Happy Sunday and Happy Mother’s Day! I hope that all the moms out there have a great day full of love, laughter and delicious food! 🙂
I’m happy to report that I bounced back from last week. I made a conscious effort to go into this week with a positive mindset and leave my bad week of training in the past. I’m thrilled with how training went this week.
Started off the week with a Core Fusion Barre class at Exhale Spa (thanks ClassPass)! I think my legs were shaking for half of the class so it was definitely a good workout.
I also received a really cute belated birthday gift from a work colleague (she knows I love penguins). It definitely put a smile on my face after a hard weekend!
4 mile run and I completed another Rock ‘n’ Roll Virtual run and earned my MP3 medal. I’ll definitely share of photo of it once it comes in the mail!
3 mile run + boot camp class (60 minutes)
Rest Day. I met up with friends for Happy Hour after work. I knew I would not want to work out after, so that’s why I did my run on Wednesday this week.
8 mile run. We were due to get a ton of rain on Saturday (which we did) and since today is Mother’s Day, I decided to get in my last “longish” run after work. It’s definitely not ideal to run 8 miles after work, but the weather was great and my legs felt SO much better than last week!
Rest Day. The great thing about running on Friday was getting to take the day off on Saturday!
Body Works + Abs class (45 mins) with my mama! Great way to kick off Mother’s Day and end the week!
Total Weekly Miles – 15
Total Training Cycle Miles – 177.2
Grade – A+
I’m thrilled with how training went this week – absolutely thrilled! I was super nervous about my run on Friday, but it went well. I did take a few walk breaks, but overall I was very happy with the pace and how my legs felt. I’m happy that last week didn’t repeat itself!
Unfortunately I think I am dealing with a small case of runner’s knee in my right knee. It’s been a little wonky on and off for a few weeks. I’ve dealt with this before so I know what to do. Of course the best thing to do is to rest it – but since I have my race next weekend, that’s not really an option. Luckily my training this week will be pretty light so I don’t think I’ll aggravate it too much. I’m also going to ice it every day as well. I think it will be fine for this week and I’ll re-evaluate how it feels on Sunday.
What were the highlights from your week?
