What a week…I’m so proud of myself for prioritizing my training last week. I knew I should do my long run before my trip and changed the schedule. I think that means I’m taking this seriously and I know that the only way big goals can be achieved is by hard work.
I wrote all about my trip yesterday but one thing I forgot to mention was the house we stayed in had 6 floors. My room was on the top, meaning I think I climbed at least 1000 steps this weekend. #notjoking My hamstrings are tight, I’m in desperate need of a massage so that is one of this week’s priorities.
Ok time to recap the week…
MONDAY – 5 mi. Woke up bright and early and had a great run across the Bay.
TUESDAY – 8 mi. Decided to do my long run before my trip to the U.K. and it was a smart move too. I knew I’d be tired and outta wack from all the travel and fun.
WEDNESDAY – Travel Day.
THURSDAY – Travel Day.
FRIDAY – 5 mi. Woke up and braved the very chilly London cold to run with my friend Tommy in Hyde Park. So much fun running with friends, I forgot how time flies when your having running fun.
SATURDAY – 5k race and trail run. Our ASICS FrontRunner UK hit up the Bath Skyline ParkRun in the morning and I had planned on trying for a PB. But it was cold, wet, muddy and not exactly a PB course with stairs and steep hills but I tried my best and finished strong with 27:11. I finished 2nd in my age group so I was cool with that. I know I will PB my 5k next year, it one of my 2018 goals.
SUNDAY – 1 hr ride. MISSED. Spent the day traveling on trains and at the airport.
MONDAY – Travel Day.
PAST WEEK’S GOALS
+ Drink 90 oz water/day – I must admit my water consumption has declined so I have to make it a priority again.
— BETTER but not perfect
+ Get at least 7 hours of sleep a night
— Killed it!
+ Maintain intermittant fasting eating plan in preparation for #TheFasterWayToFatLoss Week 1 next week (more about this later)
— Was able to maintain my 12 fast every single day! It’s a whole lot easier than I thought it would be and way better for my blood sugar.
THIS WEEK”S GOALS
