Honestly, this whole week was sort of a ‘fuck it’ week. My favorite two people at work are leaving, so not only was I eating my feelings, but I also had fancy going away parties to do it. Wednesday night we had a lovely date night at the Boston Children’s Museum adults-only night. That involved adult beverages and fast food. Thursday was my 5K race, which sounds healthy, but 2 free beers + cheesy bar food = fuck it. And then Friday through Sunday was my bachelorette weekend. I didn’t log calories for Friday through Monday. Yeah, my bachelorette needed a 2 day recovery.
Run 2x per week X
Total Mileage = 3.1 miles
Avg 1350 calories/day X
Monday 8/8 – PT
Tuesday 8/9 – Standing Abs (3 sets) + Back Workout + Foam Roll – I was supposed to run today, but my toe is still bugging me from stubbing it 2 weeks ago and I want to be in the best shape for that race on Thursday.
Thursday 8/11 – 5K @ 9:29 pace – Goddamn it was hot. With the heat index, felt like over 100. There are 2 more races left in this series, both in September, so hopefully they are cooler and have some PR potential.
Avg 1350 calories/day X …. ah but so close! 1373 average calories!
Monday 8/1 – PT – Yup, that’s it, but it was long overdue.
Tuesday 8/2 – 4.3 miles @ 10:08 pace – WITH negative splits!! Seriously though, how do I run my race pace when I’m not racing?? I really don’t know how.
Wednesday 8/3 – Boot Camp + 1.4 miles @ 9:57 pace – I realized I’ve copped out of boot camp for the past few weeks. I have legitimately been busy, but it is only a half hour, so I signed up for a 5:30AM one. I also ran to it…which I will never do again. I was sweating buckets 10 minutes before anyone else even started glistening.
Thursday 8/4 – Recovery Yoga – It felt good to stretch for a full 20 minutes.
Friday 8/5 – Pre-Wedding Workout – Nowhere on this does it say if I’m supposed to repeat circuits. The pivot lunge hurt my knee, so I stopped doing that fairly quickly, but I could definitely repeat Circuit 2 and could push myself to repeat Circuit 3.
Saturday 8/6 – 8 miles @ 11:32 pace – I died around mile 6 and walked a lot from there, but the first 6 miles were great!
And another end of the week death. I was supposed to do PT, Yoga and a workout on Sunday. What did I do? Nothing. This upcoming week is my bachelorette party, so…. everything is reduced.
Monday 7/25 – Shoulder and Upper Body + Hip Opener Yoga – Hip opener was great. The other one might have been good if I had a 10 foot strap. Alas, I do not, so I skipped the first half of the video.
Tuesday 7/26 – 3 mile run [10:25 pace] – I didn’t have any pace goals for this, but I did incorporate 4 sprints. Which got me mad sweaty. I can’t wait until winter.
Wednesday 7/27 – Banish Back Fat – I actually did 2 sets of the workout moves and they were pretty good. I should go for 3 next time.
Thursday 7/28 – 2.25 mile run [9:44 pace] – I wasn’t intending to go fast, but it felt good, so I did (that’s what she said!).
Saturday 7/30 – 2.3 miles [11:49 pace] + paddle boarding – Paddle boarding was so relaxing and fun! And I didn’t fall off! I had trouble finding a good estimate for calories burned (one said 600 per hour, which seemed too high) so I put it in as canoeing, moderate effort.
Yeah I really crapped out at the end of the week. I gotta do my physical therapy next week.
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.
