Weekly Workouts Away: Lots of Running + BodyPump

I am home in Charlotte after spending the last week in Georgia. I think this was the longest I’ve been away from Charlotte in almost two years. While I appreciated every second of time being with my family, it was so wonderful to see my girls and get a big hug from my fiance after an emotional week.

I had a pretty strong week of workouts despite being away. There’s a nice gym that offers Les Mills classes that I joined for the week and I got some running in. I did miss my yoga practice but I’ll be getting lots of that in over the next two months as I am participating in our annual yoga challenge at the studio.



BodyPump + BodyAttack

So I wanted to get some cardio in after BodyPump and BodyAttack was starting right after. I decided to give it a go and holy crap! I was sweating like crazy after 5 minutes. Fun workout.


3 mile run + yoga

I got a quick three mile run in and then visited a yoga studio that opened recently in my grandmother’s small town. It was a lovely class and a great stretch! Felt good.


5 rounds:

10 pull ups
20 wall balls
20 kettlebell deadlifts
10 burpees
20 sit ups

Did this on my own at the gym.



5 mile run

Sunset run along the river.





6.5 mile run

Another river run. Since I missed the Thunder Road Half, I decided to run “half of a half.” haha


It was a gorgeous day for a run. 60 degrees, sunny and beautiful scenery!


Hot yoga

Home sweet sweaty Y2 Yoga home! 🙂 I taught and took a class.

Tell me about your week of workouts? Did anyone race this weekend? How did it go!?

    Love the looks of that “5 rounds” circuit – I want to do it this week! I sort of front-loaded my workouts this week and then thoroughly enjoyed a lighter, restful weekend. Hope everything is alright with your family <3

    Hi Jen,

    Glad you returned home safely. I haven’t been getting email updates when you have a new post for the past week or so, maybe a little longer. Thanks!

      Thanks for letting me know! We’ll look into it!

    Great job squeezing in workouts even when you’re traveling!

    • Jen DeCurtins November 16, 2015, 1:35 pm

      Thanks! The weather was too perfect to not run at least a few times!

    Beautiful place to run 🙂
    I’m so missing bodypump….but I would need to join a gym again 😛

    • Jen DeCurtins November 16, 2015, 1:35 pm

      I rarely do it anymore, but I love it when I get the chance to take a class!

  • Julie @ Running in a Skirt November 16, 2015, 3:08 pm

    Glad you are back home safe! I hope everything is ok.
    I didn’t race this weekend but the guy sitting next to me at the doctors office ran the Thunder Road Half… thought of you 🙂

      Hey Julie, thanks so much for the well wishes. All is good.

    Hey Jen! Just wanted to say I really love your week of workouts. As a trainer, it’s nice to be able to pull great workouts from others when you just can’t think anymore! Funny story. Thursday last week, I had my class do the Christmas Cookie Cutter. My other trainer/class instructor came in for the class and started giggling. Here, she had her morning class do the SAME WORKOUT!!!! But she made them do 30 reps of a core exercise between each exercise. Thank you for being a fantastic, reliable source for all things fitness, nutrition, insight, and more. Sincerely,

      Hey Alicia,

      Thanks so much for the comment and for trying my workouts. I couldn’t agree with you more on needing workout inspiration. I joke all the time that I need to hire a trainer for myself!

      I love the story about your fellow trainer using the same workout! Makes me feel so happy that people are using my workouts! 🙂

      Please feel free to share any great workouts you might have. I’m always looking for new inspiration!
