Happy Sunday! So this week it seems like summer was ready to make it’s appearance, even though technically it’s still Spring! It’s been hot and humid here this weekend. The weather reminded me why I’m not training for a Fall marathon this year – I just need a break from running in the heat! Is it really hot where you live?
Despite the heat, I had a good week of workouts (they were mainly all indoors, lol).
Monday, June 11
4 mile run.
I kicked off the week with a 4 mile run in my brand new Brooks sneakers! I missed out on buying these sneakers twice (they sold out) so I was excited to finally get them in my possession! They are special edition Brooks Launch 5 sneakers for the Rock ‘n’ Roll Marathon Series.
Tuesday, June 12
Stair Climber (10 minutes) + Body Works + Abs (45 minutes)
Another sweatfest! I did a quick warmup on the stair climber before going to class.
Wednesday, June 13
Boot Camp (60 minutes)
This class was HARD! My arms and legs were completely dead by the end of the class.
Thursday, June 14
3 mile run.
Okay, so this run was slow but at least I got it done. My mind was like “let’s run” and my legs were like “nah girl”. My legs were definitely still feeling the boot camp class from the previous night.
Friday, June 15
I haven’t have a rest day in a while so I was more than ready for one!
Saturday, June 16
3 mile run.
I wanted 5 miles but my body stopped at 3. I did a 1.5 mile walk after the run so that I could still get in some miles.
Sunday, June 17
Body Works + Abs Class (45 mins)
Always great to start off the day with a bit of strength training. I also love this shirt that I found in Target yesterday. I’m convinced it was made especially for me!
Also Happy Father’s Day to all the awesome dads out there. My mom, sister and I took my dad out for brunch and I’m still full!
Total Weekly Mileage: 10
10,000 Steps per day: Complete
Weekly Weight Loss: 2.6
Grade This Week – A
Overall I’m happy with the week, especially the strength training, but I can’t figure out why my legs felt so fatigued during my Saturday run. I had a rest day on Friday so they should have felt fine but they felt super heavy. Hopefully this issue will pass soon so I can get in some long runs before the RnR Chicago Half Marathon – it’s 5 weeks away!
I’ve gotten in at least 10,000 steps per day every day in June and I’m hoping that I can keep that streak going for the rest of the month. Having this monthly goal makes me feel super accomplished. Sure, it’s harder to get in the steps on days I don’t run, but I’m finding creative ways to get in my steps on those days (I’ll do a blog post about this at a later date).
I’m still going strong with Weight Watchers and lost 2.6 pounds this week. I’m happy with that considering I started the week with a small weight gain. So far I’ve lost almost 10 pounds since starting the program on Memorial Day. I’ve been very diligent/strict with tracking my points and getting in my daily exercise so I am glad that I’m starting to see results. I feel like I may be able to drop 20 pounds total by the end of the summer!
I’m leaving for New Orleans on Wednesday for a work conference and I’m super excited! It will be my first time visiting the city. I’ll be indoors all day for conference sessions, but I’m lookin forward to exploring the city at night. If you have any restaurant recommendations, please let me know!
Did you have a good week? Are you currently training for anything?
