July Recap

Miles Planned/Actual:  ??/88.  hmm. Lesson learned. I skipped tracking planning one week on the blog. Missed some long runs. Going to start actually tracking in my planner and not just on the blog (yes, that is all I do to track).

Cross Training Planned/Actual: ??/11.  Loving Pilates and TRX.  Didn’t have time for Yoga but hope to get a few classes in soon.

Races Planned/Actual: 1/1. The Peachtree Road Race 10K. Went way better than expected.

PR’s: 0. But still really happy with my time at the Peachtree.

New to Me Cross Training: All about the TRX. I’ve been to 4 classes now. LOVE!

Challenges Complete: 1/3. Even though I really did 2/3 I forgot to enter my miles into Christine’s spreadsheet. I’m smart like that.  I never even attempted the ab challenge that Amanda at Run to the Finish had for the month. It just didn’t happen. Way to much going and too much to keep track of.

Current Aches/Pains: VERY happy to report that all calf/shin pain is gone. I don’t know if it’s the shoes, chiropractor, stretching, or rest. Or all of the above, but I’ll take it.

Current Book: Um. Magazines? Not an ounce of time to read any books-even though I downloaded Emily Giffin’s latest.  I have 4 plane rides this month so I hope to read this and at least one more.

Current Obsession: If it couldn’t be more obvious. Hood to Coast. Also very excited to have a trip to NYC the weekend before. Also, my new Oiselle running shorts. And Maui Jim running shades.

Current Drink: All flavors of NUUN. Abita Strawberry Beer.

Current Likes: TRIPS TRIPS TRIPS. The Olympics. Running Pain free.

Current Dislikes: Work. Got a bit wrapped up the past few weeks but had a few coworkers put it all into perspective.  Just a job, not saving the world.

Current Treat: I had girl scout cookies in the freezer.  I was WAY over indulging and threw them in the trash. My treats cannot be kept at home.  Still haven’t had Yoforia in a while and have been craving it!

Current Excitement: NYC, Hood to Coast. Race planning for the Fall.

Plan for the Week:

Monday: 4 mile run. TRX class.

Tuesday: 6 mile morning run. 4 mile evening run.

Wednesday: pilates or TRX.

Thursday: 4-6 mile run. private pilates.

Friday: 4-6 miles or rest.

Saturday: 12-14 miles.

Sunday: Pilates
