Manic Monday Training Recap – 04/08/19

Manic Monday

Training For: McClure Miller Respite House Jiggety Jog 5k
What Was Planned vs What Happened

Monday 04/01/19: 3 mile run | 2 mile run
I was worn out after running my longest post-baby run on Sunday, so I called it quits after two easy miles.

Tuesday 04/02/19: Yoga | Stroller walk
My usual yoga partner is on vacation, but I did haul Vera and the jogging stroller down to the rail trail for a 2ish mile walk. It’s still pretty snowy and icy, so we couldn’t go far.

Wednesday 04/03/19: 4 mile run | 3 mile run + stroller walk
I set the treadmill to a moderately easy pace, and threw in four incline intervals throughout the run. It felt hard, which is no surprise considering that I do 99% of my runs with zero incline. I also met my girlfriend Nikki near her in-laws’ place for a stroller walk with the kiddos.

Thursday 04/04/19: Strength | Abs + Legs + Foam Rolling
I did a circuit of 3 x 10 goblet squats, lunges, and single leg deadlifts, then 3 x 10 of various planks, planks variations, and other ab exercises. It wasn’t a lot, but I got a good sweat going.

Friday 04/05/19: 3 mile run | 3 mile run
Not much to say about this one. I got it done.

Saturday 04/06/19: 5 mile run | Rest
We had a busy day with TWO birthday parties, so I didn’t run.

Sunday 04/07/19: Rest | 3 mile run
Not the long run I wanted, but I ran OUTSIDE and it was glorious! And now my quads are really sore because I’m not used to running outside, haha!

Weekly Mileage: 11

Total 2019 Mileage: 114.25

I am SO EXCITED that outdoor running is back on the menu. I can’t wait to get our jogging stroller in action, because Vera naps really well in a stroller. I foresee lots of nap time runs and walks in our future 🙂

This is also timely because I have a race in a month, so I kind of need to get acclimated to variations in elevation and temperature. And sun. And wind. You know, all that stuff that happens outside.
