Well…the heat came back this week… The mornings were in the 70-80s with high humidity…so I pushed workouts to my lunch breaks and evenings. I sure do not miss this heat…BRING THE FALL COOL!! Oh well…Mother Nature has a mind of her own (…esp in Kansas)! Ha!
Monday- Since I was unable to run out at the Konza over the weekend, I wanted to go out on Labor Day – a nice, super windy run – 6.25 miles (15,067 steps)
*check out my Insta story for #Konza fun* • • Native tall grass up to my armpits, Limestone stairway, Jumping from a skittering lizard, Screaming like a little girl when a HUGE grasshopper landed on my face, Attempting to master Mel's downhill "skip", Running through doves, Eating gravel because I wasn't paying attention to the changing trail… • • First solo Konza run – priceless ✔️ #ShokzSquad #irun4aidennicole
Tuesday- Well, I didn’t get a morning run or even take a true lunch break…so the hubs helped me out and I was able to run after work – interval run (…though cut a little short), check! – 6 miles (15,663 steps)
Wednesday- I missed my morning run due to the heat and humidity…so I made sure that I ran my 0.5 mile to and from my Power Lunch workout at the gym. (10,675 steps)
Thursday- Since I didn’t REALLY get in a run yesterday, I decided to take on the elements for a hot, humid morning run… 6.5 miles (18,151 steps)
Friday- Oh boy…what a day! I started wanting to get to the gym early and get in my recovery run before yoga…that didn’t happen, but at least I got to yoga on time! Then, I walked to the store over my lunch…1 mile for the afternoon. (8,064 steps)
Saturday- Well, not every day goes as planned – my 20-miler was only 16 and I am okay with that! I wasn’t as late to the planned parties throughout the day, so all’s well that ends well 🙂 (36,928 steps)
Lessons are learned everyday…consider myself taught today . While today is my birthday, I have other events to celebrate! . Lesson 1 : if you leave 2 hours late for a planned long run, you probably aren't going to be able to get those miles and be on time to said events . Lesson 2 : if you plan a long run on a trail route and there is flash flooding within 8 hours of your run, there will be a lot of water, mud, brush, and muddy water along your path…this slowing you down further . Lesson 3 : accept the miles as a victory in itself, even if it is less than you originally wanted . Lesson 4 : asking for help will get you home faster and less late to the party . Happy celebrations Abby!! ❤️❤️ Happy birthday to me!! #ShokzSquad #irun4aidennicole
Sunday– no workout – but somehow between “sleeping in”, no run, napping past noon, a Costco trip, and another nap until 6pm, I was able to still get in my steps… I later realized that it was because I was up until 2:30-3am the night before and a lot of those steps were probably at the bars…ha! (11,589 steps)
Weekly Miles : 36.75 workout miles (116K weekly steps; 16.5K daily steps)
1246 / 2,016 miles in 2016 (…getting closer!!)
