Ok – I am not saying this is going to be an every day occurrence but here I am – 2 days in a row! Woohoo… I’ll try my best to keep the momentum going, and keep posting.
So today is the 1st day I’ve run since my half marathon last Sunday. I had to run because I couldn’t break my #JustDoItSunday streak with Nike. So today marked 41 Sundays in a row that I have run at least 3.1 miles – most Sundays it has been more than that.
Hard to believe that in just another 11 Sundays I will have run EVERY SINGLE SUNDAY for an ENTIRE year!!! Yes I typed that in caps because I am screaming!! This is huge! This is major! This is AHHMazBalls!!
Let’s get to the nitty gritty – how did my foot/heel/ankle/ brokenness hold up – well let’s just say I was more than a minute per mile faster than my previous indoor run! Say what?? Umm yeah – a whole minute faster. So I guess its fair to say that my brokenness held up just fine…. I think taking a week off from running probably really helped; I’ve only been spinning, lifting and boxing over this last week. That full week off from running probably gave my injury a much needed rest.
I only ran 3.68 – originally I was going to shoot for 9.3 – I know that’s a weird number; but I am a part of a team for running 2017 miles in 2017 and my girl asked me to get 9.29 miles today to bring us to 1800 miles for the year. As much as I wanted to do that and knock it out of the park – I also didn’t want to push it and have a set back. So even though in my heart I wanted to keep running, I pulled myself back and finished happily with only completing 3.68 miles.
Ok so here is my plan for the week. Oh wait before I get to that – I would like to point out that I dropped 1.7lbs this week! Another woohoo for me!! I’ll keep plugging along. In another few weeks or so I will get my visceral fat checked again. I really need to get a scale at home for checking it. Do any of you have the Omiron scale that checks visceral fat? If so drop me a line about what you think about it. I would love some inside info on it before buying or asking my husband to buy it for me.
Ok now back to my workouts for the week. I am a part of the #LoriHarderTribe – so I’ve been trying to follow her September workout calendar; I’ve also been mixing in Katie Hill workouts; both are killer and have had me so sore – but in a good way. Anyway – I digress – here is my plan for this week:
Monday – run 3-5 miles (we’ll see how I am feeling); Lori Harder workout 2
Tuesday – boxing at UFC
Wednesday – RPM; Lori Harder workout 3
Thursday – MaTRX (combo kickboxing & TRX class) at UFC
Friday – Run 3-5 miles; Lori Harder workout 3
Saturday – Rest
Sunday – #JustDoItSunday 5k
Ok there is my plan….. help me stick to it! Check up on me! Call me out!
I’ll be back to post again and keep y’all update – I know you will be waiting with bated breath – I promise not to disappoint. In the mean time while you are waiting on my next post – go out and move something! Go for a run or a walk, enjoy the last days of summer that we are having here in the north east.
