The week honestly seems like a blur right now…I keep meaning to update yall on things I’m Lovin but the week just gets away from me. Hopefully this will be the week!
- PLAN- 20 min core work
- ACTUAL- 20 min core work
- PLAN- 10 min warmup, 7×1 mile repeats @ 1 mile pace, 400m recovery b/tw
- ACTUAL- 9.75 miles @ 8:12 avg pace 7×1 @ 7:08 pace and Yoga for Athletes
Cheating on FODMAP and eating at the chocolate led to mid-run on the treadmill race to the bathroom. Ahh. I know the consequences and this was a quick reminder that cheating doesn’t work before a hard run.
To make the day worse, I got a speeding ticket. In a construction zone. To the amazing tune of $640. I have no words. Mainly anger. To the pig who pulled me over and no one else going the same speed as me. GRRRRR. That afternoon I made it to my favorite Yoga for Runners class again. MUCH needed.
- PLAN- 7 mile endurance run
- ACTUAL- 7 miles @ 8:30 avg pace, private pilates
It was a gorgeous morning for a run! I don’t think I can ever get enough sunrise runs. That afternoon, a private pilates session with Laura. Lots of focus on lengthening, core, and arm work. AND, in really exciting news, I finally got a ride-around-town-bike. It’s festival season in the ATL, the weather is gorgeous, and all sorts of fun restaurants are opening up on the beltline and a bike is a fun way to commute! I think Rich cringed at buying crappy Craiglists bikes, but they were cheap and if something happens to them, it won’t matter. Thursday:
- PLAN- 45 mins muscle imbalance strength
- ACTUAL- 1 mile @ 7:13 pace, muscle imbalance work
- PLAN- 1 mile endurance, 3×1200 @ 1200 pace, 400m recovery, 2 miles tempo pace
- ACTUAL- 6 miles @ 7:58 pace. 3×1200 @ 6:53, 2 @ 7:35, Exhale Chill Yoga
A solid speed work session and then my other favorite yoga class, Exhale Chill. I think we only did about 5 poses the entire class and they were all hip opener type stretches. AMAZING. Rich and I had our first marital meeting at the church and that was interesting to say the least. We had planned on heading out to Ragnar Trail to see our friends and my Nuun buddies and celebrate where we met but the bottom fell out of the sky and we weren’t hanging out in the mud and rain if we didn’t have too.
- PLAN- 10 miles @ MGP
- ACTUAL- 10 miles @ 7:58 pace
I met Jes and Tricia for a run along the river. I felt strong the entire time and easily held a conversation. It’s hard to believe I only have a few runs with Jes left in the ATL before she moves to Florida. It’s gonna be a big adjustment for me- we always work out together and she’s become a good friend and someone I can count on to join me for miles or a good yoga class. That afternoon, Rich and I took the bikes to a festival and then spent the afternoon cleaning out the house. Sunday:
- PLAN- rest day
- ACTUAL- rest day
After a quick visit my nieces, we spent the rest of the day finishing our cleaning projects. We cleaned out 2 closets and finished updating our bling wall and FINALLY finishing my gallery wall that I’ve wanted since I moved in. I’m obsessed.
Total Miles for the Week: 33.75
A nice step back week before 2 pretty big weeks ahead. I always love a full week in Atlanta and love when I can get a lot of things checked off the to-do list!
What’s the most you’ve paid for a speeding ticket? Are you good about getting things hung up around your house or do you take your time? Is your city bike-friendly?
