Week 6 of my Run Disney Wine & Dine Half Marathon Training is complete! Check out the lessons I learned this week and how I’m moving forward.
This week marked week 6 of the Run Disney Wine & Dine Half Marathon training, as well as my first week back at school for the 2017-2018 school year! While it was definitely the lightest inservice week I’ve ever experienced, it more than exhausted me. This week is going to be another busy and exhausting one, but let’s look back on the week that’s just passed.
Recently, I’ve found myself missing the Tone It Up workouts! It’s easy to get “trainer burnout” no matter what program you follow. I did, so I took a TIU break after the end of the 2017 Bikini Series. But Karena and Katrina are always so upbeat and positive that I soon get TIU FOMO, haha. All that to say, I kicked it old school on Sunday with a total body workout featuring Karena, Katrina, and Jillian Michaels! It was very similar to the total body workouts I’ve been doing recently, but still a nice change-up.
To begin my first week back at work, I started the day with a treadmill run and about 10 minutes of upper body. It was a good workout, even though my Fitbit died and I couldn’t track it. That always gives me anxiety and I ask myself if my effort even counts. (Just kidding, I know it does.)
Total Body Tuesday/Tone It Up Tuesday/Whatever. Like I mentioned, I was getting TIU FOMO, so I did two total body videos and a quick core workout from YouTube with Karena and Katrina. It was so hard to get up. I’m already tired of my super early alarm.
Wednesday morning I got in a 5 a.m. run because it was going to be 92 degrees at 5 p.m. That didn’t sound ideal, so I got the run out the way in the morning and saved my strength for the afternoon.
After getting home from work, I did the TIU daily toning moves and a quick ab circuit while I got caught up on Real Housewives of Orange County. (Don’t judge!)
Already tired of my alarm, I greatly considered sleeping in, but I didn’t since I was planning on having dinner with my coworkers that night! I got in some leg and booty work with mini resistance bands. I’m always shocked at the great workout I can get from them and it’s nice break from dumbbells. The workout I did was called “Booty Burn” and it definitely lived up to its name.
The first week back at work left me exhausted, so I didn’t feel guilty about going to sleep at 8:30 Friday night and sleeping until 7 Saturday morning! I relaxed on the couch with my hubby and then hopped on the treadmill for speed work. I felt great the whole time, so I’m thinking I need to push myself harder for my next speed workout (in two weeks). I was running an average of about 23 seconds faster than goal pace, so I’m hoping that translates the way it should and I get faster after all of this!
Week 6 Miles: 12.25 Miles
Total Miles: 72.6 Miles
