I usually post my training recaps from Sunday through Saturday, but I’ve been thinking it may make more sense to track them as Monday through Sunday. Usually Sunday is a rest day so it doesn’t matter either way. However, it seems like lately I have been doing more Sunday runs and why would I want to wait a whole week to share them? So this week’s will be Sunday through Sunday….Here we go.
Monday: 3.2 miles easy, core work
Tuesday: 5.1 miles: Fast-Finish Focused Workout, myrtle routine
Wednesday: 3.71 miles, core work
Thursday: Strength training/Plyometrics and The Dozen Core Workout, PM: 30 minutes yoga
Friday: 9 miles
Saturday: Rest (20 minutes really easy yoga)
Sunday: 6.1 miles and Runners 360 from Build Your Running Body
I was planning for this to be a cut-back week, and I ended up running almost as many miles as the previous week. However, that is due to counting my Sunday run in last week’s mileage. I really ran 27 miles over 8 days versus 7.
When I went to write this post I had a hard time remembering exactly what core/strength work I did each day, so it’s not very specific. I should probably start keeping better track of that!
I was really happy to get my 9 miles in on Friday morning to kick off the long weekend. This was my longest run since I think January.
On Friday night we went down to DC with my family to see the Nationals’s game. My dad was able to get tickets for a suite through work!
And there were fireworks after the game…
On Saturday we had everyone over to our house since my aunt and uncle were visiting from New York and wanted to see our place. We went out to dinner at a local restaurant, which was really empty! I guess everyone else was grilling out for the 4th.
Sunday was spent getting stuff done around trying to catch up on things before the work week begins again. We ended the day eating some barbecue at Kloby’s. I can’t believe the long weekend is over already!
