Happy Marathon Monday! I’m excited to be off from work today so I can watch the race. Good luck to everyone running!
This week included almost no running but still plenty of workouts. When you can’t run, walk- so that’s what I did. Even though I “can” run I figure while I am waiting for my orthotics I might as well cut back a whole lot, With the nicer weather this week and some traveling I still wanted to make sure to get outside!
I keep track of my workouts in my training journal, but I am writing this post from Missouri and don’t have it with me. So let’s see if I can remember what I did!
Monday: AM: 30 minutes on the spin bike PM: 1 hour yoga
I finally made it to a yoga studio! There is one close to work and I was able to do a new membership deal where I can pay $25 and go as much as I want over 2 weeks. This probably wasn’t the smartest move as I realized I would be pretty busy the rest of the week and then out of town for a few days. Hopefully next week I can make it there a few more times.
Tuesday: 40 minute walk
It was nice out and felt good to get outside! I felt really tired after coming in from my walk, and I am wondering if it has to do with allergies (I’ve been sneezing a lot this week too.) Usually I feel energized when I come in after a run, so I didn’t like feeling tired after a walk!
Wednesday: 1 hour total body strength training
My foot was feeling stiff when I woke up, so I did mostly upper body work. However, once I started moving it loosened up quite a bit. I did do some glute and hamstring exercises with the stability ball.
Thursday: 30 minutes on the spin bike and 45 minutes yoga (at home)
Even though I took off from work I had a non-stop day and didn’t have time to make it to the yoga studio. I had to be packed and ready to leave for Kansas City in the afternoon, along with a bunch of other errands.
Friday: 3 mile walk
We were in Kansas City, MO for our nieces 2nd birthday. (They used to live in Arkansas but moved last fall, so this was our first time visiting.) Rob had a long run of 18 miles on the plan for Saturday, so we went exploring to see where he could run. It sure is a hilly area!
In the afternoon we went to Boulevard Brewery for a beer tasting.
Saturday: 4 mile run/walk
I headed outside to enjoy the nice weather and just did some easy run/walk intervals. I stayed in the development and there is a little trail that goes around it (but it’s only about 2 miles or so). It was a little windy but a nice day.
Then we spent the afternoon celebrating Finley’s birthday!
We went to church and brunch for Easter, and then headed back to Baltimore in the afternoon.
Of course I did my PTT exercises and stretching daily as well.
While spring weather really makes me want to run more, I’m happy to just be spending more time outside. I’m hoping to get my orthotics soon so I can start walking and running in those. I’ve heard it can take some time to adjust so I’m ready to get the process started!
Do you like to take walks?
Has the weather felt like spring where you live?
If you have orthotics, how long did it take you to adjust to wearing them?
Are you watching the Boston Marathon today?
