- Easy 30 minutes
Ah, it felt so good outside on Monday! It was kinda hard to keep things easy because I felt really good and the cooler weather makes me want to run harder. 🙂
- Yoga for weight loss followed by a bit of headstand practice
Haha I almost skipped this workout because I woke up super tired, but I’m glad I didn’t. It was another nice day outside, and since I had intervals on the scheduled that meant I got to run a little harder. I ended up having fun while simultaneously wishing for death whenever I had to go uphill. Hahaha it was a strange feeling, but I have a sneaking suspicion other runners have felt the same way.
- 30 minutes of yoga
I’m quite proud of myself! I made up my own yoga sequence instead of following a YouTube video. I did what felt good and I feel like I did more good for myself that way. Winchester didn’t understand why I wouldn’t hold still long enough for him to nap. 😂
- Rest Day
- 2 easy miles
Ah it was so nice outside on Friday! It’s feeling like fall and I’m loving it!
- 10 miles
- 10 minutes of stretching and 5 minutes of foam rolling
First 10 miler of this training cycle! It went pretty well I suppose. The first 8 miles were ok, but the last 2 were absolute hell haha. But I got it done, and hopefully next week will be a little easier. 😄
- Rest Day
Thought I was going to be crazy sore this morning, but I’m actually not too bad! We took the dogs to the park and I felt pretty good! My hip flexors and shoulders are a little stiff though.
Total Weekly Mileage: 17.69
Darn, I was really close to 18 haha, oh well. I’m attempting to get up to 20 miles a week. I’m obviously really close. Maybe next week I guess. 3 rest days is kind of a lot, but I think they were all necessary. Anyway, I’m still happy with how this week went. 🙂
