Weekly Recap: March Week 4


Another week over! Happy April fool’s day! My sister tries to get me every year so I have to stay alert! Anyone get anyone? I COULD be mean and trick you my precious readers, but I decided not to do that to you. :) It was a crazy one for me getting back in town and playing catch up, then catching a slight cold.  Had a blast volunteering at the Triathlon in my neighborhood yesterday. A full report to come on that maybe tomorrow or Tuesday. But today, a recap of last weeks workouts.

My workouts last week were “eh”. Coming in from out of town and getting sick didn’t help on top of trying to catch up on a ton of work. This week has got to be good…Half marathon is April 15!

Sunday: Castaway Cay 5k in the Bahamas. I will be doing a full post on this as it has changed a lot from the last time I did it.


(no I didn’t win they all said winner haha)

Monday: rest and travel day. Flew home, slept many hours.

Tuesday: Felt icky and tired, trying to get back on central time zone. Forced myself to the gym for bi’s, back, legs, and abs, as well as 15 minutes easy on the elliptical

Wednesday: rest. Sick.

Thursday: ran 2 miles in 20 minutes. Still felt icky but hoped maybe getting out would help me not feel so sluggish.

Friday: rest

Saturday: volunteered at a triathlon. Does this count as a workout? I am beat! Was supposed to long run this day, putting it off until Sunday.


run: 5 miles. lowest mileage in a lloonnggg time

yoga: 0 changed our class form twice a week to one time. So sad. I was sick the day it was offered

cross train: 1 time. oy.

weights: one time. double oy.

I am pretty unhappy with my lack of workouts this week. I know everyone has a crazy week like this, I just didn’t need it to happen so close to my race. I am starting to feel ill-prepared for it, and I know it’s going to be quite hot, I am not excited about it like I should be. Burn out maybe? This will be my last half of the season…May run a 5k or two but that’s it. I am DETERMINED to have a better week this week! Hold me accountable!

    I don’t think there is much you CAN do about a ‘bad’ workout week, except look at what caused the bad week to see how you can learn from it and better your workouts in the future. That being said though, I think you had legitimate reasons for a low volume week and here’s hoping you come back strong this coming week!

    When it comes to a bad week I try not to let it bother me. Especially if I had been as busy as you were. I try and pick out the couple of accomplishments that I did make. When the new week comes around I just try to forget about the bad week and know that it is a chance to start fresh and reach all of my goals. Try to look at a new week as a re-set button :)

    Sorry you had a bad workout week, but there’s not much you can do really, just start fresh next week. Plus, you were sick- it’s not like you were completely lazy and just chose to do nothing, you listened to your body and took it easy- there’s a difference!

    I can’t wait to read about your 5K in the bahamas! I will now want to do a Disney Cruise and go to Castaway Cay just to do this!

    You’re smart for listening to your body and resting up b/c you didn’t feel well! I bet you’ll feel stronger than ever on your workouts next week.

    I just told Jeff how the CC 5k is now more official, and he’s pumped about doing it next cruise. Can’t wait for your recap on it!

    Last week was a really bad workout week for me, the best thing I can do is put it behind me and make this coming week an awesome week!! Live and learn :)

    I think when you have a bad workout week you just need to move o and start the following week fresh!!! We all have them but it is how we move forward that matters!!

    I love the medal for the CC 5K. Very cute! Sorry you had a bad workout week, but you will be back in the swing of it next week without a problem! Good luck in your upcoming half.

    I have learned I cannot dwell on a bad workout week or I’ll never recover. I literally have to forget about it and drive on.
