Weekly Workout Wrap Up

It's been a while since I have put it all together for you guys, but here it is a week in workouts.

Monday:

2 mile walk to work

Gym: 30 minutes elliptical, 15 minutes abs, 5 minute run

Tuesday:

2 mile walk to work

Gym: 45 minute elliptical, 10 minutes rower

Wednesday:

30 minute run, 15 minute elliptical

Leg series:

3 sets total.
I use 5 lbs weights
-12 forward lunges with overhead press (reps are total not each leg)
-12 hammer curls palms facing toward each other with shoulder raises
-12 plie squats while raising arms together toward chin--like a bowtie
-12 squats with bicep curls
-12 stationary lunges on right with over head presses
-12 stationary lunges on left with tricep kickbacks
-12 calf raises with overhead tricep extensions

Thursday:

1 mile walk to work, then hopped on subway because I was running late...ooops!

10 minute bike, 30 minute run, 25 minute swim

Friday:

30 minute elliptical
24 reps on each of 6 leg machines at the gym
Yoga for Weightloss video from Fitness Magazine website. Went through routine, twice not four times.
Try it, it's fun!

Saturday:

7.5 mile run outside. For part of this I listened to Kara Goucher's Endurance Boost Itunes workout.

Felt really good, moments of invincibility haha! Although, I felt really tired after my workout; it's been a long time since I ran long(ish) and hard. But I am going for 9-10 miles next week!

I then watched about 2/3 of the women's Olympic marathon on TV. Inspiring, even though I can't believe I could watch people run for almost 2 hours! ( I did keep switching back and forth from the hills marathon!)

Sunday:

10 minute treadmill run
30 minutes on the elliptical with glute kicker mode on
ran up the stairs from 6th floor to 29th, I walked a few.

I am now back from a day at Coney Island, and I think I will finish off my week with some strength and thigh dancing. Maybe a quick 25 minutes at the gym adapting the moves from the Fitness magazine 20 minute workout video.

Looking forward to next week, I am probably going to have to do a lot of morning workouts because I have have a pretty social week lined up--can't complain about that! I have dinner plans two nights (the little owl and Pure Food and Wine), a movie date (Vicky Cristina Barcelona!) and a raw italian cooking class one night, so hopefully I will wake up high energy!

Oh, if you are a Woody Allen fan, this article/video montage from NYmag is kind of great. I loved Match Point and I LOVE Barcelona, so I hope I am not disappointed!
