Happy Sunday! I can’t believe that I just completed week 4 of training. It seems like the weeks are going by quickly, especially this past week! I’m happy to report there was no snow this week which made working out much easier! Let’s see how I did in week 4.
5 mile run to kick off the first day of Spring. This run wasn’t that great because I had a hard time getting my breathing under control, but I was happy with the run overall.
Body Work + Abs class (55 minutes). I was happy to get back to this class this week. Unfortunately my IT band was bothering me all day, so I took it easy in class and did A LOT of stretching and rolling after class. The Roll Recovery R8 roller is ah-maz-ing!
Boot Camp class (55 minutes). Another great class filled with tons of weights, lunges, squats and core work.
4 mile run + hip/glute exercises and more rolling. I had an ART appointment after work that really helped alleviate most of my IT band pain. I did 4 miles on the treadmill after my appointment and followed that up some hip and glute exercises, and more rolling.
Rest Days are the best days 🙂
6 mile run. The weather was cloudy but nice and cool. I really enjoyed this run and was happy with the pace.
Sundays are for double workouts! Body works + Abs class, followed by spinning!
Total Weekly Miles – 15
Total Training Cycle Miles – 51
Grade – A-
Week 4 was pretty solid. I got in all of my runs even though I had a minor IT band flare up. I gave myself an A- this week because I didn’t get in any Yoga, which my body desperately needs. Next week I’m in Minneapolis for a conference from Tuesday-Thursday so I’m going to have to mix up my workouts a little bit. Luckily the hotel I’m staying at has a decent gym!
In other news, huge shout out to all the runners that earned PRs today! My twitter and Instagram feeds were full of runners discussing their PRs and that makes me so happy!
Speaking of races, I have finally decided on my Rock ‘n’ Roll races this year! I’ll be doing the RnR races in Philadelphia, Brooklyn, Montreal and San Antonio. IF you’re doing any of these races, I hope to see you there!
How was your week? Are you training for a race? Let me know in the comments!
