Weekly stats

  • Running – 10.5  miles
  • Bike/spinning – 23.5  miles
  • Swimming 0 yards
  • P90x – Week 7 workouts – all workouts w/ some portion of Yoga X missed and back only on legs back.

Highlight for me this week was somehow moving through a good old Nebraska blizzard, three no school days and all sorts of schedule adjustments.   You can still run, mountain bike and workout in the winter weather.  Here’s a great article from Runner’s World on preparing for it.

Sunday, Day 43 – Chest, Shoulder’s and Triceps – No run in the morning (long run on Saturday) – wasn’t feeling the most motivated but did the workout with my oldest daughter Rachael, which brought the motivation and then some!  Weight in the 14 to 25 range and much stronger on push ups (w/ bars).  Great wrap with Ab Riper X!

Monday, Day 44 – Plyometrics.  Another good plyo workout – hint of winter weather so got 3 miles running in before the start of it.

Tuesday, Day 45 – Back and Legs.  3 miles running during the heavy snow with my dog friends.  Back and Biceps were done @ the Y on Thursday…. Improvised my own back workout – 70 minutes of shoveling with good back rotation.  Incorporated some good stances, leap frog squats and full body movement.  Kept a heart rate of 125-140 during the shoveling – so think I accomplished about as much.  No School today.

Wednesday and Day 46, Yoga. Got all the moving postures and some balanced postures.  Good way to recover from Day 2 of Shoveling.   A nice 3 mile run in 10 inches of snow to begin.  Day 2 of No School!

Thursday, Day 47, Back and Biceps –25 minutes of precor bike and then back and biceps at the Y.  Oh, Day 3 of No School – ARGGGGGH 😉

Friday, Day 48, A light run with my dog friends, Spinning Class (13 miles on bike) and  KenpoX / Ab Riper X.  Kenpo and Ab Riper were done at night.  Amazing how despite fatigue, my energy picks up once I’m into it!

Saturday, Day 49. Rest Day.  5 miles on recumbent bike at the Blair Y during swim meet.  Joshua and Annaliese hit PR’s or right at PR’s.  Very close to regional qualifying times  – really hope and pray they’re able to nail those this year!

Back at the end of Week 8!
