Oh man, this workout was tough, but a lot of fun! Let’s Go is the perfect album to listen to while doing intervals haha!
- Easy 2 miles
- 5 minutes of stretching/foam rolling
My legs were kinda sore from Monday’s workout, and I was dealing with some crazy gusts of wind on Tuesday, so this easy 2 miler really didn’t feel all that easy. But I got it done and now I’m 2 miles closer to my goal of 1,000 miles in 2017!
- Easy 5k
- A few minutes of stretching
Wednesday’s run was super uneventful, actually. But I suppose sometimes that’s a good thing. 🙂
- 4 snowy miles
They were supposed to be 4 easy miles, but the snow makes everything a little more difficult. That’s ok though, running in the snow may be hard, but it’s lots of fun!
- Rest Day
Thursday’s 4 miler ended up being kind of a hard effort, I decided it was best to take a rest on Friday. Especially since I wanted to do a long run on Saturday.
- 8 miles
- 15 minutes of stretching
The first 3 ish miles of this run were a total suck fest. After that it was pretty good though. 😄 I also made a new puppy friend during my last mile! Some guy was out shoveling his driveway and he had his lab out with him. As I was running by the dog saw me, ran right up to me, and sat at my feet. So obviously I had to pet him. The guy apologized, but I didn’t care, I was kinda secretly hoping the dog would come say hi to me so I could pet him anyway.
- Rest Day
Total Weekly Mileage: 21.12
And with that the first week of January has come to an end! I’m currently on track with my goal of running 1,000 miles this year, but it seems like the first week is always the easiest. We’ll have wait and see how motivated I actually am to reach my goal when summer rolls around and it starts getting crazy hot…but I hopefully I’ll have until late May/early June before it will really start heating up, so I’m definitely going to make sure I get in as many miles as I can before then, but as long as I’m at the 500 mark in June I’ll be right on track and very happy.
