Hello from the road. Back to back travels again this workout recap and again from San Antonio. This thank goodness was a recovery week so less intense workouts. Let me tell you I need it the last 2 weeks have had some pretty challenging workouts. Let’s talk recovery week!
Tuesday: I love recovery weeks! 35 minutes today for 3.2 miles at a 10:50 pace. Nothing fancy just regular old treadmill running. This hotel gym doesnt have a foam roller 😦 but they do have cold towels! This is a new one for me but much appreciated! Now to just get a foam roller and all will be well with the world. 10 minutes standard post-workout stretching but nothing extra that night.
Wednesday: 50 minute run with negative splits. First 25 minutes at 11:06 pace last 25@10:31 pace ended with 4.61 miles. Legs felt fine breathing was OK all in all a good solid run for once!
Thursday: Recovery run, 45 minutes at 11:09 pace ended with 4 miles. Pretty boring and uneventful run. I did not want to get out of bed today but I knew I was going to be spending a lot of time sitting at the airport and in the car so I got my miles in. 15 minutes stretching / foam rolling / yoga poses that night. My body is ACHING right now.
Friday: Rest day! From working out anyway. Im only home for 2 days then its off again for a work trip. So while there is no running today I still had some things I needed to get done 😛 15 minutes stretching / foam rolling / yoga poses that night.
Saturday: today was a normal long run, except I tried a larabar as pre run fuel and had to cut the run short to hit the restroom…whoops! No more morning larabars lol. Ended with 5.7 miles at a 11:13 pace. Oh and it was freaking hot so I wasn’t super sad to end the run early
Sunday: Rest day! I’m in nyc this week and took today to walk around the city and central park. I ended with about 7 miles! Thank goodness it was a beautiful day in nyc.
Monday: Rest day! Although my coach put a workout for today in but must have been late last night because I didn’t see it when I checked at 10pm. I moved that workout to tomorrow since I won’t have time anymore today. Work travels make it almost impossible to get an evening workout in. It’s OK I had some logistics to deal with this morning so it all worked out fine in the end.
CHIME IN!!! What do you do on recovery weeks? Had any intense training lately? How did your workouts go this week?
