Weekly Recap: July 11th-17th, 2016


  • 20 easy minutes

This was my first run back after taking a week of for my foot. It went pretty well! At first my foot felt a little sore, but after a few minutes it was fine. 🙂 I probably would have stayed out longer, but I had 3 dogs in the backyard and it was 80 degrees out, so I didn’t want to be out to long. I think 20 minutes was sufficient though.



  • 30 minute NTC work out

Ugh, I was dragging ass on Tuesday. Got s strength work out in though, so at least I accomplished that.


  • 3 hilly miles
  • Yoga for Runners: Cool Down

Intentionally sought out hills on Wednesday. Not my brightest idea though. My legs and butt were CRAZY sore from Tuesday’s workout.

When I started this run I felt like I could barely move my legs, by mile two I felt great, and mile 3 was pretty good too, but I was getting hot and tired at that point. I ended up negative splitting which was really cool!

But about an hour after I finished I felt like I could barley walk and pretty much had to hobble around for the rest of the day. Like I said, not my brightest idea. I’m still super stoked that I managed to hit negative splits though. 😄


  • 30 minutes (7.6 miles) on the stationary bike

Stationary bike, lots of walking, and lots of food on Thursday. 😁



  • Rest day


  • Rest day

Wanted to do a long run on Saturday, but my mom and dad were here and it just didn’t happen. I still got a lot of walking done though. 😄


  • 4 miles

My heat sensitive ass though I could get an 8 mile run done, starting at 8 in the morning when it was already sunny and 75 degrees. Obviously that didn’t work out for me. I wanted to run again in the evening, but that was a no go as well. It’s just too hot…oh well, at least I got 4 miles in this morning.

Total weekly mileage: 8.49

I’m actually not to upset about that. I start half marathon training soon, so I’m thinking a few easy weeks are probably a good idea. 😄

But just because I didn’t do much running , doesn’t mean I didn’t do much moving. Thanks to Pokemon Go, Luke and I have done A LOT of wandering around the neighborhood. I think it’s pretty safe to say that I’m going to win Garmin Connect’s 65k step challenge this week. As I type this, it’s only 4pm and we may go out Pokemon hunting again. 😁

How was your week? 

Have you been playing Pokemon Go?

Do you participate in step challenges? They tend to make me super competitive hahaha.
