Did this week take forever for anyone else? I know it just seemed to drag for me! I am so ready for the weekend. My boyfriend and I have another weekend full of furniture shopping ahead of us. We’ll be checking out all the places we couldn’t get to last week. It’s fun, but exhausting for sure. On a bright side he got the house today! After a three month short sale he finally got the key to the house in his hand on Tuesday. It’s an exciting time!
Onto my non scale victories
- I ran three times this week! Three to four times a week tends to be my sweet spot with running. I may increase that frequency eventually but for now that’s where my body performs at its best.
- I ran 7.5 miles on Tuesday! That is the furthest I have ever run and I am so so proud of myself! I went into that run with the intention of pushing myself. I did, was successful and after was exhausted! More about this run on Monday, but until then check out my cool down with my new compression sleeves and Gilmore Girls.
- I’ve started incorporating some cross training exercises in my routine. I downloaded, and am using, a few Runtastic apps on my phone (specifically situps, push ups and squats) I found out about them on Run Salt Run. Plus I’ve been doing a lot more stretching. I actually am attributing this change to the reason I was able to run 7.5 miles. My legs and core are already feeling much stronger.
As always post your non scale victories below, I love reading them! I know I didn’t post as much this week. I was trying to incorporate more running into my routine and writing took a back seat. I promise to be back at it next week! Anyways, have a great weekend!
