2023 Weekly Run Down 6/52

I am linking up again for the Weekly Run Down with Kim and Deborah.

I had a very busy week and had to adjust my training a little bit, but I still tried to get all my challenge sessions and my half marathon training runs in. Sometimes, it’s a bit of a puzzle to make it all fit, but that’s also the fun of it. I usually sit down on Sundays to plan out my week. Do you do a bit of ahead planning or are you totally winging it?

How was your training week? Did you get everything done that you wanted to get done?


*GZ Strength = Groovy Zones Strength Challenge
PZ = Groovy Zones Power Zone Challenge
W3C1 = Week 3, Class 1
W3AR1 = Week 3 Accelerator Class 1

  1. That’s a very good training week!! I got most done that I wanted (and a bit more, since I also started running again), but for my core workout at home yesterday I had some odd cramps around a knee and couldn’t do all the reps. But it’s been a busy weekend and busy week overall so maybe my body just wanted me to take it easy.

    1. Sounds like you had a good week overall!

  2. You always have such a great variety of workouts! Your comment about the boot camp class made me realize (for the 104th time) that I still have not done a boot camp class. I’m so used to doing the strength and cycling (and an occasional walk or run class, more for the playlist than anything), that when I’m cueing up classes, the boot camps are not on my radar.

    1. Yes, do the bootcamps! So fun. I definitely have to make sure that I add more of them in myself.

  3. Nice week of Peloton classes! Interesting that you do your glutes/legs strength before your run. Not sure I could do that! My legs are usually shot after a lower body class. After doing JJ’s split training for a few weeks, I am looking for motivation on some new strength classes

    1. I did the strength training before my run out of necessity LOL (it was still dark out and I don’t run when it still dark, so I knocked out something else first) ;)

  4. I love the tights you are wearing in your first photo! They are so cheery and pretty! I work out far less than you so I don’t have to do much planning in advance. I try to get 4 workouts in with 1 workout being strength training. I am only running 3-4 miles at a time, though, so am in a very different stage of exercise/training than you! I will sometimes write down what I plan to do, but have had to be flexible as things can happen to derail my plans, like a kid getting sick. And I HATE not doing what I wrote down in my planner! This week I did not get 4 workouts in as Phil was traveling and the boys had an early school closer on Friday and I could not wedge the workout in. Which is fine – life happens!

    1. Thank you – I am getting so many comments on these tights. I snagged them at Old Navy on sale and I am so glad I got them. I love them, too.
      I think it’s great that you have a general idea of what you want to get done in a week, but that you have to keep it more flexible. Totally makes sense!

  5. Nice week! I don’t usually track my warmups (just quick 5 min bits), but I see how yours add up over the week, so maybe I should also track those. Hm. My workout week was okay, but I did a Caroline Girvan leg workout yesterday that somehow tweaked my bad leg, so I might be taking it easy for the next day or two!

    1. The warmups and cooldowns add up! And they’re so important.
      How’s your leg doing?

  6. I love all of your Peloton workouts this week – so much variety!

    I have been slacking on my sleep meditations at night so I need to start doing those again – thanks for the reminder!

    1. I really love the sleep meditation. Sometimes I forget, but I never regret when I remember to do them!

  7. I also feel like it’s fitting together pieces of a puzzle, and I definitely plan out my week in advance. i’m not doing all these challenges you are, but figuring out when to go to the gym so I’m not sore for my long run, and when everything else fits in around the rest of life, is challenging sometimes. Seems like you did a good job of making it all work this week!

    1. I can definitely see how you have to plan around other things during the week, but I love that you always find time to fit your runs/gym workouts in! Go you!

  8. Great week, looks like some solid strength and cardio! You’re the Peloton queen!

    1. Haha, thank you. I really love the variety the platform offers.

  9. As you know I am not doing any regular exercise (as of now?!) but I did get 40,000+ steps in last week. I think that is decent.

    How did you do the exercises when you have been away? do you take all the equipment?

    1. 40k steps is awesome! Go you!

      I don’t take any equipment when I travel, but I try to use whatever the hotel has (treadmill, weights, exercise bike), but there’s also a lot of classes on the app that can be done without equipment.
