I have been a busy lady working out and getting ready for my trip. Usually a blog hiatus means no workouts, but this time I have lots to report!!!
On Tuesday, I rode my bike on the trainer for an hour. It would have been a beautiful night to go ride outside but my busy schedule prevented me from taking the time to pack up my bike, drive somewhere rideable, get a ride in, drive back and be presentable for a late dinner. Oy!!
I had some bridesmaid duties to take care of. My dress came in and I was really worried that it was going to be a bit tight. It is quite form fitting in the hip, tummy, butt area and those are my problem areas. I was concerned that my break in training would have affected how the dress fits but the good news is that it is too big!! I certainly didn't lose weight though- its just the terrible sizing chart that bridesmaid dress designers use to trick you into order a dress wayyyy too big for you so you have to spend a million dollars on alterations!! I know their tricks!! A strapless dress still motivates me to workout and tone up.
On Wednesday, I had a couple errands to run to get ready for our trip. I wasn't home until 6:30pm so I continued packing and squeezed a run in around 8pm. It was a beautiful evening for a run, around 17 C. I wore shorts and a tank top so definitely a change from my run on Sunday! We ran a tempo run for just under 30 minutes. I felt quite strong for the 1st half and then slowed down for the last 10 minutes.
In other news, I signed up for a couple more races!!
On July 3rd, I will be running the Race for Pace 10km at Glenmore Park. It is 3 weeks after Wasa and will keep me motivated continue training.
