And my fitness recap…
Sunday: 3 Mile run
Monday: Bodysculpting. We worked each body group separately and made our muscles shake!
Tuesday: 4 mile run. It was supposed to be 6, sigh. Honestly, I really wanted to run outside and checked the radar and such. It ended up raining and my calves were very tight all day, so I just did 4. It ended up that I wouldn’t have even had time for 6!
Wednesday: Interval Sculpt. We did 6 different circuits with 4 exercises. We finished with core and lots of stretching!
Thursday: 40 minute tempo run on the treadmill. I woke up early to get this one in! I knew I didn’t have time to do it after work because I had errands to get done, so I woke my butt up early. I ended up feeling pretty good! I started off slower and then kicked it up for about 30 minutes to a pace I want to run for the race (good news it the treadmill kept me at that pace!) and finished with a cool down run at the end. All before 6:00 am.
Friday: It was supposed to be a rest day. However, since I ran early Thursday, my legs felt good after work. I decided to tackle my 9 mile long run today instead of Saturday morning. I did the first 3.5 on the treadmill (had some blogs to read and it passed the time) and finished with 5.5 on the trail. I was shocked at my times when I was outside. I guess I was pushing myself a lot ha but I really was impressed with my time. however, my legs hurt all night and in the morning Saturday so my long runs will be slower from now until the race.
Saturday: I had hopes for a 3 mile shake out run but my legs still weren’t feeling great. Aaron and I took a walk on the trail, nice and slow with coffee and tea in hand. Ideal.
Sunday: I’m hoping to get my 3 mile slow run in today! We’ll see. I’m definitely not trying to overwork my legs, and 9 miles was the furthest I’ve run in months, so I’m not trying to push it!
