Wednesday (11,140 steps) - Beyond unmotivated. I opted to sleep in and skip my run. The last few weeks have been rough, and I determined that I would benefit from rest more than junk miles. We did go to run club though, and I ran for a few minutes with Heather. Great time at Runners Roost and I was able to give away a few entries to the Westminster trail races, thanks to my ambassadorship!

Thursday (20,420 steps) - 6 miles on schedule, and my day off didn't really do much for me. It wasn't quite as bad as Tuesday's run, but I cut this one short as well and did 5, with a few mile on the single track by the lake. I am a little sad that daylight savings is so soon, I enjoy it being lighter in the mornings and seeing the gorgeous sunrise over the lake. These were just a handful of the pictures I took during my "leisurely" stroll...
Got my oil changed during lunch at a place near my work. So much more convenient than going to the dealership.
Friday (16,999 steps) - Another much needed rest day. I did, however, get up and do a strength and pilates video. This one was ridiculously challenging, which clearly means I need to do more of these exercises. A had her VERY LAST cookie booth of the season. Her final cookie tally is over ONE THOUSAND boxes!!!
|Her art will be on display at the college for another month, then will be on display at her school for a few weeks.|
Saturday (16,382 steps) - No training run on schedule! Even though I did NOT need to be up early I was still up before 5. Womp. A and I went for a quick run by the lake so I could test out my new pack.
Sunday (34,336 steps) - That Dam Half (and 5K) - recap to come.
upper body video. Comcast showed up at 3 to test everything. 1. Turns out I really did have a second lemon for a box. 2. However, I also had a (literally) fried HDMI cable. At least they guy was super nice and didn't irritate me. Went over to Jessa's house for dinner and to watch The Walking/Talking Dead.
Monday (9,652 steps) - ZERO motivation. No wait, less than ZERO. I've been feeling abnormally fatigued lately, which I'm sure is a result of my 6 day a week high mileage training program. My legs were also STILL toast from that pilates/butt/thigh video I did on Friday. So, I did a yoga video before work instead of running.
- 129,880 steps
- 28.1 miles run
- No cross training
- 79 minutes of strength/stretching
- Hm. Actually, not much going on. I finally found a private gym that has gymnastics classes at a reasonable time for people that actually have jobs. A will be having her assessment class in a week or so and then I'll sign her up for something. She's been wanting to get back into it forever and the logistics have been troublesome.
