LoveHate and Week In Review – 10/7 – 10/12


This is the perfect name for this week in review because I was LAZY and did not workout for the majority of the week.  Yeah not good and I could tell I didn’t workout.  You know how?  I was crabby.  Crabby feeling and crabby acting to many others this past week – NOT GOOD.  When I workout (lift and run) I am much happier.  It gives me wings.  I also found some cool new songs to listen to on iTunes Radio so I downloaded those and they helped to push me through!!  Woooohooo!

Monday – 10/7

Did nothing – lazy bones!

Tuesday – 10/8

Got out there and ran with my pavement warrior sisters.  We hit up about 3.2 miles.  I am slowly but surely getting closer to my 60 mile goal!  I definitely plan to make it this month.

Wednesday – 10/9

Did nothing – LOSER I know.  LOL!

Thursday – 10/10

Was gonna run and then it was raining so I went back to bed.  Yeah not a real excuse since I have a treadmill but I just didn’t want to.

Friday – 10/11

It was still raining on this day but guess what?  I got up and did 2.3 miles on the treadmill.  My NordicTrack is brand new and I love it.  I need to up the ante though b/c the speed was TOO SLOW for my taste.  After running outdoors as much as I have been means the treadmill workouts have to be fast and furious for me to feel like I am getting in a workout.

Saturday – 10/12

My pavement warrior sister dragged me out of bed and took me to Centennial Park in Columbia, MD where we had an awesome run.  I never ran there before, just witnessed my girl’s Iron Girl Triathlon event there this past August but it was AWESOME!  Over 5 miles DONE!

Saturday was also my 11-year anniversary so we hit the town and ate a FANTASTIC dinner at the Capitale Grille.    I thought I was stylin’.IMG_1874

.

Ya see, it was a Love/Hate week for me.  I did end up picking it up near the end of the week but it would have been better if I were more consistent.  What have you been struggling with when it comes to your workouts lately?

Also, don’t forget – for the month of October we have a new challenge “Your New PR” Challenge using the Strava Cycling or Strava Run app and enter the raffle we have going on by downloading the Strava app and following ME (Diatta Harris) on the app!  Isn’t that easy?  What are you waiting on?  I would like to reach 100 raffle entries (100 followers) to make this an interesting raffle.

TOODLES!

Feel Good and Week In Review – 9/23 – 9/29


Last week was a doozy full of activity!  I believe I was active every day last week including Saturday and Sunday.  That is a record for me and not necessarily something I want to make a habit.  Between running with my Pavement Warriors, working out with trainer and running races – I burned major calories and got it in on the pavement.  Have you ever had an unusually active fitness week?  What did you do and how did you mix it up?

Monday – 9/23

I workout with my personal trainer on Mondays and Tuesdays and it was a very good workout.  I am quite sore if I do say so myself.  LOL!  I just realized I did not write down the workout.  DOH!

Tuesday – 9/24

I hit the ground running with my Pavement Sisters and we did a GOOD job.  I felt good, energetic and could have kept running but hey – gotta get home to make the donuts.  We did do a different route which kept things interesting.  Good news – I HIT the green level in Nike+ Running app.  I was so elated about that!!!

Wednesday – 9/25

Worked out with trainer and she worked me!

Thursday – 9/26

Thursday my Pavement Sister and me met up and we did a nice 3-mile easy run up and down Lakeside to Painters Mill.  It felt good, I felt strong and she was great company.

Friday – 9/27

We were running deep on Friday.  I recorded my time in Strava because I accidentally stopped and ended my run using the Nike+ app.  DOH!  I have got to do better.IMG_1682

I also headed out to pick up my race bags for Saturday and Sunday.  I haven’t done this in SO long.  It was pretty exciting.

Saturday – 9/28

Sooo we wake up early to participate in the fun run and my daughter was not having it.  I was about to leave without her but she eventually got up and dressed at 7 am!  We hit the field around 7:15 am and waited for the Fun Run to begin at 8 am.  We were told it was going to be 1 mile but actually it was more like .25 of a mile!  Oh well!

Sunday – 9/29

I went to bed fairly early and made sure I had adequate rest.  I ran a 10K for Zero Prostate Cancer Run on Sunday starting at 8;30 am and I was nervous yet excited.

Laid out my clothes the night before to make sure I was ready.
