Sunday - Rest Day

Tuesday - 3 mile bridge run with running group
Wednesday - Rest Day
Thursday - Part 1 of runDisney's Virtual Running Shorts 5K
Friday - Morning walk with Brayden

This past weekend was a busy one that didn't leave much time for running or working out. Combine the various events we attended along with the fact that Jason worked nights meant I literally had no time to get out and go for a run. Instead, I completed my usual weekend run on Friday morning.

On Monday, I decided to find my old Jillian Michael's DVD's and see if I could keep up. I couldn't decide which one to do but finally settled with the 30 Day Shred. Needless to say, I was definitely sore the next day!

Tuesday afternoon was my running group's final bridge run of the season. Since I hadn't made any of them all year, I decided that the final one was it!

So basically, we have this super large and not too busy bridge in my town. My coach discovered it and decided it would make for a good workout and she was RIGHT. I made it over and back a total of six times which equaled a little over three miles.

After going over and back two times, I would stop for water then repeat. the total on my watch also reflects my warmup which was 0.3 miles. THIS is a very challenging and great workout.

I left drenched! Whew.

Yesterday, I completed the first portion of the runDisney Virtual Running Shorts 5K. I'm signed up for the series, so there's two additional runs to complete this summer.

I'll post more about this run in a separate blog post next week!

This weekend, I'm planning a longish run with my running buddy! It's so nice to get back into the swing of things!! :)  Hope you have a great (long) weekend!

Any Memorial Day (or weekend) plans? 


  1. Planning when to run is so challenging with a baby added to the mix, isn't it? There are plenty of days that I'd love to run or workout but can't. But at least I have a cute baby smile looking at me to remind me that missing out is also okay. :)

    1. Yes, you are right and the baby is so worth missing a run here and there! :)

  2. Bridges are surprisingly deceptive. Sounds like you had a great week!

    1. They sure are! This one in particular is a doozy!

  3. I have a bridge along my normal running route. You have given me the idea to just run back an forth on it as an actual workout! Thanks.
