Goodbye Summer!

Summer has flown by this year, maybe it’s just because there is actually fall in Southern Oregon so it seems like a more definitive end?  There really isn’t a real fall in California, so it’s a new experience to wake up and it actually be in the 40s in the morning!  I’m liking it though because I am not someone that does well in the heat, I wilt in the sun. 🙂

Anyways, this week has been awesome!  I still have another week until school starts, and I can use the school gym for my workouts so I got a free week pass to a gym on Monday so I could get my lifting in and stay on track.  I tried to do the at home thing for a week, but it did not work for me, I need to be at a gym to get a really good session in.  So Monday, Wednesday, and Friday I did my powerlifting  splits, and then Monday-Thursday I also did accessory work.  Everything went really well!  I restarted my program so all the weights were very light this week, but I pushed hard on the accessory movements and was feeling it in my glutes after leg day!

In my last blog, I talked about how I want to run again, and it was such a nice morning here today that I went out for a quick little jaunt, and ran a mile!  It felt so great, and super easy, I could have kept going, but I wanted to be conservative and build my legs up so I don’t feel any discomfort in my shins.  I am so happy!  Hopefully a few days this week will also be a bit cooler in the afternoons and I can get a few more miles in. 🙂

It’s been such a good week for me, I think knowing school is starting up in just over a week is making me very motivated to work hard now while I have all the time in the world.  Also, I am currently 8.5 lbs down and I just finished week 8 of my diet!  So that made me very happy!

I hope you all have had a great week too, anything fun happen this week?  Let me know!

Happy Running
