just looking at that image above is making me so nostalgic for summer right now. & California, of course (especially because my best friend is currently in Santa Barbara, the city in which that photo was snapped just 2 months ago). although we’ve had a lovely Autumn here in NY, today is the dreariest everrr and i’m missing my lovely running weather like whoa.
Thurs, Oct 22: 4-5mile run home from work
Fri, Oct 23: strength & abs in the gym (upper body w/ kettlebells, free weights & back machines)
Sat, Oct 24: rest, because i thought i was running a half the next day
Sun, Oct 25: the half that wasn’t. my anticipated 1st-ever trail race didn’t happen, as it rained all Saturday night and Sunday morning, and i wasn’t trying to do a 13 mile mud run. instead i ran 7ish miles of hills in the drizzle and felt good about that.
Mon, Oct 26: rest.
Tues, Oct 27: an hour of total body and abs in the morning, and a 3.5 mile run last night after seeing clients and before meeting a friend for dinner, and a whole bunch of biking to get everywhere. my schedule is crazy packed these days so i’m fitting in workouts when/however i can!
Wed, Oct 28 (today): i will be running home in the rain, most likely, unless it’s pouring to the extent that i have to get on the treadmill (boo). i’ll take whatever i can get!
*thoughts: life has gotten increasingly busy now that i’m seeing clients after work a few nights a week, so i’m trying not to be too hard on myself if i can’t get in all the runs and workouts i’d like each week. i’m still planning to dedicate my weekends to longer runs and do what i can throughout the week. i’m literally running from one thing to the next every day, but my life has so many good things in it right now that i want to prioritize, so i can’t complain. 🙂
How have your workouts been this week?
