Hey friends! Another week of workouts is in the books. I did a lot of lifting this week as I prepped and recovered from the Dam Half. But thanks to that race and feeling pretty good after, I got 31 miles in this week.
Saturday- The judgement free zone with Paul!
Bench Press- 4x8x50lb
Inverted Row- 4x12
Chest Press- 5x15x25lb
Lat Pull Down- 5x10x90lb
Shoulder Press- 5x12x17.5lb
Capt. Chair- 5x20
Stability Ball Pull Ins- 5x15
Stability Ball Sit Ups- 5x15x15lb
Bicycle Crunches- 5x40
Sunday- Dam Half trail race. It was really hard but I felt accomplished when I was done! Race recap here.
Monday- Light upper body at home. There was no way I was running today! I'm giving my body a good two days off from the pounding pavement! I also did some stretching and rolling. Just some good old fashioned TLC!
Tuesday- Same as Monday. When I woke up, my ankles were so sore! They got better as the day went on, but I still didn't want to run on them.
Wednesday- 6 morning miles! My first run back. My legs were tired and I was still a little sore, but it was okay.
Thursday- 6 miles. I felt great on this run! And it wasn't super hot so my legs felt a bit speedy. I think it also helped I got less than 5 hours sleep the night before. Remember, I run really well when I get no sleep!
Friday- 6 miles again. I actually mapped out a route I hadn't run in awhile, but when I was .1 miles into my run, where I could've turned right (newish route) or went straight (to do my 1.5 miles loop)... I went straight! I did the 1.5 mile loop four times. AGAIN. Why do I keep doing this!? I crave the routine, I suppose!
