Weekly Recap March 7th-13th, 2016

Monday:

  • 10 minutes (2.4  miles) on the stationary bike
  • 2 mile run (30 minutes of run/walk intervals with the husband)
  • Ab work
  • 10 minutes stretching/foam rolling

Ab work was KILLER on Monday! We only made it through twice instead of three times like we’ve been doing.

Tuesday: 

Damn I got my stretch on today! My quads were absolutely dead though, so it was necessary. At first I wasn’t entirely sure why they were so sore, but after checking Garmin Connect I think it had something to do with a not so great night’s sleep. Originally I wanted to do 20 easy minutes, but I cut it short to a mile because I felt pretty awful.

Wednesday: 

  • Rest day

My hip was hurting a bit on Wednesday so I took the day off. That ended up being a good call, as my hip feels fine now! Haha I guess my body was trying to tell me that I really needed a rest day.

Thursday:

  • Easy-ish 20 minute run in the morning
  • 30 Day Shred (Day 14)
  • 2 miles of run/walk intervals
  • 10 minutes stretching/foam rolling in the evening

Busy busy day! My first run was supposed to be easy, but I decided pushing it a little bit on the hills would be fun (and it totally was!). Second run was with Luke. We’re still doing 1 minute run/1 minute walk intervals for 30 minutes. I think he’s ready to increase his running intervals but he doesn’t want to yet. That’s fine with me though, I’m just happy he’s running with me! 😄

So I’ve really fallen off the 30DS bandwagon, but I’m totally getting back on again!  I also need to get back into stretching every night. Haha I’ve got a lot of things I need to work on…

Friday:

  • 30 minutes (7.7 miles) on the stationary bike

Did Friday’s workout in my pajamas, so that was fun. Haha cotton gets really hot…

Saturday:

Starting to increase my long run again. Yay! Now if only I was faster…I’m working on it though. 😉

Sunday:

  • Rest day

Total weekly running mileage: 11.66

Not exactly my best week, but it definitely wasn’t my worst. I desperately want to FINALLY get over my injuries so I can start increasing my mileage and doing more speed work…patients isn’t exactly one of my strong points. Especially since I’ve been having issues for a while now. Cambered roads have been the worst thing to ever happen to me.
