I’mma be honest – this week was a wee bit slow. I only worked out 3 days this week! EEK can’t remember the last time I did that but this is NOW the most recent time. I remember in the beginning of my workout journey I was aiming to work out 5 days a week at least and NOW I can’t imagine working out less than 5 days a week. My how times have changed. Anywho below is my week in review. My trainer and I only worked out together once this week. She is headed out-of-town for 2 weeks so I won’t see her again until June 2013. Hopefully by that time I will know where I placed in the Brick Bodies contest and will get 3 free months of gym membership PLUS 10 free training session with Heather!

I did my favorite route with my running buddy on Tuesday. I ended my Monday on a sour note at work so this run felt really good! You know I had to get in my green smoothie and this was my first run in my new Asics Gel-Kanayo 18 running shoe. Felt like I was running on pillows! Yes lawd!
No workout today but the berry smoothie was delicious and nutritious. Remember, your diet is 80% of your results.
Again, another missed workout. But I didn’t miss my second berry smoothie heavy with blueberries which is good for the memory.
Yeah you know the story…I got up early, text my girl and told her I was going back to bed. I was dealing with killer cramps that morning and wasn’t in the mood. Plus it was misty/rainy outside and who wants to run in that? I know sorry excuse but I passed. Sometimes we have those days. Now while I passed on my workouts I did win and receive a free pair of Yurbuds earbuds! They are awesome!! I also updated my playlist so I was prepared during my next run.
I got up around 5:15 am, got dressed and met my girls outside at 6:00 am for our 5-mile run. It was great. Five of us from boot camp showed up and made it happen. There were hills, dogs, potty breaks and snotty noses but we got it done! I am so proud of my sisters for showing up and showing OUT!!!! I was steady bumping Miguel in my ears during this run. It felt good and we are doing it again on Monday morning too!! Wooo hoooo!
That is my week in review. Not as active as it should be but I did do something. Next week I am without my trainer but I have something planned for Monday – Wednesday and planning is 1/2 the battle. I am running Monday and Tuesday and going to the free boot camp session on Wednesday. Now I have to get my butt up and hit the weights in the gym on Thursday solo (but Heather gave me a workout) so I will do that!! Pray for me.
I was reading Runner’s Magazine and there was an article called Gender Split where it stated men and women approach exercise, running in this case differently with different mindsets.
This makes working out together very ummmm….maybe not the most pleasant thing in the world. What do you think? Do you prefer or defer working out with your mate regardless of what it is – running, lifting, etc. Leave a comment with your opinion.
