Happy July 2! I sound like a broken record at the beginning of each month, but I truly cannot believe that 2017 is flying by so quickly! If I had my way, I would freeze time riiiight about now so it could be summer break forever. Alas, that’s just not possible. 🙂
Any exciting plans for 4th of July?! None here. Save for a run, there won’t be much excitement around these parts, but I miiiight have time to whip up this Red White & Blueberry Banana Split that I posted last week! If you have time, you should try it too. 😉 Also on the blog last week: a day in the life, teacher on summer break edition. Check it out.😎 On to last week’s workouts!
For my Sunday restorative workout, I did PiYo Hardcore on the Floor and a Lauren Gleisberg plank workout. Every time I do a workout that’s solely dedicated to abs I remember why I don’t ever do them. I hate working my abs in isolation! It’s boring and I’d rather do just about anything else.
We had an early morning storm, so I thought I was going to forego my outdoor run, but the rain stopped just in time. My pup wanted to go so badly so I decided to take her with me and immediately regretted it. It was reminiscent of this day and we were back at the house within .75 mile. I finished the run on the treadmill. I also got in an upper body workout.
Leg day! Squats, deadlifts, wall sits, box jumps. So much fun! I’m glad I got it out of the way early, because later in the day I started feeling bad. Stomach cramps, bloating, and yuckiness. I spent most of the evening laying in the floor trying to stretch out as long as I could.
I had three miles and abs scheduled, so I hopped on the treadmill early. I got about a mile and a half in and had to stop. The cramps were killing me so I spent the rest of the day on the couch catching up on the last ever episode of Pretty Little Liars and then starting the series over from the beginning on Netflix. I’m thankful I have the summer to waste away on the couch on a sick day.
I posted my (tentative) training schedule for the first five weeks of Run Disney Wine & Dine Half Marathon Training. By the end of the day, I had already decided to make some changes and have even made a few more since then. Ugh… I haven’t even started training yet and I’m already stressing myself out over it. Woohoo!
Rest day. I felt a little better, but still not great.

I finally felt better Friday morning, so I got up early to do some upper body and abs. After my husband left for work, I got in a run. The combination of the heat, humidity, and a few days laid up on the couch made me awfully slow.
It took me quite some time to get moving on Saturday, but by midmorning I was able to fit in a total body workout followed by some extra abs.
I hope you hang around the blog this week for all the fun stuff coming up! Tomorrow, I’m discussing goals for July and a check-in on June, what I’m “Currently…” up to, and a super easy messy bun tutorial. I promise, you don’t want to miss it! 😉
