This week was somewhat of a challenge in some ways, but I’ve actually been looking forward to this training recap. You might have seen that I was a bit under the weather this week and so I skipped a run but did lots of cross training.
Monday: I felt pretty gross but met Erika at MCM Mama Runs (it was her birthday! – I’m also linking up with her Tuesdays on the Run post) for a Pure Barre class. I actually felt much better after class, but per usual with summer colds, by the time nighttime rolled around, I felt exhausted. I decided to forgo my Tuesday run and try to shake my cold for good.
Tuesday: I hung out with my mom and made use of my parents’ pool. I’ve swam less than I like this summer and it felt good to get in there.
Wednesday: I took it back to Pure Barre and probably walked about three miles.
Thursday: Since I was feeling better, I headed to the treadmill and ran 10×400 — it sucked. Ugh. That’s all I really have to say about that! Okay, it wasn’t horrific. But I don’t think it’s a secret that I do NOT like the treadmill.
Friday: Pure Barre again – I typically only go 2x a week, but I really liked going three times this week!
Sunday: I moved my long run to Sunday this week because I had some morning commitments Saturday and couldn’t swing it. I had 10 miles on the schedule and left for the run way too late. It was hot and absurdly humid. I hated every single mile of that run, no lie. I cut a mile to finish at nine miles because it was so miserable and I honestly needed to sit down with cold water. The best thing about that run was finishing. We’ve all been there, right?
So that was my training recap for this past week – can’t wait to read about your training. And of course, HAPPY LABOR DAY!
How was your week?
