The weekend was pretty busy; I spent the entire day Sunday cleaning. I got up at 8:30, had a boring breakfast of oatmeal, then got right to work cleaning. I carried my coffee cup around with me as I started deciding what to do first. I love our house, I really do, but the entire house is wood floors, except for the bathrooms, and those are tile. That’s a lot of sweeping & mopping. ugh. It seems like a pointless chore with two dogs (& a husband) that track dirt in just as soon as the floor as dried. Oh well, I tried.
A few weeks ago I started decluttering our house. I started in our bathroom. Good grief. We had so many bottles of shampoo & conditioner, and various other hair products, it was ridiculous. Half used bottles, unopened bottles.. in the trash. I only kept what I actually used.
It felt so freeing to throw away all that clutter.
Then I started to tackle our closets (all 4 of them) and dressers.
buh-bye old clothes & shoes.
After way to many hours of cleaning I decided to test out my new treadmill (and my foot). I haven’t run or done any sort of impact workouts since Feb 12th (RnR) so I was really anxious to get a run in.
I decided on an easy 5k: time was 26:56, 8:42avg. I felt great, aside from being bored. I had no pain or discomfort, I think my foot is on the mend.
I’ll be taking it easy this week just to make sure my foot is 100% healed come March 3rd (gasparilla 15k).
Monday after work I ran 3 miles on the treadmill; 26:29, 8:49avg– I also did Jillian Michaels Yoga meltdown. Two workouts in one day!
I think the rest of my workouts this week will look like this:
Tuesday: 4mi treadmilly
Thursday: 3 mi treadmilly
Friday : 3 mi treadmilly
Saturday : rest
Sunday: Take Stock in Children 5k + 7 miles = 10miles total
Total: 23 miles + yoga x 2
I’m opting to run on the treadmill this week just in case the foot pains rears it’s nasty little head again. All my running routes (all 2 of them) are out and back routes; if I started having pain I’m stuck. It’s easy to just jump of the treadmill.
Are you a neat freak? Any tips for me?
Any races this coming weekend?
