On Friday I mentioned being excited about a summer weekend with a run at the beach. Well, the weather was definitely “summer” in that the forecast went from sunny to random downpours both Saturday and Sunday. At the last minute Saturday morning, I decided to run by the house instead of the beach because the forecast was suddenly very different from what I had expected!
Other than that, I did run less overall last week than I have been lately. It wasn’t because of the weather, it was more because I was mentally tired (I think) from things going on at work. I’m happy that I can go with the flow of how I feel and not push myself to do more than I think I’m up for, that’s for sure!
I won’t run much this week either as I’m going away for a few days (!!) and will be leaving my running shoes home. While I will certainly take walks, likely do a yoga or pilates workout, and play tennis, I’m not big on worrying about packing running shoes to run when I travel. There’s plenty of time for running the rest of the year so I don’t need to fit it in on a trip.
Last Week’s Workouts
Monday – 25 Min Pilates Sculpt + 40 Min Walk
This was a new pilates flow from Melissa Wood Health and it was great! Keeping that bottom leg elevated was a new and interesting challenge for me. Looks easy — but it’s not easy.
Tuesday – 4 Mile Run
I didn’t feel as energized as usual but once I hit three miles, I continued to four with that last mile being my fastest. That’s usually how it happens, right? We think we aren’t energized to run and then a few miles in, you are ready to go.
Wednesday – 4 Mile Walk
I felt like a long walk this morning.
Thursday – 45 Min Walk + 23 Min Yoga Flow
Friday – 3 Mile Run + 10 Min Power Abs
Saturday – 7 Mile Run
Sunday – 22 min Super Charged Yoga/Pilates Flow + 4 Mile Walk
I may not post again until sometime next week but will likely share a few stories on Instagram. Have a great week!
