Welcome to this week’s Five Things Friday. I don’t know if I just have too much stuff going on right now (aka stress) or what but I can’t seem to focus on writing a blog post right now. I’ve sat down three times today to write a post and it’s just not coming. I’m blocked. I never want the blog a source of stress in my life. For today I’m going to let the blog post go. I always want to create content that you can gain something from but today it’s not happening. Instead you’re going to learn about my week…so far.
I’m running a half marathon tomorrow and then when that’s done I’m going to drive to Florida to run a marathon. Just wanted to let you know that I’ve completely lost my mind, but I’m just going to roll with it. Since I’ll be gone, I had to do some meal prep today which meant I had to go to the grocery store this morning. Apparently, Friday morning at 8am is the best time to go shopping. No one is in there and everything is stocked or getting stocked. It was amazing!
I spotted some really nice apples. I’ve been talking about those apples on Instagram and Facebook. Join the discussion. Basically, what is your favorite type of apple?
Last week my glutes hurt so bad. When I say bad, I mean bad. It hurt to sit down and I was trying to figure out what the problem was and I couldn’t really pin point it. Yes, I returned to Group Power last week but this pain was more than just laying off of weights for a while. Then I came to realize, it was the new seat on the instructor spin bike. What a crazy thing, right? I’m glad to report things are ok now, not hurting so bad.
Most importantly, this week while sitting on that instructor bike, I returned to full sweat band mode. I’ve been wearing hats lately but nothing does the job like a sweat band. How do I look?
Like I said, I returned to Group Power. The biggest mistake I make is laying off the weights when I get into marathon time. It’s a mistake for me because sometimes I’ll run 2-3 marathons very close together which means I’m laying off the weights for an extended amount of time. I will not make that mistake again. I’ll keep going in between but maybe just going with lighter weights. I aim to have 3 days a week of strength training, but I’m winning if I get in 2 days. I do full body on both of those days. I think everyone should strive for two days a week. Are you getting your strength training in?
I hope you enjoyed this light hearted day on the blog and this week’s Five Things Friday.
I really want to know, do you like red apples or green apples? Let me know in the comments.
