Welcome to week 3 of Motivation Monday!
I didn’t get around to picking a Pinspired workout last week, but I really like that idea, so I’m not shelving it yet. I just didn’t have much time to spare last week. I won’t really this week, either, but I’m going to throw something extra in anyway.
On with the report.
Monday – Lilly had swimming lessons last week (and this week), so we headed there after I finished up last week’s Motivation post. I’m having a difficult time remembering exactly what I did that day lol. I know I ran my 3 miles, but I cannot seem to remember at what time of the day.. Hmm.. At any rate, I got it done.
Tuesday – Jake got home a little earlier than normal, so he did me a HUGE favor, and took Lilly to the park so I could run without distraction. I took the opportunity to get a 5 mile day out of the way.
Wednesday – After swimming, my step-mom treated us to lunch, and took Lilly to Build-A-Bear, and home with her to have a sleepover. I took it as a sign, and got my second 5 mile day taken care of (plus, hopefully burned off that Chik-Fil-A lol).
Thursday – I ran 1.5 in the morning before I met Lilly at the pool. I was supposed to have a pool day with friends, but it was raining/lightning(ing?) all day, so we cancelled. I felt bad about splitting up a shorter run, so I ran another 2.5 in the evening (total 4 for the day).
Friday – I was supposed to have a pool day (again) but when we got to the car to go to swim lessons, I found we had been vandalized, and our back window had been shattered out. I spent the day vacuuming glass out of the car and street with the shop-vac instead. Fun. It was such a bummer day, and I was pretty sore by Friday, so I took a rest day.
Saturday – I ran 2 miles in the morning while Lilly was playing with neighbors and Jake was cleaning out the garage. I had plans for a little while in the afternoon, and ran another 2 miles later in the day. I don’t know why I split it up that day, but I ended up with an extra mile (4 for the day).
Sunday – I had more than completed my promised mileage, so I took another rest day.
Total Mileage for the week – 21 (Yay me!)
I just did a weigh in and am at 124 lbs. Woo.. Kind of.
This week’s plan:
This week I am going to add one more 5 mile day for a total of 3, with two 3 mile days. One of the 5 mile days I am going to walk (quickly) on a steep incline. I’m also going to add 3 ab days. I have an “ab-roller” that I actually really like, so I’ll just use that. I’m going to add some kind of stretch routine in there somewhere too. Maybe yoga or something. My quads have been killing me after the longer runs.
What is your workout plan for the week?
