Low Miles, a Little Cross Training, and Everything in Between

Well, another training week has came and gone (it has been by far my worst week of training). Thing just didn't fall were I wanted them to this week and partly do to  my lack of motivations( the other part medical). I did start the week out optimistic and then it just quickly unraveled (short story I just let things get in my way). I know these types of weeks are going to happen from time to time but I must confess my inner Negative Nancy has surely gotten the best of me this week. "This next will be a better one and I'm going to get the miles in ," I have to keep telling myself this when I get down on myself. Now, I just have to stop wishing for it to happen and start working for it.

Here,  a little look at how my week went.

I got a great 4 miler in with one my best sole sisters. It's always an awesome time when we get to run together.

Doctors appointment and Story/Library time with my kiddos

I tried out this awesome medicine ball interval workout and
 it had me working up a sweat super quick. Here's the link if you would like to
check it out { Medicine Ball Workout }

I had planned on running with a friend but it got cancelled..
 So, I just couldn't motivate myself to get out there and run (epic fail on my part!).

I had another Doctors appointment were they did an Echo done and got  hooked up to
this bad boy for 48hrs (So, there went my weekend long run!). It was also back to school 
night for my kiddos and I got to meet their teachers

Since my long run was out of the equation I just hung out with my kiddos and then that evening we all went ice skating for the first time. I think we will be spending a lot of time at the rink from know on. It was a great workout and the kid had a blast (aren't those little walkers the cutest). 

No Run or Cross Training 
(just couldn't make myself get out the door) 
I did work on this blog post and watched my kiddos play n the pool :0)

Well, in the words of Porky Pig "That's all Folks!" for this last week anyways, lol.
Thanks for taking the time to stop by and read my post.

So, what kind of cross training have you been doing?
Have you ever had a really bad training week? 

Happy Running,

Amanda :0)
