Wow, a whole week with no blog posts – it’s been awhile since I’ve let that happen!
This week felt extremely busy, but I was fortunate to have a 3 day weekend this weekend because of some scheduling changes, so I’m spending some time playing catch up and hopefully I’ll be back on track with blogging this week – you can expect my review of the Zensah Compression calf sleeves I got to try out through the BibRave Pro program and a new Yoga for Runners hamstring & IT band stretch!
Monday – rest day
Tuesday – rest day
Wednesday – 5 mile run
Thursday – 30 minute pool workout
Friday – 75 minutes yoga class & 5 mile run
My legs felt like lead this run, so I was thankful to have Jason to pull me along to get in those miles – I seriously contemplated cutting this run short a few times!
Saturday – 90 minute yoga class
Sunday – 10 mile run
Weekly Mileage – 20 miles
2015 Mileage – 187 miles
Running this week was ROUGH! My legs felt like I was wearing lead pants and moving one foot in front of the other on each of these runs was a serious effort! I’m glad I got them done though, my goal has been to start increasing my mileage to be ready for a spring half marathon and to try to get in 20 miles a week, it was a tough one but I got it done this week!
I’ve been really craving yoga recently and I’m glad that in addition to teaching I managed to get to 2 classes this week! I love that there seems to be a great yoga community here on Cape Cod (there’s a studio right near me that I really love!) and a lot of my running friends enjoy yoga too so it’s been great to have people to go with!
I’m hoping between some restorative yoga, compression and icing I can figure out what’s making my legs so tired and get them feeling a little better on runs next week!
I’ll leave you with a picture of Madison for today because, come on…how cute is she!
P.S. – she makes a “guest appearance” (aka couldn’t get her out of the picture!) in my Yoga for Runner’s post this week!
