Workout Recap 11/1-7

Its back to back race week!  Training is a little lighter preparing for that.  Its also get excited time because for basically 2 weeks Ill be at a Disney park.  This weekend at Walt Disney World and next weekend at Disneyland!!!  Coast to Coast in less than 2 weeks.  Silly, yes…worth it, ABSOLUTELY!!!  Let’s talk training shall we?!

Tuesday:  Regular run today with a focus on form.  Well it should have been a focus on form but I always forget to pay attention to my feet when I run.  I know I should but when I get in the zone I just forget I cant help it!  Ended with 3.5 miles for an average pace of 11:17 and didn’t feel too bad for once!  15 minutes stretching / foam rolling / yoga poses.  I will not skimp on the stretching this week my body needs all the TLC it can get 🙂

Wednesday:  Taper run today, although someone explain to me how this is a taper…15 minute warm up with 4x90second pick ups and 10 minute cool down.  Ended with a 10:43 average pace and completely drenched in sweat.  Come on winter where you at?!  Oh and I voted today.  Yup just put that into a workout post #sorrynotsorry.  Make sure you get out there an exercise your right as a US citizen.  Anyway…15 minutes stretching / foam rolling / yoga poses that night.

Friday:  Today is a short run day but I ditched that in favor of walking around the food and wine festival with my girls.  Its always more for to exercise when you have a drink in your hand right 😉  10 minutes stretching / foam rolling / yoga poses that night and off to bed early for a 3:15am wake-up call.

Saturday:  Today is race day #1!  10k day yay!  Im dressing up as Megara because she is sassy and fun.  Full recap to come soon but my time was 1:12:23.  This run was a “training” run so no PR or time goals this go around.  I ran with Brittany since we were in the same coral and she does the run/walk method which my coach said to do this weekend.  Its been so long since I’ve run with a friend I forgot how nice it is!  15 minutes stretching / foam rolling / yoga poses that night.

Sunday: Race day #2 and half marathon day!  I decided during the 10k to run the half with Brittany again and Im so glad I did.  Running with a friend got me out of my head and focused on running with her instead of how miserable I was.  I also really enjoyed the run/walk method.  I did it in the past but stopped for some reason.  I think Im going to start training that way again because I felt great after the race.  Full recap to come soon but its the best I’ve felt after a race let a lone a long run in a very long time.  We finished in 2:37:07, which was a little slower than we were hoping for but its ok it was really sunny at hot the last 4 miles and that always takes a toll.  10 minutes stretching / foam rolling that night.

Monday:  Well deserved rest day but we are still at Disney so there was still a little bit of walking.  Today I also head back home so its also a travel day.  Only a few more days until I do this all over again in California lol.
