Manic Monday – 11/02/15


What Was Planned vs. What Happened

Monday 10/26/15: Body Pump or short run 3.86 Miles @ 9:50 pace
My gym buddy just had a procedure done on her shoulder and isn’t allowed to Pump for a week, so I decided to go for a run after work. It was a beautiful, chilly evening, and I felt AWESOME for this entire run. And I continued to feel AWESOME all evening afterwards.

Tuesday 10/27/15: Short run 3.86 Miles @ 9:42 pace
I ran the exact same route I ran on Monday, and I ran it almost 30 seconds faster, so I’ll call that a win! I also stretched out really well when I got home, and did some squats and resistance band exercises for my glutes/hips. I’m trying to be better about recovery stuff now that I have a marathon on the menu for 2016.

Wednesday 10/28/15: Tap class Tap Class
Not much to say except I’m still loving tap class, and I’m hoping to continue classes in the summer. After class, I did some squats and resistance band exercises for my glutes and hips as well. I’m trying to do them every day.

Thursday 10/29/15: Rest | Rest
Our United Way campaign wrap up event went until 6, and then I had to help clean up, so I missed both Sh’Bam and my run club speed workout, which was a bummer.

Friday 10/30/15: Short Run Rest
What can I say except it was the Friday before Halloween, and I hadn’t yet watched Hocus Pocus. I bought a bottle of wine and watched The Worst Witch, Hocus Pocus, and Halloweentown. It was wonderful.

Saturday 10/31/15: Run club 4 miles Run club 4 miles
The weather was perfect, and it was a great group. My Garmin didn’t find a sattelite before we started so my pacing was off, but I felt really good the whole run, and finished 4 miles in a little over 40 minutes.

Sunday 11/01/15: Rest Rest
We had two Halloween parties on Saturday night, so Sunday was a quiet day at home. We watched 4 Disney movies and some Sherlock before an early bedtime.

I only have four days of work this week, and on Thursday night I’m off to DISNEY WORLD for the Wine and Dine Half Marathon. I have a TON of stuff, both personal and professional, to accomplish before then, so this will likely be a light week of workouts.

  • Monday: Maybe Body Pump, maybe a run, maybe nothing
  • Tuesday: Short Run
  • Wednesday: Tap Class
  • Thursday: Rest
  • Friday: Rest/explore Disney
  • Saturday: Wine and Dine!
  • Sunday: Rest

Who else will be in Disney this weekend???

    Nice job running the same route faster the very next day! That’s awesome. Also, props for doing stretching and band work… I definitely need to get better at that.

    Also, totally random but I was at the cafe near my office last week and Manic Monday came on the radio. That song makes me think of your blog now! 🙂
