Unfortunately, our vacation in Colorado came to an end and we came back home to STL on Thursday 😦 I always hate the end of vacations because it seems like forever for them to actually get here, and then they go by so quickly! We had so much fun in Colorado and it is such a beautiful place, so I’m hoping we will be able to go back there some day. Here are a few pictures from our trip:
While we were in Colorado, we did a lot of walking and I also ran for fun a couple of the days there so I could experience what it was like to run at such a high altitude! It was definitely much different and I was huffing and puffing pretty hard at the end of my short runs. It was still a cool experience though.
Here was a quick look at my week:
Monday, July 28th: Hiking in Colorado
Tuesday, July 29th: 2 miles running, ab exercises
Wednesday, July 30th: 2 miles running, ab exercises and squats
Thursday, July 31st: Return home from vacation 😦
Friday, August 1st: 1st Day of my Ab Challenge!
Saturday, August 2nd: 4 miles running, Day 2 Ab Challenge
Sunday, August 3rd: 9 miles running, Day 3 Ab Challenge
Like I discussed last week, August is the start of my Ab Challenge and more importantly the start to Marathon #2 Training! I did not run on Friday since I was exhausted from having to work two full days starting right after we got off the plane from Colorado, so my running started on Saturday. On Sunday, I had my longest run since the marathon and it went fairly well. I didn’t really go too fast and took it pretty easy but it felt good to get out there for a longer run.
I hope you all have a great start to your week! I’ll be back on Wednesday with some of my favorite fitness/running related links that I found this past weekend.
