Workouts - Last Week Today - March 12

fontover_201671013354641-1.jpgI had a solid week of running this week.  I continued with my plank-a-day and went to yoga class.  I only ran three times this week, had planned on 4, but got stuck at the office late 4 out of 5 days.

I don't know what it is, but this week my runs have felt harder than usual.  I have been neglecting my foam roller and eating out more than I should.  I'm making it a priority to foam roll and eat cleaner this week... hopefully that will nip it in the bud.

I am also trying to transition my running days so that I can have a rest day on the weekend. A full day of leisure, just sounds dreamy now... we'll see how it works out.

This is how my week ended up:

Sunday - 5 easy miles... I set out to do 8, but a few miles in I just wasn't feeling it, so cut it short. 1:00 plank.

Monday - Rest day.

Tuesday - Yin yoga class. 1:00 plank.

Wednesday - Rest.  1:00 plank.

Thursday - 3 miles easy. 1:00 plank.

Friday - Rest. 1:00 plank.

Saturday - 10 mile LSD. 1:00 plank.

Total Miles = 18

I'm linking up with HoHo Runs and MissSippi Piddlin’ for the Weekly Wrap.

  1. I think we all have weeks that seem harder than others. For myself, I can usually attribute it to hydration...if I'm not hydrating enough (or, sometimes, too much LOL), my legs get puffy (from water retention) and I feel sluggish. Of course, there are certain weeks each month (if you get my drift) that I keep an open mind on all of that LOL

  2. We all have hard running weeks from time to time and I'm confident you'll bounce right back. I had a full day of leisure today and it did feel dreamy. I should definitely do it more often. Thanks for linking, Vicki!

  3. I definitely have weeks, days actually, that seem harder than others, especially when it comes to running. I always look at it this way - for every hard run, the universe owes you 2 great runs! :)

  4. Great week of workouts. I did yoga today but then had pizza later tonight. I need to clean up my eating as well.

  5. I definitely have some weeks when running feels hard - usually it's a sign to cut back. I've been slacking on my planking - need to get back to it!

  6. The cut back week usually mends it!

  7. I always feel better when I eat cleaner!

  8. Great way to look at it!

  9. Thankfully, the good weeks outnumber the hard weeks.

  10. I hadn't thought about hydration... and you are totally right about those weeks each month!
