week 52 workout summary

Being the savvy and detail-oriented people you are, dear readers, you have no doubt noticed that this Weekly Workout Summary neither lands on a Monday, nor does it contain 7 days of workouts. The reason for this is that the 365 day challenge is now officially complete! As of yesterday – Dec 31, 2013 – I achieved my goal of…

week 51 workout summary

I am so excited to report that after 3.5 days without power due to a massive ice storm that hit Toronto on Saturday Dec 21st, our power came back on early Christmas morning. Friends, I don’t know how our forefathers did it. (Or how the Amish do it today for that matter…) Call me spoiled, I…

week 50 workout summary

The highlight of this week had to be the strength it took to get in a workout on Tuesday night (technically Wednesday morning). Tuesday for me began with a 4am wake up time so that I could be at the airport by 5:30 for a 6:30 flight to New York. Clearly there was no working out before…

week 46 workout summary

I will never regret my 5k Ugly Sweater Run a week ago Saturday, but as I noted in my race recap post and also in last week’s weekly update, running with a head cold wreaked havoc on my already weakened immune system. This past week was spent paying for my good time Saturday. An incessant cough, accompanied with a lovely…

week 45 workout summary

The week started out strong, with a heavier focus on cardio, in preparation for my first ever 5k race on Saturday. Things went slightly off track on Wednesday when I woke up with a head cold. I assumed that my under-the-weather feeling would lift by the end of the day. You see, since January 1st and embarking on…

week 44 workout summary

Week 44, AKA a return to BodyPump.  I’m so pumped (pun intended) to be back in Toronto and my BodyPump classes at the gym.  Since we were still officially on the road Sunday (we flew from Vegas to Buffalo on Saturday, then stayed overnight for the Bills game on Sunday), it meant arriving home pretty…

week 41 workout summary

The highlight of this workout week was, no doubt, my hike at Mary Jane Falls on Wednesday because a) it was on my birthday, and b) it was a new personal best.  Aside from that, in the vein of continuing to try new things, on Thursday I tackled the parcourse at the outdoor track nearby. I have…

week 40 workout summary

Overall, I’m pretty pleased with this week’s workouts. I feel good about meeting my new goal of achieving a better mix between cardio and strength training. From a ‘trying new things’ perspective, I attempted Chin Ups and Dips on that fantastic machine at the gym that “assists” you by providing counterweight. Make no mistakes about how big a help…
