Last week was a tough week to get through because all three of us came down with some sort of sickness at different points throughout the week. But despite that, I still managed to complete all of my scheduled workouts! Phew!
Fitting in my workouts takes a little bit of creativity. I often take a bag of workout stuff with me to work so I can exercise after work and before picking Brennen up from daycare. I also squeeze in a short run when I drop Brennen off for his speech therapy appointment. Since most of my workouts begin away from my house, it is imperative that I remember to bring everything I need with me. Unfortunately, I have been forgetting some important workout items lately. Like my inhaler and my lock for the gym locker. To eliminate that from happening anymore, I created a ‘fitness basket’ to keep all my exercise necessities in one place.
In it I have my inhaler, Ipod & charger, ear buds, Ipod arm band, Garmin watch & charger, Road ID, active band headband, sunglasses, sunscreen and lock for the gym locker. Now I just put the basket in my bag with my shoes and workout clothes and I am good to go!
Speaking of shoes, on Saturday I stopped at my local Hansons Running store and picked up these beauties.
They are from the Brooks Pure Project Collection. I tried on 3 of the 4 pairs of shoes in the collection and decided on the Pure Cadence because of the extra cushioning they provided. So far I am very happy with them!
Here is what I have scheduled for week 4!
Sunday: 3.5 Mile Run
Monday: Insanity DVD
Tuesday: 3.5 Mile Run & Strength Training
Wednesday: 2 Mile Run
Thursday: 5 Mile Run
Friday: Stretch & Strengthen
Saturday: Rest Day
