Happy Sunday and I hope that you all had a great week! I enjoyed the mild temperature this past week but I was just told that we got 7 inches of snow last night – ugh! I’m currently in Cleveland where it is freezing so my love affair with 50 degree weather is over, lol.
This week was somewhat of a cutback week which was very much appreciated after peak week #1 last week. Today marks one month until the Shamrock Marathon – how did that happen?! I’m starting to get really excited for race day 🙂 Here’s how my workouts went this week.
4 mile run + 60 supermans.
My legs were still a little tight from Saturday’s long run so I took the pace nice and easy.
2 mile run + strength training (30 minutes) + 60 squats.
It was Fat Tuesday so these socks were very fitting for the occasion!
Boot camp (60 minutes) + 60 russian twists.
Boot camp class was great but she focused a lot on upper body and squats – ouchie!
I also went to a lunchtime Ash Wednesday service. I’m giving up chips for Lent.
6 mile tempo run + 70 supermans.
I was able to nail this tempo run (probably because my legs felt rested).
14 mile treadmill run + 70 squats.
I was flying out to Cleveland in the afternoon so I wanted to get my run done before I left.
Rest Day (but I still did 70 russian twists).
It felt great to wake up on Saturday morning with absolutely NOTHING to do! I’m in Cleveland for a girls weekend with my best friends that I only get to see 1-2 times a year. I wanted to have as much free time as possible to spend with them.
In the afternoon we went to go see Black Panther. I don’t go to the movie theatre often (maybe like once a year), so for me to go to the theatre means I REALLY want to see a movie. Black Panther was such a good movie and I highly recommend it!
GrooveRyde Groove Cycle class (50 minutes).
Even though it’s a fun weekend, we still had to get a workout in! This class was awesome – super high intensity and the instructor used light arm weights for some of the songs. If I lived here I would totally take classes at this studio!
Total Weekly Mileage: 26
Total Training Cycle Miles – 239
Grade – A
A huge decrease in the amount of miles from last week but I think my legs are very happy about that 🙂 Overall my workouts felt pretty good this week. I have also been keeping up with my core work daily. This week I made it to mile 13 on my long run before my back started to feel a little uncomfortable and I was happy about that. It seems like I’m able to get further along in my runs before any pain starts.
I’m honestly having such a great weekend. I didn’t realize how much I needed this break. Sometimes a good 3-day weekend is necessary for a reset. Next week is my 2nd peak week of training and then I enter my taper period – I can’t wait!
Did you have a good week of workouts?
