Week in review: best friends, grapes and the half ironman

Happy Friday y’all.  I don’t know about you but I’m glad it’s Friday.  I’ve been really busy at work so life has been a bit hectic this week.  It hasn’t been a bad week at all, but it hasn’t been the best week of my life either…it’s just a week!

Yesterday I did have a chance to catch up with one of my best friends.  It’s been a while since I’ve seen her so it was nice just to talk.  I guess we’ll just call September best friend reunion month because I haven’t seen any of them in awhile but I’ll get to see all of them this month.

Yes these #grapes do taste like #cottoncandy but I'm not willing to pay $4.99/pound for that. #fruit #cheapo #imcheap #foodstagram #instafood

I also spotted these cotton candy grapes at the grocer.  EVERYONE has been raving about them because the grapes taste like cotton candy.  This I know, because I took a sample.  It was good and then I looked at the price tag.  Those grapes are $4.99/pound and you know that bag probably had 2-3 pounds of grapes in it.  I’m cheap.  I can’t justify that purchase.

On Sunday, Willie had a little heart to heart with me.  He told me that this time last year I said I would do a half ironman and now the time has come and I’m not anywhere close to it.  He was very honest and he’s right.  I should have tried harder.  I should have pushed myself a little bit more but I didn’t.  I gave up because it didn’t come easy, but that’s not right.  That’s against everything that I preach, right? I promised him that I would try and that next year I will do my half ironman!  With that being said, my training is going to change. I really want to be a triathlete and I need to make it happen.  I’m just going to need a little push from my husband.

Every week I’ll be going through my workouts and linking up to Stephanie from Athlete at Heart.  So here we go:

Sunday: Rest Day


Monday: 4 mile run and Group Power

Tried to hot the pool but it was overly packed. Not the best environment for someone who isn't a strong swimmer. I'll try again later!

Tuesday: Taught my freestyle cycle class. Tried to go to the pool but it was jammed packed. This was kind of blow for me because I really had to work up the nerve to go.

Good #run! #fitfluential #ffcheckin #runhappy #workout #speedwork #sweatpink what did u do today?

Wednesday: 5 AM Group Power and 6 mile run!

I really love my job! I wake up early to motivate others to #workout. These ppl don't really know they inspire and motivate me to be better every day! I really enjoyed teaching #groupride this morning! #whyimove #fitfluential #ffcheckin #sweatpink #iambft
Thursday: Taught 5AM Group Ride. I really love my job! I wake up early to motivate others to workout. These people don’t really know they inspire and motivate me to be better every day!

Very humid this morning I struggled a bit and I had to do a wardrobe change. Started on the road and then moved to the treadmill and finished on the road. Now it's on to work! I need some #chocolatemilk. #teamchocolatemilk #maratgontraining #fitfluential
Friday: 12 mile run because I didn’t want to have to wake up early tomorrow.  I’m feeling a bit lazy so I thought I would knock it today.

Saturday: 4-5 mile recovery run.

What I learned this week?  I love to run but I need to add more into my workouts.  I don’t want to get complacent and I don’t want to get bored or burned out.  I need to make sure I hit my Centergy classes and find something else to do.  I’m committing to making a change.

What was your best workout this week? Do you have any plans for the weekend?
