Thank you to all who entered! If you didn't win, I would definitely look into buying some compression shorts for your overall running and fitness health.
On to the regularly scheduled program: My Weekly RUNdown
The holiday excitement has hit full force at my house this week. Besides that, I was out of town for a wedding Thursday through Saturday so it messed up my normal running routine. I only made it for 3 runs this week and ended up missing my long run. It's my own fault. I chose sleep and shopping over sweating. I should regret it, but I don't. I plan on hitting things hard this week to make up for it. Plus, for the first time in weeks, my legs actually feel good!
Monday: Hills with Mindy. 5 miles (260 ft. gain) 9:10 pace.
Tuesday AM: Yassos! 4 sets: 3:10, 3:11, 3:18, 3:14. Ran on a real track at the high school and enjoyed every step! So much smoother to run on than the track I've been using. 5 miles total.
Tuesday PM: IT Band strength training- glutes, hips, quads, and calves 1 hour.
Friday: 5 miles on the Tread Mill- 8:12 pace. Alternated between running somewhere between 8.5 and 10 and then recovering on a 7. Running inside is HOT! Sex and the City kept me company though and that was good times. I still would have preferred to run outside.
Last Week's Goal: Strength train twice a week. FAIL. I did do it once, though! I worked out during the Biggest Loser and that helped with my motivation. Plus I actually did something rather than sit on the couch and eat junk food. (Why that usually happens to me during that show I don't know, but it does).
This Week's Goal: Strength train twice a week. I have a feeling this might have to be one of my goals for a few weeks in a row. The good news is that there are going to be 2 episodes of the Biggest Loser this week (Tuesday and Wednesday) so I think my chances of hitting my goal this week are good :)
How was your week? I want to hear about it! Besides race reports, this is my favorite part about blogs- hearing about YOUR workouts.
