This past week was my first week without a gym (my first full week being "retired"). As I mentioned, I left my job that I was at for over five years. With that job, one of the perks we had was that we could use the hotel gym (since we rented office space through the hotel). 

I have to say, I think my body handled the more frequent running great. Obviously I am not planning on running 10 miles a day in place of going to the gym, so I think the variation of distance and pace will be totally fine. I also need to be sure to stay on top of my stretching and foam rolling, as to not let my IT Band get angry with me again. 

I LOVE where we live and that I can run at the beach throughout the year! We are BEYOND BLESSED and am STOKED to be able to take advantage of our surroundings more and more.

How were your workouts this past week?

Great job on stretching and foam rolling! I injured my IT band last Spring, not fun! I am trying to be better about stretching and foam rolling more consistently; I did it twice this week. I've added yoga once per week as well.
