Cotton Candy and Workout Plan Aug 1 – 7

Yes 2 VERY related healthy living subjects! I realized today that there are pretty much no pictures of me on my own blog. I swear I’m not a robot. Anyways here is a self-taken cell phone (only the best quality for me!) picture of me with cotton candy after the carnival today in Bruce’s mom’s kitchen. Yes I am that white (natural light + weekend of stomach flu = ghost).



I felt well enough to venture out into the world today. The carnival was fun, well the cotton candy was most of the fun. Lets call this the weekend of unhealthy. Funny thing is I weighed myself for a laugh when I got home and I lost 1.2 pounds in 48 hours (I weigh myself every Friday so I know what I weighed 2 days ago), I blame the stomach flu.

Anyways here is a recap of this week:

Great week for mileage, 20.4 miles woo hoo! I am pleased : ) I had to skip my swim due to meetings. So here is the upcoming plan for the next week:


Type Monday Tuesday Wednesday Thursday Friday Saturday  Sunday
Run (Minutes) 30 min 47 min  40 min (outside) 30 min (outside) 40 min  47 min (outside) Rest
Class  Body Pump     Body Pump Body Flow Yoga  


All my runs have set speeds that are planned for me by my friend the running coach so that is why when you see the actual results on here and daily mile the miles are all over the place. His plan is working wonderfully so far I am feeling stronger then ever!


There is no planned swim but we’ll see what happens. Wednesday is a maybe holiday here, yes I said maybe because it depends on the wind. Only in Newfoundland the province of the worst winds ever would there be a holiday that depends on the wind. The holiday is for the Royal St. John’s Regatta (fyi: the oldest sporting event in North America). I have rowed it 3 times myself but have retired due to back injuries. So it will happen one day this week just depending on the winds so I didn’t want to schedule a swim until I see what unfolds this week! We have house reno projects planned depending on the holiday so we will see what happens! Enjoy your week!
