Thanks to the time change, a few days off from work, and a busy wedding weekend, I am all thrown off about what day it is. I’m just popping in to share my workouts from last week as well as a treadmill tempo run that I followed on Monday.
Monday: 5 mile tempo run
We had some crazy winds on Sunday night so I decided to go to the gym on Monday morning. This was my first real treadmill run in a while, so I made up a workout to help pass the time. It helped me adjust to running on the treadmill again at various paces.
Tuesday: Strength training
I don’t remember much about this workout. It was my last week of phase 3 of my training plan!
Wednesday: 3.1 miles easy
Back outside again, which felt good. I kept the pace really easy and stayed close to home on a pretty flat route.
Thursday: Strength training and 30 minute spin bike
I knew my week would be thrown off, so I decided to get in a little cross training with my strength training.
Friday: 12 miles
I was off from work in preparation for my sister’s wedding on Saturday so I did my long run on Friday. I was out the door before 6 am and I felt like most of this was in the dark. It was hilly and definitely hard at times, but felt good to get it done.
Saturday: 30 minute elliptical
We had to be ready for hair and make up by 7am so I just did a quick 30 minutes on the elliptical in the hotel gym. We don’t have too many pictures from the wedding yet but here is one of me and Rob. (I didn’t have my phone with my for most of the day and this was the only picture I took!)
Here’s one of the bride and groom stolen from Facebook!
We were pretty tired from all the wedding festivities so just kind of relaxed all day. Rob’s parents stayed with us an extra day so we both took off from work on Monday too. I didn’t even watch the NYC marathon but was so excited to see all the updates about Shalane! She is so inspiring.
I’m glad to have the day off to prepare for the week ahead! I started to feel like I was getting a cold this weekend so fingers crossed I can fight it off.
