The Week in Workouts, Vol. 5

I suspect I have reached the point in the semester where a combination of workshops, meetings, and errands is going to completely preclude my normal Monday and Wednesday workouts and I’m just going to have to deal with it. This week was much like last week, with me just getting the basics done and not much more than that. Here’s what went down:

Monday: Zip. I don’t even remember what I did this day, but exercise was not it.

Tuesday: Boot camp + three-mile run. Boot camp class was good — our old instructor was back and she had us working on the bosu ball a lot, and doing a lot of explosive movements. By the end of class, my legs were so tired that I thought another set of side burpees might literally kill me. Phew. I hit the treadmill afterward and slogged my way through a three-mile progressive run, finishing the last mile at a pretty zippy sub-9:00 pace. Good morning. I figure if I’m missing my Mondays and Wednesdays, I can at least get a good double workout done on Tuesdays, right?

Pretty day in Opelika.

Wednesday: CW and I headed down to the courthouse after work to pick up our marriage license — yet another Wednesday errand that precluded my usual kettlebells class, but I’m not exactly complaining. We treated ourselves to an afternoon cocktail after finishing the paperwork. Yay!

Thursday: Three-mile run. I got up and got going early this morning and would have gone on a longer run, but my hamstrings were still screaming from Tuesday’s boot camp (and I had a race coming up on Saturday), so I kept it short.

Friday: Rest.

Saturday: Ten-mile race! I will post a full report soon, once the official times and photos are available. It was a good one.

Sunday: Rest, beautiful slothlike rest.
