Friday evening was our usual Mexican food dinner and movie night. We watched The Prestige, which I highly recommend! Very interesting movie with some great acting, including a huge twist at the end!
Today has been a low-key day of church, reading, and cleaning the house. Now, it's time for an update on how this week in Best Body Bootcamp went.
Monday: BodyPump class (sans sports bra)
Tuesday: 3-mile speedwork run with negative splits both in out-and-back and each mile. I ran 15:02 the first 1.45 miles, and 14:20 on the way back. I added a little extra at the end for a total of 3 miles. My mile splits were also negative: first mile in 10:40, the second mile in 10:14, the third mile in 9:33.
Thursday: Firecracker 4 Miler. I finished in 39:45 for an average pace of 9:56. Pretty pleased with myself! (Full race recap still to come)
Friday: rest day
Saturday: about 50 minute bike ride to and from the race tailgate
Sunday: You know how days can just get away from you? That's how today was. I meant to do a long run today as part of my half marathon training, but it just never happened. It's on the agenda for tomorrow though :)
Goal #1 was still to drink 72 ozs + of water. Today wasn't as good about the water this week, only meeting that goal 4/7 days.
Goal #2 was the same: eat two servings of fruit each day. Also a rough week as I only met this goal 3/7 days this week.
I want to meet each goal at least 5 out of 7 days. What happened this week? Well, with friends visiting and Joe coming back in town, all of the going out to eat and "fun times" were compacted into a few days. That usually messes up my healthy eating for the day, as it did this week.
Highlight of the Week
I really enjoyed my run on Tuesday. First, I was feeling proud of myself for actually getting off the couch and going for a run. Then, I was really excited about my splits, even when there was 87% humidity outside in the 80+ degree heat.
Goal for Next Week
Decrease the laziness! I'll be posting more about that this week, but I have been incredibly lazy lately. As it relates to Best Body Bootcamp, I'm resolving to have activity at least 5 days AND meet both goals 5 days this week.
Hope y'all have a great start to your week! See you tomorrow :)
Question for you: What did you do this Independence Day week to stay healthy?
