Good Morning and Happy Labor Day!
We are officially back in Denver, settled, and back to normal business after a whirlwind weekend in New York.
Well, it’s back to business for a few days at least…
That’s right all, 5 day. 5 big ones until the big day.
I must say, going to a wedding across the country a week before your own may not be for everyone, but we made it!
This morning, I woke up ready to reset my body and find some routine to settle into until our own craziness begins. After a weekend of exploring a new area by running, by body was more than happy to take a reset with some yoga.
I stepped out into my own personal yoga oasis for a morning of stretching and healing.
Pretty sweet set up I have there on our upstairs patio, huh? 🙂
Workout for the Morning: YOGA for runners.
My travel and running fatigued body was VERY grateful for some TLC.
I spent some time this weekend thinking about how I was going to structure my work outs this week. I know that flexibility will be key, but because I’ve been thinking ahead I’ve structured work outs in a way that I WILL be able to be flexible.
First, I didn’t take Friday completely off like I normally do. I knew that traveling makes me stir crazy, so getting a quick and dirty work out in was best for all involved :).
I skipped a true long run last week, and just integrated some longer runs during the week, and left myself open to do shorter runs over the weekend, when I knew I’d be traveling and have less time and access to equipment.
Overall, it’s worked out very well and I now have a very loose schedule for the wedding week.
Workout Plan for WEDDING WEEK
- Monday: YOGA YOGA YOGA
- Tuesday: 4 easy miles
- Wednesday: Easy day: yoga + strength for arms and abs (8 minute videos anyone? 😉
- Thursday: Long Run
- Friday: Hike with friends
- Saturday: Wedding Run in Golden with my Maid of Honor
- Sunday: Back in being a newlywed 🙂
So, yes, it looks very different than my normal schedules, but seems like a good set up for a busy/amazing week. What do you think?
And now, I’m enjoying some morning coffee while chatting with you and planning out our Labor Day.
So far our Labor Day includes:
- Trip to the vet for updated shots for Gusman
- Trip to Macy’s for returns and possible wedding day gifts for each other
- Unloading some exciting wedding gifts (pictures to come 🙂
- Pizza night
- Possible movie night
I also may squeeze in some strength strength for runners before starting the day. . . yoga and coffee has woken up my muscles 🙂
I’ll be back later this afternoon to continue the New York recap! Wedding post to come!
Question for the Morning: Please tell me what you’ve been up to! I’ve missed everyone!
