Run, Yoga, Run, Run, Paint

27 Aug

This last week was super sweaty and busy and I spent so much time feeling thankful for the laughs along the way.

Here were my workouts:

  • Tues: Ran 4 miles
  • Wed: Hatha 1 Yoga
  • Thu: Ran 4 miles
  • Fri: Stretched
  • Sat: Ran 6 7 miles
  • Sun: Paint Party

Some of the thoughts I had along the way:

“I did not miss waking up at this ungodly hour.” – Waking up at 4:45 AM for my Tuesday and Thursday runs

“I missed this so much!” – After those same Tuesday and Thursday runs

“Oh, this is just what I needed.” – When I realized that my Hatha yoga class was focusing on hip openers

“Oh… ow… oh… oooh…” – During my stretch session Friday

“Hmm… this was supposed to be a six-mile run, but my Garmin says seven miles.” – Checking my watch after a special new 6-mile loop… that really is closer to seven 🙂

“Glad this yoga has my back and shoulders strong.” – two hours into the paint party at my little sister’s new place

I met up with an old friend yesterday that called me “the healthiest person she knows.” While laughing I tried to explain that working out was a social event for me. Running with my ladies gives me a chance to catch up on their lives, tell shark stories and drink coffee, and it’s much healthier for us than a Happy Hour. Though the coffee I ordered after Saturday’s six seven miles would beg to differ:

The big gulp of iced coffees …

I didn’t get as far on the iced coffee as I thought I would so I stuck it in the frig for later. I may or may not be sipping on it as I type.

Tropical Storm Isaac will likely complicate my runs this week.

Granted, Isaac will be skirting by the (not-so) Sunshine State, but we’ll be getting remnant rain from it regardless. I dislike this, but I am thankful we’ll be safe. In the meantime I will continue to drag my dogs outside in the rain for their potty breaks. Hmm… I should count that as another workout.

If the rain curtails my running this week (I don’t do treadmills), I will just improvise with extra yoga and strength training where I can.

How/will Tropical Storm Isaac curtail your workouts this week?
