this week: double digits {5/23-28}

Life after Ripped in 30...

Truthfully, if I could still do Ripped in 30 almost every day and run too--I'd be a happy camper.

I am super interested in the Insanity program.  Because I'm insane.  But I'd have to find a super cheap copy!

This week's workouts.

Monday: I don't remember why exactly, but I didn't get to exercise.

Tuesday: 3.5ish mile run, average pace 10:16.  I can tell that I haven't been running, mostly in my cardiovascular strength.  And my feet.  I keep getting a blister on the inside of one of my feet, even though I've had my shoes for over a few months.

Wednesday: Biggest Loser Weightloss Yoga, Level 1.  I wanted to stay active, yet I knew I shouldn't push myself too much since it's my first week back to running.

Thursday: 4.2 miles on the treadmill.  It was a gorgeous day--but my schedule dictated running during naptime.  So I enjoyed the view of the gorgeous day from the treadmill in my garage.  This run was warm--1 mile in 9:05--jog-1 mile in 9:05--jog-cool.  It was TOUGH, especially that last timed mile.  My cardio suffered without running.  This is one of the reasons I like the treadmill though--I was able to finish it.  Had I been on the street, I don't think I could have pushed myself.

Friday: Rest

Saturday: 5.5 miles.  It was supposed to be a 5 mile run, but the apps I tried to use on my iPhone failed me and my math wasn't so good, even though I was running on a marked path.  This run was with my sister and we took walk breaks throughout.  The goal pace was supposed to be around 11:00 minutes, which overall we probably hit with the breaks.  I didn't really time it though.  This run felt good!  My cardiovascular strength seems to be increasing again.

Yay for a double digit week in miles run!

Next week, I need to get a few sessions in with Jillian as well.  I want to keep the strength I've worked for.


  1. I LOVED Insanity! It is hardcore (but not crazy) and you will feel great when doing it! I felt so strong when I was doing the program! I highly recommend it! My sisters and I found a cheap copy online (total new system for $75) but we figured out a way for us to swap dvd's and still stay on schedule, so it only cost each of us $25...maybe you could find an insane workout "partner" to cut the cost?

  2. Nice job fitting the workouts in. I have no experience with Jillian's stuff but I see great reviews everywhere.

  3. Heather-I'm definitely going to try to find a copy. I saw a few on craigslist for $30-40. I keep trying to find an insane workout or running partner, but nothing so far! No one is quite as driven as me.
