The One Where I'm Just Checking In

I have a very busy week this week at work because I'm trying to fit 5 days into 3. On Thursday I'll be road tripping it to Florida with my friend Shelly who is moving for grad school, so between lots of work, watching the Olympics and getting my workouts in I may not have much time to blog, but I did want to stop in and say Hi! and that I hope you all have a wonderful week!

Here is what this past weeks workouts look liked.

Week 4 (July24-29)

2.9 miles + 5 repeats

8 miles

17.5 miles


Over all I was thrilled with what I got in as far as workouts last week. Tuesday was supposed to be a cross training day that became an off day which I intended to move to Sunday, but yesterday came and went and I was exhausted so I decided to listen to my body and take some rest time. Thursday's run was really hard and I ran out of time before yoga which is why I only got 2.6 miles in, but yoga that night was totally worth it!
Saturday I was supposed to do 7 miles but I felt so good the entire run that I went for 8 instead. It was surprisingly a very easy and wonderful run, I'm sure it helped that I had the Olympics to watch while running but over all I was very pleased with that run.

Here is what this week will look like:

Week 5 (July30-Aug 5)
4.5 miles
Elliptical
BodyPump
+Yoga

I am also coming to the end of my 2 months of no Dr. Pepper and I have been doing great and feeling great!! I may indulge over the weekend on the road trip but I plan to continue this challenge starting August 6th through the end of the year because I just love how good I feel when I don't drink them. Who knows, maybe I won't even cave on the road trip ;)

Have an awesome week and GO USA!!
