This has been such a slow/fast week! Ha ha. Let’s take a look at how I did shall we?

Summer Friday Fitness

Friday- Softball- 2 games

Saturday- 3.5 mile run (terrible)

Pretty place for a run

I had THE WORST run on Saturday! It took me 50 minutes to do 3.5 miles! My lungs felt fine but my legs and butt felt so heavy and like lead. I felt like I was running in my sleep/


I followed my run with a weight session. That went better than the run did but I was still exhausted!

Sunday- Rest Day

Monday- Softball- 2 games

My softball schedule is wonky this year. We basically alternate Monday and Fridays each week.

Tuesday- Awful sprint workout- 100s, 125s, 150s, 300 

Are you seeing the theme of this week? I just felt so tired and life has been overwhelming. I wasn’t able to hit the track until 9:30 p.m. on Tuesday night. I didn’t get in my weights or drills because I was racing daylight and had almost no energy.

Wednesday- Off

Thursday- Sprints- 8 X 60m

This was a fun workout! The first two sprints were really difficult for me and I just couldn’t get my speed up until I realized I was holding my breath! Duh Rachel! Once I focused on my breath, I was running much quicker.

I forgot how long it takes to build up your strength. I’ve been lifting weights at the gym for a month now and I haven’t increased my weight by that much.

Goodlife & ParticipACTION

Tomorrow, June 6, is National Health & Fitness Day and Goodlife Fitness has partnered with ParticipACTION  to host an open house at their gyms for anyone who wants to try it out. Visit or to find a location near you.

If you’re Lethbridge-based though, only the ladies an check it out!


On a side note,  I am very excited for a consultation today with a Registered Dietician to talk about my eating and how I can improve my performance with proper planning and nutrition.

Have you ever talked to a RD?
