Happy Easter everyone! Is this week 3 of “shelter in place”? I have lost track already. I enjoyed a mini “Spring Break” week while the kids are off school this week. I picked the right three days to be home because the weather was perfect!! 70 degrees in April? Yes please!! btw, this picture made me think I should wear a lot more makeup, especially when running. Hooray for filters!! LOL
- Miles run = 29
- Miles biked = 25
- Miles on elliptical = 4
Monday – 30 mins elliptical! I did my first workout on this beauty. I was pleasantly surprised how sweaty I got, and what a good workout it was. I’m happy with my purchase! This will give me a good reason to not run every day to get my cardio fix.
Talked my kids into going on a bike ride. Ended up going 14 miles, which was a lot for them. It helped that we picked up a friend along the way so everyone was happy to see each other.
Tuesday – double day! 3 miles + 4 miles. The day started out rainy, so I hit the treadmill for 3 miles. We picked up some donuts and enjoyed them before a family walk in the park.
In the afternoon, the temps were in the upper 60’s so I just had to get out there and enjoy them! I decided it was high time to bust out a skirt 🙂 Why wait for a race?
This was super weird – they closed the road where the walleye fishermen park, so the street was empty! Apparently the people were fishing too close together.
When I got home my husband proclaimed that I looked “really sweaty!”. I think he meant “really hot”. Thanks honey! 😉
Wednesday – Running! Weights! Biking! Eating ice cream! Perfect day 🙂 The weather was amazing today so I started my day with a very consistent heart rate run down every street in my neighborhood. 5.15 miles. Look at this consistent zone!! Wow, that never happens!
Mid morning I did a Centr upper body/core workout with my son. We relocated to the sunroom because it was so beautiful outside! Still, no sighting of Chris Hemsworth in the app 😉 Such false advertising!
After lunch I went on a bike ride with my husband. I had visions of going for hours and hours, but my rear was not in the mood (ouchy sit bone pain area… you know those stupid hammies). We did bike for 11 miles and it was wonderful!
To celebrate the last day of my “spring break”, we got ice cream. The ice cream parlor has switched over to “take out” versions of sundaes instead of mixing them up. I’m good with it, and I appreciate this change to be able to still stay in business. Side note, this was actually a TON of ice cream for 4 people. Will have to order less next time!
Thursday – 30 mins elliptical, Peloton core class. Back to work for me, less and less people are in my office and I’m “sheltering in cube” with only an occasional trip to the bathroom. In the evening I moved a few things around in our workout room. I’m very happy to have open space in here. It’s very calming!
Friday – 3.5 miles easy, treadmill. I decided to run a little on my treadmill. Also did my Peloton core workout. I’ve been pretty consistent on getting the workouts done on this “core challenge”.
Friday after work, 5K virtual race! I really wasn’t in the mood to run again, nor were my hammies, but once we got moving it went well. We did this on the trails at the park, which really slows down our time, but it was really pretty out there.
Saturday – Power walk! I tried the outdoor “power walk” Peloton class. I did feel a little odd power walking, but it was a nice “rest day” activity. The mileage was really off on the app though – my Garmin 2 miles was 2.37 miles in Peloton. Made me look like a super fast power walker!
Did another Centr strength training class with my son. We will be super swole by the time stay-at-home ends! I do feel stronger for doing these. I’m no longer sore for days after the class!
Sunday – 10.5 miles, long run. Overall this was a pretty good run. Didn’t feel a whole lot of pain during the run, got to speed up a tiny bit for the last 1.5 miles. Still, feeling somewhat painful afterwards. Boo. Oh well, that means rest day tomorrow! I found a couple of “eggs” which were part of an egg hunt this week from our running group.
I got onboard with wearing masks this week. I made 3 of them. I even delivered a couple of them to my parents. I did not feel odd wearing on while grocery shopping. Most people were wearing them.
Pat yourself on the back if you’ve made it this far. I’ve really been busy this week! 🙂 Hope you are making the most of your Easter (if you celebrate!) and have a great week. As always, thanks for stopping by!
Q: Did you make an Easter dinner this year?
Q: Favorite candy? Chocolate or something else?
Dark chocolate, and chocolate & peanut butter for me!!
