Sunday Runday: Week 6

sunday-runday

Hello again!

Sunday Runday are a series of posts that I will post (you guessed it!) every Sunday.  In it, I will be writing down my fitness plan for the week.  These posts are meant first and foremost to motivate myself, however if they motivate you too, then that’s awesome!

Please feel free to comment, leave suggestions, give words of encouragement…  If you would like to link to a post you wrote regarding fitness, nutrition or your week’s plan, the comment section of this post is the place to do so!

Right now, each week consists of 3 days of running and 1 day of at-home crossfit-type workout.  I’m planning on expanding to 2 days of the crossfit-type workout once it stops taking me three days to recover.

I am currently following the C25K (Couch to 5K) training program for my runs.

As for the crossfit sessions, they are broken into two sections: strength and WOD (or workout of the day).  They are based on a 6 week plan that Simply Sadie Jane has posted on her blog.  To keep myself motivated and encouraged, I have given myself the following “rules”.

  1. My goal is to finish everything in 20 minutes
  2. If I start a set and my 20 minutes are over, I have to finish the whole set.  This avoids me, for example, doing my lunges very slowly when I see the 20 minute mark approaching so that can get out of doing burpees hehe.

How last week went

  • Runs: Runs were awesome last week.  Though I missed my Thursday run and ended up doing it on Saturday morning instead, it was for the better.  It felt soooooo good running outdoors!
  • Crossfit: Because of a few funky changes in the week’s routine, I didn’t get around to doing it.  Not to worry, this week’s the week!

  1. Ahhhh!!! Every time I see this post, I am encouraged and feel motivated to start back to exercising but then I don’t make time for it.
    This week I really want to begin a daily abs routine and work on my thighs and bottom every other day. Aerobics may have to wait.
    Nice job, Sophie!!

    1. Organized? Hehe, that’s a work in progress. Motivated? Well, it helps that I’ve put my plan up on my blog. It helps keep me accountable. Plus, I get to enjoy encouragements from all of you guys. That is super motivating!

      Pushups and yoga sound like a great mix. What’s important is that you’re taking the time, right? Do you take/ have you taken yoga lessons or do you do it from home?

  2. Thank you for posting, as you mentioned, seems the blog works to motivate, as well as, keep you accountable, outstanding!

    Reminds me of the phrase “Qui Docet Discet” those who teach, learn. Hope you keep pushing forward to achieve…

    I’d encourage adding some light weight/ resistance movements to your muscle strengthing.

    I’m a rookie blogger, literally days… and will be talking about physical fitness as well as investing strategy, hope to see followers and share strategy!

    1. Thanks for your comment and welcome to the blogging world! Will definitely be checking it out! I’m mostly doing body weight stuff because it’s quite enough for me, but I was planning on adding some light weights this week.

Let me know what you think! Please?!?
