An Indulgent Weekend

So I had a wonderful labour day weekend. Lots of fun, relaxation, and running! I ended the weekend with a wedding Sunday night. It was lovely, the bride was stunning and I had a wonderful time. I also took my camera and when I got there realized that my memory card was in my computer, blogger fail. So you’ll just have to take my word that it was a lovely time.

I spent Monday catching up on housework and life. I didn’t blog my workout plans because my friend the running coach is on vacation and is only sending me a couple days of plans so I followed them and I am awaiting my next couple days. If you’re really interested in what I’m up to check out daily mile . Rest assured with a race on Sunday I am running as much as I can!

So I had an indulgent weekend now it’s time to get back on track. My running results were good last week, however everything else was not. I usually don’t  find it difficult to get out and run. Running to me is as natural as breathing and I love the feeling I get from it. But now that I am basically running outside all the time it’s near impossible to get me into a gym for Body Pump and Yoga because I have to actually show up at the gym to do those. I love them once I am there but it’s getting me there that’s the battle. I swear I am going to Body Pump tomorrow, I am posting it here so I am accountable. Here are last week’s results, I moved my rest day and read Thursday’s workout wrong and ran only 20 minutes:

It was a good week for running but a fail on everything else including my Monday Mantra. However, I did do yoga yesterday so not a total fail. This week’s Mantra will be plain and simple another getting back on track week, finding motivation, and prepping for Sunday’s race.

 

I’m in need of a suggestions and motivation, how do you stay on track?
