Another week, another workout recap. It started off on a high note with my longest run since February, which was just the confidence boost I needed for the half marathon this coming weekend. Actually, because I did my long run on Sunday, this was the highest week of mileage in a long time. Next week will likely decrease a lot.
Sunday: 10 miles. I changed up my route for this run and ran along both the Hudson and East Rivers, cutting across Canal street. It was a quiet morning after the 4th so there weren’t many cars to stop for.
Monday: BODYPUMP + CX Works at 24 Hour Fitness. We did the warm-up, squats, chest and back tracks in BODYPUMP before moving to CX Works. I didn’t love all the tracks in CX but appreciated the core work, which I typically neglect.
Tuesday: 5 miles in Central Park. I was surprised with my fast (for me) pace of 8:18 min/mile. Makes me wonder if my Run Keeper app is accurate…
Wednesday: 4.25 miles in Central Park. This was not pretty, but I was bound to have a rough run after a good streak. Just goes to show that every day/run is different even if the route is almost identical! My legs felt heavy the entire time.
Thursday: TRX Cardio Mash-Up. I talked about this class on Friday, but I love using the TRX so this was a good workout.
Friday: 5.25 miles. Slowish but felt better than Tuesday. The last mile it started to drizzle so I ran a little faster to make it back before the downpour.
Saturday: 6.5 miles. I ran from my place to Columbia University and back. I felt smarter just being on the campus. It’s so beautiful! It’s also crazy to me how there is an actual college campus in the city.
Today (Sunday) is yoga/rest/sleep/eat/sun….pretty much my ideal day, especially after working yesterday. Talk soon!
