Workouts & things going on this week so far:
Monday: Worked both jobs and did a 4 mile run outside at 9PM (I'm learning to like that time!)
Tuesday: Went to doctor found out about my skin issue and what I can do to help it. At night, John and I went down to Conesus Lake and road the 18.5 miles around on our bikes, then did 15 minutes of open water swimming before having dinner with my friends who live there. I did a 4 mile run when we got home to round out the day :)
Wednesday: National Running day! I did a short and sweet post about running your own life . Saw in an email that my favorite company +Saucony was going to be at MedVed Running Store for a demo and group run so of course I HAD to go. Chatted with Jeff, the Saucony Rep and other runners that were there. Most people tried Kinvara's or Mirages to do the run in, I ran in the Kinvara's I already own (think of it is BYOS: bring your own Saucony's). Had a nice 5 mile run with the group through Pittsford and on the railway trail. I was happy to be mingling with people who run and to be talking to the Saucony Rep. He even showed me the A6 racing flats that don't come out until next year! I'll get the 5's in the mean time but you can bet the 6's are on my radar!
|Magic Hat and people in Saucony's, yeah I'm okay with that! Would have been better if it was Guinness, but Magic Hat did the job that night.|
Thursday: Worked/Packed the office all day, while it was pouring rain and flooding outside. Was originally planning on doing the McMullen Mile race, but I couldn't justify spending $20 for a one mile race that I knew I couldn't do at full speed right now. So I opted for a home workout so I could do laundry and other things at the same time. 20 minute warm-up on the bike, 30 minutes running on the treadmill and 15 minutes of body-weight exercises.
Friday: oh hey, that's today! Seriously where did this week go? Today is busy with work and getting ready to be gone. I am headed to PA for the weekend with John's family which will be fun, we come back Sunday night. I will be home Monday and then leave for the rest of the week to Iowa for work (expect a post next week on how I prepared for this trip, hunting down gyms etc.!). Therefore I have a lot of laundry and packing that needs to be done for both trips! I am planning a longer run later today as well as some cycling and strength-training. I am not sure if I will be able to do anything tomorrow so I wanna get some extra in today!
|Wore my new ZeeBee Threads tank top that I won over on Annette's page, btw if you haven't checked out her blog, you need to. I really like this tank top, it's super soft and comfortable for any workout! It is the Bamboo Performance racer back tank, you can bet this wont be the only one that I own. Like I said, my workout last night was bike/run/strength training and I had it on for all 3 and had no chaffing or bunching or sweat issues!|
|Apparently I didn't want to match last night...green, black, pink and purple! At least I was wearing matching socks, that really doesn't happen often!|
What are your plans for the weekend?
What did you do on National Running Day?
