12 Week Challenge Workouts~ Week 2

Sunday, January 12, 2014

Two weeks in to my 12 week challenge now! I've mostly been doing my weight workouts at night after I put Caroline to bed and my runs in the late afternoons when my parents or sister can keep Caroline for a little bit. I'm adding in yoga this week as well! Here's my workouts from this past week. As always, feel free to e-mail me if you have any questions and want to follow along. I'll be checking my stats at the end of this week to see if I've progressed and if so, how much.

I also ran three days, approximately 1.5 miles each time. I'm hoping to start upping my mileage in the coming weeks considerable until I'm getting in 10-15 miles a week running at least 3 miles each day I can, usually 3-4 days a week. I'm also teaching a Strength and Stretch class one day a week and hoping to add some rowing workouts in starting this week as well! Rowing is my all time favorite cardio workout. Now it's time to plan my workouts for this week!
