Weekly Recap: August 19th-25th, 2019

This week was a tough one! I ended up doing a lot less than I would have liked, but apparently extra rest is what I needed! So that’s what happened!

Monday:

  • Rest day

Hell. Yes!!

This was one well earned rest day! I killed it last week and was definitely feeling it by Monday! I even ran on Sunday which is something I don’t usually do. Hence the rest day on Monday. Something I also don’t usually do. πŸ˜‰

But yeah, it was great to get to sleep in and not have to even think about heading out for a run or doing a workout. Instead I watched Kiki’s delivery service, did some light housework, and enjoyed ALL OF the puppy cuddles.

Tuesday:

  • Easy 2 miles

I thought I was good to go on Tuesday, but apparently not. What was supposed to be a 4 mile run with interval work quickly got cut in half and the intensity got dialed all the way back.

It just wasn’t gonna happen. My whole body felt off. Not sure if that was because last week was pretty hardcore or for some other reason. Either way I figured I needed to back off a bit. So Tuesday’s run was cut short and after a quick shower I took a very hardcore nap. It was pretty great! 😊

Wednesday:

  • Rest day

After cutting Tuesday’s run short I knew I needed another rest day. Probably should have thrown some recovery activities in there, but oh well. πŸ€·πŸ»β€β™€οΈπŸ˜‚ The rest was definitely necessary though.

And unrelated note, but little boy is starting to walk and his eyes and ears are opening! πŸ˜„

Thursday:

  • 4 miles
  • 15 minutes of Pilates

Felt much better after taking Wednesday off! This run still wasn’t as long as I would have liked to to be though. I was waiting on a phone call about a job, but the guy never called that day. Go figure. πŸ€¦πŸ»β€β™€οΈ

Anyway, did a little bit of Pilates for abs as well. Gotta work that core!! πŸ’ͺ🏻

Friday:

  • Rest day

Another rest day just because I felt like I needed it. By Friday my legs were feeling super sore and tired. Yuck…

The guy did call me about the job though! So that’s good! Before too long I might just be a factory worker for the Clorox Company. πŸ‘πŸ»

Saturday:

  • 5.5 miles
  • 20 minute ice bath

So I finally got my head back in the game and finally realized that I’ve been hardcore neglecting my recovery and that’s why I’ve been feeling so shitty. But that kinda happened during my run on Saturday.

I made it 5.5 miles which wasn’t as far as I wanted to go, but it’s farther than I thought I would make it! 🀣 My legs just weren’t having it. So after my run I did my first ice bath of this training cycle. Yeah, like I said, I’ve been neglecting things like that.

But I did it! And it was terrible! πŸ₯Ά But my legs felt so much better afterwards!

Sunday:

  • Rest day
  • 20 minutes of restorative yoga

Yup! Another one!

Mostly because Sunday’s are always days of rest for me, but also because I’m really just trying to feel normal in my body again. It’s been a rough week and I wasn’t able to do the kind of training that I really wanted to this week.

Anyway, hopefully week will be better!

Happy Sunday!
