So this weekend was a busy but relaxing weekend and just what I needed!
Kicked off the weekend with a little boating with work…
I kept up with the challenge I’m on and it felt good to make it a priority this weekend! I didn’t want to always work out but after working out I felt awesome and it was a great way to start off my day. My shins have been acting up just a tad so on Friday night I went for a short run/walk and got in my three miles. I made sure to ice, ice, ice my shins because I knew I would be in a world of hurt on Monday for the half marathon if they continued to feel this way all weekend. Saturday morning it was so nice to sleep in! I hit the gym up and really worked hard, I was there for two hours, capping it off with a 6 mile ride on the bike. I was feeling good and made sure to take time to stretch my calves, ice and do some exercises to hopefully strengthen the shins before the half.
Sunday morning I slept in, went for a 3 mile walk and felt good. It was a GREAT day out!
I took these two with me too, and it was great to have someone to travel with on my lovely walk. They were nice to walk with and worn out for the rest of the day too!
Later that day we went to the Patchwork Craft Festival which was fun and there is always tons of ideas and stuff to buy there. I restrained for the most part but did get some awesome new FEATHERS to add to my hair!
Sunday was also my brother’s graduation party and it was lovely to see everyone again and celebrate his graduation.
The next morning, bright and early I had the Laguna Hills Half! I will post the race recap tomorrow!
So the 40 day Challenge is chugging away and though I haven’t seen any physical difference I am feeling much better about myself. This morning when my alarm went off at 5:45 to go to the gym, I ALMOST hit snooze but I knew the awesome feeling that would greet me after my gym time so I struggled out of bed and splashed the cold water on my face and I was off. Of course, after working out I was feeling like I was ready to kick butt and take names.
Friday – 1 Hour Pilates class, 3 mile run/walk. Felt really challenged throughout the class but learned some great new tricks to work a ton of new things and tone, tone, tone!
Saturday – Biked 6 miles, worked out abs, arms and back. Felt AWESOME and like I could take over the world after the gym!
Sunday – Ran 13.1 miles at the Laguna Hills Half
Monday – Biked 6 miles, worked out arms and calves at the gym. Feeling great and looking forward to my next yoga class at Purple Yoga tonight!
