I honestly have been dreading writing this post because it was an off week for me. Since I last posted this is what my “workouts” looked like:
So here is the break down of April 8-14:
– Friday C25K & Walk 2.8 miles in 35 minutes
– Saturday Walk downtown 1.2 miles in 20 minutes
-Sunday Walk on bike path 1.7 miles in 35 minutes
– Monday OFF
– Tuesday walk with hubz 2.2 miles 45 minutes
-Thursday- pilates 30 minutes
Totals: 11/24 days and 6hrs 55minutes/15hours
Honestly this week was horrible for me; I feel like I didn’t do any intense workouts which has made me feel a little sluggish and tired today. I have decided with some encouragement from Twitter that starting tomorrow I am going to be working out in the mornings because it’s too easy to have “something come up” in the evenings.
This evening the plan is to do my Rodney Yee Yoga for Abs because my abs need a good workout and then C25K & a walk with the Hubz. I also am going to try out my new Nathan Sports Speed 2 Hydration system (p.s. giveaway to come for this!)
Do you like working out in the a.m. or p.m.? What are you doing for a workout this week?
We are a week into April and things have been going great, both the Hubz and I are keeping on top of working out and we even started Couch to 5k again! I have also been using Daily Mile to keep track of my activities and it is really great to connect with other people and find support, motivation and inspiration. So here is the break down of April 1-7:
– Friday Community Class at Evolution Yoga 1 hr 15 min
– Saturday 30 minute walk around Middlebury
-Sunday C25K Day 1 Week 1 plus walking – total 3 miles in 40 minutes
– Monday Rodney Yee AM Yoga and Yoga for Abs 40 minutes
– Tuesday walked on the bike path with the Hubz 1.5 miles 30 minutes
-Wednesday C25K Day 2 Week 1 plus walking- total 2.9 miles in 35 minutes
Totals: 6/24 days and 4hrs 10minutes/15hours
OISELLE REVIEW AND GIVEAWAY
Now that we have discussed the updates lets get down to the good stuff- the giveaway. I think that this giveaway is perfect for this post, my new love like of running and because I know that many of you are runners or are active in other ways. Oiselle just sent me one of their Recycled Poly Tech Tops to try. The Recycled Poly Tech Top was designed to be so light, “you might forget you have it on. The wing motion graphic across the chest mimics the lightness of your feet’s flight. And because it’s made of 50% recycled polyester it’s light impact on the planet too. A running top so light it’s practically gravity defying.”
I have been wearing it for running and other activities. I honestly thought the shirt wasn’t too cute in the photo and was like oh well I don’t need to look cute to run I just need to have something that is light and is great for running. To my surprise (and delight) the shirt came and it was actually super cute on and it fit perfectly. I immediately put it on and went for a run and fell in love. The shirt is really great because not only is the fabric light on your skin it breathes really well and even though I got sweaty I didn’t feel drenched and weighed down.
Now that I have this top the stripey tank has caught my eye and would be perfect for summer. Oh and if you are a bride-to-be and a runner you will love this.
Now that you have fallen in love with this top (you have right?) I should mention that they sent me two and since it isn’t in my size one lucky person will have the chance to win this top. Now the top is the one you see to the left (same color) and is in a size medium, however depending on how you like your clothes to fit it could easily fit someone who wears a small. Now here is how you enter, oh and this is open to US and Canadian residence and you can enter until April 10th at midnight.
The Winner is:
