My fitness plan didn't go exactly as planned, but I still got plenty of activity in over the week!
Thursday I took off, I'm not sure why I thought I would be ready to take on the world full force after the 4th of July. I don't do well with little amounts of sleep! Friday was another story, my RB and I went out for 10 miles! It took us 1:40, but that included a couple short walking breaks, a bathroom break and a pit stop at Kwik Trip for some liquids, so we were cruising while we were actually running. We were able to beat most of the heat, but it was 73 degrees when we started at 6:30 am...and it felt cool (incredibly weird for WI)! Saturday I led my work running group (we had eight people this week!), so I got back-to-back higher mileage days, which felt great to do. I would like to keep doing back-to-back days like this, with a long and medium distance run, I think it would be good in preparing my legs for the marathon in October. I took the group on a three mile loop, then a couple wanted to go more so we ended up with a total of 7 miles in 1:14, a slower pace but it felt just right for my legs. After the run I did a 30 minute "beach body" lift, yes that's what we call it at work when all you do is work your upper body.
It was painful to finish the last few reps for each body part, but I felt good after finishing! At 9:30 pm J was going to go workout, but wasn't feeling his traditional gym workout and asked if I wanted to go play tennis with him... of course! This is the first time we have played together in a few years, last time he got frustrated because he had no finesse and the ball would go flying sky high. But all of his Wimbeldon watching must have taught him something, because we were able to play a respectable game! We were sweating it out for a 1:20:00, it was so much fun and a great workout, we're hoping to do it more often! Yesterday reminded me of when I was a child, each day filled with activities... I love it!
Breakfast this morning... Iced coffee + oats with blueberries, almond milk and sugar chocolate coffee grinder from TJ's + cake pop (not pictured)
Today all I will be doing is going for a short walk and then boating, like I have been the past couple days!
