Jumping in for another week’s recap with the fabulous Tricia and Holly. This week’s Weekly Wrap Taking it Easy pretty much sums up my week. I mentioned in my Runfessions post that September was my highest bike and run mileage in a long time. I also realized after last weekend’s 10K that I needed a bit more rest than I was giving myself. This past week was about taking it a little easier. Getting hurt is not in my plan with Ragnar quickly approaching.
Weekly Wrap Taking It Easy
Sunday- 10K race
First 10K of 2017! It was fun to meet up with Kathryn and Mar and Erika for a “net downhill” race. While the race was net down hill the last 2 miles were on a highway of sorts on an upward trend in the blazing mid 80’s heat. I did not feel it until the next day, but my achilles and shins were not happy with me afterwards. So happy to feel like I am “back” with my running.
Gotta love the sweaty boobs pic right? ^^^^
Monday– 1 mile treadmill run, 60 min strength training
Tuesday– 4 mile run
As soon as I started my morning run I knew my achilles was tight. Cut my planned 6 miles down to 4 and called it a day. Lots of rolling and stretching ensued.
Started my Girls on The Run season. My nervousness about having so many girls (almost 70) to corral was unnecessary because everything really went so smoothly. I have some great girls this season who seem to really be excited about running and being there.
Wednesday– 1 mile treadmill run, 90 min kickboxing and strength training
Thursday-4 mile run
Shins and achilles still feeling tight. Cut my planned 6 down to 4 again. It was a really windy day which caused me to notice this American Flag flapping in the wind. I stopped to take a photo and realized that there was a 9-11 memorial right there that I had never noticed before. Funny how we can pass by something hundreds of times and never notice it until you do.
Girls on The Run coaching.
Friday-Celebrated National Coffee Day with my friend and then headed to an (easier) hot yoga class. I was looking for a class with a lot of stretching and not too much holding poses. Feeling much better afterwards.
Took another rest day and it just so happened to be a holiday for me so perfect timing.
Sunday– on the plan group run. Will see how the legs feel today.
Upcoming this week:
Meatless Monday: Overnight Berry French Toast Bake (serious yum you do not want to miss).
