Pssst! Tomorrow is the last day to enter the Love Grown Foods Power O’s GIVEAWAY.

The other post title option I considered was “The Week I Didn’t Exercise.”
Because, well, that’s nearly the truth.
Last week’s strong week of workouts (and all the running!), unfortunately, did not run (pun intended) into this week.
I didn’t sweat a rest day on Monday, but when my body needed additional rest Tuesday and Wednesday as well, I knew something up was up. I felt proud of myself for warding off all colds and flus this past winter; but, I finally caught a cold (or the worst spring allergies) this week.
I hate to admit that I think the seasonal allergies are here to stay a while longer – ugh – but I am hopeful my workouts will pick up next week. Where are the burpees at!?

Workouts | Week of April 7
Monday – Rest Day
Tuesday – Rest Day
Wednesday – Rest Day
Thursday – 30 min. walk (including 100 step-ups) + Beach Yoga with Karena (20 min.)
basically a rest day
Friday – Rest Day
Saturday – 30 min. run (AM) + 20 min. walk (PM) + a short sandbag circuit:
3 rounds x 12 reps each (sandbag @ 35lb.)
- shredders (push-up to squat clean + overhead press)
Sunday – 6 mile run + Beach Yoga with Karena (20 min.)
With those April Intentions on my mind, I wanted to attempt a second long run for the month since I know they’ll be harder to accomplish in the upcoming weekends. While it was a slow Sunday Runday, I’m grateful I was outside enjoying the spring sunshine for an hour (albeit the pollen festival and sneezing episodes)… that my knee caused me little grief, and that my body didn’t have notable difficulty running six miles after a week of life as a couch potato.
