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?
