Week of Workouts: 9/9 – 9/15

Ya’ll.  I did it.  I completed the elusive 3 workouts in one week phenomenon.  And that’s not using mowing the lawn or unpacking 20 cases of wine at work as a workout.  Not that I mowed the lawn this week… and I only unpacked like 12 cases of wine.  Anywho, here’s the actual workouts that I completed:


Tuesday – Pilates

Wednesday – Running

3.12 miles in 27:28 for a pace of 8:48.  Ran with Hubby.  Also, ran before dinner.  I didn’t want to puke at the end.  Yay!

Friday – Running/Gym

I ran to the gym, which is less than a mile away, worked out and then ran home.  Here’s the breakdown:

Run to the gym = .67 miles in 5:24 for a pace of 8:03


  • Chest press – 25 lbs – 3 sets of 12 reps
  • Overhead press – 25 lbs – 3 sets of 12 reps
  • Seated Leg Curl – 50 lbs – 3 sets of 12 reps
  • Lat pulldown – 37.5 lbs – 3 sets of 12 reps
  • Leg extension – 50 lbs – 1 set of 12; 37.5 lbs – 2 sets of 12
  • Row – 37.5 lbs – 3 sets of 12
  • Seated leg press – 100 lbs – 3 sets of 12
  • Hanging tuck ups – 3 sets of 12
  • Calf Raises using the leg press machine – 100 lbs – 3 sets of 15 feet parallel; 3 sets of 15 feet in first position (heels together and toes facing out)

Run home = .9 miles in 7:14 for a pace of 8:02

A couple of things about this workout.  First, I don’t love the gym, but it is nice to get in there and do something different every now and again.  I don’t love using machines, but again with the whole doing something different thing.  Plus, I was having a hard time motivating myself at home this particular day and I knew that if I was in the gym, I would actually work out.  Second, the run home was tough because my legs felt like lead and jelly all at once.  And the fact that it was at like 1:00 in the afternoon and 93 degrees outside.  I surprised myself by how quickly I was actually running.  That’s always a fantastic feeling.
So, there you have it.  3 workouts.  1 week.  Done.  Let’s do it again next week, shell we?
