The past week had been a lot better than July, but I knew my fuse was still short. Some people just know how to push buttons, and I didn't want to be set off after making it through to August. My Garmin arrived Thursday, and I've been having fun playing with the new features. Thursdays are a little tough staying motivated, and I skipped the gym. Instead, I did a Jillian Michaels workout, plus a little bit of Pure Barre, and I had DOMS even on Saturday morning.
Even though the weather was cooler Saturday morning, I didn't get outside to run. Since I slept until 7, I was moving a little slow that morning. I didn't want to rush through breakfast, so I opted for the gym, and I pounded out 2.5 miles. I'm up to 6.7 and 6.8 for my running intervals, and I haven't had those speeds in years. The treadmill always seemed a struggle at those speeds, but the faster cadence makes it a lot easier. I keep increasing the speed once I start running into the control panel. Then I did some Pure Barre for my seat Saturday afternoon. I'm starting to feel like a pro with two workouts Saturday and Sunday.
Sunday I had a morning appointment, so I didn't get to bike, but I did some strength training before the appointment, while watching Worlds, and then I did a quick upper body PB workout after lunch. I noticed Saturday my arms were tired with my faster speeds, and I need to be consistent with upper body strengthening too. In between those, I got dinner in the crock pot since the temps are much cooler at the moment, and I was watching the women's marathon. I'm so happy for Amy Cragg!
