This weekend went by way too fast! Saturday I DID run my 10K race! I felt really good despite having strep throat two days before. But then on Sunday my allergies flared up and I had a headache, sinus drainage, and a scratchy throat! Pollen is everywhere you look around here right now. My car is covered with it and when I ran the other day there was pollen on my phone! Crazy!
In exciting news...my son Hayden decided he wants to train for a 5K!!! Sunday afternoon we ran his first run of the couch to 5K program! He did so great!!! He started getting tired during the run portions so I got him to talking about Lego's (his favorite things) and he forgot he was even running!!! I hope he wants to keep this up!
Now it's time for another Weekly Chase! I'm ready to tell you all about my goals for this week! I hope you will link up your own goals with me too! And feel free to use the badge below in your post too! You can grab the badge HERE! :-)
Here are last week's goals!
- Goal #1: Run at least 2-3 times this week. Yes! I wanted to get in 3 runs but strep throat made me cancel one of them lol!
- Goal #2: Roll and stretch daily. Yes!
- Goal #3: Log and stay under all my calories this week. 95%! I stayed under my calories every day except Friday when I was fueling for my race. Some days were harder than others but I was strong!
- Goal #4: Figure out my running outfit for the race this weekend. I ended up wearing a black shirt, royal blue sparkle skirt, and black compression socks.
Here are the goals I am working on this week!
Goal #1: Run 3 times this week. I hope to get in 2 short runs and then I have my last half marathon of the spring season on Saturday. It's starting to get way too hot to run half marathons so this will be my last one until the fall.
Goal #2: Roll and stretch daily. Gotta keep this up!
Goal #3: Log and stay under all my calories this week except Friday when I'll be fueling for my race the next day. I've been doing pretty good with this! Some days are definitely harder than others but I'm loving that my clothes are fitting better! I've lost 5.3 pounds so far!!!
Goal #4: Hydrate and fuel well for my half marathon on Saturday. I need to be sure to drink plenty of water this week. I've been doing great with this since I've started counting calories but need to make sure I keep it up this week. I also need to eat some extra carbs (pizza!!!!) on Friday before the race.
That's my plan for this week! Not a whole lot different from last week but goals are goals, right?!
QOTD: What are your goals this week?
