Square Life Round World

I'm navigating through this round world while living a square life, and it fits exactly as it should.

Back on Track–Wrap Up

on July 1, 2013

Ok so I didn’t blog every single day about how my week went.  It was starting to get a bit redundant so I thought I’d just summarize it.

I give myself a B on hydration.  Most days I did well with it, but a couple of days I definitely could have used more water.  I did have some cramping issues last night after my run yesterday, and that’s never happened before.  I remembered that I did not have my electrolyte beverage before or after the run, so I’m going to say that’s what it was.

I give myself a B for nutrition as well.  Again, most days I did well.  There were a few hiccups along the way, mostly caused by changes in my normal routine.  When I had a normal day, nutrition was a breeze.  If I had something special to do, it was a challenge. 

I give myself a C on fitness.  I only worked out 3 of the 6 days I had planned.  However, I was able to finish my long run yesterday of 4.5 miles.  That’s the longest I’ve run at any given time since the Princess Half Marathon so I’ll call that a win. 

My weight loss for the week was 2 pounds.  Here’s where only weighing myself once a week would have been the better idea.  At one point during the week I was down 4 pounds so I was a bit disappointed in only 2.  Had I not weighed myself, I wouldn’t have seen the 4 pound loss, and I’d be totally happy with 2.

So over all, I do feel closer to being back on track than I was a week ago, and that’s a good thing.  I have one more week before my official fall race schedule training begins, and I plan to make the most of it.
