Weekly Workout Recap

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!
