I don’t know about you, but I am sure ready for the start of a new month. It is no secret that I’ve been struggling with running in the summer heat however, I’ve decided I am going to learn to embrace it. I am going to find my inner bad ass again because I know she is in there. So Hello July let’s do this!
Weekly Wrap Hello July
Monday- 30 min elliptical, 60 m strength training, 10 mile bike
I am always ready to hit it hard on Mondays. Helps me get the week off to a running start. In case you missed last week’s Meatless Monday this grilled celery with blue cheese is a must try.
Tuesday-3 mile run + 1100 meter swim
Got out there early on this slightly cooler day and feeling a bit better. Slow and steady. Met a friend for an afternoon swim. Great combination.
Wednesday- 90 min strength training and running drills
My trainer was tired of hearing me whine about my running struggles, so he dragged me outside for some running drills and sprints. Man, that was ridiculously hard! I was so sore in a good way. We went over some form drills and did a little speed work. Sometimes, he tells me exactly what I need to hear.
Thursday- 4 mile run
Feeling a little better out there today and really glad that I found a water fountain mid run. Literally stuck my whole head in it!
Friday- 30 min elliptical + 1800 m swim
Swim class was the place to be today with these temps. Water felt great!
Saturday- rest day
Sunday- 4 mile run and swim on the plan for today
Trying to embrace my inner bad ass runner again. I know she is there somewhere. Planning on an early run and swim with my crew. Hello July-Let’s do this!
That’s a Wrap! Hoping this is the week I make peace with the heat. What’s your goal for the week?
