Fit Minded Friday

This has been the longest week in a very long time. I was doing so well with doing something fitness related everyday until this week.


Saturday – 4 mile long run. On track for my half marathon in November.

Sunday – 4 mile unplanned run. My friend Meghann called me and wanted to know about joining her for a run and I’ve missed running with her so I said yes. I’m glad I did. I had a really great time running and catching up!

Monday – I decided a rest day might be in order. Plus, I was super sore from my 2 weekend runs. I did however, run over to Fit2Run where they were having a Q&A with Jeff Galloway. I took the opportunity to go and ask some questions and learn a bunch!


Tuesday – This became a forced rest day. Our AC broke in the afternoon and I spent the afternoon calling about getting it fixed. By early evening it was 90 degrees in the house. It was exhausting and HOT!

Wednesday – AC got fixed around lunchtime so I grabbed a bike ride on the trainer. 4 miles in a little over 20 minutes.

Thursday – 2.5 mile run. Broke in my new kicks, Brooks Glycerin 15’s. I liked them but they are much heavier, which is the point, but definitely a new feeling.


Friday – Today we awoke to the worst news. Jon’s grandmother had passed away. No morning workouts. We will see what the afternoon brings about.

I never really thought about the mental toll the week can take on you. Between the heat and everything it is just exhausting. Time to get back on track starting with tomorrow’s 5-miler.
