Good sweaty week

I am very happy with how this week has been. Sure, my plans haven’t gone exactly as I’ve wanted every single day, but my diet was on point Monday to Friday (stupid Saturday and today) and I have had 4 good runs this week. One of the things I need to get better at is drinking water. I have not been drinking enough water this week, not even close. Every time I’m thirsty I find myself pouring Pepsi Max into my glass instead of killing my thirst with water. So now I have to say goodbye to my beloved diet soda once again. That’s the only way I know I can do it, I’m not one of those people who are good at sticking to 1 glass a day or “just weekends”. So, starting right now, I am no longer drinking diet soda! I also need to get better at remembering to do my crunches every day and to go for a walk the days I’m not running. Other than that the week has been great.
Wednesday was warm and sunny. I am trying to do a long run each week now, and I figured this day would be perfect for that. I never really know where to run when I go for a long run because I’m so used to my regular routes and in my head that’s the only place possible to run. I started running my regular route, then over a bridge to the other side of the river. First I took to the right. I have never been on that path before and I thought that maybe it would be long enough to make it a long run. Even though it was a really nice path I was very wrong about the lenght of it. So I turned around and ran towards the city. Over another bridge, then back up in the direction I started. In the end it was only 16,45 km, but that’s long enough for me.
I don't sweat, I sparkle!
On Thursday I was supposed to go for a morning run, but because I woke up waaay too late to do a morning run I went for an evening run instead. I was surprised by how warm it still was even though it was pretty late in the day. It’s not like I’m one of those people who can work out for hours without getting sweaty, I sweat like crazy when I run, but I’m not used to having sweat literally drip down from my face. My collarbones turned into little ponds, haha! Hopefully soon I’ll get back to my regular early mornings, I really don’t like waking up late. If every morning can be like Tuesday from now on I’ll be very very happy.
Run with dad
Saturday was great! My dad and I went for our first trail training run together. La Sportiva Table Rock 10k is getting closer and closer now, so we really need to do more of these trail runs together. We drove up to Γ…rkvisla, where there are a bunch of different paths to choose from. This was my first time running in this area and it was fun to run somewhere new. I wasn’t feeling too great so we had to take a few walk breaks, but next time I promise I will do a lot better. I’m already looking forward to our next run together.

Today we’re only 4 weeks away from our trip to San Francisco, and I am so freakin’ excited! I want to start packing right now, haha.

Do you have any fun plans for the summer?
Are you good at getting enough water?

8 Thoughts on “Good sweaty week

  1. Such beautiful running areas πŸ™‚ I love the picture of you and Dad together.
    I sweat buckets always lol I have been doing better drinking more water and less soda, I can’t quit all together, but the past few weeks I have cut way back. It had been so hot and humid I never made it past four miles all week, but I guess it’s better than nothing.
    I would be super excited for vacation too! Start your list!! I have never visited California.
    Glad you are feeling better!

    • Thank you, Karen <3
      Congrats on that! Lucky you who can have both. I find it so difficult to balance water and soda, hopefully some day I can enjoy both haha. Hey, as long as you run it's all good πŸ˜€ With the warm weather and crazy humidity it's always hard. So 4 miles is great! πŸ™‚
      I have made a bunch of lists haha πŸ™‚ Now I just need to make the "final list" all nice and categorized (i love making lists haha). Me neither, it's going to be so much fun, I'm so excited πŸ˜€
      Hope your week has been a good one <3

    SF is a great city! I just ran Bay To Breakers there last month.

  3. Always feels good when you have a solid week. There are always things we can complain about but we have to focus and celebrate the positives.

    We are headed to California tomorrow for some beach time and amusement parks, should be a lot of fun.

  4. woo.! you’ll be in the US soon. How awesome.! too bad you’re not closer to my area.! but nonetheless, SF is a beautiful area also πŸ™‚
    and yess, girls sparkle, not sweat. haha. and I sparkle A LOT. It’s gross, but I sweat a lot. lol

    I used to be really bad at drinking water, like maybe one cup a day, but now I’m so much better about it since I got this app called “hydro coach”. It really does help.! because it gives me reminders throughout the whole day, and I’m always looking at my phone, so it’s great.! πŸ™‚

    • YES! πŸ˜€ First San Francisco, then New York. I’ve never been to SF before so I’m super excited about that haha πŸ˜€ I love the US, wish I could travel to every single state and city.
      Hahah, no shame in that, I sweat buckets too xD I like to think it’s good for the brain HAHA.

      Never heard about that app before :O Maybe I should get it too πŸ˜€ Thanks for the tip! πŸ˜‰
