Happy Friday!!! This was the first full week of school for my big kid and my little one had a few half days. And I think I can get used to this new routine!
Friday I headed to the Y for Group Power. I was tired from previous days’ workouts, but I pushed through and got my lift on. My legs were quite worn out in the end!
Saturday I met up with my MRTT girls for our long run. I haven’t run more than 5 or 6 miles since the She Power Half Marathon in June, but my girl Lindsay had 8 on her agenda, so I tagged along. It was crazy humid outside, which made it hard to breathe. It was definitely a rough run (10:04 min/mile).
Sunday was a rest day.
Monday I would normally go to Group Power, but Pumpkin had her preschool screening, so I squeezed in a T25 video between getting Cupcake on the bus and taking Pumpkin to school.
Tuesday I went for an afternoon run while Cupcake was at an appointment. Pumpkin stayed home with daddy, so I was able to run stroller free. But not rain free. Most of the 4 (8:49 min/mile) miles was run in the rain, particularly mile 2. It was hitting me right in the face. But the cooler temperatures that came with the rain were very welcome!
Wednesday I headed to CSI (Cardio Strength Intervals) after dropping Pumpkin off for her first day of preschool. All the legs. It was a great workout. But I somehow managed to run 4 trail miles later that evening. There was lots of mud after 4 days of rain and we had a great time. We were also having some fun with a Wacky Wednesday theme and got a little funky with our outfits.
Thursday I joined my girl, Lindsay again for a morning run and MRTT chapter leader meeting. She was pushing the double stroller through the very hilly neighborhood, so we took it at a nice easy pace. It was a great social run and just what my sore muscles needed.
This weekend I have big plans. We have our MRTT Summer Virtual race on Saturday and on Sunday I’m going to do my first triathlon!!! I signed up a bit on a whim and I’m super excited, but also super nervous. I’ve been wanting to do a tri, but wasn’t sure I was ready. My swimming still needs some work. Well, this isn’t a swimming tri. It’s a paddle tri! So I’ll be kayaking, running and biking. I made sure to get some kayaking practice in the last time we were at the lake and I think I can handle this. I’ve got a few other friends participating with me, so I’m looking forward to cheering each other on. I’ll be sure to give you the recap next week!
