Honestly, I couldn’t stop sweating after yesterday’s run. It wasn’t even that hot, but very damp, it felt like a swamp out there. Yuck!
So, yesterday was the first time I worked out since Sunday’s race. It was due to a combination of being sick and lack of motivation. I almost wanted to skip yesterday’s run, too, but thankfully co-worker and running mate Rob ‘forced’ me to join him for another Friday Lunch Break Run.
- Distance: 3.85 miles (6,2 km)
- Time: 44:00 minutes
- Average pace: 11:25 min/mile
- Feeling: Steamed
It feels so strange that I consider this a short run! Only a few months ago, I couldn’t imagine running almost four miles and calling it a ‘short and easy’ run. Isn’t it amazing how perspectives change?!
This morning we went to a local farmer’s market and bought a ton of fresh fruit and vegetables and some awesome bread. I love that place! I’m determined to turn this into a weekly habit. The produce is insanely cheap, too!
And now it’s time to get busy in my kitchen. A few days ago I got a new book, Peas and Thank You by the amazing Mama Pea! Which recipe should I make first? I think it will be something sweet. Cookies, maybe? We’ll see.
Have a great weekend!

Yikes! My workout recap for July is so late! The past few days I’ve been literally knocked out by some kind of stomach bug. I’ll spare you the details.
Back to the workouts! July was a great month for me! I’ve continued my strength circuit training at the gym, I achieved some personal distance records, and even ran my first 6 mile race.
- 9 times
- Total distance: 35.1 miles (56,5 km)
- Total time: 6:28:45
- 2 times
- Total distance: 10.5 miles (16,9 km)
- Total time: 40:00
- 6 strength workouts (3:45 hours)
No Pilates this month because of Summer Break. Meh! My Pilates class is the only reason I’m looking forward to October.
I’ve been really consistent with my strength training last month. I don’t really see or feel any changes, but I still want to believe they’re happening.
There wasn’t much biking in July. The weather was exceptionally nasty. Oh well, you can’t get them all.
This month I’ll try to keep up with my workout schedule, but there’s some very stressful personal stuff going on in my life right now, so I’m not sure how many workouts I will be able to squeeze in.
