My official race time yesterday was 27:56, I am beyond happy with that time!! : ) Plans for this week are as follows:

Planned              
               
Type Monday Tuesday Wednesday Thursday Friday Saturday  Sunday
Run (Minutes) Rest 30 min 35 min 20 min 20 min 34 min  Rest

Other              
               

 

So I should probably mention at this point that I am slightly concerned with a pain I have had since after the race yesterday that I have been hoping would go away … and it hasn’t. So now I’m nervous I may be actually injured and should have cross trained more. I have another 5K in a few weeks and a possible longer distance race in November so I am hoping this is just soreness but I’ve scared myself into getting back into cross-training.

 

Monday Mantra: There is More then Running

So last week I focused on finding the motivation to do Body Pump and yoga (aka get into a gym), and I did. I would have done a second Body Pump but didn’t want to risk soreness before the race. This week I plan to continue that but also get back in the pool and I may even get on a bike if we have a nice day, I know how important cross-training is so I better get to it if I want to remain injury-free. Also, cross your fingers for my quad. If it keeps up the plan this week may change.
