Training For Zack’s Place Turkey Trot 5k – Week One
What Was Planned vs. What Happened
Monday 10/01/18: 3 Easy Miles | Rest
Vera and I had a busy day running errands and then Ben had to work late, so I wasn’t able to get a run in.
Tuesday 10/02/18: Core & Arms | 15 Minute Postnatal Pilates & TIU Bikini Arms
I had hoped to make up Monday’s run but it poured rain all day, so I contented myself with some living room strength work instead.
Wednesday 10/03/18: Postnatal Yoga & 4 x 400 | 4 x 400
My lactation consultant came for a visit due to some supply issues I’ve been having, so I didn’t make it to yoga. This was my first “hard” run since Vera and it felt good but, well, hard.
Thursday 10/04/18: Core & Booty | Rest
Vera just isn’t sleeping well right now, and the exhaustion was real. I was basically in survival mode.
Friday 10/05/18: 3 Easy Miles | Rest
I had plans Friday night AND Ben worked late, so no run for me.
Saturday 10/06/18: 3.5 Miles | Rest
Another rough night with Vera meant I was too tired to do anything other than get through our plans for the day.
Sunday 10/07/18: Core & Legs | 3.5 Miles
We had a decent night of sleep, so I dragged myself out for my longest post-baby run without walk breaks. It was kind of a slog, but I’m glad I got it done.
Weekly Miles: 6.5
2018 Miles: 49
Well. Training for my first post-baby race is off to an inauspicious start. I only did two of four scheduled runs, didn’t make it to yoga, and only did one day of strength work. Still though, two runs is better than no runs. And if nothing else, I know I can at least cover the distance at my race without walking.
