Another week has come and gone, so it’s time for a quick recap!
Monday: The Runner 360, 3.2 miles easy, myrtle route, foam rolling PM: 35 minutes yoga
Tuesday: 4.1 mile easy, Strength Building Moves For Runners
Wednesday: Strength workout
I completed the routine above using 5, 8, and 25 pound weights. (I only used one 25 pound weight and it was for the deadlifts). I also used the Spri board by balancing on it on one foot whenever possible during standing exercises. I completed the push-ups with my feet on the board and the planks with my elbows on the board.
Thursday: Planks/core/stability work, 5.1 miles with 4 at tempo, Foam rolling
Friday: Oiselle dozen, 3.25 easy, drills, myrtle, foam rolling
Sunday: 11 miles on the NCR trail
The plan for this week was to start out with short, easy runs after Sunday’s 5k. I felt like I recovered well, but made sure to include a strength day without any running on Wednesday. By the time the weekend rolled around, I realized I hadn’t taken a full rest day since last Saturday. There was also a strong chance of rain on Saturday, so I decided to move my long run to Sunday. (Typically I don’t mind running in the rain, but I wanted to check out a new trail and didn’t know how it would be if the ground was wet.)
Sunday was definitely a hot one! I drove to the NCR trail which is about 20 minutes from where I live. It was nice to be in the shade, but at the halfway point I definitely noticed the humidity. I’m not sure if I would have done 11 if it wasn’t an out and back!
Anyway, it was weird doing my long run on a Sunday, although I did enjoy having another Saturday as a rest day! Sometimes I feel like it’s just what I need after making it through the work week. Although there is something to be said with getting the long run done first thing Saturday morning 😃
How were your workouts last week?
