Fitness Friday - First Week of May

Are you ready for the weekend? I sure am. :) It's been a long week.

DOMS + period + sore throat = Clarinda's down for the count.

I called in sick Wednesday. It was kind of nice to have a mid-week respite, but being sick wasn't so fun. :( Despite being sick, we are still on track for our Sexy for Summer challenge. whoo hoo!

In April, I tried doing a weekly review of my fitness goals, and, unfortunately, I wasn't very consistent. Sometimes, I just have difficulty blogging on Sundays. I want to be outside or lounging and spending time with Jeff.

So, for May, I decided to move my weekly reviews to Fridays. Of course, I didn't decide that until after last Friday, so here's a look at what I've done since May 1st.

Still not perfect, but there are a few less frowny faces out there.

I know, I know.
I didn't commute once this week. 
Partly, I was lazy. 
Partly, I was sick. 
Mostly, the crappiest section of my bike route is being re-paved this week. (yay!) With the re-paving, that section was closed, and I'd be forced to bike on roads with heavier traffic, so for safety sake, I chose to drive.

Any fun weekend plans? I'm doing a Girls Night with a few friends! I've been looking forward to it for a couple weeks now, so tonight can't get here fast enough.

And for fitness? Since I only ran once this week, I'd like to get in some speed work and maybe 9-10 miles. Not sure which to do on which day. What do you suggest?

  2. It's definitely nice to have a mid-week day off, but not when you're under the weather. Hope the repaving is done quickly - that'll be great when it's complete.

    1. Yeah. That part sucked. :(
      The repaving is done, but they didn't actually repave the worst section. Booo.

  3. I would love to be able to commute but I live 50 miles away from my job. That's just a little too far. It'll be great once they get that repaved for you.

    Have fun with the girls. Hope your completely over your illness.

    1. Yes, 50 miles might be a bit far. Of course, I doubt I'd even drive that far for a commute. :)
