Week of July 18 - 24

Workouts

Monday: Rest day

Tuesday: Run 2.2 miles (14:09 pace)

Wednesday: Rest day - massage

Thursday: Run 2.0 miles (14:15 pace)

Friday: Unplanned rest day - oops!

Saturday: 3 Day Rotation - weights and kickboxing (20 min each)

I've had a hard time convincing myself to do the NROLFW weights, in particular because I feel like I have to do 2 each week (not that I actually do, even once a week would be better than nothing), so if I don't do the first one early enough in the week, I just end up skipping it altogether. But I realized that this workout video I used to do (I've used it off and on since high school) sounded appealing, and I could fit it in at least once a week. I got all psyched up to do it, then remembered I'd lent the DVD to my mom... fortunately, everything's on YouTube now!

Sunday: Elliptical 20 min + stairclimber 5 min

Running is really becoming less and less appealing. My massage therapist pointed out at my appointment this week that the elliptical would probably be a good low-impact alternative, so I gave it a try. I've never routinely used one (been lucky to not have any running injuries keeping me out long enough to need to explore alternatives like this before), but it was ok. My monthly pass to the parks and rec district pools also gives me access to the rec centers with cardio rooms, so I might as well take advantage of it, and do this at least once or twice a week.

Total running: 4.2 miles
Average daily steps: 8,291
