A Week of Workouts: 7/21-7/27

by agirlandhermutt on July 28, 2014

Good morning! This past week was my first week in what seems like forever without a specific training plan. I definitely like the idea of scheduled workouts though so I’m going to stick with that. In a world of chaos, I like a little routine.


Workouts for the Week 7/21-7/27

Scheduled: Off! I’m even skipping Glute Camp. Sorry Paige!
Actual: Totally off night! And I went out to dinner with friends. There was wine. There was dessert. It was lovely. Proof below!

Scheduled: Glute Camp (Elliptical HIIT)
Actual: Glute Camp Bike HIIT. It felt good to be back to working out after the triathlon. I kept my bag close by just in case I decided that I wanted to get the heck out of there quickly. Fortunately I made it through with no problem!

Scheduled: Glute Camp & Spinning
Actual: Glute Camp & Spinning. A new spinning studio, Turnstyle Cycle, opened in Kendall Square a few weeks ago. I bought a package to try out their spinning and TRX classes. Wednesday was my first class. I’ll be doing a full review for you locals soon! Oh, they have Real Ryder bikes. We all know how I feel about those bikes. Swooon!

Scheduled: Glute Camp
Actual: Glute Camp & Yoga. Ugh….it felt so good to stretch! I need to get back into this more often. I was so tight and it felt like I had never done yoga before.

Scheduled: Glute Camp & Zumba!
Actual: Glute Camp & Zumba. The instructor on Friday night at my gym is FANTASTIC. For some reason the class isn’t as crowded as other nights and I love it. I have plenty of space to bebop around and not have to worry about my ponytail becoming a weapon.

Scheduled: Free day! Maybe a class? Maybe a bike ride? Maybe a beach day?!
Actual: Total Body Shred. Ugh. Horrible, horrible, horrible idea. My knee just can’t take this class right now.

Our workout was:
50 weighted squats
50 walking lunges
50 push-ups
250 scissor crunches

100 air squats
100 walking lunches

25 weighted squat jump press
25 shoulder press with right leg up
25 weighted squat jump press
25 shoulder press with left leg up

100 crunches with knees into chest
100 reverse crunches with knees into chest

And a few other crappy things that I am trying to forget. I wanted to die. I almost did die! No more. No bueno. Uh uh. Nope.

After that I just collapsed near the pool in my neighborhood. Like seriously just sprawled out.

I followed the pool up with a trip to the brewery with the BF for a beer. Well, technically a beer for him. I’m on a no alcohol kick for a bit to get ready for the wedding. WAHHHHHH. We will see how long this lasts. 😉

Free day! Yoga? Bike? We will see!
Actual: Part of Zumba. I’m not sure what the hell was wrong with me, but I decided to get up and go to Zumba after the mess of Saturday’s workout. I made it through 40 minutes before I had to ring the bell and call it a day. I was so tired that I couldn’t jump around like I normally do and just needed to sit down. I spent the rest of the day “running errands”, which is just really code for shopping! YIPPPEEE! I’m never too tired to shop. Just in case you were wondering.

Weekly Total of “Miles” for the #175byLaborDay challenge: 19!
Total Miles: 100!


Workout Schedule for 7/28-8/3

This week I’m starting back to Pure Barre on a regular basis! I signed up for the Bridal Package that is unlimited for 3 months. EEK! It starts Monday and I couldn’t be more excited. It also happens to be the last week of Glute Camp with YourTrainerPaige. I’ve loved the series so far and I’m excited to see what we are up to this week. My wedding dress allows my glutes to shine so I’m trying to get them in tip top shape!

So basically the schedule looks like this…

Monday-Friday: Pure Barre & Glute Camp
Saturday: Swimming!
Sunday: Yoga

Easy peasy!


See ya on Wednesday with an update on my July goals and my new August goals. I guess I should figure those out soon, huh?!
