Weekly Recap: September 2nd-8th, 2019

Have you ever felt like a week just kinda…slipped through your fingers? That’s how I feel about this week.

Like, one second it was Monday and then all of a sudden it was Friday and I had no idea where all of that time had gone. 😂 Of course I DO know where that time went! It just all felt like a blur!!

I guess that probably had something to do with the long weekend. Tuesday felt like Monday and everything just got thrown off from there. So yeah, this week wasn’t a really good one. Things just kinda got away from me. 🤷🏻‍♀️

Monday:

  • 9 holes of golf
  • 20 minutes on the stationary bike
  • 7 minutes of core work

Happy Labor Day!!!

How did you celebrate?? (I’m not even going to get into the irony that is Labor Day. We’re supposed to be celebrating laborers and yet they’re the one’s who usually have to work and office workers are the one’s who get the day off? 🤔)

Anyway, Luke and I celebrated by hitting the golf course and playing 9 holes. I’m still really bad at pretty much everything aside from putting. I am really really good at putting. So I guess maybe I should stick to mini golf. 😂

  • Tuesday:
    • Tempo run on the treadmill, 3 miles
      5 minutes of arm work

    Ok, so this was actually something I did get right this week!

    Tempo runs are probably my least favorite workout to do. Like ever. But I think this one went really well!! I wouldn’t say I crushed it, but it was a decently solid workout.

    Followed that with a tiny bit of arm work. Hahaha something is better than nothing, right?! 😉

    Wednesday:

    • Rest day

    Now here’s where things really start to get wonky. The plan was to switch Thursday’s cross training with Wednesday’s run. Obviously that didn’t happen.

    But I did take Dean for a nice walk Wednesday evening. I actually took a dog for a walk every evening this week (this photo is actually from Tuesday nights walk, but whatevs. 😂). That’s been really nice. Dusk is probably my favorite time of day, and while it’s still pretty warm here I’ve really been enjoying my evening walks.🌙

    Thursday:

    • 15 minutes stationary bike
    • 10 minutes Pilates

    My job interview with Garmin was Thursday morning!! How weird do I look without my nose ring in???😂😂

    I think I look weird, anyway. It’s been pierced since I was 19 (so 8 years) and I rarely ever take it out. But I wanted to make a good first impression for this interview so it had to go. Along with my purple hair. I’m not sure if I’ve actually mentioned that here, but I dyed my hair black last weekend with this interview in mind. I wanted to look a little less like a rebellious teenager. I’m not sure if I managed that, but I tried!

    Anyway, I think the interview went well! I should hear back from Garmin at some point next week so fingers crossed that they decide to move forward in their interview process with me! 🤞🏻

    Now my interview was at 8:30 in the morning. Which is usually when I do my running. But one thing just kinda happened after another on Thursday and by the time I realized that I never ran it was like 8:30 pm and I didn’t feel like doing it. So I didn’t… I did hit up the stationary bike and do a little bit of Pilates though, so again, something is better than nothing!

    But this is why I prefer to run in the mornings. Then it’s out of the way and I don’t have to worry about it for the rest of the day. 😂

    But if I do get this job with Garmin I’m either going to have to wake up at like 4:30 am to get my runs done, run on my lunch break (which apparently a lot of people do. No surprise there. This is Garmin we’re talking about. 😉), or run in the evening. But I guess I’ll figure that out as needed!

    Friday:

    • 3 miles

    This run was kinda meh. My legs have just been tired and heavy. Which is weird considering how little running I’ve done this week. I was hoping that a nice and easy 3 miles would help, but it didn’t end up helping at all. 🤷🏻‍♀️ Oh well. I was still glad to get this run done. 😄

    Saturday:

    • 4.47 miles
    • 30 minutes of yoga and foam rolling

    Ew yeah no, this did not go well. My quads were REALLY hurting on Saturday. Gross.

    My husband got sick with a bad cold and I’m really hoping I don’t end up catching it too, but I’m also kinda wondering if that’s why I felt so tired and sore on Saturday. Gross.

    Sunday:

    • rest day

    Well so far I’m not feeling terrible, but I’m still not feeling great either. Hopefully after a rest day I’ll be fine but my throat is starting to feel a little scratchy so I don’t know. Usually if my husband gets sick I end up catching it not long after… I’m really hoping I don’t end up with this bug though. I’ve already missed out on enough running, I don’t need to miss anymore.

    But yeah. This week, it just got away from me. It happens though. Hopefully next week will be better!

    Happy Sunday!
