Workouts – Last Week Today – March 5

fontover_201671013354641-1.jpgThis week was a week was a definite cut back week for me.  I ran twice this week, made it to yoga class, and started on my plank-a-day for the month of March.

This is how my week ended up:

Sunday – Rest day.  Spend most of the day in my PJs. Totally needed a pajama day!

Monday – 3 easy miles with the Gooses Acre Running Club. They seemed a little hard, I’m blaming it on the humidity and the fact that I over dressed.

Tuesday – Yin yoga class.  I was so happy to be back at this class.  I think it is really helping my running… from keeping my hips happy to the mental aspect.

Wednesday – Rest.  1:00 plank.

Thursday – 3 miles on the trails.  I found some trails near the house and ran on them.  It was a beautiful afternoon (hello cold front) and I saw a deer and the beginning of a beautiful sunset! 1:00 plank.

 

Friday – Rest. I had been going back and forth between running and rest.  Rest won out as I was woken at 1am with the dogs… one of them had diarrhea Thursday morning, and the same one or the other one had it this morning (evidently I’m the only one that can clean up this type of mess).  Put the dogs on a fast for the rest of the day and came home to make them a special dinner (white rice/cottage cheese/boiled chicken), as I write this they are doing better! I forgot to plank 🙁

Saturday – Rest.  I thought I might run a few miles after spectating & volunteering at The Woodlands Marathon, but when I got home, I took a nap then headed out to meet-up for the KU Alumni watch party for the final KU game of the regular season. 1:00 plank.

Total Miles = 6

    Ugh! Diarrhea is the worst (and I hear you on being the only one that apparently can clean it up). We had a “run” of loose stool last week through EVERYONE, but thankfully not real diarrhea. The weird thing is they all eat different foods!

    HEEL Diarrhea Tabs. Seriously, I might not have kept Bandit without them. Just sayin’.

    And definitely love my yoga!

    Oh, no. Doggie diarrhea is the worst. I hope they feel better. You’ve been very busy with running and racing and deserve a cutback week. A PJ day sounds wonderful. I can’t remember the last time I did that. Thanks for linking, Vicki!

    I hate when our furbabies are sick. I am glad to hear that they are doing better! I need to get back to my planking too! Why is this such a hard habit to keep up with?

      This month I printed out a calendar to hang in my bathroom to mark off each day that I plank… it is helping!
