Weekly Recap: June 10th-16th, 2019

Well I’ve sure had an interesting week when it comes to running! Some good, some well, not so good but funny now to look back on. ๐Ÿ˜‚ Although I am still feeling one of my running incidents from this week. But we’ll get there in a minute. ๐Ÿ˜‰

It was an interesting week and an all around good week as far as training goes! I got in all of the mileage that I wanted to get done, I’ve been (mostly) sticking with the Blogilates Summer Sculpt Challenge, and I even got a few speedier workouts done! ๐Ÿ˜

So, let’s get this weird week recapped!

Monday:

  • 3 miles
  • Blogilates Summer Sculpt

So we somehow got INCREDIBLY lucky when it comes to weather! At least I sure think so! ๐Ÿ˜‰ On Monday morning it was a glorious 53 degrees when I started my run! It was FANTASTIC!

It was still a little humid, but honestly I can’t really complain about that. Last June it was already crazy hot so 53 degrees this time of year almost felt unheard of. It was great and I enjoyed every second of it. ๐Ÿ˜Š

Tuesday:

  • 2 miles
  • Blogilates Summer Sculpt

I’m not entirely sure what to call Tuesday’s run. ๐Ÿคท๐Ÿปโ€โ™€๏ธ๐Ÿ˜‚ It wasn’t really a specific workout but it was definitely a harder effort. And that harder effort felt pretty darn great because we had another cooler morning. ๐Ÿ˜‰

Followed my run with the Blogilates Summer Sculpt challenge, of course! As you can see, Bubbles has been joining me for these Pilates sessions. I have a sneaking suspicion that she’s not working as hard as I am though. ๐Ÿ˜น

Wednesday:

  • 5 miles
  • Blogilates Summer Sculpt

Wednesday was when things really started getting interesting!

So if youโ€™ve been following along with me for a while then you probably know that I like to run through my townโ€™s cemetery. Itโ€™s just so calm and peaceful there. But one downside is that I live in a super small town so the cemetery is also super small. I think the road that goes through it is close to a quarter of a mile all the way around? Something like that. But on the bright side, there is RARELY anyone else there. Thatโ€™s one of the reasons I love run to through there.

But on Wednesday I accidentally stumbled upon a funeral. Oops!! I had to nope the fuck out of there real quick! Luckily they were just setting stuff up at that point, so I donโ€™t think I actually ended up bothering anyone. Except for the dump truck driver who was coming in as I was going out. He had PLENTY of room on that road but he wouldnโ€™t budge out of the middle of the road and therefore forced me onto the grass and over someoneโ€™s grave. Running over someoneโ€™s grave feels a little bit wrong, but it was that or need a grave of my own so ๐Ÿคท๐Ÿปโ€โ™€๏ธ

Anyway, Iโ€™m glad I didnโ€™t disturb any mourners. I feel like running through a funeral would be super rude. Hence why I got out of there ASAP. Hahaha the rest of my run was a lot less eventful and honestly that was for the best! ๐Ÿ˜‚ 5 more miles in the bank!!

Thursday:

  • Rest day

Thursday was supposed to be a cross training day but whatever. ๐Ÿคท๐Ÿปโ€โ™€๏ธ๐Ÿ˜‚ I ended up doing some serious Pokemon Go-ing instead (by walking my dogs around the neighborhood ๐Ÿ˜‰). Then I hung out with all of my puppies in the backyard for a while.

That afternoon Luke and his brothers went golfing so I had to babysit my brother-in-laws kids. It’s not that I don’t like his kids or anything, but I would have rather gone golfing. ๐Ÿ˜‚ But they wanted to do a brother thing or whatever, so it’s all good. Haha I got to golf on Friday anyway.

Friday:

  • 6 miles
  • 17 holes of golf

On Friday I fell.

About .2 miles into my run. ๐Ÿคฃ

Honestly, the fact that I fell isnโ€™t super surprising. I am a HUGE klutz. Iโ€™ve injured myself in a lot weirder ways than tripping over a pothole while on the run.

Whatโ€™s really surprising is that it took me this long to do it! Iโ€™ve never actually fallen while on a run before! The roads in my town are pretty shitty, but Iโ€™m usually really good at navigating my way around them. Not today though. I caught my foot in a particularly bad pothole while making sure I wasnโ€™t going to get hit by a car coming from the cross street and then I went down! Lol not too bad though. All I did was scrape my knees. And luckily the endorphins from running finally kicked in at around 3 miles so they only really hurt for half of the run.

And this, my friends, is why my husband wonโ€™t let me use ladders. Or mow the lawn. And has seriously questioned whether or not I should have access to sharp objects. ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚

Honestly though it could have been a lot worse so obviously I’m glad it wasn’t!

After I finished my run I ate a snack, took a shower, tended to my wounds, and then Luke called to tell me that he had an interesting day at work, that he left early, and that we were going golfing. So we did. ๐Ÿ˜‚

But only after we went to the sprint store. He wanted to get his brother a phone since he is starting college after this summer and Sprint had a bit one get one free iPhone deal going on. So my phone got upgraded from an iPhone 8 to a Xr and my brother-in-law got iOS first real phone! Fun stuff! ๐Ÿ˜„

Hahaha Friday was definitely an eventful day!

Saturday:

  • 6 miles
  • Blogilates Summer Sculpt

On Saturday I found a turtle friend!! ๐Ÿข

But turtle friend was in the middle of the road, so it got moved to the grass so that it wouldn’t get run over by a car. Some people will go out of the way to run over turtles/snakes/frogs and that just makes me so mad. Like, what’s the point?!?๐Ÿ˜ก

But anyway, I hope this one made it to wherever it was going. It was gone by the time I started my second lap of the neighborhood, so I like to think that it did. ๐Ÿ˜Š

So yeah. 6 more miles in the leg bank and the official end to me very interesting week of running. ๐Ÿ˜‚

Sunday:

  • rest day

A well earned rest day at that! I KILLED it this week! ๐Ÿ’ช๐Ÿป๐Ÿƒ๐Ÿปโ€โ™€๏ธ๐Ÿ˜Š

Hit my mileage goal, mostly stuck to the Blogilates Summer Sculpt Challenge (but obviously shit happens and running is more important, so some days things get switched around or just not done at all. But I’m still doing it and that’s all that matters .๐Ÿคท๐Ÿปโ€โ™€๏ธ), had a few very interesting runs; I almost crashed a funereal and I took a tumble. But all in all, it was a great week!

So, today was super chill! I dyed my hair, did a bunch of reading, and I plan on doing some nice stretching this evening!

Total Weekly Mileage: 22

I hope you had a great week!
