After last week’s Spring Break shenanigans, I was grateful for a slightly lighter schedule this week.
- Cardio: 3 miles, running + 1.67 miles, walking
So no hike this weekend, but that’s ok. Instead, I did some running, as directed by RunSmartOnline, and a walking cool down.
The boys made their way home after their fun trip in Orlando.
In the afternoon, I had a Yelp Event: Women Run Jacksonville. It was a celebration of incredible women-owned businesses in the area, so part market, part tasting, part incredible venue, all amazing. There were so many goodies, and cool products and services. I was in love with the mimosa wall, and my new tote bag.
- Cardio: 4.29 miles, running + 2.37 miles, walking
- Cross Train: RunSmart Official BaseSix Day 1
Happy Monday! We are all back to the grind (and not all of us are happy about it). Is it just me, or is it even harder to get out of bed when it’s dark?
A little bit of running followed by a cross training session full of all kind of balance moves (my feet and ankles were burning!) and planks and other hideous things. Of course, it all felt good after the fact.
- Cardio: 4.54 miles, walking
Every day is a good day to get outside. It’s even better when you can grow a tree.
- Cardio: 6 miles, running + 2.69 miles, walking
Are you loving how we go from tights and long sleeves, to just long sleeves to tank and shorts just over the course of a few days. It’s ridiculous. Anyway, it was an ok run.
The majority of my night was spent on an Arts call. They always run pretty long, and I was absolutely ready for bed after.
- Cardio: 3.19 miles, walking + elliptical, 35 minutes
Per RunSmart, I spent some time on the elliptical. And hated every second. I don’t know why it’s so awkward.
In the evening, I took part in a goodr flamboyance video call. While I don’t usually love video chats, this was great with music and games and lots of high energy!
- Cardio: 5.00 miles, running + 2.23 miles, walking
TGIF! I was on my own today, so I just headed on out to do my thing. I misread my plan and did five instead of four. Whoops.
Later, we had to take A to his campout. It’s been a while since he went camping with the Scouts, so I was glad for him.
Cardio: 3 miles, running + .69 miles, walking
A quick and early run.
As soon as I got home, I had to clean up to take A to work at a karate belt test (and I had to get some photos and content).
And then I brought him to his Scouts campout and service project. He hasn’t been camping in a while, so I’m glad he had the chance. We ended up staying through dinner and dessert, and really having a nice time.
Goal-getting + Thoughts
Although things are definitely busy with deadlines and events, I felt a little more breathing room this week. I am definitely jonesing for another few days o exploring things in my immediate area, and may have he opportunity to do so in a couple of weeks.
My new training plan is… something. It’s a little more intense than what I’m used to doing on my own, butt that’s ok. Nothing good ever happens in the comfort zone, right? I’m not sure I set the most realistic goal, but go big or go home.
This week, A has a “digital learning day” where he doesn’t have to go to school. I have a dinner event, will try a new book club, and am entered in a Bocce tournament. Will I have time to make team shirts? Fingers crossed.
How was your week in training? Do you have anything fun on the calendar?
