Tuesday 6/28 – 4 mile run [10:57 pace] – Much better than my 12 min pace on 6 miles the other day, but I missed my sister.
Wednesday 6/29 – PT + Boot Camp
Friday 7/1 – 3 mile run [10:57 pace] + Rock Climbing – My body is SO sore from boot camp that every step of that run was a struggle. Rock climbing was fun, but scary. I didn’t go up all the way because I didn’t like falling. I think I like bouldering more than top-roping.
Sunday 7/3 – Arm Sculpting Challenge + 4 mile run [10:48 pace] – Arm challenge starts off easy. Running is never easy. It was so fucking hot out.
I think I’ve decided to focus on eating healthy and working out, and not focus on the scale. For the whole month of July. Ahhh. And just trust that my healthier habits will create the changes I want to see in my body, and accept that those changes might not change the scale.
Monday 6/20 – PT + Boot Camp
Tuesday 6/21 – PT + Yoga – I was planning on running today, but I woke up to thunderstorms. I think I found the 1 type of weather I won’t run in.
Thursday 6/23 – 2.26 mile run [10:55 pace] + Post Run Yoga + Post Run Cool Down– That cool down video is 7 minutes long, and it’s the best (and quickest) yoga video I’ve done. It hits all the right spots. Unfortunately, she only ever posted 2 videos to YouTube – that one and a 4 minute pre-run warm up.
Saturday 6/25 – 6 mile run [11:59 pace] … with my little sister! – She’s visiting looking at colleges, and she’s a pole vaulter, so she’s a sprinter. When I told her we’d be doing 12 minute miles, she looked at me with pity. Then when I made her do 6 very hilly miles (she only runs on a track), she was not so mad about the slow pace. haha
One less yoga, because FH and I have a rock climbing date planned on Friday, so that takes the place of a workout.
No, but surprisingly close. My average was 1450 calories per day. And that was with a visit from the future inlaws that included a few dinners out, a brewery tour, and a cidery tour.
Weight = 134 lbs
Tuesday 6/14 – 2 mile run [15:00 min/mi pace] – I didn’t have time in the morning, so I tried to run with the dog after work. It worked for ~0.5 miles…progress?
Thursday 6/16 – 5K in 27:56 [9:00 min/mi pace] – It was hotter out this time, and my friend who I usually use as a pacer ran waaaay too fast (26:31), so this was pretty good for having to pace myself. At some point I REALLY need to stretch and PT. I’m a broken record. This is why I can’t have nice runs.
Saturday 6/18 – Pre-Run Yoga + 5 miles [11:23 pace] – Hey, I finally stretched! Per usual, I found myself thinking, “Hey, I bet if I did this every day, I’d have way fewer injuries…hmmm.” Also, high five me on 5 miles – farthest distance in quite awhile.
Yoga 3x – I’m not going to force myself to do an hour of yoga. BUT, I want to do it more regularly in smaller intervals. So, even 15 minute videos on 3 days would be great.
I know I’m slacking in the blog-writing arena. Sometimes living life is more important than documenting it. That sounded super uppity and self-important. It just means I’ve been busy.
As for all the shit that’s happening in the world right now, I don’t even know what to say. I just feel that it would be insensitive to not at least acknowledge the Orlando shootings, how horrific and terrible for the victims, the families, and the country. Love is Love. Love wins. I hope the world can find justice and peace, and that those are not mutually exclusive.
Having said that, I am going to continue as I normally would.

Monday 6/6 – Fit Body Boot Camp – I really liked this. It was hard, I was sweating, but it was only 30 minutes. I wish it were a little cheaper, since it’s only 30 minutes, but whaddya gonna do. Also, they were filming my class for a Yelp! commercial and asked me for a testimonial afterwards. I’m gonna be internet famous! And SO SWEATY.
Tuesday 6/7 – 2.8 mile run [10:13 pace] – Will running ever be easy? You would think after doing it consistently since March, it would feel better, but no.
Wednesday 6/8 – 2.2 mile run [11:17 pace] – Everything is tight and everything hurts and I’m supposed to do 5 miles on Friday…
Friday 6/10 – PT and Yoga – I’m supposed to do a 5 miler today, but I’ve been wearing my knee brace for the last 2 days because I tweaked it again, stretching it after Wednesday’s run. I really have to stop attempting pigeon pose. I’m not actually training for anything, so there’s no point in doing 5 miles and making it worse. I spent that hour rehabbing.

Taking out boot camp this week because I just flew back from Phoenix on the red eye. Then the future in-laws are in town Friday through Sunday. If I get in the 3 runs with the jet lag, cleaning and entertaining I have to deal with, it’ll be a miracle.
I do have another race in the 5K summer series, but with my knee buggin, IDK if I will do as well as I have been.
