Tuesday~ I woke up to go for a bike ride to the gym and then to workout. Great plan I thought. It was down pouring! Rats. foiled again!!! Oh well. Nothing an early morning trip to Meijer won’t cure! I had all intentions of buying a cinnamon roll as big as my head and then going home and warming it up and eating it all by myself ( not sharing with the kids cuz they would still be asleep, and because I didn’t want to. Get your own. Dang kids.) while I watched the Bachelorette. I know, it sounds like the most perfect way to start the day since the rain nixed my exercise plans). Well, I never did get that cinnamon roll. Some dude
employee would not get out-of-the-way. I was not in the talking mood and uttering the words “excuse me” just weren’t about to happen. Oh well, it’s probably for the best and Meijer cinnamon rolls aren’t thatgood. I might have to make a stop at Panera soon.
Later on the kids and I headed to the track so Amara could run some laps. She has a 5k this weekend and has not been training. It’s not her fault. It was already hot out, but she completed almost 1.5 miles. Miles ran too. He had on jean shorts – poor kid. He was so hot, but would not stop running. He had to make sure he was in front of Amara the whole time. He thought they were racing. I ended up doing 100 walking lunges (50 per leg) on the track while the kids ran. I was going to do some more stuff, but it was hot! 🙂 I had fun though watching the kids do their thing.
I attempted going for a run last night with RunGr. I knew before I got to the meeting place that I was going to skip out. My lungs were feeling super heavy as the humidity was sky-high. And then the thunderstorms and lightning and flash floods really let me know that I would not be running. So.Much. Rain.
So Tuesday was basically a day off for me. I realized that I did not take any last week and I could tell. Tired.
Wednesday~ It’s my turn to teach the 6 am M and M class at the Y. We did circuit training today. The class is 45 minutes long and I guess I was having so much fun I did not realize the time. Class was supposed to be over and we were on our final round of push ups. oops! I still had a few more exercises planned, but had to end class cuz it was over!! Duh. The class got a kick out of it though and I think some hoped I would finish off the hour. **I take back my statement of Tuesday being an off day. 50 walking lunges. I was reminded of these when I hopped out of bed…….
Spin at 10 am. I thought today was going to be a race day, but since July has 5 weeks it will have to wait until next week ( good!). The class had to settle for an interval class. It went fast for me today for some reason. It was a fast paced class with not many long climbs involved.
PiYo at 11. I am still going strong with this class. I think it might finally be getting a bit easier for me. Not easy, just easier from when I began 7 (?) weeks ago. Consistency pays off I guess! 😉 Good class, great music and great company.
I think that will be it for the day, unless I get some energy and hop on my bike. If the rain stays away that is….if not I will call it a day.
On tap for Thursday: Run? Ride? Eat a cinnamon roll?
