Hey friends! Did you have a good week? Mine was a good one, complete with a fun work conference at the Newseum (along with a post-conference happy hour on the roof overlooking the Capitol!) and a meeting with our HOA board that we took outside since it was such a nice evening. Sometimes little things like that can make a big difference in an otherwise boring week!

I also got in a bunch of good workouts this week, though I didn’t get many pictures (blogger fail). Here’s a look!

Saturday, May 13 & Sunday, May 14: These were both rest days! I thought about going for a run with Jack on Sunday morning since Fabio was out playing golf and I had some extra time to myself, but I decided to take him on an extra long walk through our local park instead. It was still nice to be out and about!

Monday, May 15: On Monday, I took Jack for a one-mile warm-up run and then headed to the track to complete a Kayla Itsines circuit workout. I have been loving these workouts lately since they’re quick and easy and I can do them outside without having to go too far from home.

Monday’s circuit included step-ups, step-up/lunges, walking lunges, jump rope, burpees, and more. It was a good one, and once again I was happy to just be outside in the sunshine. What a perfect way to start the day! 🙂

Tuesday, May 16: On Tuesday, Fabio joined me for a class at Bodymass Gym in Court House via ClassPass (<– affiliate link for $30 off). I’m so glad we discovered this fun bootcamp-style gym so close to home!

Our instructor Chaz took us through a bunch of circuits with exercises like goblet side lunges on sliders, push-ups, and more. Halfway through class Chaz challenged me to use a heavier weight, which is one thing I really like about these classes. The coaches definitely push you in the best possible way! I was pretty sore after this workout, especially my upper body. Ouch!

Wednesday, May 17 – Wednesday’s workout featured a class at Urban Athletic Club with my favorite workout buddies Anne and Kathleen. It was a good one, like usual, and I especially enjoyed the series of outside sprints since it was such a nice day out. Also, if any of you read Anne’s blog, you might have seen that she shared some exciting news this week!! 🙂 Congrats to Anne and Matt! <3

Thursday, May 18 – Thursday was a rest day since I had a work conference and had to be downtown by 8:30 a.m. I could have gotten up earlier for a class, but I decided to sleep in instead! It was a good decision.

Friday, May 19 – I have an early morning meeting tomorrow (it’s Thursday night as I write this) so I won’t be taking a class, but I do plan to get in a three-mile run with Jack. It’s been a while since I’ve run that route with him (a week? two weeks?) so I’m looking forward to it!

The end.

Question of the day: What was your favorite workout this week?

  1. Awesome workouts this week! It’s getting so hot in DC I’ve had to move my workouts indoors, but hopefully this weekend I’ll be able to squeeze in one more cooler run!
