Really cannot believe we are at the end of March already! This week was the first time in a long while that the weather really threw off my training. I am such a creature of habit that I get all out of sorts when I have to switch workouts around. This Weekly Wrap was all about Spring Taking A Break.
Spring Taking A Break
There were lots of ups and downs this week. We started and ended on high note so that’s definitely a win in my book. Here’s how my week went.
Sunday- 10 Mile run
The crew and I headed downtown for a “monumental” run through DC. I admit that even though I only live about 15 minutes away from DC, we rarely go run there. It’s just a hassle with parking etc. We kind of take for granted all of the beautiful scenery. Now we are just 2 weeks out from the Cherry Blossom Race and having this 10 miler done gives me lots of confidence for race day. Definitely the running highlight of the week!
Monday-20 min elliptical and 60 min strength training
A little tired from yesterday’s run we did mostly upper body strength training and stretching. Lunch with a friend then froze my butt off watching my son’s lacrosse game. Lacrosse is supposed to be a spring sport!
Tuesday- 60 min Vinyasa yoga
Woke up to sleet and icy rain. Hello spring where are you? Our morning run was cancelled so I hit up a Vinyasa yoga class and met this little guy.
Wednesday- 30 min elliptical + 90 min kickboxing and strength training + snowy walk 1 hour
We managed to make it through the whole winter without a real measurable snow fall and bam first day of spring here it is. We got about 6 inches I think which hung around long enough to just make a mess. I did get in my usual Wednesday workout and then took advantage of a chance pop on the snow shoes for a few minutes.
Thursday- 1 hour elliptical and abs
My morning run was once again cancelled due to icy roads. I avoid the treadmill at all costs so I hit the elliptical while catching up on some shows.
Highlight of my week-My daughter came home for spring break. I am so so happy that we are all together for the week and it’s her 21st birthday. Best present ever!
Friday-5 mile run
The snow finally melted and I got out for a chilly and windy 5 miles. Some of the Cherry Blossoms are starting to bloom but it sure does not feel like very springlike out there. Froze my butt off at another lacrosse game at night.
Saturday- rest day
So I just wrote about how antsy I get on rest days and today is no different. I did host a group of lacrosse boys for breakfast before their game this morning. That was kind of a workout! I made a chocolate chip French Toast Bake for them and they went on to crush the other team. Coincidence? I think not!
Sunday- on the plan 8 miles
Hope to sleep in and run the last long ish run before Cherry Blossom in 2 weeks. Check out some other Cherry Blossom training logs here.
Really hoping Spring makes a comeback this week! No one likes snow and ice at the end of March. How was your week?
