Weekly Wrap Up

By Sara Zwicker @SaraZwicker

Good afternoon friends!! It’s a scorcher here in Boston today with temps in the 90′s! EEK!!!  I hate to complain about the weather since we have about 9 months of cold, but my pasty white skin can’t take the heat and sun like that, so today, I am thankful I work in an air conditioned office!!!  How was everyone’s weekend?  Do anything fun?  We had another busy but fun weekend filled with birthday parties, a race (for me), and a trip into Boston to the Aquarium and Faneuil Hall.  It was perfect and this week is a short week for me with the 4th of July holiday, so I’m only working Monday- Wednesday!   Anyways, enough about that.  Let’s see what happened last week in the Weekly Wrap Up!

Week 6/23-6/29

Monday: I did my T25 Beta Core Cardio followed by a 5 mile run in 42:37 (8:31 pace) and it felt AHH-MAZING!!  I finished up the workout with some core work on my own (my Blogilates App wouldn’t load on my phone for some reason! BOO!)

Tuesday: I had an early morning with having to get to the airport (only to be delayed) en route to Philly.  So, essentially, this was a rest day.  Once I landed in Philly, we checked in, grabbed lunch at The Palm (it was fantastic!) and then was in sessions from 1-5:30 p.m.  We headed to the cocktail reception and then had another incredible meal at Buddakan and called it a night.  A lot of good eating/drinking and no exercise…OOPS!  

Wednesday: I was traveling with my friend and colleague Dee and we decided at dinner the night before that we would meet early in the morning and get in a good run togehter before sitting all day at the conference.  We met up at 6:30 a.m. and got in a great run while taking in some of the sights near our hotel.

 I didn’t have my Garmin, so I don’t know how long we went but I am going to say it was at least 4-4.5 miles.  It was really muggy but it was really nice to run and chat with someone, something I haven’t done in a REALLY long time and it made me realize how much I missed running with others.

Thursday: After a long day on Wednesday (and a delayed flight coming back home), resulting in not seeing Ashton before he went to bed (so bummed!), I woke up and was totally not motivated to workout out but I pushed through the T25 Beta Rip T Circuit video and then did my usual Thursday morning vinyasa yoga class.  I felt quite a bit better after yoga, it was just one of those classes where everything clicked and I left feeling better about the day.  I taught Group Power in the evening and cuddled a little longer than usual with Ashton before bed so I didn’t get in anything else for the day.

Friday: I did the T25 Beta Rip T Circuit and then T25 Beta Dynamic Core and then spent a good amount of time foam rolling in anticipation of my race on Saturday.

Saturday: I had my 2nd in a series of 3 trail races put on by Xterra.  It was an8k race and it was pretty terrible (from a performance and execution standpoint.)  I’ll recap it in more detail later this week.  Am I glad I did it? Yes.  With that said, I don’t have high hopes for the last race of the series, but we will see how it plays out.

Sunday: Rest day.  We took Ashton into Boston for his very first visit to the Aquarium.  WE all had a good time, although Ashton really had more fun jumping up and down off the viewing sills than anything else.  But I guess that is what is fun and exciting for a 2 year old!

After the Aquarium we walked over to Fanueil Hall and took in some of the sights.  Going back to Fanueil Hall is always really nostalgic to us since that is where Robyn and I met and fell in love, so its fun to go back there  with Ashton now and point out to him where we used to work and places we used to like to visit. 

So friends, that was my week.  It wasn’t ideal with some work travel thrown in there, but all in all, I am pretty happy with it.  I wasn’t as great with core workouts as I have been in past weeks so I need to jump back on that train this week so get on me if you don’t see some good core work listed next week, okay?  I need you all to hold me accountable


Have a wonderful week friends!!
