Monday Check In

21 Apr

Okay — so last week I set some goals with the hope that whatever had gone wrong with my leg on Saturday would be “cured” by Monday. So I decided to check in here and re-set for the week. And, as always, a couple of random thoughts near the end!

It wasn’t *completely* better but good enough for me to take a shot at things.

So, on the Plank Challenge:
I only got Day 10 and Day 11 done 😦

plankPlank Challenge  this week:
Day 12 – (4 sets of 45 seconds)
Day 13 – (3 sets of 60 seconds)
Day 14 – (4 sets of 45 seconds)
Day 15 – (3 sets of 60 seconds)
Day 16 – Rest Day
Day 17 – (2 sets of 90 seconds)
Day 18 – (3 sets of 60 seconds)

Did a wee bit better on the Wall Sit Challenge:
I got days 10, 11 and 12 done :/

wall sitWall Sit Challenge this week:
Day 13 – (130 seconds)
Day 14 – (140 seconds)
Day 15 – (150 seconds)
Day 16 – (160 seconds)
Day 17 – (170 seconds)
Day 18 – (180 seconds)
Day 19 – (190 seconds)

Running mileage? Well, I got a lot of walking miles in – for a total of 15. There was a little jogging but not too much 😦

Mileage Goals for this week:
Tuesday – 2.5 miles
Wednesday – 2.5 miles
Thursday – 2.5 miles
Saturday – 5 miles
Sunday – Running the Glastonbury River Run 5K (3.1 miles)

So the lesson I’ve learned here is that it’s really pretty embarrassing to have to report how much I *didn’t* do this week! And I’d really rather not have to do the same next Monday so…let’s just get to it shall we?!! (And of course by “we” I mean “me!)

Happy Boston Marathon Monday!! Tune in and see some amazing people conquering an amazing event!!

    I totally need to get up off my arse. This is why I DON’T put goals out there. I don’t wanna hear about it. 🙂

    I feel like I need to start posting a Weekly “check in” to hold myself accountable…I’ve been slacking A LOT lately! But hey, you’re getting out there and doing something and that’s all that matters!

    I nominated you for a Liebster Award…check out the details on my blog 🙂

    Even though you didn’t get much running in, you did great with your strengthening activities!

    That’s one of the reasons I blog, to give me extra motivation not to just quit all together when I’m not feeling it! We all have bad weeks, you’ll do awesome this week!

      That was my initial intent too!!
      Thanks for the vote of confidence
