Happy Sunday! Week 5 was so-so. I didn’t get in all of my workouts, but I did complete all of my runs, so it wasn’t a total loss. I think that traveling always throws off workouts and that’s okay! Let’s re-cap the week!
5 mile run (treadmill) + an awesome mail day from Pro Compression!
Unexpected rest day due to traveling to Minneapolis. I had a 4am wake up call to catch my flight and then I went straight to the office from the airport. After work, I met up with Lora for dinner which was awesome! I think I got back to the hotel around 8pm, and I was pretty exhausted, so no work out.
5 mile run around Minneapolis! I was able to find a 90 minute window after the conference to get in a run outside and it was glorious. The weather was great and it was a nice way to explore part of the city. Here are a few photos from my run:
30 minute strength workout. I hit the hotel gym before going back to the conference. The hotel gym was SO nice – definitely the best hotel gym I have used. I was able to use the free weights and kettlebells to work on arms, legs and core.
Rest Day. Fridays are usually my rest days, but I was going to try to get in a workout to make up for Tuesday. Between getting home at 7pm the night before from the conference, and then working a full day on Friday, I was just too tired.
5 mile run to kick off my birthday! I was hoping to do this run outside, but it was rainy, cold and windy, so I had to take it to the treadmill. Of course today is nice and sunny – figures!
I was supposed to run 7 miles, but I switched this week’s long run with next week’s. It kind of made sense because next week I’m running a 10K, so I’ll just add a mile to that to make it my long run.
Double Workout Sunday – Spinning and Body Works + Abs class 🙂 It was nice to get in a good sweat session after overindulging the day before!
Total Weekly Miles – 15
Total Training Cycle Miles – 66
Grade – B+
Like I mentioned earlier, week 5 of training was so-so. I am happy that I got in all of my runs, but not happy that I didn’t get in enough strength training this week. I also didn’t get to do any workouts from my DVDs either. I’m back to my regular workout routine this week and I’m looking forward to that very much! I have a busy week at work, but I’ll just work around that.
How was your week? Get in any good runs? Are you training for a race? Let me know in the comments!
