

I am feeling very good about my latest treadmill “adventures”. It is hard to get back into running when you have never actually been a runner in the first place, and when you decided to start being one – you got injured. I am smarter this time. I take it slow. I am being careful. I take it one minute at a time. And it feels great ๐Ÿ™‚
Here’s what Thursday #ffmarchmiles looked like:

{FRIDAY} Yoga

Friday night is yoga night too, you know. I kind of figured it counts as a rest day ๐Ÿ™‚

{SUNDAY} Rest Day

Well, so called “Rest Day”…My husband is working on our kitchen, so there were a lot of miles done around the house – cleaning, cleaning and cleaning some more:

And that’s all she wrote ๐Ÿ™‚

  1. I had a great leg workout last week! Been working on perfecting that squat form. Wednesdays workout also left me feeling great, did a plyo leg circuit.
