How is it Monday again already? It feels like I was just writing last week’s weekly recap of my workouts. However, when I look back over the past week it actually has felt rather long, maybe because we have experienced all four seasons over the past few days it seems like. Lately I am constantly checking the weather on my phone because it’s been so unpredictable!
This week was the first time since the fall that I have seen the sun starting to rise while I was running. This makes me feel like spring is coming! (Although once daylight saving time starts the mornings will once again be dark for a few more weeks.) This weekend also brought temps up into the 60s! Such a treat for this time of year, although my only run was on Saturday and it was still in the 30s when I was out there.
Here’s how my workouts looked this week:
Monday: 4 miles easy + core work. I woke up to snow, but I was able to run wearing my yaktrax. I ended up getting the day off work due to weather, so that was a great way to start the week!
Tuesday: Strength training. I decided to stay indoors when I looked out the window and saw that my street was a sheet of ice! We ended up getting a 2 hour delay as the ice turned to rain and then it warmed up to 50 degrees, so all the ice melted.
Wednesday: 4.1 miles easy + core work. Back to a normal work schedule and it was a balmy 30 degrees! (With no wind, so it felt warm.)
Thursday: 3.3 miles– this run was a struggle for some reason. I was just tired (maybe missing my morning cup of coffee) and it was cold again. However, this was the day that I saw the sunrise at the end of my run!
Friday: 3 miles + 20 minutes yoga. I debated if I was going to run, but got dressed to work out and figured I might as well get outside and see how I felt. This was another really cold morning!
Saturday: 7.1 miles + core work. I had to be ready by 8 to leave for a baby shower in NJ. I was planning to do 6 miles but got a little turned around and also felt good so ended up doing a little more. Even though it was only in the 30s, I could tell it was going to be a warmer day, and it reminded me a little of morning runs in the spring!
Weekly Total: 21.5 miles
Push-ups: 4 days Miles walked: 18.1
Yearly Total: 289.78/2016
