I always feel like October starts off the crazy busy fall schedule for me and this year is no different. Joining in on the weekly wrap and saying Hello October with a quick snapshot of my week.
Monday- early strength training 60 min. + Empty Bowls charity event
Got in a quick strength training session. Legs were still quite tired from the Rock The Creek Relay the day before. Had the opportunity to attend a unique charity event to benefit the National Capital Area Food Bank. A group of local students and artists created and donated ceramic bowls for the event. Attendees then choose a bowl and have it filled with soup from local restaurants who also donated their food. A creative way to get the community involved in an important fund raising initiative.
Tuesday- 4 mile run
So wanted to skip this run and just go back to sleep. Sometimes the race day tiredness hits me 2 days later. This run had a lot of walking breaks but hey every step counts right?
Wednesday- 2 mile walk + 90 min strength training and boxing
Celebrating #MeanGirlsDay with an early morning power walk #OnWednesdaysWeWearPink.
Thursday- 4 mile run
Hello October where are you? Today’s temps hit almost 90 degrees. What is up with that? So ready for those cooler fall temps we hear are supposed to arrive right about now. We did get a “cool” photo though.
Friday- rest day
Took the day off and hung out with my son who is home for fall break this weekend. This mama is happy. Enjoyed a yummy pizza for dinner. I swear carbs are my sole mate and I am convinced that is why I had a much better run the next morning.
Saturday- 8 mile run
Went back to doing some shorter intervals and finally had a much needed better run. Was it the company, or the shorter intervals or maybe just the pizza? I am not sure but I’ll take it!
Sunday- hot yoga on the plan
Perfect post run stretch that leaves me feeling energized.
