Sunday sweats ~ Vol. 1

I probably chose a bad week to start logging my 'sweats' because this week have been all over the place. Last Monday was a non-Easter related public holiday here and then this current Easter long weekend finds me at my parents house. Since I tracked my sweats daily though, I figure why not post what I actually did anyway.
Monday: Rest ~ This was a holiday here and I just had no zeal to do anything but relax. Well relax and work on my thesis. No sweats of any kind happened. 

Tuesday: 45 minute run on the treadmill at the gym. 30 minute abs/thighs ~ Because I run just because I enjoy it and I'm not training for a race per se, I actually don't generally measure distance, but rather time. I plan to change that though so maybe from next weeks' post.

Wednesday: 30 minute run on treadmill. 30 minute legs and back. 20 minute yoga ~ Today I was beat. Just was not into it. I know this isn't even a tough workout day or week but I was exhausted after the gym for some reason. And it really was just over an hour according to my polar. 
PS. After heading home and yoga-ing for 20 minutes I was fine though.

Thursday: yoga ~ this 7 minute video. It really was just a stretch and I'm not even sure I should count it!  

Friday: rest ~ Good Friday saw me driving to the parents house and relaxing all day. I have to say it was a relaxing week.

Saturday: 20 minute yoga ~ Last night, at 1 am at my parents home with no yoga mat, I decided to practice. And that my friends is one of the reasons I like yoga so much. No fuss. I'm all about no fuss.


I look forward to next week when I have some sort of structure.



Happy Easter!!

  1. Love it! Um I did yoga in my bed last night and still counted it so I think your 7-minute video DEFINITELY counts ;) I know you said it was all over the place, but it looks like you got in some serious sweats to me. I'm so glad you started doing this!

  2. You go girlie! I really need to get back into Yoga. It's definitely one of my favorite workouts and how it makes you more flexible.

  3. um yes that 7 minute video counts! i am totally gonna try that video one day this week. why not. i'm so glad you're loving yoga and running. when i first started running, i would aim for certain kms and i found that i was pushing myself too hard and then almost giving up because it was unrealistic to run a 7 minute mile for more than 30 seconds.. so i started telling myself i just needed to run for x amount of time, regardless of how fast or anything. it really helped, and i was thinking about doing it again!

  4. You did more sweating than I did this week, that's for sure. I'm glad you're doing this now! And don't feel the need to stop measuring your runs my time and switch to distance. Work within whatever serves your needs and goals! Glad you got some good workouts in this week. Keep up the awesome!

  7. I really need to do yoga more often. I typically am a big group fitness junkie but it gets hard to go to a class every day!

  8. The absolute best thing about yoga is you can fit it in any time, any place with nothing needed. Don't have your tennis shoes or gym clothes? You can still work out! No real planning needed - just my style! Way to go on all your workouts this week!!
