Put a Bow on It!!

20 Jul

AKA – wrapping up my week!! It wasn’t a good one ya’ll…

The Galloway plan for the week called for

Tuesday 45 minute run/walk
Thursday 45 minute run/walk
Saturday 3 miles

I will start by saying, I was lacking in motivation this week. Even starting a new DietBet on Monday couldn’t get me moving as much as I needed to…<sad clown>

Tuesday — I did this Thursday afternoon. No real reason except for laziness on my part. I did make it a full 3 miles and I did take a bit less than the scheduled 45 minutes. So, there’s that.
Thursday — So, Saturday I did the Hartford Run or Dye 5K  (recap coming!) and made the decision in the car that this would be my second 45 minute workout of the week. And I did it in about 43 minutes. And it was closer to 3.5 so…again. There’s that 🙂
Saturday — I had intentions of getting up on Sunday to do my 3. I didn’t. So, I’m adding an extra 3 miler to my goals for this week. Hoping to get it done tomorrow before I go to the doctor

And, didn’t do so bad on my other goals that I’m tracking. My non-#Dopey15 goals. But I didn’t do a tremendous job either.  I got in a Jillian workout – but something in the cardio in this workout causes my calf to feel really strained so I may make this an “extra” – once my running gets on a more steady/reliable schedule. But given the choice between doing this workout and getting in the miles — I need the miles more

I didn’t get to the hot room this week either — I know once I start back and get in THAT groove, it’ll be a piece of cake.  Again, it’s just getting started…

On the bright side, I think I am improving a little bit. I do need to work on being more consistent…So, starting a new week tomorrow and hoping for a burst of motivation!

Hoping everyone is enjoying their summer weekends! We’ve been pretty lucky weather-wise the last couple of weekends…I can only hope this holds up!!


Weekly Wrapup – Sunday Funday!

13 Jul



Week 2 is in the books —

I actually started the week writing down my goals for the week, on an index card. This included my runs and other workouts. Something to know about me is I’ve never been so great at setting goals (other than – do NOT DNF this race! so you see they’re mostly made on the fly…) I think having things written down and keeping track throughout the week helped a lot!

So let’s see what happened 🙂

The Galloway plan for the week called for
Tuesday 45 minute run/walk
Thursday 45 minute run/walk
Saturday 4 miles

Tuesday — I actually ended up doing this one on Wednesday morning. Tuesday morning whilst doing my 30-day Shred my Achilles/calf tightened up so I wanted to wait it out. It wasn’t 100% on Wed so most of my 45 minutes was walking. I threw in a few intervals to see how things felt and did alright. 3 miles.
Thursday — Did this one after work on Thursday. 3 miles again
Saturday — Saturday morning I did the Hartford Marathon Foundation Red Dress Run for Women — recap here!! Not the 4 miles on the schedule but I got out there! 3 miles (Well, 3.3 according to Map My Run
I’m 1 mile short of my Galloway goal for this week. Debating making this up tomorrow.

I also didn’t get to the Jillian/Firm workouts as much as I’d hoped but, frankly, got to them more than I have recently so that’s a win, right?

I realized a biggie this week — that getting up and getting it done first thing in the morning makes my whole day better. I am also guessing that this will help it become more of a habit than a chore!

Other than the workouts, I didn’t get a whole lot done. And I have a whole lot that needs doing!! So time to spread the motivation to other things too.

Finishing up my goals for this next week and looking forward to another great one. On my list for this week is to re-engage in some Bikram. It helps with so many areas of my life it seems kind of nuts to not go back!!

Hope you’re all making big plans for the upcoming week!!

How frequently do you set goals for yourself? Do you think it helps to write them down?
