More for my benefit that yours, I want to do a post every Sunday recapping the past week's workouts. It's definitely good for me to see what I'm actually up to, and which areas (ahem, strength training) I need to work on. So...

Monday: 6.5 Mile Run
Tuesday: 12 Mile Run
Wednesday: 5.5 Mile Run
                   Resistance Bands: chest, shoulders, back, biceps, triceps 
                   100 Push-Up Challenge Week 5 (Workout #3)
Thursday: Rest Day :)
Friday: 6.5 Mile Run
             Resistance Bands: chest, shoulders, back, biceps, triceps
             100 Push-Up Challenge Week 5 (Workout #3--Repeat)
Saturday: 5.5 Mile Run
Sunday: 25 Minutes Elliptical, 10 Minutes Rowing

Total Weekly Mileage: 35.5 Miles

The picture of above has nothing to do with this post...I just bought a big box of Nerds and wanted to show them off. They really make me so happy :)

Do you have a way of tracking your workouts and comparing one week to the next?

More importantly, how awesome are Nerds?


  1. That is an AWESOME week! I use daily mile to track everything, but do a similar week recap every week to figure out how I did and set goals for the next week. It works really well for me!

  2. I like the idea of adding in goals for the following week as well! I think I'll do that next week, thanks for the great idea! :)

  3. This is probably not the best way to track...but I have a table in a word doc that I save and keep track of my mileage each week and whether I ran outside or on the TM. I also keep track of the mileage on my shoes in that document as well. On my outside runs I use garmin connect (online) when I upload my runs and in the notes section I write a lot about how I felt during the run...I also keep track of my workouts every day on my blog...just to hold me accountable :)

    way to go on your mileage!!! it sounds like you had some awesome runs this week!

  4. I used to have a journal and Nike+ until I found Dailymile. I love that I can update it anywhere and at anytime...and track how many donuts I burned off. *smile* I love this weekly recap! I may start doing something similar. You had a terrific week! What a inspiration!

  5. I'm so glad you left a comment so I could stumble over to your blog too! Just looking at your mileage I know it's going to be an awesome motivator for me!! I keep a calendar hanging by my front door that I write my mileage on... I love the visual reminder to get outside so I can keep adding to it. Also, I've been wanting to try a cinnamon roll Larabar forever but they don't seem to exist in Canada. Hopefully I can find them when I go to San Fran next month!!

  6. That's an awesome workout week! I started using Dailymile, and I really like it.

    Nerds are the beest!!

  7. I love Nerds, they are my favorite candy! Followed by sweetarts!

    Check out my Cory Renee Clutch Giveaway!!

  8. I keep a calendar with workouts planned out on it - then write down what I actually do. Its a good way to keep myself accountable because its pretty obvious when I slack off! I like seeing other people's workouts posted on their blogs to get inspired! :)

    LOVE nerds! Have you ever had a nerds rope? Its basically a super long piece of licorice covered in nerds - amazing!

Are You a Salty Sweater? The Truth About Sodium and Running

Before I started running regularly, I did my best to avoid salt. After all, if you want to lose weight you're supposed to reduce sodium, right? Here's what the American Federal Government's recommendations for sodium intake (as of January 2011)

-if you're 51+ years old, black, have hypertension, kidney disease or diabetes, you get 1,500 mg. each day
-if you're a healthy adult, you get 2,300 mg. per day. A teaspoon. 

Now most of the time, I don't have an issue with this. Salt isn't used too much in my cooking, and I avoid a lot of common processed foods filled with sodium. When I do indulge in a salty meal, usually from a restaurant, I get the associated water weight gain and bloating. So I'm happy to stick to my meeting my 2,300 mg. requirements each day.

And then...summer arrives. If you're running in high humidity, you sweat. A lot. It's not pretty, and you're draining your body of electrolytes like sodium. On my long runs, I take precauti…

DIY Treadmill Desk

Working from home has its perks. Sure, my social interaction skills are deteriorating rapidly and casual dress Fridays now include those old ratty boxers and that one race shirt with the hole, but I also get to enjoy things like eating lunch at 10:30 because I feel like it and deciding where I want to work. Like on the treadmill.

Between working at my desk all day, using my computer for fun and then sitting on the couch watching television most nights for an hour or two, it's safe to say I sit on my ass a lot. And yep, that's not so great for you. Even though I work out 6 days a week, I hate that I spend easily 75% of my waking hours sitting.

On a whim, I asked Tim if he could build me a treadmill desk. I've seen these massive contraptions to make treadmill desks, but they basically transform it into a full-time desk, and I still want to use my treadmill for running (sans desk) as well. Magic carpenter man took a few measurements and brought me in a prototype by lunchtime.…

I Wanna Play! My 7 Links

I've been loving the "7 Links" Posts circulating the blogging world lately, so when I was tagged by Holly at Rust Belt Runner I couldn't wait to participate. Without further ado, here are my Seven Links...

Most Popular Post: Aside from giveaways (and we know why those are popular), one of my most read and commented on post was about my Weight Loss Journey. It got so much attention, it deserved it's own little tab at the top of my page!

Most Controversial Post: My post Good Person > Good Racer was possibly the most controversial. I talked about my own experience racing with my husband, and whether or not it is racer etiquette (or just plain rude) to pass someone when you planned on running together. Lots of differing options in this area!

Most Helpful Post: One of my earlier posts was titled What's Worth It, and recapped some running extras and whether or not they're beneficial. I go so much great feedback on products like foam rollers, compression sock…
