What Was Planned vs. What Happened
Monday 07/13/15: Rest Day | Rest Day
I was wiped out after my awesome running weekend, so I just took it easy, and went to rehearsal in the evening.
Tuesday 07/14/15: 3 Easy Miles | Easy 5k (pm)
I received some Plantronics BackBeat FIT wireless headphones in the mail through my partnership with BibRave, and couldn’t wait to get out and give them a whirl. It was a gross, humid evening, and it even rained on me a little bit, but I was still happy I got it done. Stay tuned for a review of the headphones!
Wednesday 07/15/15: 3 Easy Miles | Easy 5k (am)
I finally managed to drag my ass out of bed for a morning run! Woohoo! Of course, I forgot that on days when I run in the morning, I’m hungry ALL DAY LONG, and didn’t fuel properly afterwards. Can’t wait for my Everlast VP to get here so I can have easy post-run protein on hand.
Thursday 07/16/15: Run Club Track Workout | 1.5 Mile Warm Up; 6×400; 1.5 mile cool down
This workout was just what I needed. I worked hard, and had a really good time with a few ladies from running club. If I keep going to these workouts, I know I’m going to get stronger and faster in a hurry.
Friday 07/17/15: Rest Day | Rest Day
We ended up having quite a few people over to play with the kitties and have some drinks (I had seltzer) after work, but I managed to still be in bed before midnight, which was awesome.
Saturday 07/18/15: Run Club 5k + At Least 2 More Miles, Hiking | Voice Lesson; 24 mile bike ride
My voice teacher is in SUPER high demand, and scheduling with him is a nightmare, so I just had to take what was available, which meant skipping my run club 😦 Also, the weather was calling for strong rain and thunderstorms all day, so we decided not to hike Mt. Mansfield. But we ended up going for a 24 mile bike ride instead, which was awesome. My legs were toast by the end. We capped the day off with a beach evening on the lake with our friends Andy and Lindsay.
Sunday 07/19/15: Rest Day | 3.6 mile run
If you follow me on Instagram, you saw that this run was not easy. Tired legs, rain, thunder, and trains tried to stop me, but I managed to get it done in the end.
Here’s the plan for the upcoming week:
- Monday: Rest
- Tuesday: 30 minutes run/walk intervals with Emily
- Wednesday: Easy 5k
- Thursday: Easy 5k (no track workout because I’m going to see a show)
- Friday: Rest
- Saturday: 10k race
- Sunday: Possible rogue running club activities
Did you run or race this weekend?
