I don’t always use the badge for the Weekly Wrap Link Up hosted by Holly and Tricia, but this time of year I love everything related to the beach. Too bad I don’t have plans to put my toes in the sand any time soon. On the other hand, I think ALL my clients will be on vacation in July, which is fine, except most are European and will be gone for WEEKS, which is great for them, but they want ALL the work that’s due in July to be done by next week, which would be okay, except none of them told me this until last week. If I get one more email saying “Since I will be out July xx-yy can you please send me that document this week” I will scream. Or cry. Or go to Starbucks …. And then plan my own vacation.
At least I’m not too busy for my morning workouts! This week I did less running than usual, but that’s okay since my next big race isn’t until September.
Monday: Orange Theory Fitness + Strength
The OTF Beats App finally works for my new studio, which means I can get even more workout data. During this class, we did three rounds each of rowing machine/weights/treadmill, which is why my heart rate varied so much–any why it wasn’t in the orange zone for very long.
After OTF, I did about 30 minutes of strength at my office gym, including some planks.
Tuesday: 5 mile hilly run
You’d think that after OTF my legs would be tired. but there’s something about those short treadmill intervals that make me want to run harder–or at least tackle some hills–on my next run.
Can you see the church spire on the right? That’s my church!
Wednesday: 45 minute strength workout at home
Thursday: 3 mile rainy run
I didn’t intend to run in the rain, but it didn’t start until I was halfway down my hill, and didn’t start pouring until I was about 1 mile from home. Once you’re wet, you’re wet, so I was going to keep running until I saw a flash of lighting and decided not to be a dumbass.
This may be my RunChatHunt “flag” entry.
Friday: 30 minute strength workout at home
Saturday: 3 mile run, 30 min yoga, 30 min November Project workout at the Fit Plus Harbor East fitness festival–I’ll share more about that on Wednesday!
Sunday: 31-ish mile bike ride
This may have been the last ride for my Garmin 405. The GPS wasn’t working for the first mile (that could have been user error, but it looked like it had been on), and then it missed about 30 minutes of the middle of the ride. I thought it had died, but when I un-froze the screen it still showed the data it had tracked so far, so I don’t know what happened. The last time it flaked out mid-ride was on our epic anniversary ride and I don’t want it happening again during the Farm To Fork Fondo in August, so I may have just ordered my fifth Garmin GPS watch. Yes, I’m addicted to technology!
Do you have a beach vacation lined up?
