I promised I’d get back to sharing my training logs…even if they sucked. Last week was my first week back after being sick, and my training could have been better. Just thinking about what I’m about to write, I know I need to cut some of the extraneous workouts to focus more on the running.
Monday: Jess had me scheduled to spin, so I went to Flywheel via ClassPass. The last time I went to Flywheel, about a month earlier, my score was a full 40 points higher. Being sick DEFINITELY affected my ride last Monday — my legs also felt super sluggish.
Tuesday: Rest day scheduled!
Wednesday: I was scheduled to be on our #DB365 workout at work. Don’t worry, I put out all the fires with this fire hydrant.
Thursday: lost a battle with the snooze button and had evening plans
Friday: 4 mile AM run with my friend Camille // PM Uplift Sculpt Fusion class for NYJL event
Saturday: Had plans to get out and run 5 before heading to the beach with friends and once again lost the battle with the snooze button. I did surf, though. Sorta workout? The conditions weren’t as good as my first time: SUPER crowded, and with high tide, the waves were really short.
Sunday: Oh man. This run was hell. Had 12 on the schedule but only made it to 10. Once again, I wanted to sleep some more, and I went out too late. I know better than to do this…but I still did. I left around 9:30, and it was already a realfeel of 96 with humidity in the 90th percentile. SWEET running conditions. I fought through those 10 tooth and nail and threw in the towel at 10.
OK, so I didn’t realize I only ran twice last week. That’s not good. It’s time to buckle the eff down. Thankfully I still have another 12 weeks.
This week’s goals:
- Get all my runs in
- Don’t overcommit to extraneous workouts
- Focus on nutrition (I’m guessing Saturday afternoon’s nachos MAYBE didn’t help fuel me the best for Sunday’s run)
- Focus on sleep (the snooze wars are showing me that may be an issue)
- Foam roll!
How was your week of training?
