Day 180 & Day 181: cross training and Glenmore Reservoir

Felix and Kat after a runLast night I completed a 7 mile bike ride (30 mins) and I completed 3 rounds/3 cycles of Tabatas. I am a little bit sore today, but it didn’t stop me from getting out with my son for our first Spring run together at Glenmore Reservoir!

Today was a beautiful, sunny day. It wasn’t too hot, but I didn’t want to leave my run to late in the day or evening (I really just wanted to get it over with!) We hit the reservoir late morning, after an insane morning of errands etc. The trail wasn’t too busy, but there was another mom out pushing her kid in a stroller as well (we crossed paths twice and gave one-another an empathetic smile.) We did a few hills, which were a bit tough given the fact that my son is nearing 30 lbs! But we finished strong and were happy to finish.

Here are our stats:

Hope everyone is happy and healthy out there!

 

Day 157 & Day 158: Cross training and a wicked fast 5km run!

photo 2So yesterday was such a busy day that I completely forgot about blogging- whoops! But I didn’t forget to work out. I did almost 50 minutes of cardio between the AMT and the bike. Both were great, well, the bike was boring as usual but I felt the burn. Then I did about 25 minutes of weights using my tabata timer. It’s loud and obnoxious but it does the trick! There’s really nothing spectacular to report from yesterday’s workout – felt great to sweat through this cold.

And then there was todays run, which was frickin’ amazing! I had only about 4.5-5 hours sleep last night and an incredibly busy day with work stuff, so by 6:30 this evening going for a run was the last thing I wanted to do. However, both Wedgie and I weren’t feeling it so we set up a run together and I’m glad we did. We had a super, super fast run. Wait for it… wait for it…. we did 5km in 25:39!! Fastest run in a long time!! Way to go Sue!!!!! We can get it under 5:00 min/km for sure 🙂
