• Last Week’s Workouts {35 Weeks}

    May 3, 2014

    Things are definitely slowing down on the exercise front, but I’m still making my workouts happen! That said, here’s a recap of last week’s workouts!

    Sunday: First Basement Workout

    Ball Slams

    Monday: 60-minute pug+podcast walk

    Tuesday: Off

    Wednesday: CrossFit


    Thursday: Home gym workout (It’ll be on CNC early next week!)


    Friday: 60-minute spinning class

    Kerrie and I tried out a new spin studio in Quincy called Shred, which was great. (FYI: Your first class is free!) I definitely got a good workout (I was a sweaty mess by the end of class), and I really loved the instruction and music. Both were excellent!

    I just wrote about my workout recap today, actually. Six days on, one day off with a rest day tomorrow. I taught three one-hour BODYATTACK cardio classes, taught three one-hour BODYPUMP resistance classes, took a yoga class and did a core workout at home. Not too shabby! Wishing I had a nice home gym like you to do more stretching and rolling though. Have a great day! 🙂

    That sounds like a great week of workouts!!

    3 Days of lifting. 2 Run days. 1 Yoga Day. 1 Rock Climbing Day. Lots of sweat and definitely fun!

    Nice! Rock climbing is a fun workout! 😄


    Stephanie @ Whole Health Dork May 3, 2014 at 12:50 pm

    So impressed with how strong you’re still going. It will definitely help in the delivery room and you won’t have to come back from post-natally from as big of a difference.
    I got in 2 runs, 1 HIIT, 1 strength, 1 yoga. I usually aim for a mix like this 5-6 days during most weeks.


    Sara @ LovingOnTheRun May 3, 2014 at 1:49 pm

    You are so awesome! Another great week of workouts! You are my idol for when I get pregnant one day! Keep it up! 🙂


    Julie @ Coastal Runner Girl May 3, 2014 at 2:42 pm

    Great workouts! I went to Shred in Quincy a few weeks ago. 🙂 Are you going to check out their ‘Surfset’ class after the baby?

    I’m 27 weeks pregnant so my workouts are slowing down. I did 5 days of power-walk/jogging and a bunch of squats and push-ups thrown in the mix.

    Still recovering from the Boston Marathon so just 3 days of very slow running!


    Suzanne @ Mix it mom May 3, 2014 at 4:10 pm

    I’m impressed with your exercise this week! I still think you are doing more than many non pregnant women! For myself, I had 3 days of cardio(incline walking at 15) plus two days of full body weight training.

    Great workouts! I’m excited to see your basement workout next week.

    HEATHER May 3, 2014 at 7:40 pm

    one hour zumba and one crossfit class >:(


    Luv What You Do May 3, 2014 at 8:49 pm

    I wish we had cool spin studios here. I would love to try a soul cycle class.
    This morning’s workout was a 90+ minute hot yoga class. BRUTAL!

    Nice work!! 💪

    No major race in sight except a 10k coming up on 18 May. Doing some leisure runs with a couple of tempos in a week. Core work and upper body exercises every alternate day. Bought a new geared hybrid cycle so doing some sight seeing around the city.
    By the way, you are awesome, love your blog and that’s a pretty cool home gym you made there. When’s your due date? All the best.

    m: upper body weights
    tu: lower body weights
    w: rest
    th: run, walk, core
    f: walks with my dog and husband
    sa: run, walk


    Laura @ Mommy Run Fast May 4, 2014 at 12:58 pm

    You’re doing awesome!! The end is sooo close now. I just posted my workouts today (now at 27 weeks)- still getting in some running, and a mix of spin, circuit strength training, and walks. I keep meaning to add in swimming but have a hard time motivating myself to get to the pool!


    Tina May 4, 2014 at 9:21 pm

    Nice job with your workouts!! 💪


    Phoebe May 5, 2014 at 4:27 pm

    You are inspiring! Although I do notice how empty your basement walls look in your basement. I’m now imagining your new home gym with those cheesy motivational posters on the walls… with a pug theme, obviously. Wouldn’t that be hilarious? That would definitely get me through a tough workout! Or make it harder…due to laughter…

    It is incredibly inspiring to hear you working out at this stage, I have no doubt that it will pay off in the future, so stay strong and healthy!
