Workouts – Last Week Today – March 12

fontover_201671013354641-1.jpgI had a solid week of running this week.  I continued with my plank-a-day and went to yoga class.  I only ran three times this week, had planned on 4, but got stuck at the office late 4 out of 5 days.

I don’t know what it is, but this week my runs have felt harder than usual.  I have been neglecting my foam roller and eating out more than I should.  I’m making it a priority to foam roll and eat cleaner this week… hopefully that will nip it in the bud.

I am also trying to transition my running days so that I can have a rest day on the weekend. A full day of leisure, just sounds dreamy now… we’ll see how it works out.

This is how my week ended up:

Sunday – 5 easy miles… I set out to do 8, but a few miles in I just wasn’t feeling it, so cut it short. 1:00 plank.

Monday – Rest day.

Tuesday – Yin yoga class. 1:00 plank.

Wednesday – Rest.  1:00 plank.

Thursday – 3 miles easy. 1:00 plank.

Friday – Rest. 1:00 plank.

Saturday – 10 mile LSD. 1:00 plank.

Total Miles = 18

I’m linking up with HoHo Runs and MissSippi Piddlin’ for the Weekly Wrap.

    I think we all have weeks that seem harder than others. For myself, I can usually attribute it to hydration…if I’m not hydrating enough (or, sometimes, too much LOL), my legs get puffy (from water retention) and I feel sluggish. Of course, there are certain weeks each month (if you get my drift) that I keep an open mind on all of that LOL

      I hadn’t thought about hydration… and you are totally right about those weeks each month!

    We all have hard running weeks from time to time and I’m confident you’ll bounce right back. I had a full day of leisure today and it did feel dreamy. I should definitely do it more often. Thanks for linking, Vicki!

      Thankfully, the good weeks outnumber the hard weeks.

    I definitely have weeks, days actually, that seem harder than others, especially when it comes to running. I always look at it this way – for every hard run, the universe owes you 2 great runs! 🙂

    Great week of workouts. I did yoga today but then had pizza later tonight. I need to clean up my eating as well.

      I always feel better when I eat cleaner!

    I definitely have some weeks when running feels hard – usually it’s a sign to cut back. I’ve been slacking on my planking – need to get back to it!

      The cut back week usually mends it!
