I'm a little late with LAST week's wrap up but I still wanted to get it up here. My running went great but I'm sad to admit my Best Body Bootcamp workouts got skipped. No excuses, I just didn't do them. Well, I attempted Workout A but Belle required some attention and I didn't get to finish it. The good news is, it's a new week and I'll work harder this week.
So here is what I did achieve last week:
Monday: 3.65 miles to honor the one year anniversary of my running group, RUN365.
Tuesday: 4 x 400 with 800 warm up with Allison.
|For the record, Allison is 12 years younger than me and a collegiate soccer and tennis player.|
Thursday: 5 miles and an end to #RWRunStreak!
Friday: Nothing. Wow, that was weird.
Saturday: Set out for a 40 minute tempo run, ended up just running 2 miles. Fail.
Sunday: 7.5 mile long run. Meant to do 8 miles but my out and back ran short and I didn't feel like doubling back for half a mile.
Now, what do I have planned for this week? Here's what I originally planned:
But honestly, I feel like I need to give my legs a little break, specifically my left leg. My IT band had been a little tight during the streak and although it feels better, I still get some pain sometimes. Also, my inner thigh on that leg bothers me at times to. And for the sake of blog honesty, I have felt a few twinges in my right foot, the stress fracture foot.
Therefore, I'm listening to my body and I'm going to take it easy this week. I plan to focus on my Bootcamp workouts and run if my body says too. Notice I said my body, not my head or heart. My head or heart tells me to run everyday.
My marathon training starts in less than a month and I want to do this injury free. As much as I want to go into training in tip top shape, I don't want to risk anything. I ran one half marathon on a stress fracture and I have no intention on repeating that.
Now excuse me, I have a spaghetti squash to go shred!
have a fabulous week!
