I’m linking up with Road Runner Girl for The Weekly Chase and with Jesica from rUnladylike for Week-in-Review, in the hopes that setting weekly goals will help keep me on track throughout the week!

What I’m most proud of:

My hubby!!!  He traveled to Houston this past week, and was amazingly consistent.  And…he did his first outdoor run of the year – on a SUPER hilly course. He was fantastic…and honestly…pushed me to finish strong!!!  He also completed his highest mileage week yet (25 miles!)

13-Apr 14-Apr 15-Apr 16-Apr 17-Apr 18-Apr 19-Apr
3.1 3.1 3.1 4.2 0 0 11.65

Also – crushing the Glenmore Reservoir long, hilly run on Sunday!  We didn’t stop AT ALL!!!



Where I struggled:

Only running three times this week.  I let my work schedule get the best of me…  I thought I would be super self-motivated since the hubby was out of town this week…but it turns out I really, really, really just wanted to get my work done!!!  I think one night I didn’t even start my run until 7:30 pm.  I’m normally between 4-6 pm.

Thought for the week ahead:


Last week’s goals:

Goal #1: Balance.  With the hubby out of town this week, I want to make sure I keep myself balanced between relaxing & reading, working out, and eating healthy! #SUCCESS

This week’s goals:

Goal #1: Crush the Glenmore Reservoir again this weekend.  2nd time around should be even better, right?!

How is YOUR fitness training going?
