The first full week of May is over, and as usual we had some days that felt like summer and others that felt like winter. Pretty typical for this time of year! There was some rain too, but at least the wind died down. My schedule allowed for some extra stroller runs which was a nice change. I spent the week enjoying solo miles and stroller miles!
Weekly Run Down: Enjoying Solo Miles and Stroller Miles
Monday: 4.7 Stroller Miles + Core
It was a rainy start to the week. We were able to sneak out for a run between the showers. It was perfect timing because right as we were getting home it started raining again!
Tuesday: Strength Training + 4.5 Stroller Miles
This was my first strength training session in over a week. After lots of squats and hamstring curls, my legs were a bit tired for my run. But the weather was good and we got out nice and early!
Wednesday: 5.5 Solo Miles
Since Grayson would be at daycare all day I got in my run before he woke up so I could make the most of uninterrupted work time. It was warm and humid at 5am! But at this point I would rather it be warm than cold. I wore some of my gear from last week’s Pittsburgh Marathon Relay and tried on my medal for the picture.
Thursday: Rest Day
It was my one day in the office this week so it worked out to be a good rest day.
Friday: Strength Training + 4.5 Stroller Miles
I did my strength workout early and then we went to the park for our stroller run. Of course that meant lots of stops at the playground!
We ran a total of 4.5 miles but with all the stops it took us about an hour and a half. It was a fun morning though!
Saturday: 9 Solo Miles
The forecast was calling for rain starting at 7 or 8am. I figured I would plan to try to finish my run by then, and wasn’t too worried about getting caught in the rain. It held off until after I was done and then started coming down pretty steadily. I ran lots of hills on some roads I haven’t run in awhile. It was a good, but challenging run!
Surprisingly, my legs felt ok after this run. It was my upper body that was sore! But I think it was from strength training on Friday. Pretty sure chin-ups were the culprit!
Sunday: Planning for 3.6 Family Miles
I’m getting this post done early, but we will probably do our usual 3.6 or so family stroller miles to kick off Mother’s Day!
I also got some awesome new gear from Brooks last weekend that I started wearing this week. Lots of fun colors and light spring gear! Now if only it would stay warm enough so I could actually wear it all!
It was a good week with a nice mix of solo miles and stroller miles! Happy Mother’s Day to everyone celebrating!
