Manic Monday – 02/16/15


Not to toot my own horn or anything, but this was an awesome week. Lots of workouts, but not at an insane pace, and a pretty good 5k race to boot!

Monday 02/09/15:  Ran 3 miles, with a .25 mile walking warm up. This was my longest run in a while, and I actually felt awesome the whole time. It wasn’t fast, but it was wonderful.

Tuesday 02/10/15:  I decided not to go to yoga when I remembered that Tuesday night is the only night of the week that I just get to go home after work. It was a good choice. Ben and I made tacos, I had a beer, I did some meal prep stuff, and we watched some TV together before an early bedtime.

Wednesday 02/11/15:  Another successful run! 3 miles on the treadmill.

Thursday 02/12/15:  10 minutes incline walking to warm up; CXWORX

Friday 02/13/15: 3 more treadmill miles

Saturday 02/14/15:  RaceVermont Cupid 5k–Recap coming soon!

Sunday 02/15/15:  Rest day. Did some dancing and stretching at rehearsal, but nothing crazy.

I was a slacker on my recovery stuff last week (stretching, rolling etc), so I need to make more time for that this week. My next race is a 10k on March 21, so I’m theoretically following a training plan again, which I’ll talk more about later this week. Here’s my tentative schedule:

  • Monday: Body Pump; stretch and roll
  • Tuesday: Rest; stretch and roll
  • Wednesday: 3 mile run; stretch
  • Thursday: CXWORX
  • Friday: 3.5 mile run; stretch
  • Saturday: Rest; stretch and roll
  • Sunday: Yoga?

Are you training for a race right now? Where do you get your training plans?

Did you have a nice Valentine’s Day?

    Sounds like it was a good week! I’m also trying to remember to stretch and foam roll more, hopefully we can do awesome next week!

    I always have all these grand recovery plans and then slack on them every single time. I think I need people to keep me accountable! I’m so glad you’re out there running and I hope you had a great race on Saturday!
