HBBC week 2

I know I've been slacking on my blogging. 

So here we are recapping week 2 of the HBBC.

Sunday (11/24) - 60 mins on the elliptical
I couldn't muster up the energy to layer on the clothes to go for a run so I hit the elliptical for a little cross-training instead.
I don't love the elliptical but it was a nice change of pace.

Monday (11/25) - Chest/back/core workout & 3.5 mile run
I had to modify my workouts a bit as you can see.
Free weights and a stability ball = great workout.

I took advantage of my Dad being home.
He watched little man and I went for a run.
I'm not loving the cold weather but what can you do.

Tuesday (11/26) - Arms/shoulders/core workout & yoga

Another modified workout.
I really like using the stability ball because if forces you to sit up straight which forces you to engage your core.

Wednesday (11/27) - Leg workout & 60 mins on the elliptical
A variety of leg exercises and later that day I hit the elliptical.

Thursday (11/28) - 7 mile run
7 cold miles with two awesome ladies.
I think all runs should end at Starbucks.
It makes the coffee taste that much better.
I think this was the perfect way to start Thanksgiving.

Friday (11/29) - 3 mile run
3 easy miles to just get my body moving

This was how I spent my Friday night.
I know you're jealous....

Saturday (11/30) - Weights and 2 mile run
I met a friend at the gym.
We hit the machines and then did some free weights.
After that I hit the treaddie for 2 miles.

Total points - 64.5

Another great week. Almost everyday was a 2-a-day which I like.
