I really suck at this weekly recap thing. But I like having it, and I like sharing tidbits of what’s going on in my life too. So, when I REALLY start training for NYC, I will plan on posting once a week. SOMEONE hold me to that.
Week of April 21
Monday: Boston Strong 3.33 miles (29:26) at Big Peach. I was happy to see some of my TNT friends out bright and early. Boston Creme donuts were an option, and even though Lent was over, I declined. I had to drive all all over South GA the rest of the day and listened to the marathon on my ipad. Totally safe, I promise (yes, I was pulled over for the finish). Tuesday: 3 miles on the treadmill in Valdosta, GA along with about 20 minutes of strength training. House of Cards gets me through travel workouts.
Wednesday: 6 mile tempo in the morning followed by private pilates in the afternoon. A run date that can keep up with your tempo and treats you to coffee? Perfect way to start my day.Thursday: flywheel
Friday: travel/rest day. No workouts, but plenty of sightseeing.
Saturday: Garmin 1/2 Marathon with Kim. I seriously love pacing people!
Sunday: 4 miles (34:54) around the Highlands early morning followed by a Barre3 class. Spent my day cleaning up the condo grounds with the rest of the owners and then went to the Inman Park Festival, only to get caught in MORE rain. At least I found Olive a new dog bowl??Total Mileage for the Week: 29.43 miles
Week of April 28
Monday: 4 miles (34:35) on the Beltline.
Tuesday: flywheel and private pilates. My pics on instagram stirred up lots of convo. Pull ups at pilates are my FAVORITE thing and we do them every week. I’m currently at 15 and hope to continue to add on. Here are more pics and the series. Wednesday: 6 easy morning miles (53:37) around Piedmont Park and the Beltline.
Thursday: rest day and sports massage. I cannot recommend seeing a sports massage therapist enough. Will always seems to find spots that I didn’t even know were sore.
Friday: Travel day and then a 3 mile shakeout run (25:58) with Corey and all the bugs.Saturday: 1 mile warmup up plus Wisconsin 1/2 Marathon. I ended up buying 2 of the race pics and plan on putting one (or both) in my office. For your entertainment, feel free to check out the ugly cry face. Told yall.
Sunday: 3.79 miles (32:39) with Corey along the lake in Chicago. My legs didn’t hurt nearly as bad as they did after my big PR at Kiawah in 2012. I’m in much better shape. We went to brunch after and I got to meet Chanthana IRL before heading back to the ATL.
Total Miles for the Week: 30.89
Talk about a jam packed 2 weeks. Two racecations, a HUGE PR, local running events and my regular routine. Life is so full….I love it.
Have you done back to back race weekends? Are you able to run one for fun and race another? Have you cried at the finish of a race? Pullups- have you tried them lately?
