Yogalates workout focussed on the upper body. These workouts are great to add to the other workouts because they are not as hard as the other which is nice for a change.
Total time: 28 minutes.
I didn’t feel like running on Saturday and I gave in to it. But I didn’t sit on the couch. I worked in the garden for 2 hours and walked with Bella.
It was cold, freezing cold, didn’t really expect that and I didn’t wear my thermo clothing but after about 10 minutes I was warmed up and it didn’t bother me anymore. Slow run but a very good one, it went smoothly. Intervals: 11:1
Weather:cold, fog, not much wind, 0C (32 degrees)
Distance: 5 K / 3.1 miles
Average time: 07:03 /km
Average speed: 8.5 km/hour

Chalean Extreme push circuit 3. Weights workout focussed on legs and chest. I used a heavier weight for the first time: 6 lbs (3 kg). For some of you that’s a baby weight, for me it’s a step forward. I’m definitely feeling it. But also in my legs and I won’t use heavy weights for my legs anymore. My legs are super strong and I don’t want soreness because it can interfer with my runs.
I also did 10 wall push ups. As of this week I’m working towards a full push up and start with wall push ups.
Total time: 32 minutes.
I wasn’t feeling well Tuesday night. I was tired and I felt weird. I was in bed before 10 pm which never happens. When the alarm went off this morning, I was tempted to stay in bed but decided I would go out for a run and see what would happen. I could always make it shorter. And so I did and I did make it a bit shorter than I had planned. It wasn’t that bad at all, I felt pretty good. Intervals: 13:1.
Weather:dry, some wind, 4C (39 degrees)
Distance: 3.2 K / 2 miles
Average time: 06:57 /km
Average speed: 8.6 km/hour

I missed two workouts last week but I’m okay with that. It’s okay to miss a workout or two every now and then. Overall I’m doing pretty well so far this year with my exercise.
I did decide however to add a few extra rest days to my schedule which means there will be weeks where I workout 6 days and other weeks 5 days. I don’t want to overtrain myself and I’ve noticed this past 3 months I need an extra rest day every now and then.
