Hi divas and happy Monday! I hope all of you had a wonderful week and weekend. My week was pretty good as I finally started to get back into the swing of things following a few weeks off of running. So now it’s time for another edition of The Weekly Report when I share the news from the past week and my goals for the upcoming week.
The Weekly Report April 27, 2014
Return to running. Following three weeks of not running after completing my spring races, I finally laced up my shoes and walked out the door. Even though I completed my races this spring, they did not go as well as I had wanted. So I have reevaluated my workout regimen and have begun to focus on my base fitness. I ended up running 3 days this week for 7 miles. Not the large number of miles I am used to, but I am happy to say that I did manage to maintain my run/walk ratio with no skipping on the running.
Cross-training. Another part of my workout regimen that I want to improve on is my cross & strength training. I have come to love high intensity interval workouts as they can take as little or much time as I want and they incorporate both cardio and strength. I managed one day of cross training this week. Check out The Diva 30-60-90 HIIT Workout.
Boston virtual 5K. My return to running was on Monday which coincided with the Boston Marathon. My husband and I ran the We Stand With Boston 5K. I finished in just under 45 minutes which was pretty good for me.
Ambassadorships. I was named a Bulu Box Ambassador and a member of the Honey Stinger Hive this week. I am super excited to be working with these companies and look forward to sharing my experiences with my readers.
The Divas Digest. This week also saw the beginning of The Divas Digest, the weekly newsletter of Divas Run for Bling. Each week I will share news from the blog, my blog posts (in case you missed them) and some special deals & tidbits for my followers. You can sign up for The Divas Digest in the sidebar.
Goals for this week:
- Running. I plan on running 4 days this week. I would like to get at least 10 miles in, but I will focus more on maintaining my intervals than a specific mileage.
- Cross training. I will do 2 days of cross & strength training this week.
