Workouts - Last Week Today - January 15

fontover_201671013354641-1.jpgLast week was my final week of training before running the Houston Marathon.

Today, I set out to accomplish that big scary goal that I had set out to do a year ago - and I finished!  I'll be posting a recap of the race in the upcoming week... stay tuned!

This week was an easy week for me, as I finished out my taper.

Sunday - 6 miles easy

Monday - 8 x 2 min "fast"... a little speedwork to shock my legs.

Tuesday - Yin Yoga.  I had never been to a yin yoga class and was hoping this would help to get me loosened up.  The instructor described this as a class that you needed to get comfortable being uncomfortable.  It was tough... a great class for mental focus! That evening I started feeling a little "off"

Wednesday -  3 miles easy... was on the struggle bus the entire time with this run.  That morning I had decided my "off" feeling from the night before was a head cold.... boo!

Thursday - Rest. I hydrated like a boss between water and "sick" tea, trying to kick the cold to the curb.

Friday - Rest.... more of Thursday's hydration exercise.

Saturday - ABB 5k ... run at easy effort.

Total Miles = 17

I'm linking up with HoHo Runs and MissSippi Piddlin’ for the Weekly Wrap; and Nicole, Annmarie, Jen, and Michelle for Wild Workout Wednesday.

  3. Congratulations on your finish at the Houston Marathon! I'm sure you are still riding that post race high! I am eagerly awaiting all the details. I hope you were able to get rid of that head cold before the big day -- or at least it wasn't a factor. Thanks for linking, Vicki!
