Week 7 of my Run Disney Wine & Dine Half Marathon Training is complete! Check out the lessons I learned this week and how I’m moving forward.
Well, I survived another week of training and workouts. I also survived the first week (well, three days) of school! Are you tired of me talking about school starting yet?! I’m sorry, it’s consumed my brain these last few weeks, haha. Nevertheless, I still took some time to check out of my teacher persona and spend some time within my “fit” persona.
I’m back to yoga Sundays! I had put PiYo on my schedule, but the day before Tone It Up did a live Instagram yoga flow, so I did that instead! There were a few rounds of upper body toning included and even my itty bitty 3-pounders had me shaking. It was definitely the most challenging home practice I’ve done in a very long time.
AM: Still on my Tone It Up kick, I did two quick total body workouts from YouTube as well as an ab workout! I did the 7 Day Slim Down Workout, Total Body Tone Up, and the abridged version of Tight & Toned Core!
I did a total body barre style workout. I’m not the graceful being, so barre is always a struggle for me. I’m just not very good at it.
The first day of school!! I knew it would be a crazy, crazy day (it was good though!), so I wanted to get my run in early. I pounded it out on the treadmill and it was much better than Monday’s run. I had just enough time to fit in a little bit of upper body as well.
Legs! Tone It Up’s Sculpt & Tone Booty routine featuring rock and roll squats.❤️❤️❤️ I also got in a quick cardio/standing abs routine! I really realized Thursday morning just how TIRED my body was from inservice last week and preparing for school to start. By the time my workout was over, I was really, really looking forward to rest day on Friday!
I got up around 5:45 yesterday morning to prepare for my 9 miler. After some oatmeal and some AdvoCare Rehydrate (or in my case PRE-hydrate 😉 ) I headed out. I was nervous since my maintenance runs for the week weren’t ideal, but all in all it was a fantastic run. I finished a bit slower than I had hoped, stopped at home halfway through to use the restroom and refill my water bottle, but still had a 10:14 average pace. The last two miles were pretty difficult, but I still had enough juice left to kick it into gear at the end.
Week 7 Miles: 16.4 Miles
Total Miles: 89 Miles
