Just one of those weeks…..Weekly Wrap
Have you ever had one of those weeks? You know, for whatever reason it is just not coming together. Weather was off, my speed was off, my tummy well- that was off too, just one of those weeks! I guess we are all entitled to one here and there so I won’t dwell to much about it. Let’s get this wrap up started!
Sunday on the plan: Double digits! Ten miles for this girl! I was feeling pretty adventurous so we ran over and back twice on this bridge. Nothing super fast for sure but steady is good! Kept to a 12 minute mile AVG HR 150 Thanks everyone, this was also the most liked Instagram post for the week!
Monday on the plan: REST and Yoga. I am loving starting the week with a 60 minute yin yoga class and after the 10 miler yesterday, the hip stretches felt FABULOUS! AVG HR 72 After I got home and followed it up with a 30 minute walk. AVG HR 105
Tuesday on the plan: 3 X 1600M at 80%. I was really focusing on trying to hit the 80% mark. I felt like I gave it 80% effort. 10:29/11:15/11:26 5.2 miles AVG HR 151
Wednesday on the plan: REST- nailed that! I am getting some spring cleaning done- so I feel productive about that. Oh yay, what spring? Temps plummet in central Florida and are expected to be below 40, seriously?
Thursday on the plan: That weather man was right! Temperature is 40 degrees and this Florida runner is cold. It was cold and windy and I broke out the thumbholes for the 4 miles on my schedule with a fast finish that wasn’t nearly fast enough! 4 miles 10:30/mile avg AVG HR 156
Friday on the plan: 30 minutes cardio plus drills. I am getting confident with my ActivMotion bar and bumped myself up to level two! Even as cool as it is I still broke a nice healthy sweat. This level adds even more core work and let’s just say, I am feeling it! AVG HR 95
The hubby and I spent the afternoon watching the Detroit Tigers vs. the New York Yankees. The stadium was packed! We may have finished the evening with a couple of adult Irish beverages downtown. Just call me McSkippy!
Check out this post if you missed it- I have a sweet deal for you!
Saturday on the plan: REST. Well, not really. My daughter and I drove across town to help with the Junior League Mobile food pantry. We have worked this project for a couple of years now but it was one of those mornings. Nothing went right. The site had to be moved down the street, the truck had to be unloaded by hand, and we took 30 minutes longer than usual to set up. We helped a ton of families that morning but let’s say that 48 pound bags of potatoes, cases of canned beef and cases of peanut butter provided quite the strength workout I was not expecting. AVG HR 104
Even though I felt like it was just one of those weeks, I leave next Saturday for New Orleans! It will be time to meet up with Tricia and run the Best Damn Race! So ready or not it is taper week and time to let the excitement rise!
