H&F Week of 7/27/09

Last week’s exercise schedule went as planned except for Sunday. I spent the morning in cleaning mode, so I wanted to share the reminder of the day with hubby and the baby. In the old days this would have sent me into a semi-panic, but with better perspective now, time with my family is more important than missing a single workout.

This week’s schedule:

Monday: 70 mins elliptical, abs   completed
Tuesday: 7 mi run w/ jogging stroller
Wednesday: 7 mi run
Thursday: 3.5 mi run w/ jogging stroller, 30 mins elliptical
Friday: off
Saturday: 70 mins elliptical, abs
Sunday: 7 mi run

You may wonder how I’m choosing the amounts of running and elliptical work to do. Two loops around the neighborhood lake is approximately 7 miles, and it currently takes me a little over an hour to run that distance (depends on whether I have the stroller not). I equate 70 minutes on the elliptical at 75%-85% max hr to 60 minutes of running. I’m still working on rebuilding my endurance base, so there’s not much variety. Just trying to put in my time, at least an hour of cardio at each shot.

I’ve added returnsforsale.com to the list of discount websites I stalk daily. Today I scored a Valco Universal Sunshade for 12 bucks. According to the product description, it should be compatible with our BOB stroller. Little E is almost ready to graduate from the infant carrier to the regular stroller seat, so I’ve been meaning to get one of these. 70% off retail price…not too shabby.
