I’ve really been enjoying participating in the Weekly Wrap and connecting with lots of new like minded fitness friends. This past week began at the beach and ended at the pool. Let’s see how it went down.
Sunday-4 mile run
My daughter and I took a few days and headed to the Jersey shore for a little beach time. I got up early (for me) and set out for a beach run. I didn’t last long on the sand before my calves were screaming at me to move to more stable ground.
This was worth getting up for. There is something so serene about making the first tracks in the sand. No headphones needed today just the sound of the ocean. Now to relax & recover in my beach chair #sundayrunday #beaching #beachday #runnergirl #mrtt #31daysofskirtsports #vitaminsea #optoutside #loveyourrun #sunsandsea
Our beach trip wouldn’t be complete without a little ice cream and of course beach selfies.
Monday-Back to my plan with 30 m of elliptical and 60 min of strength training
Tuesday-5 mile 4th of July run with my MRTT group. We normally stay in our Virginia suburbs for our runs but how can you not run into DC on the 4th of July? This was a favorite and will certainly become a tradition.
Wednesday- 1000 m swim + spin class
Thinking about adding in some swim workouts yourself? Check out a few of my swim workouts for runners.
Thursday-90 min kickboxing and strength training
Made the mistake of telling my trainer I wanted some hard abs today. Be careful what you wish for! He had me doing sets of these in between boxing moves. Hurts so good.
Friday– 10 mile bike ride + 2000 m swim
If you wait for perfect conditions, you will never get anything done! Headed out for a rainy ride which ended up in the blazing sun. Finished off with my swim class for a perfect combo.
Saturday-Everyone needs a rest day! Spent the afternoon lounging by the pool reading. It was fabulously relaxing.
That’s my Weekly Wrap! Next Sunday is my next sprint Triathlon so I will be cutting back a bit this week. Hope to see you tomorrow for Meatless Monday where I will be sharing my Summer Peach Gazpacho recipe.
