What Was Planned vs What Happened
Monday 02/11/19: 1.75 mile run | 1.75 mile run + hip strength
I warmed up with 30 each of squats, glute bridges, clam shells and leg lifts plus a quarter mile jog, then did 3 x 400 with 400 jogging recoveries. Short and sweet.
Tuesday 02/12/19: Strength | Yoga + Abs
My friend Penelope came over for a nice tandem yoga workout. I also did a 10ish minute ab workout of my own devising.
Wednesday 02/13/19: 1.5 mile run | 1.5 mile run + hip strength + stretching
1.5 mid-pace miles. Ben had a snow day so I got to do this on my own time instead of rushing to get it all in while Vera napped.
Thursday 02/14/19: Yoga | 1.75 mile run + hip strength + stretching
My friend who usually comes over on Fridays asked to come over today instead, so I got my Friday run done.
Friday 02/15/19: 1.75 mile run | Rest
I had planned to do a nice HIIT workout, but I was feeling run down and Vera was a bit feverish and needy all day, so I just skipped it.
Saturday 02/16/19: 2.25 mile run | 2.25 mile run
I warmed up for half a mile at a nice easy pace, then bumped up the speed one notch every quarter of a mile until I hit 2.25 miles. It was a nice little challenge, but not too hard.
Sunday 02/17/19: Rest | Rest
We went to a birthday party and an indoor water park and had a blast.
Weekly Mileage: 5.75
Total 2019 Mileage: 60.5
Woohoo, another week of 5k training down, and I didn’t miss a single run! It feels so good to have a plan, and to be sticking to it (for once, haha!). I’m starting to think more seriously about upcoming races and what I want to work toward this year, but the biggest thing for me is just getting back to regular running. If that means I just run and don’t put the pressure of racing on, that’s fine. We’ll see. For now, I’m a happy camper.
