Joe and I had a very fun Friday night, which led to a slow-moving Saturday :-x But, we still enjoyed each other company laying around and catching up on our DVR'd stuff.

Since you know what's going on this next week, let's talk about this past week of Best Body Bootcamp!
Tuesday-4 mile run. I was listening to a new playlist, which made this run seem to fly by!
Thursday-75 minute yoga class at the gym. It really helped stretch out my muscles!
Friday-4.17 mile run with a run 7.5 mins/walk 1 min pattern. I also did some core work for Sneakers and Fingerpaints' August Core Focus Challenge (you can still sign up if you're interested!).

Sunday-Once again, planning on a long run if these storms will ever stop! If not, I'm going to do Workout B and get the long run in tomorrow.
Highlight of the Week
I actually listened to my body during my workouts this week, and I can see the benefits of doing so! A few examples:
- On Wednesday, after my 2-mile run outside, I was so hot and sweaty and didn't want to do Workout A at my neighbor's outdoor gym. Instead, I grabbed some weights from her house and completed the workout inside with the AC and a ceiling fan blasting. Perfect! (I, of course, promptly returned the weights afterward! :) )
- Thursday, I'd planned on running but knew my legs couldn't handle it. Yoga was the perfect workout as a substitute! It really made my legs feel so much better afterward, and I think it would be a great addition to my weekly workouts.
- On Friday, I ran at 11 am on a route with minimal shade. Instead of pushing myself too far, I decided to walk for a minute after running for 7.5 minutes. This pattern kept me going the entire way, and I didn't feel incredibly worn out at the end.
I met both of my goals 5/7 days this week. My first goal was to eat 2+ servings of fruit each day, and my second goal was flossing at bedtime. Neither goal particularly excites me, which leads me to believe that I need to pick new goals for this week!
Question for you: Any suggestions for healthy goals I should aim for this week? What was your workout highlight of the week?
