Weekly Wrap - Apr 8

Linking up with Holly and Wendy for the Weekly Wrap. Be sure to stop by their blogs to see what everyone else was up to last week.

I'm happy to report that April is off to a great start! I'm on track with all of my goals, the weather has been perfection. Life is good!

Weekly Wrap

Workouts


I'm pretty proud of my workouts last week. I got in 3 runs. I haven't missed a day of Rachels' challenge. I only missed one day of my Quick Hit challenge. I pushed myself out of my comfort zone and attended Silent Savasana.

Weekly Wrap - April 2-8
One round = Streak Cred
Two rounds = Bada$$
Three rounds = Ninja

Getting used to 3 runs a week is going to take a week or so. By time Saturday rolled around, I was done. My legs were tired and my pace overall was a bit slower this week. Also, my right ankle has been bothering the past few days. I'm not ready to blame the running yet, though. 😜

We actually took Sallie for a walk Monday evening. Every week, I say how we should take her for more walks, but we rarely take her more than just a quick potty.

@EnjoytheCourse wants to know how your workouts went last week! April is off to a nice strong 💪 start! #weeklywrap

I got in my 3 yoga practices. 2 on YouTube and 1 in person. You can read more about my experience at Silent Savasana at the Ultimate Coffee Date.

Yoga for Flexibility - 16 min - Yoga with Adrience
Yoga for Beginners - 52min - Five Parks Yoga ↠ If you're new to yoga, this was a great practice! She was very descriptive of the moves. About 22 min in there was a surprise visitor. Luckily, I think we were in child's pose. :)

  1. How's the shift to forefoot running going? Is that why the 3 runs per week were kind of tough? I can't imagine how hard it would be to adjust my stride.

    1. I think it's going well! In March, I was only doing 2 runs per week, so I think my legs/body are just adjusting to the additional pitter-patter. Plus I've been doing a ton of jumping jacks in April and other exercises, too that make my legs tired.

  2. I don't think April has started out too well here. Well weather wise. It has been chilly and has not been feeling like spring lately. Great job getting your workouts in.

  3. I had a successful 6-miler this weekend, and April looks like a fun month.

  6. Great job on the three runs like week, in addition to your challenges. I enjoy Five Parks yoga too. She is pretty easy to follow for someone like me who doesn't do yoga that often. I need to take our dogs on more walks. There just doesn't seem to be enough time for everything. Thanks for linking!

    1. LOL! I'm still opting for some burpees in Rachel's challenge. :) Yoga makes me feel strong. :)

  8. Glad to hear that April is off to a strong start! Getting your runs up to 3 days a week will take a little bit to adjust and then it'll be routine before you know it!
