Happy Sunday! I hope that everyone had a great week. Can you believe that it’s the last day of March? That means 1/4 of the year is already over. I’m not sure where the time goes!
It was another busy week for me as I was working out of our Eagan, Minnesota office for 3 days. I also took next week off so I had to work pretty late on Friday to make sure I finished up a few things for multiple projects. Let’s just say, I’m looking forward to the time off!
Here’s how my workouts went this week:
Monday, March 25
Treadmill, Stationary Bike and Elliptical (10 minutes each) + Weights (15 minutes).
I utilized the hotel gym for a morning workout. The gym was small but had everything that I needed to get in a good workout.
Tuesday, March 26
3 mile walk.
I didn’t sleep well Monday night so I didn’t get in a workout before work. Luckily it was still light outside when I left work so I went for a 3 mile walk around the area near the hotel.
Wednesday, March 27
Between another restless night and flying back home, this turned out to be an unexpected rest day. I didn’t get home until late in the evening and I was too tired to do anything. Luckily while I was waiting in the airport I did get to read some more of ‘Race Everything’ by Bart Yasso.
Thursday, March 28
Spinning (30 minutes) + 3 mile run.
I was happy to be back home for this workout!
Friday, March 29
Saturday, March 30
4 mile run.
Since my birthday is Monday, the ladies in my run crew surprised me with a birthday tiara and “medal”. They also all wore party hats for the photo. I really don’t make a big deal around my birthday so I was really shocked – it was so nice of them!
Sunday, March 31
Spinning (60 minutes).
Today I hit another Peloton milestone – 75 spinning cycling classes!! It was a fun ride 🙂
Total Weekly Mileage: 7 miles
Summary: 2 runs, 3 spinning classes and 1 strength training workouts
Grade This Week – B+
This wasn’t the most active week but that’s okay (pretty low mileage) but that’s because I started to have that uncomfortable feeling in my left foot again. I guess you never really “get rid” of PF. The good thing is that it’s feeling much better now than it did earlier in the week. I want to make sure that I can get through my race next Saturday pain free so I have no problem falling back on the running this week and next week.
I ended the month with 56 miles. I was planning on running another 4 miles today to hit 60 miles for the month but decided to rest my foot, which I think was the best decision (plus I’m planning on running tomorrow).
This morning I tried out a new church in my town and I have to say that it was a great first impression! The members were warm and welcoming and the vibe was just very positive. They also do a lot of work in the community as well which is a huge plus in my book. I’m going to continue to keep going to make sure it’s a good fit.
This evening I found out that I won a giveaway on Instagram – $50 bucks worth of pizza – score! This will help when I go into a pizza coma after Lent is over, lol.
That’s it! I hope you had a great week 🙂
