Fitness Week In Review: 7/6 – 7/12

This past week was the first week on a Sweat Tracker plan. As I have written before I’m testing out Sweat Tracker as a part of being a Bib Rave Pro. Overall my impressions of the first week were positive. The training isn’t too different than the normal training I do for most major runs. The one big difference is that in some of the runs you do intervals which I usually never track. Outside of that there doesn’t appear to be any cross training days, so I may start incorporating those on my own.

Regardless, my week last week:

Monday: Rest

Tuesday: 4.01 Mile Run

Wednesday: Rest

Thursday: 3 Mile Run

Friday: Rest

Saturday: Rest (Not Planned)

Sunday: 3.04 Mile Run + Softball Game (And my 30th Birthday!)

As I noted above, Saturday was the only rest day that was not planned that way. Saturday was supposed to be my long run, however I was away from home from 9:00 AM to 11:00 PM. This was the day of the Kenny Chesney concert so needless to say I was out of the house all day.

I do need to work on incorporating my long runs into my schedule. With it being summer I know this will not be the first weekend that a social activity interrupts my running schedule. I saw recently that Runners World wrote an article titled “How to Train in the Summer to Meet Fall Goals” that covers this topic. I should probably give it a read.

Outside of the missed Saturday run I would call the week a success. I met the majority of my running goals and turned 30 on the weekend, which included the concert, softball and a family dinner. Not a bad way to start off my 1st week on Sweat Tracker. Now on to week 2….


My Nike+ Birthday Running Badge!


Kenny Chesney concert at my finest


Decided to rock what’s sure to be my next triathlon shirt


Got this in the mail this week. Planning on trying this to help with endurance and energy during running


Tuesday’s run was not only sweaty but rainy too. Can’t tell but shirt is 50% soaked in rain 50% soaked in sweat


Sunday’s “easy pace” run. Sub 30 going to start becoming the norm
