Manic Monday

Training For: Covered Bridges Half?

What Was Planned vs. What Happened

Monday 07/17/17: CrossFit | 5k Run
I decided it would just be too stressful and difficult to cram a CF class into my lunch break, and zipped out for a speedy 5k between rain storms instead. It was just what I needed.

Tuesday 07/18/17: Run 3 Miles | Rest
I ran out at lunch to get some birthday cards (my mom, dad, and older sister all have late July birthdays), and just relaxed on my lunch break.

Wednesday 07/19/17: CrossFit | Rest
Exhaustion set in big time, so I used my lunch break to just relax.

Thursday 07/20/17: Run 3 Miles | Rest
I took the day off of work, slept for 11 hours, and did NOTHING all day. It was glorious.

Friday 07/21/17: CrossFit | 5k Run
It was a hot one, and my legs felt like cement for the first mile, but I was happy to get another run in this week. I needed some endorphins and sunshine.

Saturday 07/22/17: Rest | Rest
Yay, Ben was home! We spent the day together running errands, I gave him a haircut, and then he came to see the show πŸ™‚

Sunday 07/23/17: Run 6 Miles | 10k Run + 4 Hours Hiking
Note to self: attempting a steep and difficult hike up Mount Mansfield the same day as running 10k is not a great idea. Still, it was a fun day, and I got to spend it with Ben.

Unsurprisingly, my legs and back are absolutely shredded after yesterday’s exertions, and I also didn’t sleep well, so today will be a total rest day. I’m hoping that I can hit CrossFit at least once this week, too. I miss it!

When’s the last time you overdid it with your workouts?

    With how much you have going on, and the stress of the show … you had a pretty awesome week! Especially getting to see Ben for the weekend – so happy for you!

    It seems that Monday has become my rest day – I do my weekend longer runs and then am exhausted, and found pushing it to get out was just starting to be too much. So today I took the extra sleep (same as last week). I find when I do long runs and then Lisa and I go for a long walk (we have been doing 3+ mile walks at least once a week lately), I really feel it the next day.

      Long run + anything extra is a recipe for exhaustion. But Ben and I have wanted to get out for a hike all summer and this was literally the first day we’ve been able to manage, so we just went for it. Enjoy your rest day! I know I will πŸ™‚
