Manic Monday

Training For: VT Corporate Cup Challenge 5k (May 11)and VT Respite House Jiggety Jog 5k (May 13)

Monday 04/10/17: Rest
I took the day off of work to rest and recuperate after my crazy show week for 9 to 5. I slept until almost 11, and then just puttered around the house getting my life back together.

Tuesday 04/11/17: 3 mile run
This was my first outdoor run AND longest run since November. Spring has finally sprung in VT and I had a beautiful, sunny day for runch. Perfection.

Wednesday 04/12/17: CrossFit
I picked a doozy of a day to come back to it after a week and change off. We worked on strict and push presses, and then did a MetCon that made me want to die. Only one person the WHOLE DAY finished the workout, and we have some tough, strong people at our box.

Thursday 04/13/17: 5k Run + Hot Yoga
A twofer! I can’t remember the last time I had a double day. I ran at lunch because I’m trying to get back to a semi-regular schedule. And then I hit up hot yoga before happy hour with Ben, his colleague Megan, and her boyfriend. Double the workout meant zero guilt having a flight of tasty beer samples and a taco bowl.

Friday 04/14/17: CrossFit
Deadlifts for a strength WOD (I PR’d!), and then a MetCon of squat clean/hanging squat clean/thruster complex plus burpees. Oof.

Saturday 04/15/17: Rest
What a glorious feeling to have an entire weekend off! We did our taxes, I did laundry, some cleaning, and played video games. It was delightful.

Sunday 04/16/17: Yard Work
Easter Sunday was mostly a day of rest, but when the sun came out in the afternoon, I couldn’t resist doing a bit of yard work. I raked up some junk, and we had a small fire just burning yard debris.

How was your Easter weekend?

    Loved all the pics last week – welcome back to running, great seeing you fold it into everything else! That will help you avoid burn-out (I hope!)

    I was intrigued to look at TimeHop on Saturday and realize that a year ago I was coming off of being sick and taking a week off – and this year I took most of the week off because of being sick. This year I was smarter and got ahead of it and never needed a day off from work … but then was stupid and did more than 18 on Saturday including hills that shredded my quads, so Sunday I was sore when I headed out (and really, at 14 miles I probably still overdid it!). I ended up taking off again today as I was sleeping the best in over a week and was still a bit sore. I got to cook all three days, got yard work done, and just had a great weekend (and might have spoiled Lisa a little bit as well 🙂 )
