Monday, September 22 – Cross Training. This was the start of my last week of training before the Zooma Cape Cod race.  I ended up taking the morning Pure Barre class, I know, no one is surprised, but man is it harder getting out of bed early, because it is pitch black out when I get up!

Tuesday, September 23 – 30 Minutes. I took an early morning Pure Barre class followed by a quick walk around the neighborhood.

Wednesday, September 24 – Cross Training. I ended up cancelling my barre class at last-minute. Some of the medicine I am currently on is making me feel nauseous (no I am not pregnant) and I just could not get out of bed in the morning.

Thursday, September 25 – 30 minutes. I took a Pure Barre class then did my 30 minutes while B was in school.

Friday, September 26 – Rest. For the most part, I took it easy. I did a little bit of running for Feetures, but other than that it was a very relaxing day!

Saturday, September 27 – ZOOMA 10K. Finished :)!

Sunday, September 28 – Rest. A much needed rest day. I did enough to get my legs moving and the blood flowing, aka walking around the grocery store and outside, but I was definitely sore so I took it easy.

Monday, September 29 – Pure Barre. – I took an early morning class, and I just took it easy. I told the teacher in advance that I would be taking breaks as needed. The seated ab work was definitely the most difficult for me.

Tuesday, September 30 – Pure Barre. I took a late class, really I wanted to keep my body moving, and also get in my 40 classes for the Fit for Fall Challenge!

Wednesday, October 1 – Rest. I was supposed to go to barre, but again, I wasn’t feeling good, and I just need to learn to listen to my body, not just my brain.

Thursday, October 2 – Pure Barre. My meds were at full force and I regretted that workout a little bit, not because it was a bad workout, but because I was hot flashing, sore and just all around not feeling 100%.

Friday, October 3 – Pure Barre. After going to bed super early, I hit the morning class, and even though I wasn’t feeling on my A game, I wasn’t feeling as bad as I was the day before. This was class #89 for me. Only 11 classes until I get those 100 classes and sign the bar!

Saturday, October 4 and Sunday, October 5 – Rest. We decided to spend the weekend with some family, and I decided to take some rest days from classes.

FOOD

So, some updates. I was getting some blood work done and I tested positive for Celiac, aka Gluten, this is a disease, it is not trendy it is a lifestyle change, 100%. It caught me off guard, for sure. I re-tested, and I tested negative on the second test. However the test is scaled, 0-3 is a negative, 4-10 is a positive. My positive was at a 5, and my negative was at a 3. Unfortunately, in order to take these tests you have to eat gluten, and I don’t eat a ton of it anyway. I am going to re-test, just to be 100% sure since I do have some rare markers of Celiac. That is why things in the food department have been wonky.

How was your week in workouts?

  1. Annoying that you have to retest again!!!! I’m glad you listened to your body post race. I’m sure pushing yourself through that race was really tough and it’s great that you are trying to give yourself credit for pushing through by giving your body the rest it deserves. I’ve been having a hard time with that too – I tried to run Sunday and my IT band was VERY bad after. So yesterday at the gym was just weights and it really bothered me. But it’s already feeling a lot better today so probably good that I rested. You’re so close to that 100! Once you get there let’s go out and celebrate!

  2. YAY ZOOMA! :)

    I’m trying to get better at listening to my body. This week it’s very sleepy so I’m trying to just listen to my body and not exercise, sleep more, etc. – it’s not working though, I keep signing up for classes and missing them!
