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.
I've really been missing my #crossfit workouts lately, but between work and my rehearsal/show schedule, it's been tough to make the time to get to class. Thankfully, my old flame, #running, is always waiting with open arms. I can fit a quick 5k in on my lunch break, and still have time to clean up, change, and eat. I'm gonna need the endorphins to get through this week.
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 🙂
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?
