This week totally flew by for me and it was a busy one! With the Cherry Blossom 10 miler less than 3 weeks away, this week is our Peak Cherry Blossom Training Week. I have been sticking to my training plan and feeling pretty good-knock on wood. Here’s a short recap of my week in training. Just found out that Garmin is now an official sponsor of the race so I should have some more fun stuff to share on that front soon.
Peak Cherry Blossom Training Week
Sunday- long run day 9 miles
Tough wake up over here after Daylight savings time! Why does one hour just feel like so much? Feeling surprisingly good out there with my crew. It helps that so many of us are training for the same race and using the same training plan.
Monday- 15 min elliptical + 60 strength training + Vinyasa yoga 60 m
Did mostly upper body today because of yesterday’s longer run.
Tuesday- 5 mile run
It was another crazy windy day out there which made it feel a lot colder. We did manage to find a few Cherry Blossoms starting to bloom.
Wednesday- 15 min elliptical + 90 kickboxing and strength training
Challenging workout today! My legs were shaking to stay in this position. Truth be told, I had a few falls before finally getting it
Thursday- 4 mile run + 60 min restorative yoga
That March wind was at it again but thankfully I had a lot of ladies with me to distract us. I fell asleep for a few minutes during the legs up the wall portion of yoga class. Oops!
Friday- 60 m Vinyasa yoga class
Feeling like all of this yoga is really helping me to feel healthy and and strong. I am also thinking I might actually be improving my form a bit.
Saturday- Rest Day
I always get so antsy on rest days and have no idea what to do with myself! The hubs and I had a daytime movie date to see Red Sparrow.
Sunday- on the plan 10 mile run
10 miles on tap today. Will be the longest run I have done in a while. We have a fun route planned through the DC monuments ending up at a Bakery. Perfect way to end the Peak Cherry Blossom Training Week!
That’s a wrap on this busy Sunday. Tell me-ever fall asleep in yoga class? Plan your long runs to end up at a bakery?
Hope to see for tomorrow’s Meatless Monday (5 Layer Mediterranean March Madness Dip)
