Welcome to another edition of Manic Monday, where I recap the previous week, and set out a plan for the upcoming week.
I don’t have much to report today. As I mentioned on Friday, I haven’t run in about 2 weeks. The good news is, I’ve been keeping up with riding my bike to and from work every day, and I started a 30-day plank challenge on July 1. I haven’t been keeping up with it as much as I’d like, but it’s definitely helping to keep me a bit more active than I might be otherwise.
Biked to work (~3.8 miles), and 1 minute plank. I got a ride home from Ben because we needed to go to the grocery store.
Biked to and from work (~7.5 miles), and 1 minute 10 second plank.
Biked to and from work (~7.5 miles), and 1 minute 15 second plank. After work, I met some coworkers at a really great open air bar/club on the waterfront called Breakwaters. One of my coworkers is in a band, and they were playing. I had a couple of drinks and nibbled some sweet potato fries and nachos. Yum!
Biked to and from work (~7.5 miles), and 1 minute 25 second plank
Lots of walking and swimming at the family reunion
Lots of walking, swimming, and seafood at the family reunion 😀
Lots of driving and bad food on the way home 😦
I would do a recap of the reunion, but every day was pretty formulaic:
Wake up early because sun is shining on tent and I’m roasting. Walk 1/2 mile to pond. Swim. Walk 1/2 mile back. Coffee. Brunch. Walk 1/2 mile to pond. Swim. Walk 1/2 mile back. Snack/nap/chat/squirt gun fight/help around the farm. Walk 1/2 mile to pond. Swim. Walk 1/2 mile back. Dinner. Several beers. Rubber band war (rubber bands from lobster claws are AWESOME). Sleep. Repeat.
I’m really excited to be home. Miraculously, Ben and I get to spend the next two weekends in a row at home. We have a few activities planned, but it will be nice not to travel. I’m hoping to get back into a routine here–the last few weeks have been a bit crazy. I want to re-focus on eating better, and get back to regular running and cross-training. In tomorrow’s post, I’ll share my plan for how I hope the next few weeks will go as I decide what fall half I’ll be running.
How was your weekend?
