Weekend: Running, Riding & a Drone
I've got running, riding and a drone video to share and a weekly recap of exercises, too.
Last Saturday, there was a 5K race at the park where I do most of my running, riding and walking. I showed up with my bike just as the race was starting and some of the participants offered me money for my bike - wanting to cross the finish line sooner!
My husband, who has a drone business, Flying Phantoms, brought his drone and made this Resurrection 5K video for the church putting on the race. My favorite parts of the video are the bird's eye views of the park and the people waving at the drone.
I rode my bike and then I ran 6 miles. My legs felt sluggish when I tried to speed up after riding and running a warm-up mile, but the race was a good distraction. There were lots of high-fives and cheers all around. I finished up my workout morning with a walk with a friend and both of our dogs.
On Easter morning, after my bike ride and core workout, I went to the park. It was such a contrast from the day before - quiet. That was good, though. It made it easier to run multiple times around a small lake (8 x 400 meters). At first, eight seemed like too many, but once I had finished four, I knew I'd complete the eight I had planned to do. And that wrapped up my weekend workouts!
Thursday: 4 mile run w/6 1-min hills (more hill workouts), full body workout
Friday: 3 mile run w/4 sprints
Saturday: 35 min. ride, 6 mile run, arms: weights (video)
Sunday: 45 min. ride, 5 mile run (8x400m), core workout
Tuesday: 5 mile run (8 short hills and 4 stair flights), full body and back workout
Wednesday: 12 miles with last 5 miles the fastest (longest run since The Woodlands Marathon 4 weeks ago), core workout
Totals: 35 miles of running, 2 rides and 5 other workouts
I hope you got in some good workouts this week, too!
