Wow, it's been a looooong week. The weather here in Nebraska as been ah-mazing (in the upper 60's, mid-70's all week). I am so ready for spring!

But while it's been beautiful outside, the temperature in my office has been hovering between 81-86 degrees. Ugh!!


I've had my fan blowing directly on me! As you can see, I wasn't thrilled.

It has been really awful, and has made working incredibly challenging. By mid-afternoon I just felt so lethargic and uncomfortable. Feeling hot all day made after-work workouts feel super challenging. My early morning workouts even felt difficult just because the heat sucked my energy.

But it's the weekend, and I can now be in my comfortable home or outside enjoying the wonderful weather.

It's been FOREVER since I shared a week of workouts with you! I've been holding off because for a long time, I was just teaching fitness classes. I've been struggling with fitting in my own workouts with teaching fitness classes (which I've probably mentioned a few dozen times ; )

I'm finally doing some of my own workouts! I admit however, that I don't have a perfect balance. Sometimes I feel like I'm doing way too much. I definitely don't recommend all the two-a-day (or even three-a-day) workouts I've been doing.

I'm worried about overtraining, so I'm working on dialing it down in the classes that I teach. I teach all active classes (meaning I do the workout with my class), but I've been trying to instruct more than do lately. This allows me to have more energy for my own workouts and not overtrain my muscles (hopefully).

It was an incredibly hard decision, but I cut one of my fitness classes from my schedule. I've been struggling to fit in my weekday half-marathon training runs, so I cut my Thursday evening deep water aerobics class to give me time for running.

One of my goals is to incorporate more strength training into my routine (since I do sooooo much cardio), so I've also been working on that.

Here are my workouts from the past week:


Saturday, March 7 - 7 mile run


Sunday, March 8 - hiking (active recovery)


Monday, March 9 - BodyPump + taught Piloxing

Tuesday, March 10 - taught cycling + taught deep water aerobics

Wednesday, March 11 - power yoga class + 4 mile run + taught Piloxing


Thursday, March 12 - 3.3 mile run

Friday, March 13 - BodyPump

What did your workouts look like this week?
