Weekly Recap: May 23rd-29th, 2016

Monday:

So yoga during a thunderstorm is super fun. Just saying. πŸ˜„ Also, headstand practice went super well! I didn’t have to kick to get up and I even managed to do one without using the wall at all!

Tuesday:

So on Tuesday my workout went a little something like this; 10 minute warm up jog, followed by 2 minutes β€œfast” running and a 1 minute recovery jog, repeat 3 times. Then a 3 minute walk, followed by 2 minutes β€œfast” running and a 1 minute walking (was supposed to do recovery jog again, but that just wasn’t happening), repeat 3 times. The humidity sucked but other than that it was a decent workout.



Wednesday: 

  • 30 easy minutes
  • 5 minutes stretching

Well, it was supposed to be easy, but I felt like I was going to die! All this humidity is going to be the death of me. My legs were also super heavy too. Not entirely sure what that was all about. 



Thursday:

  • 1 “easy” mile

Luke decided he wanted to run a mile at 2pm. I think this may have been the hardest mile of my life… It felt like 87 and it was super humid. Those are not good conditions for me. But oh well, 1 sucky mile is better than no miles. 


 

 Friday:

  • 4 mile run
  • Yoga for runners and 1 headstand at the end

Did a 15 1 mile warm up, followed by 3 miles of complete randomness. I was supposed to do a tempo run, but those still scare me and I’ve been feeling kind of off lately. So for Friday I ran up some hills, did some random pickups, walked a bit, and ran at a comfertable pace. 
About halfway through the workout I started feeling kinda sick, though. Like I was coming down with a cold or something. According to my fancy schmacy watch, I’m suppose to take 3.5 revovery days after this workout, and I’m not gonna lie, that feels about right. I’m thinking a few days off is exactly what I need.

Saturday:

  • Rest day

So, not waking up super early to do a long run was kinda liberating haha. Plus my legs definitely need a break. They feel tired/sore/heavy. Well, all of me does a actually, but my legs are the worst. 

Attempting to even out my sports bra tan line.


Sunday: 

  • Rest Day

I woke up super stiff this morning and my back is killing me! I must have slept weird last night…Anyway, I don’t think we’re doing anything today so that’s good! I’m beat!!

Total weekly mileage: 9.92

That would have been closer to 15-16 if I would have done my long run, and that’s what I was aiming for. So at least I know I did good mileage wise aside for skipping yesterday. But sometimes you just need to chill and rest, ya know? πŸ˜„
