Saturday Sweat – Accountabilibuddy

Sometimes you just gotta get your Saturday sweat on with your best fitness partner, no matter if she’s in Michigan and you are in Rhode Island – Zoom for the win! 😍

It stinks we can’t get together in person as often as we would like, because we live further away, but I take any FaceTime I can get with this girl!

She tried the new Shift Shop sampler while my winking pumpkin shirt and I crushed shoulders!

Love my accountabilibuddy!

Happy Saturday! 💕

ps, if wearing a winkin’ Pumpkin shirt makes you more inclined to get your sweat on, then by all means, wear your winkin’ Pumpkin shirt!

Saturday Sweat – Running In Nice Weather

Great weather (at least at the hour I was out there!) for some running… continuing the quest towards 175 miles!

It was 60° out when I ran, which is pretty cool after the summer of humidity we have had – I am personally looking forward to Fall for running purposes. The summer temps coupled with humidity are not very kind to a runner!

Racked up 4.2 miles today, clocking the first at 8:56 and the last at 6:27 – this splits stuff is pretty awesome and definitely shows me I usually finish stronger than I start!

It was also nice to be able to breathe while running

What’s YOUR Saturday sweat?

Saturday Sweat – New Distance PR!

WELL THEN!

That’s one way to get your Saturday sweat on! 🙌🏼

I was inspired after a chat with a fellow runner, one who is a large part of why I even took this summer challenge on, so since today is a rest day in my program, I set out to do my thang, log a couple of miles and just keep on keeping on… every bit helps, right? (Right!)

I haven’t run this far since I was a teenager, and for some reason as yet unknown, I did it the day after an all-HIIT leg day?! What the hell was my thought process there?! 😩

I survived… I’m sore, but I feel a little bit like a badass, and this means I’m just a little over a mile from my next feat – a 10k!

Saturday Sweat – LIIFT 4 Leg Day!

What in the actual eff just happened?! 😩

Ohhh, that’s right, LEG DAY.

I swapped rest day yesterday because my right shoulder was ping-a-linging, so all my fellow test groupers had posted and warned me leg day ain’t nothing to eff with, but shoooot! That’s a sweat fest! 💦

(I stand by my “if you still look good when you’re done, you didn’t work hard enough” mantra 😉)

You joining me for LIIFT 4?

 

Saturday Sweat – Earlier Than Usual!

You thought our normal workout time was early?!

What’s a girl to do when her accountabilibuddy is going off the grid for two weeks to enjoy her vacation with family and disconnect a bit?

Well if you are me, you soak up one last Saturday zoom workout together at the ripe hour of 0330!

So while I’m super sad we will go from talking all day and night on multiple platforms to barely talking at all due to no service, I’m so happy she’ll get some super quality time with her fam – and I’ll miss her!

Saturday sweat in the books – who’s getting their sweat on today?!

Saturday Sweat!

By 0730 I’d already gotten a run in and done a 47 minute booty workout. My little legs are TOAST! But I’m glad I got some mileage in – it’s a nice running day, not scorching hot!

Now to run some errands, prep some thangs and then for the rest of the day you can find me celebrating this amazing country with amazing people.

(And if I don’t get up to greet you it’s because like I said, my little legs are DONE, haha)

What are you up to today?

Saturday Sweat – Summer Challenge In Full Effect

We are in a heat wave… a humid one at that! I don’t love humidity – I don’t mind a dry heat, though.

But if I am to meet the 175 mile summer challenge, I need to get some runs in, so they have to happen early, before the sun warms everything up, or they won’t happen!

It was already about 74 degrees when I ran at 0630 today, so my 2 miles felt more like 20, and I was full body drenched!

But, I will say… it feels good to rise above the exhaustion, the heat, and any other factor, and GET IT DONE. There is something extremely powerful within that, and that is the very feeling that I aim for!

Are you getting your sweat on today?
