Andddd I’m Back!

Holy moly was last week incredibly stressful!  

As some of you may already be aware of, I am currently working towards a degree in politics.  During the summer I am taking some final year courses to jump ahead and lighten my work load for next year.  So this past week I have been busy reading and preparing for my presentation I had to make to my prof.  This included hundreds of pages of reading and an intense meeting with my prof.  It was my first upperclassman presentation so I was nervous going in but I absolutely killed it and walked away with an 85%.

Unfortunately, the time I spent on my school this past week meant that I had little free time to blog.  But, I do want to let you now that I still continued fitting in workouts.

  • Tuesday: Ran 6km, hill repeats
  • Wednesday: Gym workout focussing on arms and shoulders
  • Thursday: Gym workout focussing on abs and back
  • Friday: Gym workout focussing on legs
  • Sunday: Half marathon Race (will post a recap)

I am back now and my school load is pretty light now until July when my term papers come due.  Today I hope to post the details of my gym workouts and lifting schedules, as well as post a race recap from my half marathon race this past sunday.  

I hope Y’all have stuck with me and forgive me for my long absence.

Live fit and free!

Pure Cardio

As some of you may know, my passion remains with running.  Coming up, I have a 5k race at the end of this week and a half marathon the last weekend in May.  

Alongside INSANITY I am trying to keep up with my running schedule.  If you are a runner you’re probably familiar with weekly long slow distances that accompany the majority of running plans.  Today I went out and did my long run, around two hours, and by the time I got home my knee was ready for some ice and rest.  Because of this, I did not do my INSANITY workout today.  I do not feel all too guilty as I still went out and ran for quite some time; even though it wasn’t a HIIT workout, I feel as if it could be classified as “pure cardio.”

I will get back into the INSANITY grind tomorrow and continue it this week.  However, I will be taking a rest day on Friday, the day before my race, to let my muscles recover and prepare for Saturday morning’s event.  As of right now, I am still planning on doing the INSANITY workout on Saturday after my race, as it’s only a 5k.
