Write It Down, Do It Up – Week of Dec. 16

Hey, hey—long time no talk!  Between going to the Open House at Random House, having my family visit, and running the NYCRUNS Hot Chocolate 10-K today, this weekend whizzed by!  I owe you too many recaps to count, so those will start cycling through tomorrow morning.  Overall, though, this Friday-to-Sunday packed a ton of fun.


I also managed to complete almost every scheduled workout. (Yesterday’s planned indoor bike trainer ride didn’t happen because I opted for a 30-min. shakeout run instead.) Looking ahead to this week, I have another busy schedule.  As usual, biking will be my number one priority, even more so now because I don’t know if I’ll be able to spend any time in the saddle when I head home for the holidays. (Syracuse peeps:  Are there any indoor spinning/triathlon-specific cycling classes that don’t require participants to bring a bike?) I will have access to a pool, though, so swimming won’t be an issue.  OK, time for Write It Down, Do It Up!

(If you’re new to WIDDIU, here’s how it works:  Every Sunday evening, I post my workout schedule for the week, and I invite you to do the same.  This way, we can motivate each other and hold ourselves accountable.  Sounds like a win-win, right?)

Monday – a.m. run and strength train; p.m. bike (trainer workout during the SU game)

Tuesday – a.m. run; p.m. swim

Wednesday – a.m. bike and strength train

Thursday – a.m. run; p.m. swim

Friday – off

Saturday – a.m. run; p.m. swim

Sunday – easy run or swim

How was your weekend?  Did you race/workout?  Which workouts are you looking forward to this week?

  1. man you still get those double days even with a job, that blows my mind!

  2. Can’t wait to hear about your weekend!! Sounds like you were very busy, but that it was very fun at the same time. 😀

  3. I wish there was a hot chocolate run here, stupid Florida lol! Xo

  4. Sounds awesome! How was the hot chocolate race? I remember when they came to DC it was a disaster. Hopefully much better!

    • It was definitely different from what I was expecting, and since I wasn’t going into it with a serious/”I’m going to race and PR this course” mentality, it was fun. I hoped for dark chocolate hot chocolate at the end, but no dice. 😉

  5. I look forward to your Hot Chocolate race re-cap.
    Saturday was cold and rainy so I went to the indoor track and ran 3 miles. Yesterday was a yoga and pilates DVD that made me feel long and lean!

  6. Sounds like you had a busy weekend! I took the weekend off from working out so I’m ready to get back after it this evening!

  7. Hey Carrie! I love WIDDIU – you know that’s almost a palendrome, which makes it all the more fabulous. I’m training for my first ever half marathon, and it’s funny because my workout schedule this week looks a lot like yours. I have runs on Tu, Th, and Su, strength on M and W, rest on F, and circuits on Sa. Should be fun! 🙂

  8. Looking forward to hear about the race! We didn’t race this weekend but I ran 9.5 miles on Saturday and 6 miles on Sunday.
