Half Marathon Training: Week 15

Wow!!  Half marathon training is officially over!!!

Weekly Recaps:

Week 15: September 26 – October 2, 2011

Monday: 26

AM: 30 min biking | 195 calories
PM: 3.1 miles ran | 391 calories

Tuesday: 27

AM: 10-Min Solution: Rapid Results Pilates on Netflix.  I did the Waist Slimmer section and liked it.  It really was quick and interesting.  I plan to do this again and look forward to seeing lots of improvement!

At home legs workout, did the following 2x

  • 12 Squats w/ 5lb weights
  • 12 lunges w/ 5lb weights (once per leg)
  • 12 box set ups w/ 5lb weights (once per leg)
  • 12 hamstrings
    Really hard to explain this one but it works.  Lean over the box on your stomach.  Place 8lb weight in the crook of the back of your knee.  slightly bend your knee so the weight is secure.  Then just do a leg lift. If I find a pic or a video on the web, I’ll add it later.
