Week In Review; 2/8-2/14

Week In Review; 2/8-2/14


*Note: Earlier this week I thought I had done something to my groin, but as it turns out, it is my hip flexor.  Bummer news, but it could be a lot worse!  Luckily, it is only a very slight strain and my doctor thinks I will be fine to run Sunday.  He suggested some days off (I didn’t run Tues-Sat) and stretching and icing.  I ran jogged slowly today and felt good so I am hopeful that I will be okay for next weekend.  And if I am feeling iffy about it, then it has already been decided we are just going to walk/jog the entire 13.1 and have a blast anyway!!!

Running-  5.2 miles total for the week.  2.2 miles @ 10:50 pace on Monday.  3 miles @ 11:33 pace on Sunday.

Biking-  45 minutes (9.2 miles) on Friday and 20 minutes (4.2 miles) on Sunday.

Strength training- I shoveled snow three times on Wednesday and two times on Thursday.  Trust me, that was a killer work-out!  In addition, I lifted for 30 mins total- biceps and chest.

Cross Training- Elliptical-15 minutes Monday.

Abs Challenge- 400. 

Weekly High: Still going to the gym even though I couldn’t run.  It was tough but I don’t want to lose my fitness, so I did it.

Weekly Low: This was a low week in general 😦


  • There will be no Week In Review next week- instead you have a three-part series to look forward to about my trip 🙂 
  • Reminder: my giveaway ends this Wednesday 2/17.

Life: I mentioned a few times over the last year that my Pop-Pop is sick, and he isn’t doing well.  If you have any thoughts/prayers etc, that you can send to my family, please do. 

Three things I am grateful for this week:

  1. Thursday’s weather report- Sunny, sunny, sunny!!!!!!!  No chance of snow and no chance of a flight delay!
  2. Sun- Speaking of the sun…it actually made a small appearance today!  Oh, how I have missed it!
  3. Extra change- I always throw my change into a jar (except for my miles- that goes in my special container for PiF 500+ Back on my Feet) and I saved enough since fall that it covered my flight to Florida and some spending money!  Proof that small change really adds up!

  1. Can NOT WAIT for Thursday! We are going to have an O.C.D. blast of a weekend! 🙂 LOL!

    Take it easy on that leg and you know that my prayers are with you.


  2. I am sorry to hear about your hip! My husband has hurt his a few times, and it so hard to stretch it. You just have to rest.

    I will keep your pop-pop in my thoughts. I am sending you big hugs 🙂

  3. I am sorry to hear about your hip issues. I personally know how that sucks:) I can’t wait to start seeing more of our friend Mr. Sun too:) Way to save up the change for something like a flight to Florida!! That is very cool! I hope that you had a great weekend:)
