Rest week! And I did just that, though I had good intentions of sticking to the actual rest week schedule.
Monday: Shane just finished building up a new bike, so we biked to work together! Whoosh! I arrived home sweaty and wobbly-legged, so called that my workout for the night.
Tuesday: Just under 3 miles in 25:20. Awesome.
Wednesday: The first of two No Good Very Frustrating Days kicked off with a sweaty bike ride to work and culminated with a very angst-inducing ride home. I arrived home, my cheeks stained with tears of frustration, not wanting to do anything other than Eat All The Food. Shane talked me out of it, though he agreed that I should probably take the night off from further exercise.
Thursday: 5 miles home, with a pit stop in the middle. I’m not sure if it was the Mexican food or the unexpected 90 degree heat on a day when I was underhydrated, but my stomach was cramping! Otherwise, a great run.
Friday: A belated Chest, Shoulders and Triceps. My lifts keep going up, but I felt really weak and tired this week. Just proof that I need to keep working hard!
Saturday: Food got kind of weird today. Saturday is our normal cheat day, but since we knew we’d be indulging at a wedding on Sunday, we tried to be good. At the same time, I did my long run, so I was HONGRY. 7 miles will do that to a girl. Also it is worth noting that we did our belated 60 day measurements before leaving town – while most of my numbers have stayed the same, my body fat percentage is down by 3% since June. And THAT is awesome.
Sunday: Someone in the Daily Burn Four Hour Body group set up a virtual 5K for this weekend, so I logged my 3.1 miles in 28 minutes first thing in the morning while the rest of the house was still waking up. I also danced well into the night at a super fun wedding, but I’m sure that effort barely made a dent in the champagne I was simultaneously consuming.
