This felt like a long, strange week as we were adjusting to our new schedule. There were still lots of miles, just not as many stroller miles. The weather finally realized that it’s actually spring and I was able to wear shorts on all my runs. I also got lucky and had my rest day scheduled on a rainy day. Here’s how the week looked overall.
Weekly Run Down: Adjusting to Our New Schedule
Monday: 5.3 Stroller Miles + Core
Tuesday: Strength Training + 6.2 Miles (4 Treadmill, 2.2 Stroller)
Wednesday: 6.3 Miles with Hills/Strides + Core
Thursdays: Strength Training + 3.6 Treadmill Miles
Friday: Rest Day
Saturday: 10.2 Miles
Sunday: 3.7 Miles + Core
I lifted on Tuesday and Thursday this week, but technically I also lifted last Sunday but counted it for last week. Still, that was 3 sessions over 5 days. I have been increasing my weights and this phase has me doing alot of chest presses and deadlifts. It feels good to push myself but it’s also left me a little sore.
We did one of our longest stroller runs ever on Monday! 5.3 miles! I remember once when Grayson was 11 months old I took him out for a short run and he fell asleep after like 2.5 miles. So I ended up running 7 that day while he slept. That was the only time he has ever slept in the jogging stroller. I’m not sure what happened this week but I was feeling good and he cooperated so we just kept running. It probably helped that the weather was so nice.
Long Run Saturday
I was excited to see that it would be in the 50s on Saturday morning, and the forecast wasn’t showing any rain. It was super foggy when I started. After about 8 miles I stopped to take a picture. I realized I was drenched as if it had been raining! I ran 2 more miles and got home to see that there was 100% humidity. Well that explains it. This was still a good run, although I did feel a little sluggish. It’s going to take awhile to adjust to humidity again.
Adjusting to our new schedule
Grayson started daycare this week and goes on Wednesday, Thursday and Friday. So we probably won’t be doing stroller runs on those days anymore. It also means that my workouts will need to happen before he wakes up. It will basically be back to what it was like in the winter when I wasn’t really running with the stroller. It’s just too bad because now it’s finally nice enough to get out with him most days.
And that’s about it for this week! I’m just slowly increasing my mileage and enjoying the warmer weather (until it gets too hot!).
