Weekly Workout Roundup

Wow, this weekend really seemed to fly by! Saturday was a gorgeous spring (yes, I did say spring) day.  Temps in the low 70s and very little humidity.  I tried my very best to stay outside all day long and did a pretty good job at it.  After knocking out my 14 mile run (hooray for cut back weeks!) I hurried over to a local half marathon so I could cheer on one of my running friends.
The cowbell is ready for some action.

I had so much fun being a spectator and cheering everyone on!  After the race I hung out with friends at the post race party and then grabbed some pizza.
Yesterday, on the other hand, was rather unspectacular.  I had a project that I needed to get finished which kept me tied up from 8:30 am to 7 pm.  UGH! I didn’t get anything done that I had planned on.  No cross training, no yoga, no fun stuff outside.  Boo.  But on the plus side, I got what I needed to finished and submitted. *weight off shoulders*Oh well.
Today starts a new week so no use complaining about yesterday.  Here’s how I did on my workouts last week.
Monday: 20 minutes of cycling (warmup), 7 mile run with 7 strides, kettlebell workout, 24 pushups.
Tuesday: (AM) Yoga – seated hip openers, (PM) 60 minutes of cycling (hill training) totaling 14.43 miles.
Wednesday: 7.4 mile run at 8:56 pace, Irish Coast Running Group.  I tried to hang with the fast kids but ended up losing them. 26 pushups.
Thursday: (AM) Yoga – hip flexors; (PM) 5 mile run.

Friday:  Mini upper body session.  Biceps, triceps, deltoids.

Saturday:  14 mile {hilly} long run (10:14 pace).

Sunday.  30 pushups.

Question:  Have you ever spectated a race? What’s your favorite way to cheer on runners?
