It’s certainly felt like summer for weeks now but now that school is over it is officially summer. Our public schools end really late here in Virginia and my son just finished 2 days ago. It’s funny how when the kids are little I used to dread of the end of school, now I wish we had more time off to just hang out together. Anyway! I am joining Tricia, Hoho and Zenaida for the Weekly Wrap Hello Summer. It’s been fun to see what everyone else is doing for their weekly workout and to keep accountable for mine as well. Let’s see how this week went down.
Weekly Wrap Hello Summer
M-30 min elliptical, 60 min strength training.
Missed by afternoon bike ride due to thunder storms.
Tue-4 mile run(walk) + 30 min swim.
Had such a tough run and had to walk on a route that I run all the time. It just was not my day. It was hot and I was just not feeling it. It felt great to get into the pool post run but struggled a bit there too. Need to rethink some of my fueling and hydration habits. I was all smiles pre run but really not a good one at all.
Fun dinner with my Girls on The Run Coaches at a local Indian restaurant. We were chit chatting so much we forgot a group photo. I did have the most yummy, spicy Tandori cauliflower. You can almost see it sizzling in the photo. Oh and who does not love to splurge on all the amazing Naan bread?
Wed-90 min kickboxing and weights
Felt much better and was glad to sweat it out. Feels good to punch things and not worry they will punch they back 🙂
Thur-45 min bike + 3 mile run
I started a little earlier and was feeling much better on the brick today. Still slower than I’d like to be on the post bike run but I am doing it. My next tri race is in 3 weeks so I plan to get in a few more bricks before then. Played around with my Go Pro and my tips from Deb and got some fun photos.
Took my son up to summer camp in the mountains of Maryland where he will be for 7 weeks. He does not like it when I put his photo on my blog but hey what he doesn’t know won’t hurt him right! I managed one quick photo as we dropped him off. Already miss him.
Sat- Hot Yoga
My group bike ride was cancelled and I woke up feeling like I needed to do something different. Felt amazing to get back to my mat after so many weeks. I do love hot yoga class but it is the first thing to go when I have too much else going on. Our instructor offered this intention to us: “It’s not who you think you are that holds you back, it’s what you think you are not”. So true! I am often thinking things like, “I am not a fast enough runner” or “I am not a fast triathlete” to name a few. Gave me a lot to think about for sure.
And that’s my Weekly Wrap Hello Summer! Hope to see you tomorrow for Meatless Monday.
