This week felt really thrown off because of the holiday on Monday. After last week’s tough workouts + race on Saturday + 10 mile trail run on Sunday I made Monday a rest day. Other than some cleaning and meal prep I really did rest quite a bit that day! So moving into the rest of the week, I had another race on Saturday so I figured I would take it easy leading up to that. The race went well, but it was EXTREMELY humid so my pace felt much harder than it should have. Given the conditions, I was really happy with my time and a PR.
That race recap will probably be up next week, because I still need to post about my 5k from last weekend (which will be up tomorrow)!
Tuesday: Strength training + 3.82 easy miles
Wednesday: 6.1 miles for Global Running Day
Thursday: 4.2 easy miles + core/glutes/hips
Saturday: .5 mile warm up + 10 mile race (1:18:10)
Sunday: 45 minutes yoga for core and hips + core exercises
Total: 24.62 miles
Walked: 24.5 Push-ups: 3 days
Yearly Total: 1022/2016
Yoga felt really good on Sunday, and I need to figure out a way to incorporate it into my workouts more regularly. It just always seems to be the first to go when I get busy!
Not sure what this week will bring, but I have 2 weeks until another 5k. I’m thinking it would be good to get in a track workout, but I also want to make sure I give myself enough time to recover from the race.
How do you manage workouts when you are doing races every few weeks?
Anyone else race or do a long run in the humidity on Saturday?
Do you schedule yoga into your routine regularly?
