Woohoo one more day until the weekend:! Today I’m taking a half day at work, so I can drive down to Columbus and pick up my packet & go to the expo! I hope this day flies by, I CANNOT wait for my race ahhh!
Anyways here’s are my weekly workouts:
Friday ~ Rest
Remember how I said I wanted to get a strength training session in? Yupp it didn’t happen. Instead I ate two big bowls of Cheerios with honey on top. Enter homemade honey nut Cheerios. It’s magic guys, try it.
Saturday ~ 4.5 mile run with hill repeats
This is my first hill training for my race. Well better late than never. My run started out with a .5 mile warm-up, and then did .25 mile run up the hill and run back down for a total of .5 mile for every up & back down. Repeated five times for a total of 2.5 miles of hill work. Followed it up with a 1.5 mile cool down (gah it was a pretty morning) to round out the run. No wonder I haven’t done hill work. It’s hard, but so worth it.
Sunday ~ 6 mile run
Remember this is the morning I randomly woke up at 5:39 am? So, I decided to go for a run, naturally. I ended this work out with some random lunges and side to side shuffles. I don’t know it seemed like a good thing to do and is my lame excuse for strength training. Winning.
Monday~ 20 minute neighborhood walk (active rest)
And naturally I took my puppy along with me!
Tuesday ~ STRENGTH !!
Yeah I kind of can’t believe it either, my strength workout finally happened! Which means since I did one today, I probably won’t for another two weeks or so. I wish I was joking, but I’m really not. Oops.
Wednesday ~ Tumbling class
Just like last week, and really every Wednesday to come, I had tumbling! Minimal shin pain YES! It was also a great class, and tons of fun, just like always.
Thursday ~ 3 mile run
My last run before my race!! Having taken 3 days off, my legs felt a little slugish, so I’m really glad I got one more run in before my race. All I could think about the whole time was, “OMG in two days it’ll be race day!” I feel like a kid in a candy store.
And that wraps it up guys! HAVE A GREAT FRIDAY and cross all your fingers & toes for me during my race tomorrow! Thanks : )
