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.
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
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.
Wednesday: 5 AM Group Power and 6 mile run!
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!
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?
