Weekly Run Down Back To School
Monday- 30 min Peloton + 60 min strength training + 2 mile power walk
Knowing I would be traveling this week, I made sure to hit it hard Monday. We had another heat wave this week but that did not stop us from getting in a nice 2 mile power walk. We have been planning our walks around iced tea stops and juice bars as incentives to get out there.
Tuesday- 30 min Peloton cycle
I had an early flight to Indianapolis with son so had to miss my morning run. Got in a quick bike ride before heading to the airport. We hit the campus Target to stock up for the semester and took a walk around campus of Indiana University.
Wednesday- move in day
I am going to count moving into his fraternity house as cardio and strength training. It was an exhausting day with 2 more visits to Target for things we needed for the room. Not sure how I feel about the whole fraternity house living situation.
Thursday- short 2.5 mile run/walk + travel home
Woke up to slightly cooler temps so I took advantage of a quick run/walk through campus. My legs were tired from all the moving the day before and needed a few walk breaks. Always feels good to move even if it was a short one. Had a nice brunch with my son before hugging me one last time and heading to the airport. I did not cry until he walked away this time so that’s an improvement.
Friday- 45 min Peloton
Slept in a bit on this rainy morning but happy to be back in my own bed. Hit up a 45 min 80’s rock Peloton class with my favorite instructor. Was kind of tired all day.
Saturday- rest day easy 2 mile walk
Happy to sleep in a bit this morning again. A rest day for me but I did take an easy 2 mile walk to stay in my run bet game. I plan to host another one mid September if you’d like to join me.
Sunday- Bike + Run Brick on the plan
Planning a bike run brick today in preparation for my upcoming Stand Up paddle board triathlon in 3 weeks. If you missed my post about brick workouts earlier this week and how to use them to mix up your summer running find it here.
