Workout Recap & Plan May 28–June 2

Well I had a solid first full week back since vacation. I really enjoyed getting back into my routine, though I am not fully in the swing of things yet I am getting there. I find after vacation for a few weeks you just feel behind on life in general. Hopefully I will tackle my “to-do” list this weekend and get straightened away.


So last week I ran 12 solid miles. They were good back to running miles. I rent for a 2 mile run Monday followed by body pump and then subsequently was in pain until Friday. But it was just the hurts so good kind of pain not injury pain – which I will take any day of the week! Smile I went for a 4 mile shakeout run on Tuesday which was needed to get the blood flowing.

Wednesday I rested and Thursday I ran another 3 miles. My muscles by that point were on the mend from body pump so that was good. Friday I rested again and Saturday I did an interval run for a total of 3.2 miles. I had three intervals spot on under an 8 min/mile and 2 were off.


I1: 8:25
I2: 7:36
I3: 7:46
I4: 9:28
I5: 7:59


Overall great week, low but good miles, lots of rest and lots of foam rolling! I even got strength training in, look at me! Winking smile  Here is this week’s plan already in progress. I am happy to report no pain from Body Pump yesterday so time to up my weights again!

It’s going to be a big week! Saturday is my first 2-a-day run! Smile I am excited! My first race is in a little over 7 weeks so I officially have my game face on for that. I may sneak a small race in there before hand though if time and training allow. Anyways I better get to bed as that 40 minute run is happening in the AM tomorrow!
