I was so ready to get back at it after Spring Break last week. I was ready to get back on schedule. Get it my runs and my cross training. Win Fitbit step challenges. That didn’t happen.
Saturday – 10 miles (9:40 min/mile) My gal, Katie was still in town, so we got to do a long run together. We have the same goal for Indy Mini, so we were really happy to get a training run in. We started off great and were really looking forward to some negative splits, but when we turned around at the halfway point we realized we had the wind at our back to start. We were running straight into some strong headwinds that slowed us down quite a bit. Fingers crossed for no strong wind on race day.
Sunday – rest
Monday – 20 minute cardio warmup on the elliptical before Group Power. It was the start of a new routine on Monday and I really liked it. I liked the old one, too, but the new one is different. It took out one of the moves I don’t particular like and there added some plyo! I love incorporating plyo! And I definitely felt the workout afterward, so it’s a winner!
Tuesday – sick day. I had planned to meet some friends to run, but Pumpkin was having a meltdown, so I decided I’d probably just go in the afternoon. Well, I ended up feeling sick shortly after the time I was supposed to leave, so I was couch ridden the rest of the day.
Wednesday – recovering from sick day. I had planned to go to trail run group on Wednesday night, even though it probably wasn’t the best idea since I hadn’t really eaten much for two days. But a friend needed me, so I skipped the run to be there for her. Which was for the best. I needed the recovery time.
Thursday – 5 easy treadmill miles (9:20 min/mile). The rainy day forced me inside, so I put on some HGTV and cranked out 5 miles. It wasn’t the 7 I had on the schedule, but I got it done.
Today I had planned to swim laps, but a bunch of gals were going to yoga, so I decided to join them instead. It was a little more mellow than I thought it’d be, but the stretch felt good.
I’m feeling better. I’ve eaten food and I’m hoping tomorrow’s long run goes well. Next week is a sort of taper week since I have a half marathon next week. Though I was planning on treating this race as more of a training run, so I don’t plan on backing off too much. Fingers crossed I stay healthy.
