Monday - 4 easy miles with the run group. Legs were feeling Sunday's 21 miler.
Tuesday - Rest day, Hard Core Yoga in the p.m. Finally made it to this class, which is saying something because it's at 5:30 all the way across town. Loved that the room was a little warm with so many people in it and that we got to play with hand stand and bridge variations on the wall.
Wednesday - 4 miles in the a.m., p.m. Lifeforce Fitness
Thursday - working late, made it for 4 miles with the SPEED group. Did a little bit of the workout, but not the entire thing. Getting some speedy miles in is better than none!
Friday - 3 speedy miles before dawn + short abs/push up sequence. A whole lotta walking around campus for meetings today.
Dark, rainy, pre dawn running path AKA my happy place
Saturday - 6.5 miles w/ 13 x 100m hard efforts
Sunday - 12 miles in a downpour + foam rolling and stretching. I wanted to go a few more miles, but it was completely miserable out and those last few miles were getting pretty cold and no fun. Kept the pace right around marathon goal pace.
Total miles: 34
Overall, my runs this week were shorter than I would have liked, but I was effective with my packed schedule. When I did run, I focused on harder efforts to get the most bang for my buck. Now if only the weather would behave...
With two weeks to go until race day, I need to remember to keep stretching and foam rolling a priority. And of course, no getting sick!
Today kicks off fall term for me and Mondays are especially fun with an afternoon Chemistry class and then Anatomy & Physiology II from 6-9 p.m. I'm glad that it's taper time so I won't feel too bad if I have to fit in shorter runs or heaven for bid, miss a run. ;) It will also be a test to figure out how to properly fuel as I don't want to be eating dinner at 9:30 p.m. So far, the plan is to bring small snacks to keep me satisfied and awake.
How was your Monday? Or your favorite part of your weekend?
After a few errands, we stayed home watching football, listening to the rain/wind outside, doing some baking and laundry, and just laying low. It was a good reminder on why I come to love fall when it rolls around.
