Happy Mother’s Day to all you mom’s and mom’s-to-be! Special shout out to my saint of a mom. I’m so happy I get to spend the day with her. Last I heard she wants us to go on a family run before brunch, sounds good to me!
Here are my plank-a-day photos for Jen’s challenge. The first 7 days were full plank variations and now we are moving into forearm planks/variations. Because I’m writing this on Friday I’ve only done Sunday – Friday of planks.
Sunday: Wings For Life World Run (11.6 miles). When I say I was not prepared to run that far, I mean I was NOT prepared to run that far. I took 2 naps and spent most of the day on the couch compression-wearing and eating. Just goes to show how a gradual build-up to long runs is the smart way to approach training.
Monday: Yoga at Rina Yoga. I had the opportunity to try out a new-to-me yoga studio in Miami courtesy of PeerFit. PeerFit is a ClassPass-like system in Florida that is affiliated with SO many studios, some of which I haven’t seen on the ClassPass list (although I haven’t used ClassPass). This was a pretty easy class with lots of stretching, which is all I wanted to do.
Tuesday: Off. I expected to be ready to run but my legs were still sore from Sunday. I had an exam this morning anyway so resting/being lazy for the rest of the day worked in my favor.
Wednesday: Spin. Last Spin class of the semester! I took it really easy and just told everyone to crank up the resistance ;). If I didn’t have to teach I probably would have taken the day off again.
Thursday: 5 miles. My legs felt mostly normal and I did a lot of foam rolling after the run.
Friday: 5.5 miles. I did one last run around campus before leaving. While I love my running routes in Miami, I’m super excited to be able to run in NYC this summer.
Happy Sunday! xo
