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.


2 mile walk to work

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


2 mile walk to work

Gym: 45 minute elliptical, 10 minutes rower


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


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

10 minute bike, 30 minute run, 25 minute swim


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!


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!)


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!
