Weekly Recap: January 16th-22nd, 2017


  • Rest Day

My brother and his friend were driving from Colorado to Illinois and they ended up stopping here at 3:40 in the morning. I stayed up super late waiting for them and woke up really late, so I didn’t get around to doing anything on Monday.


  • Easy 2 miles
  • The second half of the No More Trouble Zones workout

I had planned on finishing that video last week, but life happened. Oh well, at least I finally got it done! Maybe next week I’ll even be able to do the whole thing without having to break it up haha.



  • 3 Miles
  • 35 minutes of yoga

Nothing fancy, just a foggy 3 mile run and some yoga to stretch out my legs and loosen up my hips.



  • Intervals

Yay did my favorite interval workout on Thursday! I changed it up just a little bit, to make it 6 miles instead of the usual 4. I warmed up with 2 miles (instead of one), did 40 minutes of intervals (instead of 30), and ended with around 1.2 ish miles of a cool down. I was kinda hoping to PR my 10k time, but I was off by almost 2 minutes. Oh well, it was still a fun workout. πŸ™‚



  • Rest Day

Spent most of the day doing errands, that was exhausting enough without a workout haha.


  • 3 Miles

I wanted to do a long run on Saturday, but that just wasn’t going to happen. My legs felt like lead and I wasn’t in the right frame of mind to go long, so I settled for a slow 3 miler. At the very least, it’s better than nothing!


  • 2.5 miles

I’m really glad my speed work on Thursday went well, because all of my other runs have kinda sucked. Or at least that’s how I feel today…oh well, I’m still moving and that’s all that matters! 

Total Weekly Mileage: 16.73

I’m falling off track with for my goal already. That’s not very encouraging this early in the year, but at least I’ve got some time build my fitness and then running milage. I’m going to make this happen, I’m going to run 1,000 miles this year (positive affirmations are always a good thing, right? πŸ™‚ ).
