Weekly workout wrap-up

I realised the other day I had gotten away from posting workout wrap-ups when I was doing Juneathon.  I want to keep in practice of keeping track of all of my workouts. (Mainly because I literally can’t remember what I did 2 days ago.)

Right now I am loosely following the 5k beginner plan from Women’s Running UK for my 5K on the 27th.  I’m still 10K training, and I will be writing all about that and how that’s going to go very soon!  🙂  I’m excited!

Monday:  Mini personal training session getting my squat and deadlift form checked (good!) and then a run on the treadmill!  It was a long workout!

Tuesday: Blissful rest day!

Wednesday: Walk/run

Wednesday so not very good run

I had the worst split times in weeks.  I felt really unhappy and discouraged after this run.

Thursday: Rest day where I went for a quick walk up to Uni

Friday:  A short walk to and from the GP (don’t ask)

Just a short walk

Saturday: Upper body weights

Sunday:  A very hot run!





I started Runkeeper after my Garmin, which is why the numbers don’t match up.

It was *hot*

I’ve clearly become acclimatised to the weather here when I think 73F/23C is hot.  I suppose it’s been 3 summers since I’ve experienced a hot, humid Boston summer, so it was bound to happen.

After my run, we grilled out on the lawn.  This is how grilling out occurs in Scotland.

Not what I am used to, I’m afraid!  It was good though.

This week I have a lot of work to do, a massage scheduled, a beach to visit, and runs to complete.

What are your plans for the week?

    I like how the upper body workout gets no details. We tried to hit PRs! (and sort of succeeded)

    Best Molly picture! I had a Sony laptop killed by my cat who sat lovingly on it until it overheated and died. I think the fan tried to work harder to cool it, which it couldn’t due to cat; it just got warmer and more lovely as far as he was concerned.

      I have no idea what she was doing. I was looking around for her, and that was where I found her. Asleep. She is SO strange. I don’t think she is partial to the weather at the moment, but I can’t be sure as I found her under the duvet earlier. I think she is my childhood dog reincarnated.
