I really can’t believe that it’s Monday night already as I am sitting down to write this- where did the three day weekend go? I can’t complain at all…I got to do lots of my favorite things like run, drink wine, and lay in the sun…but I’ll get to that in a bit. First, last week’s workouts!
Sunday: 90 minutes hot yoga
Monday: 6 x 400s with 400m recovery + warm up and cool down and core work (5.25 total)
Tuesday: 3 miles easy, core work
Wednesday: 15 minutes elliptical, Body Pump, CX WORX
Thursday: 4 miles with hill repeats, core work
Friday: Iron Strength Workout
Saturday: 5k race + warm up/ cool down (7 miles total)…more on this tomorrow
So it was another good week of running! Not much of an increase in mileage, but a little more intensity.
Hopefully I will share more about my race tomorrow, but I’ll start from there and give a mini-weekend recap…mostly in pictures. When I got home from the race my allergies were bad (probably because I was outside for Field Day ALL day long on Friday). I manage to put together something to eat and then I had to lay down for a bit because I felt so awful (luckily I felt fine before and during the race).
Rob was spending the weekend with his dad, so I headed to my parent’s house for the weekend, about 40 minutes way. When I finally got myself together on Saturday I headed over there and laid in their backyard reading before going to church, and then grilling out for dinner.
On Sunday morning I went to a yoga class (another hot class, plus I was laying next to the window in the sun, so it was extra warm!) and it was a good way to recover from the race. I actually wasn’t sore at all, but I really wanted to move and figured I shouldn’t run.
The rest of the day was spent laying out some more, and before long it was time for Sangria.
Around 5 we drove down to Annapolis for dinner and ate at Carrol’s Creek.
By the time we were done with dinner we were pretty tired and full, but made some room for froyo before calling it a night!
On Monday morning I drove to a neighborhood nearby my parents’ to run. I felt surprisingly good and ended up doing 6 miles. Starting out I thought the run was going to be really tough. After the first mile I felt great and just went exploring, got a little lost, and realized it was 8:30am and getting pretty hot out!
After a little more time reading in the sun, it was time to head home and get ready for the week ahead. I think that errands and chores are SO much harder after a long/relaxing weekend!
How was your weekend? Did you get to spend some time out in the sun?
How were your workouts last week?
Do you like getting lost when you run in new places, or do you prefer to know where you’re going?
