In kicking off my birthday week I definitely did not stay on track with food. I did however manage to squeeze in four runs (even though I had hoped for five) so I stayed on track with my weekly workouts. It wound up being a little rougher week than I expected by the end as I came down with some kind of virus/cold.
Ironically four days this week I was in the 12,000 step range. That must be my lucky number for the week.
We had been traveling this weekend so Sunday wasn’t quite a day to squeeze in a workout or many steps.
Total Steps: 6,713
What better way to kick off turning 30 than a 5am 30 minute run on the treadmill?
Total Steps: 12,636
I really felt the Red Lobster I ate last night but it was still nice to get up and get going. In the end I was glad I got my run in and felt SLIGHTLY less guilty for my Red Lobster dinner.
Distance: 3.5 Miles
The food from this week has officially caught up with me. I’m struggling to get through my runs, but still hanging in there. It still feels good to be going strong three days in a row.
Total Steps: 12,231
In terms of steps, this became my weakest day of the week. We had a little man who wasn’t feeling 100% so instead of a good night sleep, we were up and down all night. I wound up skipping my run and grabbing an extra hour of sleep.
Total Steps: 5,624
Friday turned out to be an interesting day. I didn’t quite feel right when I woke up but I pushed myself to do my run anyways. After my run I had a ton of energy and was ready to go. Somewhere around 2:00 my whole body just felt like it was going to collapse. It turns out I had a low-grade fever. Needless to say I spent the rest of the night in bed.
Total Steps: 15,986
No workout planned but we spent the day in South Bend at the Notre Dame game. I more than got my steps in! Do I get bonus steps for carrying a toddler too?
Total Steps: 12,411
New Goals: Run 4-5 days this week, get back on track with food.
What are your goals for the week?
