It feels really good to have a training plan in the works. I really enjoyed relaxing over the summer, but now it’s time to get back to it in preparation for Ragnar.
Props to Christina for the kick-ass image 🙂
I have to be honest, I feel like my body was rebelling against me a bit this week. I’ve talked about struggling with feeling exhausted all the time and I’m hoping changing up my daily vitamins (with my doctor!) and cleaning up my eating has helped increase my energy levels over the week.
On top of the fatigue, I’ve also been struggling with aches and pains. Sometimes I can push through and sometimes they mean I pop an Advil and do some yoga instead. This week involved a lot of yoga.
Monday – 5k. It was a struggle, I went before I was fully awake and my legs just never woke up
Tuesday – rest & stretching
Wednesday – off, I headed to Costco instead of speedwork
Thursday – 7.4km at tempo pace
Friday – off, back to Costco
Saturday – off, I had a wedding to get to!
Sunday – 🙁 nothing, headache and aches and pains kept me home 🙁
I had planned on running at least 10km on Sunday, but I really hoped I’d fit in two 10km runs. Well, when my alarm when off at 6:15 on Sunday morning I knew it just wasn’t going to happen. I had a headache (I only had two beers at the wedding, so it wasn’t related to that) and my entire body hurt. I spent a lot of time stretching in the hopes of an afternoon run, but it just wasn’t in the cards for me.
My original plan was to fit in as many lunch time runs as possible this week, but the weather just isn’t cooperating.
No, I don’t want to talk about the forecast for the first three days of the week. Ew. No.
I’m hoping I’ll be able to fit in runs Thursday, Friday and Saturday (yes, I know three days in a row is a lot, but I need to do what I can) as I’m traveling on Sunday to Lima, OH. Yay?
I’m also going to try to hit up a yoga class on Tuesday evening to help with my aches and pains.
What’s the weather like where you are?
What does your training plan look like for the week?
