Coming back after our 2 week vacation in Alaska, kind of threw me for a loop for a few days. Why does flying make you so tired when you are just sitting there? I am finally back on the right time zone and was ready to get back at it this week. Joining Wendy and Hoho for the Weekly Wrap.
Back at it
Monday- 30 min elliptical + 60 min strength training + 40 min treadmill walk
I really missed my strength training workouts while in Alaska and was happy to get back at them this week. My afternoon walk was cut short by tornado warnings so I was banished to the treadmill. Caught up on some TV shows while walking.
Tuesday- 2 mile run + physical therapy
Our morning run was cut short by a torrential rain that was not supposed to be arriving until way later. We may have ended up at breakfast and coffee. Heck why not?! Later that day, I was back at PT doing some running drills. This one was way harder than I expected and I really had to struggle to keep form.
Wednesday was a holiday for me so no working out.
Thursday-4 mile run + yoga + 60 min strength training
I had to squeeze 2 days worth of workouts into one! A crazy busy day which also included a fun lunch at a new restaurant. I was invited to a preview tasting HoneyGrow. They had all kinds of yummy customizable salads and stir fries. So good, I took one home for dinner as well. Definitely ready to fall into bed that night.
Friday-traveling to Indiana
Yup it’s already parent’s weekend and time to visit the kids. Could not wait to get there and see them. Reunited…and it feels 😊 so good.
Saturday-7 mile Run + IU Football game
So excited to wake up to cool 60 degree temps this morning. Had the best run I’ve had in months. Using the 4:1 intervals and got back up to 7 miles without any achilles pain. I am, of course, a lot slower but don’t care as long as I can get the miles in.
Finally got to attend my first tailgate! We did not have this much fun at George Washington University when I was in school. We then headed to the stadium for the game with Michigan State. #Hoosiers Super fun to do with my whole family.
Sunday-brunch with the kids and heading back home
A short but fun weekend with the kids in Indiana. Hard to say goodbye!
That’s a wrap! Glad to be back at it with my normal routine-well sort of. Pop in tomorrow to check out my tailgate inspired Meatless Monday recipe-Jalapeño popper wontons. Have a great week everyone!
