A few days ago, I wrote about my March goals and had changed up how I wanted to track my fitness. I was struggling to get runs in and decided to change it from “amount of workouts” goal setting to a time based goal setting.

This week, I was quite determined to hit my 3 hour per week goal and I did it! I’m quite happy that this week’s workouts hit my goals for me. I started by spinning for 80 minutes (gently) on Wednesday at the gym.

Friday, I tried to go for a run and it did not end too well. Of course it was freezing cold (my weather app said -5 and it was sunny!) and I practically froze my butt off. Soooooooo I booked it home after bumping into another runner and telling him I made a horrible mistake haha. Note the lack of a hat in the photo below. I was so cold! Darn wind chill!

So in the evening, the dude and I made our way to the gym instead. I did an easy 52 minute spin and some stretching.

Saturday, I went back to the gym for another spin session. Are you seeing a theme here? Spinning is starting to climb its way up my list of favourite workouts! I’m loving how the gym has an option where you can ride with a view of a cycling path in Scotland and it makes a long ride more enjoyable.

After 45 minutes, I made my way to the group fitness room and did some strengthen and stretching while the boys finished their arm workout.

  • 1 x 10, 1 x 15, 1 x 20 kneeling hip thrusters
  • 1 x 10, 2 x 15, 1 x 20 crossover step ups
  • 1 x 10, 1 x 15, glute bridges (elevated)
  • 2 x 10, 1 x 15, 1 x 20, single leg deadlifts
  • 2 x 10, reverses lunge to knee up

So how was your week? Did you get all your workouts in??

  1. I think I would enjoy cycling on my indoor trainer more if I had some great roads to look at. And I don’t mean on my teeny tiny iPhone screen. LOL. Congrats on meeting your 3 hour time goal. We get so focused on miles I don’t think we are always aware of how much time we actually spend being active. It helps to view from a different perspective. Thanks for linking, Carmy!
