Welcome to another week of the Weekly Wrap with Tricia and Hoho. I am loving linking up each week with like minded fitness friends to recap our training and encourage each other. We all have them. Those crazy busy, how am I going to get it all done weeks. Yup, I had one of those this week. Here’s a little peek into what made my week so crazy busy.
Weekly Wrap Crazy Busy
This Tuesday, I am lacing up my sneakers to coach my 8th season of Girls on The Run. Most of you know how passionate I am about coaching as I have written about my experience with the program numerous times. Since I am also the liason for the program, I am responsible for the administrative part as well. This part, I am not so passionate about. We have a record number of 68 girls signed up! I thankfully have the best friends who have stepped in to help volunteer coach. We are going to need all the hands on we can get.
I have been inundated with emails from parents with requests and questions. My patience is wearing a little thin for that but I know once we get going that aspect will die down significantly. Supplies are all ready and we set to start our program on Tuesday.
Short recap of my week of training:
Sunday – 4 mile hill run
We realized that our Ragnar Napa Valley race is quickly approaching and opted to tackle some crazy hills.
Monday- 1 mile treadmill run + 60 min strength training
Tuesday- 6 mile run with MRTT friends
Our little heat wave made my runs a little more challenging again but got it done. √
Wednesday- 1 mile treadmill run + 90 m kickboxing and weights.
I got a new toy to add to my home gym and kickboxing routine. Punching things feels good every once in a while especially when you know they will not punch you back.
Thursday- 4 mile run
Fit in a quick 4 miles before heading over to services at our temple to celebrate Rosh Hashanah. Came home and cooked some veggie dishes to bring over to my parents’ house. Had a really nice dinner with them and my extended family.
Friday- hot yoga 1 hour
Went to my favorite hot yoga class at Core Power. Small group allowed me to get a lot of extra attention on some poses. I always feel amazing when I leave.
Saturday- rest day
Made soup for our soup club which is starting back Sunday. Who knew it would be this hot? I went with a roasted red pepper and corn chowder.
Sunday- 10K race
First 10K in a long time! More details to follow.
Crazy Busy week indeed for me. How was your week? Anyone racing?
