Happy Sunday! I hope that you all had a great week/weekend. We’re gearing up for another week of rain here 🙁 I hope that the weather is much better in your area! Week 2 of training went pretty well. Two weeks down, 18 more weeks to go!
Memorial Day. I was lucky to get in 3 miles in between the rain.
I took off work on Tuesday to extend my long weekend. It felt good to have an extra day off! I took a Pilates class in the morning and then ran 2 miles after the class. My legs were not happy with me!
55 minute Boot Camp class. I sweat so much during class this week. The instructor had a really great mix of cardio, weights, circuits and corework.
I also closed out the month of May with 65 miles. I was pretty happy with that number, but I know it’s just going to increase month after month during marathon training.
Kicked off the first day of June with a tempo run. These runs get easier at some point, right?!
Rest days are the best days 🙂
45 minutes of spinning. This was by far the hardest spinning class I have taken in my life! The class uses RealRyder bikes and they tilt and lean as you ride. These bikes really require you to use your core and it’s so different than your traditional spinning class!
8 mile long run. I ran 2 miles before the Hope in Motion 10 K (race recap coming later this week). Overall it was a good race, but I’ll leave all the nitty gritty details for my race recap.
Total Weekly Miles – 17
Total Training Cycle Miles – 28.5
Grade – A+
Week 2 went pretty well! I was hoping to get in some Yoga this week, so I’ll make a point to get it in next week. I’d like to get in some more strength straining next week as well. I had a lot of sore spots/little issues pop up during my ART appointment this week so I’ve been trying to be diligent and amp up my foam rolling and stretching.
I’ve also been loving the WorkoutSnap App this week. Have you tried it yet? I love that it has a lot of different activities to choose from and you can even add quotes. It also links up to Strava, Fitbit, Runkeeper and Health so it can pull in your activity from any of those programs.
Did you have a good week? Are you training for any Fall races?
