Happy Monday all!!!
I hope everyone is having a Marvelous Monday!
Last week was a nice recovery week from back to back racing weekends. The knee held up amazing well both weekends of racing and I am so thankful!
Cortizone shots are the bomb diggidy-for sure!!! I know I can’t live off these but for the sake if running and racing and enduring less pain…I will take as many as the Dr allows (up to 3 or 4 a year)
In looking at my activity last week, I did pretty well.
-Workout wise, I worked out every day I was supposed to with the exception of Friday yoga because my son was out of school and I couldn’t swing it.
-Eating wise, I am getting better at fighting off the sweet tooth, binge snacking and overall eating better. I can notice the changes in the way my clothes are fitting and my overall well being feeling.
#MoveItMonday with a 10 minute ab burning workout from @grokkerinc. Who knew your abs could hurt so much in 10 min-wowser!
Followed by some deep tissue foam rolling-hurt so good!
Morning workout complete with another @grokkerinc video with @kuschfit. 30 min of cardio and strength training and perfect combination!!
Another @teamlunachixdc Wednesday track workout complete!
2 lap warm up followed by dynamic stretches.
The workout today consisted of 4 1000s (2 1/2 times around the track). Distances over 800 tend to be really difficult for me on the track. I was so glad one of the Luna chix -Julie was there to be my pacer and pusher today! We ended up pushing each other past our comfort zones which was perfect.
The goal was to improve your pace each round. Julie and I were the faster runners so we had no one to give us our final 1000 times so my times are my 400/800 split times.
I did pretty well.
400: 1:50 800: 3:17
400: 1:51 800: 3:19
Round 4: We pushed it hard!
400: 1:44 800:3:12
Now I know what all the hype is about Barre!!
3rd workout with @kuschfit and @grokkerinc-loving both.
This Barre workout is intense!
Lots of lengthening and core tightness. My glutes are on FIYAH!!
Beautiful day for a visit to the pumpkin patch for my daughter’s field trip:
Funday Friday walking with my my son enjoying the weather, the sites and the leaves.
Celebrated my dad’s bday with a family cookout at my parent’s house. Happy Birthday daddy!
Soccer with my son.
He played 2 games today and played well.
3 goals, 2 assists
He played goalie for a bit-had 2 saves and 2 goals scored on him.
He is loving the team and the game and I love it!
Nice early evening run-the temperature was perfect (as long as the sun was up!)
Nice scenery with leaves, streams and deer.
5 mile complete with the last mile consisting of .5 miles of hill sprints and .5 miles with the kiddies.
Great way to finish a run!
Football and a brunch with my football family. I over indulged on the bottomless mimosas….but I had a good time overall.
Overall not a bad week! Looking forward to another good week.
