Running Days: 4
Miles: 3.1 + 2.7 + 3.5 + 3.8

Body Pump: Upper Body #116
How It Felt: Surprisingly, the runs weren’t all that bad! I was pretty slow on the first one, but I picked up my pace a little as the week went on. And even though I’ve been slacking on my PT exercises, my knee has felt alright. Guess my extra looooong break helped!
Even though I did the upper body only Body Pump workout, the squat presses in the back track left my legs quite sore. And I can’t remember the last time my chest was that sore!
Commentary: I would like to get back to one post per training day, and I’m hoping to get there after this post and the next!
I am eternally grateful the city is paving a path next to the canal. It makes it so much easier to run near my house. Granted, there’s only so far I can go because they are only paving about three miles, but it’s still better than driving to the Greenbelt for every run.
What’s more exciting than having a close place to run is getting my home gym set up! The squishy floor is down, protecting the hardwood, I have my weights for Body Pump as well as a step bench, and one of our TVs is set up for me to stream my workouts. I even bought dumbbells so I can do other exercises as well. Even though I do love going to the gym, working out at home is way more better.
On Friday (July 30th) I went paddleboarding down the Teton River with some friends. We saw three moose! And I forgot how log the fin is on my paddleboard. It became quite annoying when I ran aground and nobody else did because they had river fins on their boards. I still need to order a river fin sooner than later.
On Saturday (July 31st) I picked my mom up in Salt Lake City, and she stayed with me for a few days. We did a little bit of sightseeing, and she enjoyed herself. It’s always good to spend a little bit of time with mama!
Endlessly seeking adventure.
