This week has been all about finding ways to get it done despite the heat and humidity. I am doing my best to have a more positive attitude about summer training. I ran much less this week and instead embraced other activities that kept me cooler. This Weekly Wrap is all about Water Water Everywhere.
Water Water Everywhere
Sunday- 5 mile run and 500 m swim
Got my butt out and up early to meet the ladies for an early run followed by a swim and breakfast. It was tough going out there for sure and boy did that swim feel amazing.
Monday- 30 m elliptical + 90 min strength training/kick boxing + afternoon easy swim
Switched up my longer strength training day this week due to the holiday on the 4th.
Tuesday- kayaking 1.5 hours + afternoon easy swim
It was ridiculously hot today so opted to hit the water again for some kayaking. I forgot how much I enjoy it and the water was so peaceful.
Wednesday- 5 mile run + 60 min strength training
Our annual Independence Day run into Georgetown had a great turnout despite the crazy heat and humidity. Even starting out at 7:30 was pretty brutal. Thankfully we ended our run at a bakery and I cooled off with an iced tea and lemonade combo. I highly recommend that post run.
Thursday- hot yoga sculpt + SUP class
Why I thought going to hot yoga in this heat was a good idea I don’t know. Loved the class and the teacher and as you can see it was quite a sweatfest. We had a group SUP class at night that was lots of fun until the thunder rolled in and we had to cut it short. Good times were had by all and we will certainly try it again soon. The water was calm as could be and super easy to balance on.
Friday- rest day
I woke up so tired today and I decided to take another rest day.
Saturday- 5.5 mile run
Oh what a difference a 20 degree temperature and humidity drop can make. Today’s run was just what I needed to get my mojo back. Now just need to make it until September. 🙂
