I woke up Monday rested and ready to take on the day. 30 minutes on the elliptical followed by 60 minutes of strength training with my trainer. Had a quick lunch with a friend for her birthday then back home for a 30 minute bike ride.
Chilly temps and some snow squalls did not stop me from getting out for a Valentine run with my favorite runners. Did an easy 4 miles then headed to the gym for a 40 minute swim. Luckily I had lots of Soup Club yumminess to refuel with before then jumping on the bike for 90 minutes. This was mentally tough to get through and I really did not want to do the bike today.
I kind of bribed myself with the fact that I would be eating a big yummy carb filled dinner for Valentine’s Day. I thoroughly enjoyed my huge plate of veggie lasagna and lovely dinner with my son and husband.
30 minutes elliptical followed by 90 minutes of strength training and kick boxing. Wednesdays are my favorite workout and I love the combination of kickboxing and strength training. I should mention that I did whine a bit to my trainer about whether this was working. He reminded me it’s only been a little over a week. Patience is not a virtue of mine.
For a few weeks, my regular Thursday run has been replaced by a longer bike ride and elliptical. I headed to the gym and did a spin class then added on another 30 minutes to get the full 90 minutes. Finished up with a 30 minute elliptical. By the end of the day, I was really starting to feel tired and my legs were just shot. Slept well that night!
I know part of this plan is to teach me to keep going on tired legs so- back to spin class today. I had a harder time today keeping up my usual cadence. I have about a half hour break before heading to swim class. I was supposed to do another 30 minutes on the elliptical after lunch but I ran out of time.
I met up with Erika to try on #AllTheSkirts. We had a blast modeling for each other and making our video. We do love our skirts!
Celebrated the 4th Anniversary of our Moms Run This Town Group with a group run followed by breakfast. You all know how much I love my tribe and feel so blessed to have them in my life.
The good news is that my foot did not bother me at all on my run Saturday so maybe running just 2 days a week for now will help me get rid of the darn plantar fasciitus for good. So that’s my Weekly Wrap! For now I will just keep on sweating!
