How was your weekend? Did y'all have a good one? Happy Mother's Day to all the moms out there, whether you have the 2 legged kind or the 4 legged ones!
I put together a little photo collage of my kid, Devyn.
My weekend started out wonderful but ended up being not so good. More on that in a sec. Let's knock out the Good, the Bad and the Ugly first.
The good - Ran for 20 minutes straight this morning. Also got complimented at tennis clinic about my racquet speed and my forehand!
The bad - Only 2 runs and only 2 weight trainings
The ugly - Stomach virus, nausea and (tmi) vomiting for Mother's Day....yay... Ugh felt miserable. I woke Chris up as I was in tears around 1 am Sunday. Throwing up is like the worst thing ever for me. I hate it so much. And then having to do it more than once. Ugh. So needless to say, it was a very unpleasant Mother's Day. Dev was feeling under the weather too, so I just told her that we'd try again maybe next weekend to hang out.
Here's last week's recap:
Monday - 60 minutes bowling (not pictured); 20 minutes running; 20 minutes walking
Tuesday - 20 minutes weight training; 2 hours of tennis
Wednesday - 14 minutes running; 20 minutes elliptical
Thursday - 60 minutes tennis
Friday - nothing/rest
Saturday - 20 minutes weight training; 50 minutes elliptical
Sunday - nothing/rest
I could tell that yesterday's stomach-palooza issues affected my run this morning. Of course, I could be a tad bit dehydrated too and then the 91% humidity this morning didn't help but I still managed to get my running mile in and then some. I set out with a goal this morning of trying to run for 20 minutes straight. During that first mile, I wasn't sure if I was even going to be able to do it but then I had to have a self pep talk. I know I can run a mile straight now. So it may not have been as fast as I have ran lately, but it's better than nothing! Once I hit the 20 minute mark, I walked the rest to total 2 miles. (It looked like I ran 20 minutes last week but that was a run/walk)
|As "slow" as a 14 minute mile is, that's still much faster than when I first started!|
Speaking of miles. I am way way behind on my 100 mile challenge. My co-worker and I decided to stop walking at lunch and on breaks because it's already getting so hot here and that is really putting a damper on my mileage. See...
100 Mile Challenge - 61.8/100
And I have roughly 2 and a half weeks to try to make up the difference. I may try to walk indoors at work. The problem is that my phone gps doesn't work inside. So what I may end up doing is going back and looking at my mile times and averaging it out between about 5 of them. Then walk for that allotted amount of time that I usually walk and the use that average mileage. Does that sound fair?
Despite Sunday, Chris and I had a nice weekend. We are almost caught up with The Guild on netflix (and that show is so much funnier now that I'm several years removed from my World of Warcraft days...). And we played some Borderlands 2 and Diablo on the PS3. Good stuff for a lazy and rainy weekend.
