Hey everyone! I hope you’ve all had a great week. I know for me, it completely flew by! I was excited to try and get back into a fitness groove this week. It didn’t quite work out as planned due to some unexpected schedule changes, but I still feel good about it. My IT Band has felt great all week and KT Tape Pro has officially become my new best friend.
Here’s what I did this week:
Monday: Rest – drove back to NY, worked, end ended up going out with a new friend
Tuesday: 2.5 miles
Wednesday: Spinning + Weights
Thursday: I planned to get out running, but it didn’t end up happening after I went to Martini Night on Wednesday 😛
Friday: 3.3 miles on the treadmill. Ran two miles at a 9:10 pace, and one progression mile in between. My leg felt really good. Also did 2000m on the concept2 rower, and some weights.
I’m headed to the gym to do at least 3 miles, hopefully 4 if there’s not a wait for the machines! So so tired. But to get miles in, I’m going to run to and from spinning tomorrow. Woo!
All in all, I’m really happy with this week. I feel like I’m on the upswing of my injury. I do feel like I lost a decent amount of fitness in the past 6 weeks which is disappointing, but it could be worse. I’ve gotten better at welcoming the gym into my life, especially since I’m not (mentally) ready to run out in the cold yet.
I plan to keep my plan about the same this week, with my normal Monday spinning class added back in. I don’t want to bump my mileage up too quickly, though, so I’m going to try and focus on not needing to walk, while increasing my speed to where I know I can be for just a few miles.
How was your training this week?
What was your best workout? Friday! I felt so strong on the weights, and ran the most that I have in a month.
