Weekly Wrap 75 How about some Blues?
Well, I really thought I’d be sharing with you how my race went, telling you I survived the cold and sharing pictures with that awesome medal with the cool guitars hanging from my neck…. I am singing quite a different tune this afternoon, before we get to it, in true Weekly Wrap style here is what did happen this week!
Weekly Workout Summary
I will be very glad to get back into a more routine workout week. With Monday being an observed Holiday and the weekend weather conditions this was everything but normal!
Missing Monday’s strength session, Tammy had a doozie of a circuit workout for the both of us to do on Wednesday. I suck at push ups, all the more reason to do them right? I can’t go all the way down but I did the best I could and my arms and abs both were screaming at me. To add insult to injury I accepted a 100-push up Instagram challenge. You know, since I was half way there after the circuit. 😉
Mississippi Blues Half Marathon – CANCELED
My very first race of 2017 was canceled due to weather. As I said Mother Nature really threw Mississippi for a loop when she unleashed rain, sleet, snow and threw in some of the coldest temps we’ve seen all season. It did made for treacherous conditions, to say the least. I wonderful plans to drive over to Jackson and enjoy a night and the race with my friend Teresa and her husband. I was all packed and ready and report after report came in about road conditions between here and there and they were not appealing at all! After much agonizing, I finally came to my senses and decided it just was not safe to travel and I would have to miss the race IF it was still on. It in-fact was canceled but not until after 9PM that night. SOOooo, no racing this weekend, I’m over it and my focus now is on Louisiana next weekend.
I am not finished with my “Firsts of 2016” post but I did finish and publish my Goals for 2017. One of my goals is to keep a check on how I am doing and there is no better place to be accountable than with my Weekly Wrap tribe, wouldn’t you agree?
Fitness and Running
Run – 7.44/850 Missing my half this weekend hurt my mileage for this week but it’s still way early in the game to stress over it.
Mini-Challenges – Yup, calling it a success this week with the 100 push-ups.
Post / Link up More – 3 Posts this week and I got to participate in Tuesday on the Run, Wednesday Word and Friday Five
Good for the Soul – going to continue to be up and either walk or run with my daughter every morning this week. It is good for my soul!
Planning – I have already written my Tuesday on the Run post for this week! Yay Me!!!
Maybe a little more detailed but hey doing it while I have the time.
