Time for another Weekly Wrap with Hoho and Wendy! This week was all about “showing up” for me. Starting to adapt to heat a bit more and accepting that it is going to be hotter. I am going to go slower and shorter and maybe need some more walk breaks. I am accepting that and I will just keep “showing up” for my runs.
Weekly Wrap Just Show Up
Monday-30 min elliptical + 60 m strength training + 2 mile walk
I was feeling full after dinner and did not just want to sit around. I could not convince my hubs to come with so solo evening walk it was. All great until the mosquitos feasted on me :).
Tuesday 5.5 mile run
Another hot and humid day out there. Had to take a few walk breaks but I managed to finish with a smile on my face. Just show up and get it done.
Wednesday- 30 min elliptical + 90 min strength training/kick boxing + 2 mile walk w friends
Finishing a sweaty gym day with some fun ball pikes. I had to do them a few times to get a good enough photo and my wrists were killing. Ha ha.
Thursday- 4.5 mile run + short swim
The heat and some calf tightness not a great combination. Just show up is my motto of the week and the summer.
Friday- Master swim class 1 hour
A gorgeous day to be in the pool. Tough class today! Trying to remember how to do backstroke for my cool down without bumping into anyone or anything.
Saturday- 7 mile run
The lower humidity and my just keep showing up attitude paid off! Finally, had a good run and built back my confidence for Chicago RnR next Weekend. I was seriously doubting my ability to be able to do the 5K and 10K until today. Running will do that to you huh!?
Sunday- on the plan 20 mile bike ride
I am happy to report that I am finally adapting to running in the heat. Just keep showing up! How was your week?
