Hello divas! I hope all is going well and that you had a fabulous weekend. It was rainy and dreary here (though the temperature was fantastic) for most of the weekend but the sun finally came out yesterday in time for a run. It’s Monday again which means it is also time for my weekly report when I share how last week went and set some goals for this coming week.
The Weekly Report July 21
Running. This was not the best week for running. I only got 2 runs in for a total of 5.5 miles. So not good for the half marathon training. And to top it off, my long run only ended up being 3.5 miles and I walked almost all of them. There was a lot of things going wrong on this run. I didn’t wear my compression sleeves on my calves which led to some pain in both my shins and calves from time to time. Also, I chose an incredibly hilly route which was not my smartest move since I have been so out of practice with the running. This is at the top of my list to work on next week.
Workouts. What I lacked in running, I made up for with my workouts in general. I ended up working out a total of 6 days this week. I did my daily T25 workout Monday-Thursday (with a short run on Wednesday as well) and 2 T25 workouts on Friday as part of the Double Down Friday. So far so good.
Nutrition. This was an all right week in terms of nutrition. I tracked my food every day and came in under calories most days. However, I did have a couple of days with some yummy but not so good for me food (think Sonic, Little Ceasers and McDonalds). I have a weakness for fast food so this is a work in progress for me.
Measurements for the week. This week my I weighed in at 160.9 lbs. This means I lost 1.6 lbs. last week!!!! I lost 1 inch around my waist, but the other measurements (arms, thighs, hips, chest) remained the same. Not too bad for week 1.
- Running. This week I plan on getting in my 4 days of running, though I am not sure as to which days yet. I hope to do a long run of 5 miles this weekend and I plan on running a route with more gradual hills as opposed to the steep ones I tried this week.
- Workouts. I am still doing T25 and hope to complete week 2 of the program. I want to make some progress and try to modify less than last week.
- Nutrition. I am setting a goal of no fast food this week. I know I will be going out to dinner with the girls this week, but I am just going to say no to the drive-thru. I will continue to track my calories and exercise to try to stay on track.
- Anniversary. My hubby and I will be married 6 years as of this coming Saturday. He is working that day, but has promised to take me out to dinner. I am sure there will also be some watching of our wedding video and giggling yet again at us throwing out the first pitch at the baseball game in our wedding clothing.
