This month I did more runs over two miles. Since joining the Discovery Run group, I've started working on being able to run a 5K with as few walk breaks as my knee can handle. I might be running my first fun 5K soon ;)

The last week of September has been a busy one - challenging my ability to get workouts in.
Sunday - We helped a friend celebrate her birthday on a junk boat ---> did you see my hula hoop skills on Instagram?
Monday - I had a Hong Kong Hosts meeting and ran errands in Central. Night run with Discovery Run group.
Tuesday - I had a laser hair removal appointment ---> sprinted to catch the ferry (workout for the day)
Wednesday - Got my SUP board (price reduced on Amazon) back in the water
Thursday - Went to the American Women's Association Welcome Back Breakfast at the (yep) American Club
Friday - Exercises in the pool and some relaxing too
Saturday - REST (almost ran but it was stormy)
Sunday - went for a morning walk
Looking ahead: October is the month I get back on my carb cycling wagon and really focus on strength. There's a new Faster Way to Fat Loss group starting on October 16th. If you have been thinking about joining and are looking for a way to reboot your body (like I needed), take a look at my results. I have been carb cycling for over a year now and it is the easiest way to maintain my weight.
How was your week? month?
What are you looking forward to in October?
