Fitness Friday - February 2016

Happy Friday! Here's a round-up of my workouts this month. Running has been going well. I'm gradually increasing my speed and distance. My plan is to do three runs per week - One tempo, one speed, and one long. None of them are especially fast or long YET, but I'm making progress! I struggled this month to figure out a yoga solution, and finally decided to go ahead and buy a 10-pack to the real yoga studio for a weekly 90-minute hot vinyasa class. It feels SO good.

Week 1:
Tempo - 1 mi warm-up then 2 mi at 9:40 = 3.1 mi total in 33:45
Speed - Alternate quarter miles at 12:00 and 9:15 = 3.1 mi total in 34:30
Long - 1 mi warm-up then 3 mi at 10:00 = 4 mi total in 43:00
Also, 1 60-min yoga class (at the gym)

Week 2:
Tempo - 1.5 mi warm-up then 2 mi at 9:40 = 3.5 mi total in 39:54
Speed - 1 mi warm-up then alternate quarter miles at 12:00 and 9:15 = 3.5 mi total in 39:57
Long - 1 mi warm-up then 4 mi at 10:00 = 5 mi total in 54:35

In other news:

Abel is three months old! He discovered his hands this month. He likes chewing on them and figured out how to bat and sometimes grab the "forest friends" on his activity mat. [We have this one.] He's been smiling more and more, but I have yet to capture one of his big grins on camera.


Happy Weekend!
