Planned: 4/11 – Friday: rest day before traveling to Austin tomorrow
Total Miles: 16.2
Happy Friday!!! Endorphins have definitely been my friend this week as I’ve had a pretty hectic one! Life’s never about running away from the difficult, but coping with it in a positive way sure makes it easier to tackle! Running: Since we’re prepping for the 1020 this coming Sunday in Austin (10 miles and 20 stages of entertainment in ATX!) and after the Race for Sight race this weekend, I’ve just taken things easy. I have no reason to ‘speed’ train or push myself too hard. I also wanted to give myself the chance to run because I wanted to and not because I had to – reconnect with it persay?
Beachbody workouts: I’ve done a hybrid of Insanity and T25 and Turbofire now for some time and just added in some 21 Day Fix workouts. Since I do like more high intensity workouts I’ve stuck to mixing it with my standing workouts as an added bonus. Yes, I have workout A.D.D. 😉 21 Day Fix: I happened to choose a time when I had some challenges with sweets cravings in the middle of my 21 Day Fix – Optimum timing! However, I didn’t try to deprive myself all while working on results simultaneously. I bought TJ’s super dark chocolate and let myself snack here and there on it. I kept to my proper amount of color coded meals and portions all but one day each week while increasing the workouts past 30 minutes a day in a hybrid with my other Beachbody workouts. I’m seeing composition changes and haven’t weighed myself – progress WILL be made!
We are BY NO MEANS RACING this race. Hubby has the onset of Plantar Faciitis – THUMBS DOWN – and hasn’t been able to run much. I want to actually stop and LISTEN to the bands playing because that’s what Austin is ALL about! I’ll be sure to INSTAGRAM and SHARE our Race and Vacation moments for sure!
How do you mix up different workouts within your week? Do you have Workout A.D.D. like me??
