Happy St. Patrick’s Day! Did anyone else struggle to get up on time this week? I definitely felt like I was still dragging when my normal alarm went off in the morning; it took until Thursday for me to get in a morning work out again! I’m trying to add in push ups to my work out because my brother has been convincing me over the last few weeks that pushing ourselves up is a skill we need for the rest of our lives. I could only took 6 in a row at Christmas, so this is improvement!

  • Sunday: 55 minutes Pilates, 2:30 planks, 24 push ups (!!), 2.88 mile walk
  • Monday: REST, 2:30 planks, 24 push ups (!!)
  • Tuesday: 1.5 mile walk (I worked 14 hours this day, so the walk was great to move a bit!)
  • Wednesday: REST
  • Thursday: 7.55 mile bike ride
  • Friday: 30 minutes of pilates, 2:30 planks
  • Saturday: 7.5 mile run!

Now official weight training session, but I got in pilates, and the planks and push ups also counted towards that! This was truly a crazy week working time and a half, and the entire week I felt like I wasn’t really working out at all. Seeing it all written out like this, though, I realize that I actually did a lot more then I thought I did. I’m pretty sure this accounts for my fairly low stress despite how much work I’ve had to do. Phew!

We’re just under two months away from the race, and my runs have been feeling great. I actually wish the race was in 2 weeks, because I’m a little worried that I’ll end up getting injured between now and then. But, overall, my runs have been great fun recently.

Now it’s your turn to share! How was your St. Patrick’s day? Do you celebrate?
