It’s been a few months since I last presented Week in Workouts. I originally posted them here because it annoyed me that a lot of fitness folks I follow tell you they exercised but not how; I wanted to break down my routine into warm up, reps, etc. to share with eager readers who want to emulate it. But after a while, those posts began to feel a lot like junk miles.
Of course, I’m still running and back to logging 20+ miles a week. Now to find out the details of my workouts, you’ll have to follow @NitathebRUNcher on Instagram, where I’m sharing scenic photos of my view with descriptions of each workout.
In case you’re wondering what my weekly routine looks like, here’s an outline:
Monday: strength training arms, chest & back
Tuesday: maintenance run (whatever distance I get through in an hour)
Wednesday: barre class or rest day
Thursday: hill repeats, intervals or tempo run (roughly an hour)
Friday: yoga and strength training arms, chest & back
Saturday: long run (at least eight miles and sometimes at goal pace)
Sunday: recovery run (no more than three miles) or rest day
Of course, the weather sometimes pushes me off track, like when thunderstorms and tornado warnings kept me away from my new favorite long hill, I opted for Thursday night yoga instead. Whatever the case, you’ll find it all over on Instagram.
Question of the Day: How do you plan out your weekly workouts and where do you log them?
