Week Recap: May 11th - 18th

May 18, 2014

This week was all about getting back into running/training after being sick last week. No tempo runs. I took one more rest day on Monday so I could ease back into training. I was nervous for my run on Wednesday, afraid that it would feel pretty bad, but it didn't at all so I am happy. 

One exciting thing this week was this email:

Even if I am not going, it still sounds cool!

Sunday: Rest day

For Mother's Day we had dinner together, gave her presents, then went on a family walk.

Monday: Rest day

Tuesday: Cross train + Strength train

40 minutes of cycling. 
30 minutes of strength training. I didn't use weights since I still felt pretty weak. I did push ups, lunges, squats, crunches, etc. 

Wednesday: Easy run

50 minutes easy

New Lululemon is always exciting.

Thursday: Cross train + Strength train

30 minute swim which was 1200 meters.

Followed by 30 minutes of weights where I actually used weights.

  1. Glad to hear you're feeling better! That's awesome that you didn't even feel bad on your run. That long run pace is amazing! My coach told me today that my long runs should be in the 8's and I usually run them around 10 min mile haha... but I can't even tell I'm running it's so easy. Do you get tired at all during long runs?

    1. I'm glad too :) I know! I was a little nervous that it wouldn't be good. Not usually, they feel pretty easy.

  2. How cool is that? Just catching up with your blog ... looks like things are going well! :)


I would love to hear from you! Leave a comment below!
