Staying Busy

I had a wonderful visit with my mom at the farm, but stayed incredibly busy while there helping her do things around the house and chauffeuring her to a couple of doctor’s appointments. Even though I took several rest days from my usual workouts, I truly didn’t rest…


Overview of the Week

Before discussing each day’s workouts, here’s an overview of my workouts from this past week. Scroll beyond the infographic for daily details…



Rest day



Strength training : 1 hour of total body

Running: 3.14 miles
• Average pace: 9:04
• Start time: 7:48 AM
• Location: neighborhood circle
• Weather: 27° and sunny
• What I wore: capris, l/s shirt, nylon shell, gloves, mittens, and ear warmer headband

Foam rolling: 10 minutes

Stretching: 10 minutes

I helped Kim celebrate her birthday from afar with a Pi Day run. We still had snow on the ground (the trails were clear, though) from Saturday’s bomb cyclone. By the end of the day, pretty much all of the snow had melted.



Cycling: 10 miles
• Average speed: 17.1 MPH
• Bike: Life Fitness Lifecycle Spin
• Surface: N/A
• Elevation gain: N/A
• Start time: 6:28 AM
• Location: basement
• Weather: 61°
• What I wore: bike shorts and jog bra

Cleaning: 4 hours

I multitasked by riding my spin bike (affiliate link) while training a virtual client.

Later in the afternoon/evening, I put the gym back together which involved scrubbing the rubber floor and cleaning all of the weights and equipment as I put everything back in place. My husband and I also gave the rest of the basement a rough cleaning with the shop vac and gym towels as we tried to get up the last of the drywall dust.

May I just say how handy it is having a stack of gym towels (affiliate link) for my clients?  I have been using the towels for cleaning up the kitchen and basement after the workers create their dust, and after washing them in bleach, they’re as good as new.



Travel day – drove to the farm



Running: 5K
• Average pace: 10:17
• Start time: 5:04 PM
• Location: country gravel roads
• Weather: 64° and cloudy
• What I wore: capris, s/s shirt, and visor

Foam rolling: 10 minutes

Stretching: 10 minutes



Rest day



Rest day – drove home from the farm

I awoke at 3:20 AM and never got back into a deep sleep so I got up at 4:30 and hit the road for home. I felt fine on the 6-hour drive (thanks to caffein), but treated myself to a much-needed long nap during the afternoon.  As a result, I ran out of time and didn’t go out for a walk as I’d hoped.


Last Week’s Blog Posts

In case you skipped checking in on my blog this past week, here’s what you missed…
