Today is the first day of August and also the first day of the #ClassPassChallenge.The idea is that for the month of August we will try something new every single day. If you didn’t read my post on this, find it here. ClassPass also breaks it down over on their blog and gives some great ideas for each day. By participating in one or more days you can win some BIG prizes (like 3 months of ClassPass FREE!) by posting about it on Twitter & Instagram.
My Day 1 “new thing” is that I’m going to read at lunch instead of peruse my social media accounts. I am almost done with Modern Lovers, which I’m pretty unimpressed with, and I’m dying to start my next book so why not utilize my lunch break for something other than screen time? If that doesn’t happen (because work) I will go to bed an hour earlier than normal and turn off my phone completely. I need sleep and I read every night but I get into bed wayyyy too late.
I had my highest mileage week last week since prior to Boston! And I feel great!
Week 2 of Marathon/50k Training:
Monday: 6 trail miles with Ashleigh
Tuesday: 5 miles with Sheri
Wednesday: 8 miles (w/ 5 progressive miles)
Thursday: 5 trail miles
Friday: Rest day
Saturday: 12 miles with Sheri
Sunday: 4 miles (super slow, recovery)
Total: 40 miles
Notice no OrangeTheory classes this last week. I’m a little worried I won’t be able to fit it in with my training.
This weekend was pretty eventful so I’m glad I squeezed in some quality miles. I spent Saturday in Temecula celebrating Teresa’s birthday. I only had the equivalent of maybe 2 glasses of wine the whole day so I was pretty proud of myself considering we went to a couple wineries. Go me!
On Sunday I watched Brittany do her first triathlon ever! I was super proud of her. Nicole and I spectated together with baby Siena and we got to see her husband, Mike, along with Jenna who took second in her age group (that’s my training partner, y’all!). I was soooo tired so I probably wasn’t the best company or cheerleader but it was still fun.
This upcoming weekend I am headed to Big Bear for a little family vacay with Brittany, her mom and little brother. We have a cabin adjacent to the trails so I will get some good trail miles in both days and hopefully lots of R&R too because I am overdue. We’re planning to rent a boat and spending a day on the lake and then Brittany has a bike ride she’s doing on Sunday so we’ll have lots to do. It should be super fun.
Before I go, I have to announce the four winners of the ONE MONTH CLASSPASS MEMBERSHIP!
Congrats to Anais G., Emily Swartz, Mary Katherine, and Chantelle Walker!
