Weekly Recap: May Week 4

 

Happy three day weekend! It is a scorcher here. It was 97 and VERY humid and sunny here yesterday. You step outside and it just hits you. You can’t breathe and instantly are drenched. So much fun! Despite the heat we had a good day. We workout out, did some cleaning and went to see What to Expect When You’re Expecting. I LOVED it, but then again i love cheesy romantic comedy movies. Bobby informed me we are definitely not having kids after seeing that. Good try buddy. We hit up Target and then stopped by our neighborhood pool party before settling in for the night. A great Saturday indeed, AND, a decent week of workouts (finally!!!) for Heather.

Sunday: rest

Monday: ran 2.5 miles and lifted weights

Tuesday: 10 minutes stationary bike, weights

Wednesday: rest

Thursday: ran 2 miles, weights

Friday: weights, yoga on my own about ten minutes

Saturday: ran 4 miles, weights

Gym bathroom photo. Clearly entertaining. Oh, and I wore my red white and blue stars skirt for my Memorial Day weekend run.

I know my runs were short, but MAN it was hot this week. I either need to get up earlier to run or become BBF’s with the treadmill. Here are my totals:

Running: 8.5 miles. eh.

weights: 5 x’s, right on target!

cross training: 10 minutes stationary bike. This could use work.

yoga: 10 minutes on my own. Missed class this week because it was the day Bobby got Lasik.

I’m getting back on track after my food poisoning and vacation. I have come to grips with the fact that my running numbers are just going to have to be lower until it gets cooler. Sadly, I will have to do some long running in the heat since I am running a half on September 2, but it’s more of a fun race so I’m not too worries about it. I am home all week this week so hopefully it will be a good workout week!

I also wanted to mention today is my parent’s 35th wedding anniversary! Mom and dad we love you so much, thank you for setting a great example of what a loving home looks like and for always being there for us.

QOTD: What are you doing on this long weekend?

Are you following me on Twitter?  Lot’s of fun going on over there!

  1. Its so hard to run in humidity/heat, you did awesome!

    I’m obsessed with running skirts, they are the best. Red white and blue stars is SO perfect :) Very cute.

  2. What races are on your agenda for the upcoming season? Sounds like a fun Saturday…I’d like to see that movie too! Maybe if I don’t go out of town tonight I’ll drag Kyle!

  3. I think you shared your humidity with the midwest today! I could barely breathe during my run today; it was miserable! We have storms coming tonight, so hopefully tomorrow will be less humid. Running in the humidity is the worst.

  4. This heat is crazy! I ran a 10k yesterday and it was brutal. Congrats to your parents, that is a huge milestone!

  5. I can barely even walk in the heat. Is it any better early morning or evening?

    • it’s so miserable! Early in the morning is when humidity is the worst so you feel like you are swimming. Evening is still really hot, the heat off the blacktop from the day is radiating up. I won’t run after dark, I am a wuss!
