Happy Tuesday! Can we call this hump day since it is a 4 day week? You might have read if you keep up with my periodic rambling – I mean writing – I’m upping the mileage. Super exciting to be able to run and feel good doing it! If you get injured, be a good patient and DO YOUR PHYSICAL THERAPY EXERCISES! Just my suggestion 🙂
Of course, I am not a doctor, so listen to yours and they will get you back running!
Monday: 5 miles followed by physical therapy and stretching.
Tuesday: 3 short miles with some hill work thrown in, biceps, triceps and core
So hot in my gym this time of year!
Wednesday: 6 miles with physical therapy and a few hill inclines on the treadmill. Of course followed by physical therapy exercises and lots of stretching and foam rolling.
Thursday: I wanted to take a couple rest days from running so that I could attempt 10 miles on Saturday. So I did a full body weight circuit with core thrown in at the end. I am always so much more hungry after a long strength training workout than I am after a long run.
Bennie is always a good stretching buddy.
Friday: No running today either. Instead I did 15 mins on the elliptical, 15 mins on the step mill, back, and a 15 min cardio/ab circuit from the Nike Training Club app. Love that app when I am feeling bored and want to switch it up.
Saturday: I was sooooo nervous about this run! But I finished incident and pain free. Then went home and iced and stretched and foam rolled the daylights outta my legs.
Saturday night I had some friends over for dinner which was so much fun. I spent the afternoon sprucing up my little porch. It doesn’t get nearly as much TLC as it should haha!
Sunday was rest, rest, and more rest. I did do Romwod every day this week as well. I think it will help me avoid injuries due to tightness in the future. At least – that is my hope.
I use Lauren Fleshman’s Believe training journal since I have a #girlcrush on her. Anyone have one the like better?
