Weekly Wrap 02

Happy Monday, another week has come and gone already.  It was a busy, exhausting week over here.

On Tuesday, Crossfit kicked my hamstrings!  We did front squats, followed by weighted lunges, followed by a run … oof!

I woke up sore on Wednesday.  The kind of sore where even laying in bed doesn’t feel so good.  It was hot and very humid, but I made it out to the track/trail.  I did 3 miles, with the first 2 miles being primarily 30/90 second sprints and recovers and the last mile nice and slow.

On Thursday we ~finally~ close on our former house. Because of the timing, I missed crossfit and was not even sad.  After driving way across town to sign some paperwork, we came home, took a nap, and went out to a fancy dinner at Uchiko.

Here’s a few of things I poorly captured from our night out – they were delicious!

rice bow

onigiri • scallion • pickled lotus root • ajitsuke tamago


japanese yellowtail • ponzu • thai chili • orange supreme

jasmine cream

jasmine cream • cilantro granita • pineapple honey

On Friday morning, I was destined for a meeting in San Antonio with a coworker.  I planned to get up early and run, but I was still tired and sore, so I didn’t.  Whomp whomp.  But I did talk with my coworker who does crossfit with me (it’s a work sponsored thing) and he said that everyone was sore and grouchy and had actually talked to our coach.  Apparently Tuesdays and Thursdays are leg-focused days, but our coach said he could modify for us, since we are not the typical class (let’s be real, we’re all 30+ [or in some cases, 30++] year olds with desk jobs and we call ourselves the fat-kids class).  So I’m hoping a shakeup reinvigorates me.

Saturday, I napped.  Twice.  But we did a lot of walking around the neighborhood.

On Sunday, I struggled on my long run.  Even keeping my heart rate low, I just didn’t want to keep running.  I mentioned on my instagram how it went, but I ended up running 6.2 total miles and walking 5 additional miles. I ended stronger than I started, so I’m calling it a win.

With all the stress of the last few months (buying/selling/moving/changes at work/etc) that I’m just a little run down.  But I woke up this morning feeling reinvigorated and ready to jump back in.

I’ve been going over the 80/20 training plans and have decided to really commit myself to half marathon training.  I picked a date of 12/25 as a ‘race date’ and though I won’t really race on that day, it should be a good day for me to go for a nice long run and see if I can’t set a personal PR or you know, just have fun.  (I love running on holidays)

I’ll be jumping in on week 4 of the plan, but I’m doing the Level 1 plan and have a pretty solid base (this week notwithstanding), so for tomorrow I’ve got my Fast Finish 4 run programmed into my phone, we’re expecting an overnight cool front and I’m ready to enjoy this fall season!

  1. How fun to pick the holiday as your half marathon goal day! I love running around our neighborhood that time of year and seeing all the holiday lights. Buying/selling/moving are so very stressful! I hope you are feeling more settled now. Thanks for linking!
