Mini Trip Time
We made it through another week and are almost halfway through one of the weirdest years (at least in my lifetime). This was a different week- Dan and I went camping and got to be completely secluded for a few days (super nice), and I turned 30. Here's how the week looked with workouts-
45 min Pop Fun Run with Olivia
Started my week off on the right foot by waking up early for a pre-work run. It was SO humid (registered at 100% in my weather app) and I was really feeling it. There were lots of fast pickups in this run, and I did about half of them and just tried to keep moving. It was definitely a struggle bus run, but I made it through.
30 min WHM Celebration Ride with Leanne and Hannah
One of my friends posted about doing this Women's History Month ride in the evening and I had nothing better to do so I joined in. It ended up being an uplifting and really fun ride with two super fun, British instructors. I love how Leanne and Hannah both picked each other up and were a blast together! The playlist was full of woman-power songs as well, so I enjoyed this ride a ton.
20 min Desmond Child Flow with Aditi
Some yoga to start off the day and listen to some great classic songs written by Desmond Child. It's definitely harder for me to do yoga in the morning- I feel so stiff- but it helps me feel better throughout the day.
30 min Intervals and Arms with Alex
I think Alex is my favorite instructors..which I know is a common sentiment. He's just so motivational and puts it all out there- nothing he says or does seems fake or put on, which I really appreciate. He's awesome and this ride was a lot of fun.
45 min Rock Fun Run
3 hour Kayak
15 mile Bike
There's a paved bike path that goes along the lake shore for about 7.5 miles, so we went out and back for my longest ever bike ride. It was really fun and the views were incredible! I was enjoying the ride so much that I didn't even take pictures, but just trust me that it was gorgeous.
3.5 mile hike
30 min Dolly Parton ride with Robin
We got home a little after lunchtime, and after resting up I jumped on the bike to join this live class. I love Dolly, and this was a great class to just loosen up my legs and sing along to amazing songs. Luckily for me, Robin played Jolene twice (once as the original and once as a techno remix). Fun class!
6 mile Run
5k Time Trial + 1 mile warm up and cool down
30x30 list, you might know that one of my goals was to run a race every year for my birthday. Since races aren't currently a thing (my half marathon is officially off as of this week) I decided to go back to my high school cross country course and do a time trial. It was rough and humid and tough (and I questioned why I was doing it many times) but I finished and had a decent time of 26:04. I'll take it! On the note of my 30x30 list, I'm officially 30 now and some of my plans to cross of the last few items got derailed in the last few months...but onward and upward.
20 min flow with Kristin
Great stretches in this one, especially right after my run. Didn't really feel like a yoga class, more like a flowing stretch class. I liked it!
How was your week?
Are you doing any time trials or virtual races?
Happy Birthday! Nice work on your time trial. I'm signed up for a virtual 5K next week and as much as I want to make it a time trial, I just don't have the motivation to push hard for 3 miles, so it's gonna be a fun run (that's okay, the race itself would have been a fun run!).ReplyDelete
I guess this just means your 30 before 30 list will have to become 40 before 40? ;-)
Thanks! And good luck in the virtual race- it really is hard to push with not a lot of motivation so enjoy yourself. At this point I feel like I just need to make a bucket list haha - no more numbers!Delete
