Fireworks didn't happen on the 4th, but they were AWESOME on the 5th! We went out on the boat around sunset, which was beautiful in and of itself.
This week was another failed week of training. I did get in a 3-mile run on Tuesday, but other than that, no exercise happened.
So, let's talk about how I'm planning to make this week a VERY successful training week.
- Scheduling workouts in my planner-I LOVE to check things off my to-do list, so putting them in my planner will be good motivation for me.
- Bringing gym clothes with me to summer school-I'm teaching summer school, and on days when I plan to do a treadmill run/workout on my own, I'll stop by the gym on the way home. So much easier, since the gym is on my way home!
- Signing up for a race--So that I'll actually get in my long run, I signed up for the Suck it Up Buttercup 10K on Sunday morning! The race is nearby, I'm excited to try another 10K, AND I'll FOR SURE run 6 miles (hopefully I'll continue on for another mile or two after it's over, too) for a long run. Plus, that race shirt is going to be adorably awesome!!
Question for you: What did you do for the 4th of July? How do you plan for a successful week of training?
