Weekly Recap: July 4th-10th, 2016

Monday: Independence Day

  • Rest Day

After deciding to take a few days off from running (you can read more about that here) I also decided to take Monday off. Just because why not. πŸ˜‰



  • About 10 minutes of Blogilates ab videos
  • 12 minute abs/arms Nike Training Club workout, followed by a 5 min. full body NTC workout


I kinda forgot how hard the NTC workouts can be…I woke up crazy sore, so just the biking and stretching for me today. My goal was to keep my heart rate in the aerobic zone the whole time and for the most part I did! There were a few times when I crossed into the threshold zone, but that’s Green Day’s fault. πŸ˜‰ Also, I know the picture is pretty bad, but check out that back sweat! Haha I was working HARD! πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚



  • 10 minutes (miles) on the stationary bike 
  • 40 minute NTC workout

Ugh, still tired and sore on Thursday. I thought about testing out my food with a short, easy run, but it was thunderstorming pretty bad when I got up and was super hot and humid. So that just didn’t happen. So I warmed up on the stationary bike, then did a Nike Training Club work out instead. 

Along with actually working out, Luke and I ended up exploring the neighborhood Wednesday evening, for the most nerdy reason ever. Pokemon Go came out on Tuesday and we wanted to find Pokemon (which we did!). We ended up in a really old cemetery. Some of the headstones dated back to the 1800’sband I though that was pretty neat! 


  • Rest Day

Ugh, I’ve just been so worn out lately. I guess from the heat, maybe? That tends to wear me down…

I slept in waaay to late to even consider running today anyway. 8:30 am is absolutely unheard of for me! I’m always up around 7, unless it’s summer and I’m running that day. Then I’m up at 5. Whatever though. I must have needed the extra sleep.


  • Rest Day

I wanted to run on Saturday, but I slept in again. My parents and one of my sisters came to visit, and we went for a walk that even though. πŸ˜„


  • Rest day

Oh man, today has already been bunches of fun, and it’s only 6:30 am. I’ll be posting more about that later today. 😞
