The blog had its 2 year anniversary this past week!!! Whhhaaaat!!! It’s crazy that it’s been that long already! I love my little corner of the inter-web-google-space! But sometimes, I really need some time off. In the 2 years i’ve had this space, I’ve never taken a full week off. I didn’t blog or even think about blogging last week. I didn’t actually go anywhere, but it was a terrific mental break. The only think that I kept up with on social media was my Instagram account.
Sooo. I’ve been running a lot! And I just finished week 7 of BBG! 7 weeks go fast, let me tell you. I’ve seen so much progress in my body, it’s pretty cool. I haven’t skipped a single workout–that’s kind of a big deal.
Monday: No running, BBG Legs. SO ridiculously sore after this leg workout! Tuesday: 7 tempo miles at half marathon pace, 6 miles at an avg of 6:57. No cooldown because I ran out of time!
Wednesday– 8 miles easy, but it was disgustingly gross outside. I could have hopped onto my treadmill, but it was one of those days that I couldn’t wrap my head around the idea.
Thursday-BBG Full Body, 4 miles-1 mile warmup, 3 miles of 400s at the track with splits of 1:33, 1:30, 1:28, 1:26, 1:26, 1:26. My schedule called for more 400s but I was tired and the heavens opened up with crazy downpours and thunderstorms.
Friday-19 mile long run on the Baystate Marathon course. The night before my run, I was SUPER excited to wake up and go. Once I started running, I realized how sore I still was from my 400s at the track. The 2 hours and 42 minutes might as well have been 6 hours-it just felt like it wasn’t going to end, ever. BLA.
(refueling after my long run! This beer is excellent, by the way!)
Saturday-4 miles, 29:59. BBG Arms/Abs. Week 7 complete! I”m obsessed with my 2 new skirts form Skirt Sports. (use SSGWR20 to save 20%!)
Razz and Safari print! So cute!
Sunday: 9 easy miles!
Total: 51 miles for the week!
And some picture randomness for you! This upcoming week is going to be a toughie. Mile repeats, a progression run, and a long run that has half of it at MGP. Naturally, I have food on the brain. Roast chicken dinner for Sunday night and it was AMAZING.
Saturday afternoon we celebrated my niece’s birthday with a mother daughter froyo date to Orange Leaf…AND..it was in the Orange Leaf Limo! My girl knows how to celebrate in style! 🙂
Do you think she was excited??
I hope everybody had a wonderful weekend! Tell me something fun that you did! 🙂
