Sunday Runday!

Here is some real talk… Not only have I not ran on a Sunday in several weeks, I have hardly ran at all in the last 30 days. Not because I have been skipping workouts and forgetting my ultimate goal, but because of the dreaded shin splints. I’ve gotten them on and off briefly over the last 5-7 years but I was doing really well and hadn’t gotten them during my early days of training when I first started my weightless journey. I think hiking in ill fitting shoes helped. In addition to that I have an almost completely black left big toe and my right big toe is turning as well. I was hoping I could get away with lots of running and hiking without it happening, but NOPE! 

So, I took a little break from running. But I got back to it yesterday and completed a very slow 3.1 mile run. Today I did another 3.1 miles at a bit faster pace but not much, and it felt great! I missed running so much. (For any new readers visiting today, I did track/field and cross country running in middle and high school, and have completed many 5/10k’s. Up until a couple years ago I had been an avid runner and it’s always been one of my favorite forms of both working out as well as a way for me to manage the stresses of life!)

In other news, my motivation is completely returned and I couldn’t be happier about that! Hawaii and Mexico here we come! Also updated the RAM and hard drive on my Macbook pro, and I ordered a white marble cover for it and the speed is amazing! It’s like a brand new laptop. It is definitely going to help me get some of the upcoming website content created much faster. Wooooo!

This coming week will be interesting as we are headed back to Seattle tomorrow afternoon for a medical procedure that Kris is having done. The hotel has a fitness center, plus we’ll be on the waterfront so I am trying to map out a nice run if the weather isn’t bad… The first few blocks after the waterfront have some great hills! He’ll be in surgery (including pre and post op for 9 hours) so I’ll need to find some things to keep busy.

I love how easy Tone It Up makes it to plan my workouts for the week πŸ’—
Have a great week ahead! Go out an crush your goals! πŸ‘ŠπŸΌ
