Last Workout Recap for 2018!


This last week in workouts for 2018 (!!) started out in Disney World. I LOVE the hotel gym at the Hilton Bonnet Creek Resort so I always go down for like 30 minutes first thing in the morning before we go to breakfast.

It’s worth acknowledging that Disney is a walking, active trip so in my eyes, the entire trip is a workout! This year I’ve really learned to enjoy a nice walk so I definitely didn’t mind how active our Disney trips was, even though it’s always so thoroughly exhausting. I wore my sneakers and totally appreciated the Florida weather this time of year. It was beautiful!

It really is so crazy that this is my last workout recap for 2018. I’m still in awe of how my workout routine changed this year after dropping that shampoo bottle on my foot during New Year’s weekend 2017. I am forever grateful for that situation because it helped me to make the change to running less. We will discuss this a little more tomorrow as I’m planning a 2018 recap!

Monday – Hotel Gym

30 minutes on a different elliptical from the one I’m used to and I really appreciated the change! Each type of elliptical feels different, you know?

Did a few upper body free weight exercises too.

Tuesday – Hotel Gym

I started on the elliptical but wasn’t feeling it so after 5 minutes, I switched to the treadmill for some incline walking. I went into this trip knowing I would NOT bother to run on the treadmill as I could use the break/Disney is so active that running just isn’t necessary.

I’m not sure how long I was walking on the treadmill (maybe 20 minutes?) before I switched to weights and squats and things like that.

We did a ton of walking both around the parks and around the hotel. I love to walk between the Hilton and Waldorf since they share one property.


Wednesday – 35 Min Run

We had a late night flight last night. I woke up exhausted but knew I needed to finish up the laundry and get back to routine. I opted for a run by time rather than track distance and pace workout. 35 minutes running outdoors was more than enough and then I walked another 25 minutes. I love a good walk.

Thursday – 5 Miles

I was up/out late last night but somehow this run went really fast even though I was tired. By the end of the run, I was wide awake and really could have kept going!

Friday – 45 Min Pure Barre

I don’t think I ever did this specific Pure Barre On Demand workout — I liked it!

Saturday – 7 Miles

It was 50 degrees and sunny this morning so I had to run outside! I think I even overdressed! I wasn’t sure what I wanted to do but ended up with something like this:

1 mile warm up + 2 miles of 2 min hard x 1 min easy + a few more miles of figuring out if I wanted to keep running for an hour or cut it short. I ultimately ran 7 miles and then walked for 20 minutes as a cool down.

Sunday – Pure Barre

Just a quick reminder to check out what’s left at Henri Bendel — they are clearly closing soon as very little is left!

How was your last week in workouts for 2018? Are you planning to continue the same routine in 2019 or are you shaking things up/training for an upcoming race?
