October’s Over and Workout Recap

I feel like this year is just going way to fast. October is now behind us and I vaguely remember my half marathon because Halloween and day light’s saving time have messed with us. “One extra hour of sleep” – ha ha, yeah right! I’m also ready to throw out all the candy/chips because I keep sneaking some for myself when the girls aren’t looking.

October brought me 101 kilometres of running!!!!!!

Last weeks workouts were a killer……

Since I’m not following a training plan anymore, I feel free to run/workout when ever and that’s kinda nice. Honestly, I can’t remember what I did when so I have to rely on my handy-dandy (oh yes) running log book. It’s not fancy, far from that. It’s a simple book that I write the month in and then list the date/distance/time/total km or workouts and then any other comments. I’ve thought about getting a fancy book but I’m almost 2 years into filling this one up so I’m sticking with it.

  • Sunday – A quick 5k on the trail, stop at the store for an onion and then ran the last km home!
  • Monday – 5k treadmill run.
  • Tuesday – Vinyasa Yoga – felt so good!
  • Wednesday – Rest Day
  • Thursday – 5k treadmill run
  • Friday – 21 Day Fix – Total Cardio Fix (good lord this killed me)
  • Saturday – Nothing as I couldn’t handle the massive amounts of pain I was suffering from the Total Cardio Fix
  • Sunday – 6 trail run in the rain – a little rough shaking out some pain from Friday’s workout.

Halloween Fun

November Adventures:

I’m doing the 30 Day Plank Challenge, it’s one of my favourites and to be honest…THE only 30 day challenge I’ve completed to date!

I’ve signed up for the #HolidaySweat Challenge {Nov 8th – Jan 2nd}. You can check it out here. 

I’m attempting to remember to add #chasethebird from Nov 1st – 26th to photos on IG/Twitter and FB. It’s about getting people to do at least 15 minutes of activity EVERY – DAY! You can check it out here.

We’re full swing into swimming lessons for Lilly and indoor soccer for both girls. Sadly, I’m not playing indoor soccer – that’s a tough one to swallow BUT I have to be realistic about my hamstring and sprinting/speed work is out of the question.

I’m actually {I can’t believe I’m going to write this down}… I’m actually looking forward to *some* snow falling later this month!!!! I can’t believe I just said that…shit’s going to hit the fan this winter now! Oh now wait, that hit us Maritimers last winter…we should be getting it easy this year. Yeah, right!

Welcome November!!!!!!!!

How was your October / weekend?

Have you tried any of the 21 day fix workouts? 

Any plans this November?

  1. I’m also excited for some unstructured workout time. Your kiddos look adorable!! I’ve never tried any of the 21 day fix workouts. As for November, bring on the recovery (after this weekend)!

  2. I have the 21 Day Fix and like the Dirty 30 and Upper Body workouts… the others, not so much. And I am glad you have joined in the Holiday Challenge too. I hope it is more fun this year than in the past when it was so competitive!

    • I’ve yet to do the upper body but that’s coming soon. We are juggling all our work schedules, yoga on Tuesdays and some running for me. This week is our semi-slack week only because we are so busy.
      Was the holiday sweat challenge not good last year?

  3. Cute pictures! It was my first Halloween without my kids – so strange. I’m doing the #Planksgiving challenge too! I felt clueless with the #HolidaySweat so can’t wait to see what others are up to.

  4. Sounds like you’ve got some great motivation to help you stay focused this month. I’m doing the Sweatpink Holiday Sweat Challenge. I loved it last year, and even though I’m pregnant now I want to use it to help keep me going as I near closer to the end of my pregnancy.
