Whoops! My recap is a little later than normal today because I just got back from an INCREDIBLE overnight trip to Glacier National Park. I cannot wait to recap the awe-inspiring hike I went on. But let’s get into the week of workouts shall we?

Friday- Rest Day

Saturday- 3 mile walk

I was supposed to run 11 miles but it is so hard to get motivated to workout when you’re camping. Instead I walked the dogs to a mountain lake and back and called it good.

Sunday- Nothing

Monday- 40 minute run

Do you know what makes for a tough coulee run? When at the beginning, a well-meaning bicyclist tells you he saw a “huge rattlesnake” cross the path just below and that you have to watch your step. AHHHHH!! I spent my whole run watching the grass next to the path. At one point I saw something on the path next to me and I screamed and jumped and it was the shadow of my arm. Ha ha ha!

Tuesday- Nothing

Yoga day turned into a rest day.

Wednesday- Hill Strides

The original workout was 5X60 second hill strides but it went more like; 60 sec, 45, 45, 60, 30, 30. Ha ha! 60 seconds uphill is a long time!
