Hello, hello! This is a very happy Sunday for me because it means I survived my long day at work yesterday :) Getting up at 6 a.m. and not running was different for a Saturday morning, so I’m very glad that’s over. This week of workouts was pretty good, but the common theme was exhaustion. Not running related, because my runs felt strong, but just general exhaustion from less-than-normal sleep. I switched up a few of my workouts last-minute and opted to “sleep in” for an hour or so. Hoping to sneak in a nap today before the chaos begins all over again tomorrow.
Monday: 5 miles. My stomach/body felt a little weird after traveling the previous night so this run helped me mentally and physically get ready for the week ahead.
Tuesday: Hot yoga. I went to 6 a.m. yoga again and despite being tired, I found it to be incredibly awakening. Not as much as a run, but it did its job. I just knew my body would feel better after going and I was right.
Wednesday: 7 miles in the morning + spin at night. I had 8 miles on the schedule but snoozed my alarm for 15 minutes so I had to cut the run short. Spin that night was great and I had a packed house despite the rain!
Thursday: Rest. Normally I run on Thursday’s but decided to switch it up in favor of sleep.
Friday: 6 miles.
Saturday: Rest. I was on my feet more than I would have liked because of my work event.
Sunday: 16-18 miles. I’m writing this on Saturday night and kind of getting nervous for tomorrow. I’m giving myself a range of mileage so I can base my distance on how I’m feeling. Hopefully when you read this I will have successfully finished!
