This weekend definitely went by too quickly.  Don’t they all?

Friday night was somewhat shot since Tim was flying in from a business trip in DC, and I had to shoot home to pick something up from my parents’ house.  We managed to time it so Tim could come with me and we could grab a pizza at Flatbreads before heading back to our apartment where we pretty much fell asleep immediately.  Wah wuh.

Saturday included an early morning workout, Ashley’s bridal shower, and then some serious couch time.  I just needed to SIT.  Ashley looked so pretty at her shower and everything was wonderful.  I didn’t know anybody there (seriously not one other person!) but everyone was so nice and welcoming.  AND it seemed like many of them are F&F readers, which was kind of awesome and unexpected.

Here are a couple of pictures I snapped:

Finally on Sunday Tim and I ventured up to Gloucester/Rockport for a fun little day trip / date day.  Recap post coming soon!

For now, let’s dive into weekly workouts.

Weekly Workouts

Last Week’s Workouts

Rest day

I squeezed in an early morning Memorial Day workout: 30 minutes on the elliptical followed by 15 minutes of core strength work.  The rest of the day was spent kayaking at Cochituate State Park.  Kayaking is a no joke upper body burner!


15 minutes of sprints on the spin bike, then taught my animal theme class.

Train Like an Animal Workout

Active rest — walked with Sheila at lunch in Southcoast for Walking Wednesdays

Taught my 6am class.  We focused on lower body tabata for the first half of class since last week we focused on upper body tabata.  We were still able to do a short upper body and cardio circuit toward the end though.  Sweaty!

Traffic was awful, so I decided to take advantage of the gym at work instead of sitting in a bumper to bumper mess on the Mass Pike to get to the Y.  I did 30 minutes of cardio on the elliptical, and then 20 minutes of core and balance work.  By the end?  Highway was clear.  For the win.

Friday Workout

Forced myself to wake up at 8 to get my sweat on before Ashley’s bridal shower.  I did this workout that Jen posted last week and that I included in last week’s Friday Favorites.  I adjusted a couple of things, but it was a good one.  I especially love squat jumps onto the bosu.  Thank you, Jen!

This Week’s Workouts

Here’s what’s on the agenda for this week:

  • Sunday:  Rest day
  • Monday:  Cardio workout TBD
  • Tuesday:  Subbing outdoor bootcamp and teaching Interval
  • Wednesday:  Active rest / light cardio

Of course it’s subject to change and I can be easily persuaded by workout buddies. 🙂

How were your workouts last week?  Do they change at all with the change of season and weather?  Anyone rock outdoor workouts more often?  What’s up for the week ahead – anyone trying anything new?

Time to tackle the week ahead!
