Monday, September 22 РCross 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?
