Another week and this time almost all of it was at home! Not as much running this week because I missed Sunday, but that’s ok I don’t mind so much. Also, bonus, I got to spend some quality time with the puppies! I needed it probably as much as they did 😀
Tuesday: Since I ran my “long” run yesterday, today turned into a rest day. No complaints here though! This is what I did instead of running…plus 15 minutes stretching / foam rolling that night.
Wednesday: Another new to me run, negative splits! Distance was 3.8 miles with the goal of the second 1/2 of the run to be 30-40 seconds faster than the first 1/2. My first mile was rough going but each mile from then on was faster. It was also cool again so it made this run easier…not easy but not stifling 🙂 I also went to the strength training class later that day. I meant to go to the core class (its not as high intensity) but my brain is fried and I went at the wrong time…oh well it was a great class a lot of arm work which I needed. 15 minutes stretching / foam rolling that night.
Thursday: Rest day from running but I decided to try out a new class, Body Pump. Funny story…we did a lot of the same exercises as yesterday but with 100 squats. I knew I was going to be paying for this tomorrow but I’m losing tone and I want it back. 15 minutes stretching / foam rolling that night.
Friday: Rest day and date night! I did take the pups on a 20 minute walk but it was too gorgeous outside not to! No stretching or anything tonight, so sore from yesterday!
Saturday: I was scheduled for 8 miles today…so that didn’t happen…my legs were so sore I did 3.2 instead. i thought maybe the muscles would wake up and cooperate after a mile or so but that just didn’t happen. Rather than risk muscle injury, I came home. I was disappointed but don’t want to get injured so its all ok. 15 minutes stretching / foam rolling before going out that night.
Sunday: 2.75 mile recovery run…but more of another run since yesterday didn’t go as planned. Ended with a 10:32 pace and was thoroughly uneventful…which was totally fine by me. 10 minutes stretching that afternoon.
Monday: Rest and travel day. Good thing there was no workout the flight was rough and I ended the day still feeling off. Thank goodness for earl of sandwich
