Workout Recap 5/10-16

After some tough treadmill sessions last week its a recovery week!  I do have a tough looking run on Tuesday but the rest are “normal”.  Working on getting my butt back into the gym.  Lets see how it all went.

Tuesday:  Tempo run day!  Its  been a while since I’ve done tempos for this long.  My legs felt fine but with humidity was causing me some breathing issues.  Warm-up with 15 minutes easy running (3×20 second tempo picks ups through out) then 4×4 minute tempos with 1 minute rests between each then 15 minutes cool down.  My tempos ended up being around 8:59 the goal was 8:56 so not too far off.  I think next time I need to remember to plan the time workouts into my watch so I don’t have to keep checking it all the time, that can get annoying.  It was so hot today I used some ice to try and cool my face down, hello beginning of summer weather 😛  15 minutes stretching / foam rolling / yoga poses that night.

so freaking hot

Wednesday:  Rest day, because the schedule said so.  I was going to go to core but I was so sore from Monday…yeah I know its a problem.  When I got home I took some photos for a post I have coming up, here is a blooper from that!  Silly dogs, oh and he almost peed on the camera…dogs, am i right 😉

Thursday:  3.75 miles today with an average pace of 10:30.  The goal today was to gradually build the heart-rate and I did just that.  With the humidity making its wicked comeback its not hard to get the heartrate revved.  It did take about a mile to get the legs all nice and shook-out from Tuesday’s tempo run but they made it through just fine.  So happy I’m running pain free right now!  This is my “sup” pose…clearly it needs some work 😛  15 minutes foam rolling / stretching / yoga poses that night.

Friday:  Took the puppies on my recovery run today.  Finished with 2.88 miles at 12:10 pace…yeah slow I know but I was trying to keep my heart-rate in zone 1 (under 145) and the humidity was fighting me tooth and nail.  The puppies sure were happy though, they haven’t been on a run in a while so they were all smiles!  15 minutes stretching / foam rolling / yoga poses that night.

happy puppies

Saturday:  Rest day.  I have an early morning flight to Orlando and the rest of the day was spent walking around ***DISNEY***.  So not really a rest day, but a rest day 😉  I think I ended the day with 5 ish miles, and a ghost that followed me home!

Sunday:  My long run from Saturday was pushed back today…but I didn’t do it.  I was so tired from the long day yesterday and not eating the best so I opted to sleep some more instead of getting up early.  I ended up walking a little more than 9 miles yesterday so I think that more than made up for the 6 miles I was supposed to run.  I saw all of the Flower and Garden festival with a post on that coming soon!!!

Monday:  My Sunday recovery run was moved to today…you know how pushing things back goes.  4 miles at a 11:00 pace on the treadmill.  I was pleasantly surprised how fresh my legs felt after 2 days of lots of heat and walking.  I also was not bored out of my skull for those 44 minutes…thank you Glee 🙂  I may have missed yesterdays run but I got it done today!  Also thank goodness for no one in the hotel gym I like to workout alone and then take silly mirror selfies with no judgement thank you very much! 10 minutes stretching / yoga poses that night plus 10 push ups

    In July and August I get up at 5 am so I can run around 6. I’ve considered getting up earlier a couple of times. I do my very best to avoid the sun and humidity during the summer months. 😆

        Right?! I know waking up earlier than 5 would be terrible, but sometime I think it just may be worth it! Haha I’ve yet to do it though. 😉
