Oh, the week after you return from vacation leaves your body in all sorts of weirdness…odd schedules, late bedtimes, bad eating habits. We all love and savor vacation, but the week after is always trying. We need to fix our schedules so we can be rested and ready for the week ahead, eat nutritious food to have energy, and get back on track with our workouts. It took me a few days before I was ready for weight training again, but once I refocused there, I was a much happier person!
How’d I gain my happiness [and sanity] back? Here’s a breakdown:
Monday: 2.8 mile walk to and from dinner
Tuesday: 2.41 mile run (27:29) before dinner and 1.86 mile walk after dinner
Wednesday: 3.08 mile run (33:41) with NoDa Brewing Run Club
It still makes me smile to think many people doubted that Sizzle ran with me. They were all surprised when I shared that she runs up to 5 miles with me. We only did the 3 mile route, but both of us could have kept going!
Thursday: BBBC A + Yoga at Midtown Park
Once again, I was ready to work out when I arrived home and BBBC was calling my name. Then it was off to yoga. I loved the experience having the city skyline in the background and outdoor yoga was awesome! Thanks Chandra from Yoga One
Friday: BBBC B
Best move EVER: The Breakdancer!
Saturday: 7.12 mile run (1:28:27)
Sunday: 1 mile walk
Easy evening walk with the pup.
Total Weekly Miles: 18.27 miles
By looking back at this week it doesn’t seem that I was too far off from being active daily, but seeing that I didn’t start BBBC until Thursday makes me realize that I lacked some motivation and went with the ‘easy’ workouts [which are always running and walking] for me. Part of my drive for running/walking comes from my pup – I always know she’s game to get outside and exercise! Next week is Week 8 of Best Body Boot Camp…I can’t believe how fast this program has flown. The workouts always leave me sweating by the end, so no complaints that you aren’t getting enough out of them!
