Happy Sunday! This was another week that went by so fast. Work was super busy, including a quick 25 hour trip to Rochester, NY. It also seems like this has been such a heavy week. The news has been especially depressing and infuriating, and I have a feeling next week will not be much better. Because of this, I feel like we all need something positive. Funny memes give me a nice break from reality, so I thought I’d share two funny ones from this week.
Hope those two memes provided a smile 🙂 Now moving on to my training this week….
It was another easy week of training. I’m still battling my hip issue so I haven’t been working out as hard as I usually do. Nevertheless, it was still a good week. Let’s discuss
Monday, September 24
PT exercises (30 minutes).
Wanted to start the week off on the right foot with a lot of PT exercises to rehab this cranky hip!
Tuesday, September 25
PT exercises (30 mins) + HIIT Spinning Class (30 mins).
It rained literally all day so I was all about the indoor workout.
Wednesday, September 26
Strength Training (30 mins) + 1 mile walk.
I worked a half day and then headed to the airport for my flight to Rochester. When I got to my hotel around 4pm, I responded to a few work emails and then hit up the hotel gym for a quick strength workout. Don’t you just love it when hotels have nice gyms? I was super impressed with all the free weights and cardio equipment.
Thursday, September 27
My intention was to get in a quick workout in the morning, but unfortunately I woke up with a sinus headache. Instead I stayed in my room and did some extra prep for my presentation. I fly home in the afternoon.
Friday, September 28
PT exercises (30 minutes).
Woke up with another sinus headache 🙁 Thankfully it was my planned rest day so I just did my PT exercises.
Saturday, September 29
7 mile run.
Well I was able to run 2 more miles than last week, so that’s good. I have a half marathon in 3 weeks so this should have been an 11 mile run but I am just doing what I can at this point. The hip pain was not nearly as intense as last week, so I was thankful for that. I took walk breaks after every mile and that really seemed to help so I’ll continue that going forward.
After the run, I did a lot of stretching and foam rolling and topped that off with an epsom salt bath.
Sunday, September 30
Strength Training (45 mins) + Spinning (60 mins).
Got back to my double workout Sundays. Neither workout aggravated my hip so I was thrilled about that.
During spinning I kept thinking about a pumpkin spice latte. For some reason I was craving it so I picked up one after the class.
Total Weekly Mileage: 7 miles
Summary: 1 run, 2 spinning classes, 2 Strength Training workouts, 1 Walk
Grade This Week – B+
One thing that was lacking this week was yoga so I definitely need to make sure I fit that in next week somehow. I don’t know it I continue not running during the week. I’m not sure if that’s doing more harm than good? Maybe I can try to do some short runs during the week, I’ll see how that feels.
I’ve been off track when it comes to eating and my daily activities so I decided tomorrow is a great day to get back on track. It’s Monday and the start of a new month so I took that as a sign, lol. I’m still following the WW plan but I could be better about tracking my food, so I’ll make a point of that next week. I’m also going to meal prep some lunches for next week as well. I also joined a StepBet group this morning so that will help to keep my accountable with daily activities throughout the week.
That’s it for this week – thanks for reading!
How was your week? Did you have crazy Fall weather this week?
