What Was Planned vs. What Happened
Monday 05/30/16: Rest | Rest
I may or may not have spent the entire day in a dark basement binge-watching Harry Potter movies, drinking beer, and eating potato chips. After bawling my eyes out over trying to type up my race recap. I’m obviously very dignified when dealing with disappointment.
Tuesday 05/31/16: Rest | Rest
My quads were pretty shredded, and I was still wallowing hardcore, so I did a big, fat nothing.
Wednesday 06/01/16: Yoga | Rest
I fully intended to go to yoga class, but then I got the news I’d been hired at Athleta on Tuesday night. I was anxious to go in and get my paperwork taken care of, because I knew the rest of my week was pretty busy, so I skipped class.
Thursday 06/02/16: Roller Skating | 4ish Miles Walking
Skateland ended up being closed for floor refinishing, so I met my friends at Citizen Cider for $5 dog-and-a-can night. I walked 3 miles at lunch, and also walked to and from Citizen, so I ended up with somewhere around 4 miles of walking.
Friday 06/03/16: 3 Miles Easy | 3 Miles @ 10:41 Pace
My first run post “marathon.” It was very hot and humid, but I got it done, and felt pretty good.
Saturday 06/04/16: 5 Miles Easy | Rest
We took a pretty last minute trip to Boston to visit some friends for the weekend, and I opted not to bring running stuff along and just enjoy my weekend.
Sunday 06/05/16: Rest | Rest
Weekly Mileage: 3
Total 2016 Mileage: 392.5
This week is all about getting back into a healthy routine. We meal planned, grocery shopped, and food prepped yesterday after getting home, so I actually have healthy, tasty food to eat all week, which is going to be key to success. I have a good idea of the running I’m going to do this week, and I have hot yoga tonight, so things are looking ok. Stay tuned for a post later in the week on what my plan is post-marathon.
Do you ever prep food for the week? Does it work well for you?
