Hello from Rhode Island! I’m here for a hot minute visiting family and it feels like the quintessential New England summer. I didn’t/won’t have much time to enjoy the beach but at least the scenery is pretty.
Workouts were blah for most of the week. I was exhausted, crampy, bloated, moody (can you catch on?) and all I wanted to do was sleep. My knee felt off yesterday after sitting for 5 hours on the ride up here (#ihatetraffic) so I bagged my run. Hopefully I’ll get one in today before I leave.
I’ll talk about this more next week but I want to get on a better running schedule. It’s really hard when I don’t have a set work schedule but I know I need to be better at spacing out runs and incorporating strength work. I’m on the hunt for a new-to-me marathon training plan with actual workouts (think tempo, intervals, speed, hills, etc.) and not just easy runs. Still only 4 days a week and not really high mileage…suggestions?
Sunday: 5 miles on Father’s Day with my father (and mother!). We were visiting family in Pennsylvania and the hills were INSANE. We ended up walking a few of them.
Monday: 4 treadmill miles. This was the first time I stepped on a treadmill since I’ve been in the city. That’s almost a month of treadmill-free runs! I’m spoiled.
Workout 1 (partner workout):
Run 6 x 400 (split between partners)
AMRAP 10 wallballs, 10 situps
My mom started with running a 400 while I did AMRAP of 10 wallballs and 10 sit-ups. When she was done running she took over and finished my round of strength and I ran a 400. We repeated until we each ran 3 400’s. It took a little over 16 minutes and we were sweaty.
8 minutes AMRAP
-20 alternating KB swings
-10 burpees (I hate burpees)
-15 goblet squats
Friday: 6 miles. My legs were really heavy from the class so it was a slow run, but a good one nonetheless.
Saturday: 20 mintues of upper body weights.
