PBB: Workout Recap 4.

There was no shortage of flexibility with my workouts this week and it really frustrates me how tired travelling is! I could have had a little bit more sweat happening this weekend but I was so exhausted from travelling (aka sitting on my ass in a car all day) and networking that I was lucky to get the few workouts I did this weekend! That said, I ended up sticking to my schedule and getting some fresh air to boot!

THURSDAY: On Thursday I got a solid strength workout done in the morning before I hit the road for Kananaskis. Once I got there I worked on my presentation and practiced it a few times before attending the first keynote speech and “attempting” to get a good sleep (spoiler alert: I failed hard at that one).

FRIDAY: On Friday morning I set my alarm for 4:50am and got my arm strength session done in the hotel gym for an hour. Later in the day I did a bit of a run/walk in order to avoid the ice patches on the trails around the hotel. It was not a run to write home about but it got the job done.

SATURDAY: On Saturday I slept in until 6:30am to catch up on some of the sleep I lost the night before and then saved my workout for some fresh air time in the afternoon once the conference was done. I did a short hike (~4km) and lots of walking around the hotel before calling it a night and settling in for the evening.

SUNDAY: On Sunday I drove the four hours back home in order to get back in time for an 8-hour shift at work. I fully committed to my rest day and didn’t get a workout in, leaving me to be fully rested to kick ass for the month of February, RIGHT?!

I am so excited to start February. A new month starting on a Monday?! Hell yes! I am planning on incorporating more push-ups into my strength training routine this month and I’m making it my challenge of the month. I am getting a lot stronger but I am somehow so scared of push-ups!

I know that the next PBB workout recap will contain an equal amount of flexibility as I am headed to Montreal in three sleeps! I am hoping to find an awesome gym close to the apartment we’re renting so I can get some quality strength sessions in, plus of course I’ll be bringing my shoes and running gear to run around Montreal!

How was your weekend?

What are your goals for February?

Anyone racing this month?!

    1. I love Workout 2! I can’t even tell you how much I’m enjoying this smmeur shape-up program. I find it manageable, inspiring, and I’m feeling great! I took your advice and did the workout before HIIT, and I felt I put more effort into the strength moves and was more careful to have good form. Thanks for your input!PS- You have also inspired me to buy colourful shorts.

  1. My weekend was pretty low key but good! I’m mostly excited that it’s February because I’m going to Mexico at the end of the month. The countdown is on! Have an amazing time in Montreal – I love that city!
