Weekly Wrap – Just Go Go Go

This was a week of go-go-go. There was much to juggle between work and home and once again I was doing the single parent drill as J was traveling again. I’ll admit there were many times this week where my patience was seriously tested. While carving out time for my workouts is always a priority, it was key to my sanity this week!

I’m linking up with Holly & Tricia for the Weekly Wrap so here’s a quick look at how I kept my sanity this week.

Monday: Mondays are usually rest days, but thanks to the #RunNovemberChallenge, I got out for a quick powerwalk around the block.

Tuesday: The frigid temps continued as I had to learn to re-acquaint myself with my layering skills 🙂

Wednesday: A leg burning workout was on the decks as I met E for time on the ‘mill and then hit the weights.

Thursday: DOMS kicked in from Wednesday workout which made this run a real challenge. But I knew I had a crazy day ahead and squeezing in this time for myself was worth running on tired legs.

Friday: By the time Friday rolled around I was t-i-r-e-d! I met a friend for lunch, got a brisk mile walk in and called it a day.

Saturday: I had planned to run, but just couldn’t get motivated to get out in the cold. I knew Sunday was supposed to be warmed and my legs were aching for a good stretch so I swapped in some yoga and another mile and gave my body the rest it craved.

Sunday: It was definitely warmer when my alarm when off, but also pouring rain. Yeah no…so I waited out the rain and finally headed out in the early afternoon. The wind was swirling and non-stop, but it was 50 degrees!

So despite the crazy week, I still managed 4.25 miles walking, 9 miles running, 5 minutes of planking/day, plus some time with both weights and my yoga mat – sanity saved!

How was your week?

  11. I would have taken a hard pass on the rain, too! Yuck! Of course, if I waited til early afternoon to run, it would be sunny and in the 70s, so sometimes we just have to get it done.

    You did great this week! Keep it up!

  12. I am such a fair-weather outdoor activities gal. Luckily, living in Colorado, there are so many amazing days it doesn’t impact me too badly. Wind is definitely my least favorite to be dealing with. I’ll do snow and rain, but if the wind is more than 15 mph sustained, I’m indoors. lol.

  21. I’m inspired by your planks! I’ve let my non-running exercises fall to the wayside unfortunately lately and keep meaning to get back to it. Maybe a challenge is the kick in the pants I need.

  22. Great job with your workouts this week! It seems like you have bounced back really well and you are into the groove again. Glad to see that things are going well for you! Have a great week!
