Sometimes I can’t get over how smart I am. Taking the Monday off after a long weekend is amazing. Although tomorrow will be a big shock back to reality, I am enjoying this extra day to get myself all caught up on laundry, food prep, and some last minute beach time.
Since I last checked in, I enjoyed a pretty relaxing, low key 4th in Nantucket. And I successfully (somewhat) completed my first week of NYCM training!
I’m linking up with Erin for Weekend Recap, Tara for Weekend Update, and Katie for Marvelous Monday to tell you all about my Marvelous Weekend, but I will be keeping it short and sweet to make sure I can enjoy the last few moments of my long weekend : )
1. Nantucket. So let’s just start with the obvious. This is truly my happy place. I feel completely at home and relaxed from the moment I step off the ferry. I’ve been very lucky to have been up a few times already this year, and with more trips planned, it made leaving today a little bit easier.
Let’s just say each time I come, it gets harder and harder to leave. #Spoiled
2. Running. Speaking of Nantucket, I was able to get some runs in. Saturday was officially my first long-run of my training cycle. My past week of running was decent, definitely not where I’d like it to be, but I’m on the mend.
Week Recap 6/29 – 7/5:
Monday: Rest day post half marathon on Sunday (you can read the recap here)
AM: 5.49 easy miles to shake out my legs post race (8’20” overall pace)
PM: 4.59 tempo miles – conversational pace… hoping to be back to more aggressive pacing in the next few weeks (7’27” overall pace)
Wednesday: Rest day because YOLO
Thursday: 5.04 miles, 7’13” pace (on Nantucket woohoo!)
Friday: 7.02 miles at a comfortable pace (8’01” average)
Saturday: 10.0 miles (8’04” average pace)
Sunday: Travel day/Rest day
3. Cleanse: So this past weekend I was
pretending hoping that my stomach would be back to normal. Unfortunately, I think I need a reboot. Welcome to day 1 of juice cleanse. I will do a post tomorrow about what cleanse I am following (I did some research, combined foods that work for me, and made my own plan) and will be following it for a full SEVEN days. Fingers crossed I can make it : )
That’s all for today. If you need me, I’m dead set on finishing my book on the beach. Hope you all had a fabulous weekend and have a great Monday!
What was your favorite part of the weekend?
Anyone else crazy enough to try a cleanse? How did it go?
Favorite workout this past week? All runs on Nantucket are the best kind of runs!
