Happy Friday!!! I hope you had a great week. Ours was busy! And fun. We spent time with friends, checked off a few items on our summer bucket list and ran the air conditioning more than usual. It was hot this week! And I got my sweat on!
Friday – Group Power. One of our local Y’s is just starting the April release, so it’s the routine I’ve been doing for over 3 months. This was the class I went to. I really loaded up my bar and boy did I feel it! It was definitely a workout!!
Saturday – My legs were feeling the effect of the previous day’s heavy lifting. But I cranked out 6 miles and helped one of my MRTT girls push her pace (10:10 min/mile). Later that day the whole family headed up to one of our many gorgeous parks and went for a nature walk.
We hiked 2.25 miles then let the girls play on the natural playscape and go creeking. It was a lot of fun!
Sunday I took a much needed rest.
Monday – Group Power. The first day of the July release (for me). It was a new routine so weights were a bit of a guessing game. I think I’m going to like this new routine!
Tuesday – Cupcake had an appointment, so I dropped her off and took Pumpkin for a ride. In the hot sun. Not a cloud in the sky. It was a tough 3 miles, especially pushing that stroller up some hills! (10:02 min/mile) On tired legs from the previous day’s workout.
Wednesday – CSI (cardio, strength, intervals). So. Much. Plyo. There was a whole lot of jumping going on. And after jumping we worked legs. My legs got no rest! And then I ran 3 miles on the trail.
Thursday – I started out on the treadmill and only made it 1 mile (9:37 min/mile) due to some ankle pain. So I hit the weights instead. Luckily I got my 40 minutes of strength training in before the weightroom was overtaken by a dozen baseball players.
It was a good week. I’m feeling stronger and even though I ran slower than usual I think it was needed. I’m not training for anything right now, so I’m just running for the love of running.
