Hello from (somewhat) sunny Florida! Actually, there hasn’t been much sun at all, but we are still having fun. Somehow the weather becomes a focus of my blog posts more than I would like, but it was another week of strange runs for me. Once again it started out really cold, then got super windy in Baltimore. We got to Florida on Thursday night and were greeted by rain, thunderstorms, and tornado warnings. Luckily we had a nice day on Saturday, but Sunday was super windy once again.
Monday: 3.2 miles easy and core work…I felt like I just couldn’t warm up during this run! I guess that’s what happens when it feels like 15 degrees or so (I can’t remember that the temp was this day but I remember it was cold but not my coldest run of the month).
Walk: 2.3 miles Push-ups: 15
Tuesday: 4 miles easy and myrtle routine….I felt a little better than Monday but it was cold again and I was kind of lacking motivation.
Walk: 2.25 miles Push-ups: 30
Wednesday: There were severe winds so I decided to keep my workout inside. I did a strength workout using the TRX and finished up with a short yoga video.
Walk: 2.88 Push-ups: 30
Thursday: 3.6 miles and pilates video focused on hips…I was planning to do hill repeats but once I was out there I just wasn’t feeling it. I did run some hilly parts of my neighborhood but kept the pace easy.
Friday: I was planning to run on Friday but I woke up to Thunderstorms and torrential downpours, so instead we hung out, drank coffee, and went out to breakfast. Later that morning there were tornado warnings. Luckily nothing came go them, but a few days before we arrived a tornado had touched down 2 blocks from my in-laws’ house. So we didn’t mess around and went in the laundry room until the warnings were over.
It cleared up a bit in the afternoon so Rob and I went for a walk, otherwise I would have had about 10 steps for the day!
Walk: 3 miles
Saturday: 9.17 miles…We woke up to clear skies and 60 degrees, so I headed out for a run without a set distance in mind. I was thinking I would probably run 5-6 miles. I saw Rob when I was at 5.5 and ran with him a bit, then got a little turned around on my way back. The neighborhood around my in-laws house has alot of canals so the streets get cut off and force you to go the long way around. So I somehow ended up running over 9 miles, but it felt great to be out there!
Walk: 1 (barely)
Sunday: 5 miles…I thought I may not be able to get out for a run based on the forecast, but luckily the thunderstorms passed through overnight and it was a decent morning for a run, but rather windy. The winds picked up throughout the day and it was on the chillier side (for Florida) but luckily no more storms came through like we expected.
Walk: 1 mile
Totals: Run: 25 miles, Walk: 15.43 miles, 3 days of push-ups
Yearly mileage: 104.66/2016
We still have another day here so I am hoping we can get a little time out by the pool!
How were your workouts last week?
Have you ever been somewhere when there was a tornado warning and had to seek shelter?
Do you get steps in on vacation or just spend the day relaxing? (outside of a formal workout)
