Weekly Wrap Up

By Sara Zwicker @SaraZwicker

Hello my friends, how are you today? I hope you all had a great weekend. It is officially Spring, but you would never know it based on the weather we are having here in MA, but I am going to choose to ignore it because I know it will get better…it HAS to, right??  So let’s take a look at last week in the Weekly Wrap Up!

Week: 3/16-3/22

Monday:  I tried running but something was on my work treadmill that was really slippery.  Everytime I took a step I felt like I was going to fall.  I let the fitness director know and they put an out of order sign on it.  I really wanted to run but all the other treadmills were taken so I did 10 mins on the stair climber then I lifted upper body and did abs. It wasn’t the workout I wanted but I got it done.

Tuesday: I was bound and determined to run since Monday was botched.  I did a 4 mile progression run that felt pretty great and then in the evening I did some abs. Yes, you read that right….I did abs!  I need to get better about doing this–we will see how it goes!

Wednesday: I did abs (AGAIN!!) before taking my usual spin class. I got in 17.1 miles in 40 minutes. This distance irritates me so much, I tried to get to 17.5 but I had a meeting so I had to cut class short. Anyone else hate ending on weird distances? I like to end on .0 or .50!

Thursday:  I did a quick 3 mile tempo run then finished off my workout by lifting shoulders and biceps. In the evening, we put together my new treadmill! 

Friday:  You know those runs that feel totally effortless?  Yeah, this was the complete opposite of that.  I ran 5 miles while watching Grey’s Anatomy and the entire run hurt like hell, I don’t know why but it felt impossible to hold a pace that is normally easy for me. Every step was a struggle. I wanted to stop but I kept telling myself I could stop after the next mile and then would say that again after the next mile.  It was a total struggle but I am really glad I fought through it to get the full 5 miles I had planned.

After work I took Ashton to the mall so he could ride the space ship ride they have there.  While we were there, I stopped in to get a boba tea and then this happened.

He is lucky he is so cute because I only got 2 sips of my drink before he started trying to drink it all up. He was drinking so fast I was worried he was going to choke!

After we picked up dinner, we headed home and I found these beauties waiting for me!

I’ve been wearing the Brooks Ghost model for a while now, but they discontinued the model I was wearing and I was still able to find them online but now they are completely gone and I was forced to upgrade to the newest model, I hope they feel the same!

Saturday: I finally took my new treadmill on it’s maiden voyage, I ran 3.5 miles in 30 minutes while watching Scandal.  The run felt effortless, the ride was so comfortable and it almost felt too easy. I don’t know if its because its a new treadmill so everything is very cushioned, or that I was just so excited to have my own treadmill, but it was amazing! I have a feeling we will be spending a lot of time on the weekends together and I can’t wait!

Sunday: I am glad I got my workout in yesterday because at around 9 pm on Saturday night I was struck with the worst stomach bug. I was up all night long and I will spare you the details, but it wasn’t pretty. I was really weak and had nothing in my system so I clearly made it a rest day. I took it really easy, did some work, caught up on House of Cards and didn’t move all that much.

Overall I was pretty happy with my workouts with the exception of the broken treadmill on Monday and the stomach virus on Saturday.  I am hoping that this week will be great and I am looking forward to logging some more miles on my new treadmill and maybe even getting outside if the weather cooperates for a run too!

Happy Monday, have a great start to your week!
