February Fun Weekly Wrap
Who needs a little February fun? I do! Valentine’s day is on the way and so is my Gasparilla challenge. Oh, let’s not forget about my Major League golf scramble! This month is all about miles, golf balls and more attention to my cross training!
In case you got busy this past week I did post my Celebration Half marathon recap, make sure you check it out! It was a true celebration rain and all!
So last week we left off on Saturday. Coach M has mixed up my schedule a little to help get me ready for the Gasparilla challenge that I signed up for. I will be running a 15K on Saturday and a 8K on Sunday. I am not usually a back to back runner so this will be something new for me. This month is full of back to back weekend runs!
Sunday on the plan: 4 miles and 9 holes of golf
I just ran 7 miles on Saturday morning and I was surprised that rolling out of bed Sunday morning to get these 4 miles in was not bad at all. 4 miles 44:20 AVG HR 156 I was back before I knew it and in time to make a proper weekend breakfast. At my house that means there is bacon involved!
The hubby and I had a tee time at 1:58 pm , that does not mean 2:00 pm, they mean 1:58 pm. Love it! We were a little early so I practiced my putting until it was time to tee off. Any serious golfers out there? I am not. It was a beautiful Sunday for golf and I had a great time. I don’t keep a traditional score. I count pars and balls lost. Sunday= 0 pars and 1 ball lost. Success! 9 holes 2:10 minutes AVG HR 97- that does put me in the fat burning zone. BONUS!
Monday on the plan: REST! I think Coach M might have caught on that Monday and cross training is not a good mix for me. I may be more of a Monday and happy hour kind of gal.
Wednesday on the plan: REST and yoga We are up to the third chakra in our series and I am really enjoying it. The class focused on the solar plexus chakra or manipura- our ability to be confident and in control of our lives. Our focus was on the upper abdomen which meant a lot of core work! I could feel that class for 2 days! 60 minutes AVG HR 84
Thursday on the plan: 30 minutes of cardio plus drills This is the area I have not done so well with. I have ordered an ActivMotion bar to add to my training but that dang thing is not here yet! So I took my workout to the streets. I got a 30 minute walk in before work and did my drill sequence. AVG HR 94 HMMM, I need to get that higher so I tried it again after work, 30 more minutes of brisk walking, AVG HR 98. I tried! ActivMotion bar where are you????
Friday on the plan: REST- mission accomplished!
Saturday on the plan: 8 miles My BRF and I met to get in our miles and it was a nice 50 degrees. AWWW, I think this is really my favorite running temp! WE ran, we talked, we ran and we hit the bridge, we got it all in! 8.1 miles 1:30 minutes AVG HR 162
I did a quick shirt change in the parking lot and went to pick up my daughter to work the Junior League Mobile food bus. Hands down my favorite project! We provided food for 155 families Saturday morning and it was a thankful crowd. By 11:30 I finally got to sit down to a salad and a smoothie. It was a busy morning! 22731 Fitbit steps for the day, that makes me smile too!
This week’s most liked Instagram post is compliments of the hubby. I was just giving me the what for about all the chips he bought at the grocery store when he came walking in with these! #keeper
