Well this past week has been tough. There was some major emotional/family drama going on in my house – that which I’m not delving into here, but know that it altered the adults-only plans for the weekend and had me in tears on many occasions. So with that said, here’s my adherence to my goals for the challenge.
1. Running – 3-4 days a week – I ran Thursday, Sunday, Monday and Tuesday – Sunday I ran my 9 miles outside. I almost flaked on it too. I was tired from the time change and I didn’t want to. And it was super windy. And halfway through the toes in my left foot cramped up when I stopped at a red light. Cramped up to the point I had to take my shoe off and rub them. It was very bizarre because when I was running they were find; it was only when I stopped. So I’m upping my intake of bananas and electrolytes. I also cut my 6-miler short by a mile yesterday because I mentally did not have it in me to continue. But I’m okay with that.
2. Nike Training Club – Okay. I did better this week. I got one ab workout done and then I cursed myself for not doing it more because my abs? They hurt.
3. 100 Pushup Challenge – Yep. Done and done. Though on Monday my last set was of 20. I made it to 15 and had peck failure. So I had to stop for 10 seconds and then do the last 5. Yeowch.
4. Increase Water Intake – Well. Mmm. I can’t honestly say I got in consistent water this week. Although I should have drank more; crying is not only exhausting it’s dehydrating. I’m going to try and get back on the horse with my water this week.
So overall I hit my goals. I “substituted” NTC for less water. It all evens out, right? And I have some fun news about the Tough Mudder event I talked about last week, go read over here all about it!!
I think, Bari did pretty good on her goals too – though we both had a few moments of needing the other to be a drill sergeant. But that’s why we’re a team. To kick each other’s ass when needed.
