Charleston Half Training – 12/1-12/7 – Week 5

December 8, 2014

And the weekends go by with a snap.  This week went pretty well:

Monday 12/1 –60 minutes barre 

Tuesday 12/2 – 60 minutes personal training + 3 miles

Wednesday 12/3  3 miles 

Thursday 12/4 – 1 mile

Friday 12/5 – 2 miles

Saturday 12/6 4 miles + 60 minutes personal training + 1 mile + 60 minutes barre

Sunday 12/7 – Jingle all the Way 5K + 1 mile + 60 minutes yoga

Total: 18.1 miles

I covered about 4 miles more than last week and attended 3 barre/yoga classes.  Remember the plank challenge I shared last time?  My fitness highlight of the week was holding the forearm plank (with good form) for 1 minute, an improvement of 30 seconds.

This week I also walked through City Center (new DC neighborhood-ish in DC with the fancy schmancy shops that I do not go to) to see their holiday decorations.

The had a gorgeous tree (I think it looks nicer than the White House one..)

Another social/food highlight of the week was the hazelnut crème brûlée at Bearnaise. The restaurant is owned by Chef Spike of Top Chef fame and I had a Gilt City deal for dinner.  I was surprised how good the steak was and thought it was better than Le Diplomate’s version of the dish.

What else did I do this weekend…ran another 5K – my second to last race of 2014.

Today I am linking up with Tara at Running n’ Reading for her Weekend Update.

How was your week/end?

Are you a hazelnut fan?
