Happy Sunday! WHAT.A.WEEK! Honestly I didn’t know if I was coming or going most days this week. Work was really, really crazy cause I’m simultaneously juggling about 5 projects. At least 2 of these projects should wrap up in the next few weeks so that’s keeping me sane at the moment.
I was mentally drained every day this week which affected my workouts. Not every week can be fantastic and that’s okay. I still got in my long run on Saturday which was the most important workout for me this week.
Here’s how my workouts went this week:
Monday, March 11
Spinning (45 minutes) + core work.
Daylight Savings hit me HARD on Monday. I felt like a zombie all day but luckily I was still able to get in a workout. I enjoyed a 30 min hip hop spin class + a 15 minute Groove spin class.
Tuesday, March 12
3 mile run + strength training (30 minutes).
I didn’t feel like running so I decided to do something different for this workout. My workout was run 1 mile, 10 mins of core, run 1 mile, 10 mins of arms/shoulders, run 1 mile and then 10 mins of legs/glutes. I really liked breaking up the workout like this and will probably do it again.
Wednesday, March 13
Rest Day. By Wednesday I was totally mentally drained. The best I could do was order Chinese food for dinner and drink a glass of wine. I needed a break.
Also, I survived the Facebook and Instagram outage of 2019 🙂
Thursday, March 14
3 mile run.
The weather was beautiful so I was able to get in an outside run after work.
Friday, March 15
Another Rest Day.
Saturday, March 16
8 mile run + core work.
I ran 5 miles before the Harbor Point Shamrock Stroll 5K for a total of 8 miles for the day. The race was more of a fun run (not timed) and it was okay but I probably wouldn’t do it again next year.
Sunday, March 17
Spinning (60 minutes) + core work.
It was nice to end the week with a good spin class.
Total Weekly Mileage: 14 miles
Summary: 3 runs, 3 spinning classes and 1 strength training workout
Grade This Week – B
I usually take 1 rest day per week but this week I needed to take an extra rest day. I wasn’t sore or anything but just mentally I needed a break. I’m hoping that this week will be a little bit better. I had good amount of downtime over the weekend so I got some reading done and started watching season 3 of Queer Eye on Netflix. Spoiler alert – this season is so good!
Totally unrelated, but I saw this post on Instagram earlier in the week and I really liked it.
I feel like this is a good way to think about food and nutrition. We don’t have to be perfect, but just good 80% of the time.
That’s it for this week and I’m praying for a less crazy week ahead!
Did you have a good week?
