Walt Wednesday

Some people do a "Wordless Wednesday" post, where they simply share a photo or image, but I thought I'd make a little series out of my Wednesdays. And since I love alliteration so much, why not go with Walt Wednesdays (obviously everyone can use a little break from the seriousness, scariness and sassiness of life - and what better way to help put a smile on your face than with a cute wiener dog picture, am I right?!)... So, without further ado...

WALT WEDNESDAY!


When life gets overwhelming, how do you de-stress?

Sunday, September 6th – 10.10 mile solo run, 3.1 mile run with the hubby


Monday, September 7th – 90 minutes on the stationary bike


Tuesday, September 8th  10 mile run


Wednesday, September 9th – 90 minutes on the stationary bike

They hubby and I were originally supposed to be in Kern River for a camping trip to celebrate our birthdays this weekend, but with all of the wildfires burning in SoCal the campgrounds and recreational areas have been closed. We wouldn't let that thwart our plans of a birthday adventure, so we threw together a last minute trip to Utah. While we were there we ended up getting in much more running than I was originally expecting, so I was over 50 miles for the week (which hasn't happened in quick a long time!) - WHOOO HOOOO! Not only was I at 56.78 miles for the week, but my ankle held up on the uneven terrain while trail running and hiking - YIPPEEEEE! I am going to consider this week a major success!

How were your workouts this past week?

#RealTalk - This humidity (and now this heat wave) is sucking the pep out of my step... and sort of sucking the enjoyment out of the runs. Unless I start them super early, I am soggy pretty much from the jump and not 100% loving them. I realize summer running/ training isn't always fun, but I normally have fall races I am training for, so they make the "slog" worth it... With all of my fall races cancelled, it is taking some pure grit and dedication to get up when my alarm clock goes off every morning at 4:34am so I can get in a workout before working an 8 hour shift at the running store. Hopefully the fall temps are on their way (although I doubt anytime soon) and I will re-fall in love with running again sooner rather than later.

How were your workouts this past week?
