Weekly Wrap #17

It’s Monday which means it’s time to wrap-up another week!

Monday:  Strength day.
Tuesday:  3.25 mile run.
Wednesday:  Strength day.
Thursday:  3 mile run. (The group run with BGR didn’t come together but we’re going to try again this week)
Friday:  Spent the day with a friend – lots of walking.
Saturday:  J decided to join me for a run – 4.25 miles done. Followed by an afternoon of yard/garden work.
Sunday:  Rest day.

Plus daily planking continued!

For the most part it was a pretty routine week around here. Mother Nature continued to show she has a sense of humor – after last week where I was prepared to build an ark, this week she flipped the heat switch! I was so not ready for the 30 degree jump in temps and there may have been some whining while running.

I did get a nice surprise of winning a pair of Zensah Well Rounded Shorts during Tuesday night’s #BibChat. Zensah is my go-to choice for compression gear so I’m very psyched and cannot wait for them to arrive in the mail! And, speaking of fun things in the mail, I came home Wednesday to find these books waiting for me.

Velo Press Books

As a little perk to the Rock’n’Blog team, we each got to pick a couple of books from a collection of great titles from VeloPress! I started reading Racing Weight last night – review to come soon!

Have you read either of these books? How was your week?

I’m linking up again with Holly and Tricia for the #WeeklyWrap.






  1. Really you had heat?? It rained a ton for us then frost. I swear. I read Racing Weight a few years ago and was SO put off by what he thought my ideal weight should be as I’m nowhere near it. Even when I was running BQ’s I was nowhere near it. I got the Racing Weight Cookbook so stay tuned for a review on that one.

  4. I have racing weight. I liked it when I got it but didn’t implement it. I should go back and take a better look. I will be curious to know what you think.

  5. I’m sure I don’t want to do what it takes to get to my racing weight! I’m struggling to be consistent enough to lose just a few pounds. Yay for your son running with you.

  6. That’s a nice perk for being on the Rock N Blog team! I haven’t read either of those. Congrats on that daily planking. Some days I just simply forget (oops). Our heat & humidity switch was flipped on a few weeks ago. I never get used to it. I whine. Thanks for linking with us Michelle!

  8. That’s a nice perk from the Rock n’ Blog team! I’ve never read Racing Weight, but I’ve heard of it and look forward to your review. Nice job on your daily planking! I need to get back into that habit.
