Back To Running (weekly workout recap)


I’m totally back to running after that brief week with my hamstring bothering me. I mean it when I say that I never run with any sort of aches or pains so for me to have said my hamstring didn’t feel right, means it really didn’t feel right.

But I’m all better now and hey, that didn’t take long!

Last Week’s Workouts

I was really in the mood to run after testing out running last weekend to realize my hamstring was better! I am, however, being really careful not to push my pace too quickly and risk my hamstring feeling tight again.

  • 4 Runs
  • 2 Barre Classes
  • 2 Pilates Classes
  • 1 Yoga Class
  • 1 Walk Class
  • 1 Spin Class

Monday – 20 Min Run + 45 Min Barre (2 lb weights + ball + band)

My hamstring felt fine and normal during my 20-minute warm-up run on the treadmill today before barre! I was still cautious, gradually increasing the speed from 6 to 6.8, hovering between 6.3-6.5 with inclines between 1 – 3%.

Tuesday – 20 Min Run + 45 Min Spin (Beats & Bands)

Wednesday – 60 Min Bala Bangle Barre Burn


Thursday – 30 Min Run + 60 Min Pilates

I signed up for Vinyasa Yoga today (my favorite Thursday class!) but they called me from Equinox shortly after to say the instructor was sick and yoga would be changed to pilates at the last minute.

Friday – OFF

Saturday – 30 Min Run + 60 Min Vinyasa Yoga

I skipped spin and the run class in favor of an easy run on my own. While I kept it easy with speeds between 6.3- 6.8 and inclines between 1 – 4%, I did slowly increase my speed to the 7 – 7.5 speed range in the last ten minutes while paying attention to my hamstring to ensure all felt fine. All was good!

Sunday – 45 Min Precision Walk Elevate + 45 Min Pilates

Both of these classes have become so popular that I have to sign up when registration opens 24 hours in advance to get my spot! Seriously, people show up without signing up for pilates and are turned away lately.
