Change in plans…

Happy Wednesday friends!  I hope you are doing well and enjoying your week!  I feel like I am still recovering from our little trip to San Antonio over the weekend.  I love to travel, but I am not a fan of the unpacking and recovery time.

I am linking up again today with Annmarie from The Fit Foodie Mama, Angelena Marie from  Angelena Marie: Happy, Healthy & Balanced , Michelle at Fruition Fitness  and Nicole from Fitful Focus for another Wild Workout Wednesday recap!  Feel free to add to the link up and join in the fun!

Thank you for all the kind words last week about changing up my distance for my upcoming race.  I talked to the race director and I am pretty sure that is what I will be doing.  My hip has just not been really happy with me plus running has just not happened the way I have planned.  I have been discovering that I kind of stink at following a training plan…I really don’t know why.  So I will be dropping from the half marathon to the 5k, and then working on getting this hip back in shape before I pick another half to run.  I am disappointed in myself a bit, and in my body, but I am trying to stay focused on the positives.

My plan from last week:
Thursday- Body pump and hopefully 2-3 miles.
Friday- Piyo and a run outside
Saturday- Walk/jog outside- 5-6 miles
Sunday- Walk/rest day
Monday- Body Pump & maybe piyo and zumba.  Depends how I am feeling
Tuesday- 2-3 miles and Zumba
Wednesday- Body pump and yoga

What went down:
Thursday- Body pump

Friday- A walk with the kiddos.  A dr appt threw the plans a little, but that happens sometimes.
Saturday- Pretty much a rest day. I was worn out from traveling.  I did walk some before we watched the Spurs play, so I did get some steps in.

Sunday- Short walk and more rest
Monday- Body Pump! When I arrived at Zumba the gym lost power so they closed and there was not class 😦

Tuesday- Biked 6.45 miles and Zumba.

Wednesday- Body pump and yoga (This was all for you Andrea!!)
img_7259Overall it was not a terrible week.  I def feel like my glutes, shoulders and triceps are getting stronger.  I was able to up my weights a bit in body pump for a few muscle groups, and the ones where I stayed the same I felt challenged but not like I was going to pass out!
I joined a little 5 day healthy heart challenge this week and getting points for workouts, sweaty selfies and eating fruits and veggies….so pretty much what I already do 😉

I am out of town again for a few days so we shall see how that works out with my training.  I hope I will stick to it better than last weekend.  Hehe

Thursday- 2-3 miles
Friday- 2-3 miles and 30 min of stretching
Saturday- Elliptical recovery 45 min
Sunday- 3-4 miles
Monday- Body Pump & maybe piyo and zumba- Gonna try this again!
Tuesday- Elliptical or bike recovery and Zumba
Wednesday- Body pump and yoga (maybe

Have a joy filled and healthy day!

      Thank you! She def needs them!

      Yes, I’ve been doing lots of hip stretches. Part of the culprit is that my hips get out of line, after a few days to a week they are up to 2.5 inches different! So lots of stretches and chiro visits.

    So sorry to hear about your SIL.
    We all have weeks where things don’t always go as planned. I try my best to plan in advance so I don’t get sidelined by things like laziness (my worst enemy!).

    So sorry about your SIL.

    Take it from someone who knows, get your hip healthy again. Weak hips led to my ITBS battle and I tell people strengthen strengthen strengthen.

    So sad about all your news. Sending prayers for your SIL.

    Wise decision about the race though disappointing. There will be other halfs.
