Weekly Training Recap

RECAP (7/20-7/26)

Monday – rest day  

Tuesday – 3 mile run & 90 minutes yoga on the beach

Wow was it hot today! The humidity was terrible, we got so warm during yoga on the beach that we ended up going down to the water and practicing with our feet in the water to stay cool!

Wednesday – 3 miles speed work (FTC)

Friday – 3 mile run (Marathon Sports Pub Run!) & taught 90 minute SUP Yoga

This was my biggest SUP Yoga class so far, a lovely group of mothers and daughters, the weather was amazing and we had a great time!

Saturday – 12 mile run

Today’s long run went MUCH better than last weekend!  My friend Pat was in town for the weekend so he & Jason accompanied me on my 12 mile run and then we spent the rest of the day at the beach and finished up with some GIANT Cape Cod lobster rolls and ice cream!

Weekend with Pat

I wanted to make sure to get my post-run recover in, but I didn’t want to miss out on beach time, so I brought my new Addaday roller with me and rolled right on the beach! 

Sunday – taught 90 minute Yoga on the Beach

Weekly Mileage –  21 miles 

2015 Mileage – 444 miles

**NOTE:  I’m going to go back to listing my “Next Week” workouts to try to help keep me accountable now that I’m back to training for something.  I’ve unfortunately been getting lazy and viewing my runs as more of a “suggestion” rather than an actual training plan!**

Next Week

Monday – 3 mile run

Tuesday – rest day

Wednesday – speed work (Falmouth Track Club)

Thursday – yoga

Friday – teach 1 hour aqua yoga

Saturday – 14 miles

Sunday – teach Yoga on the Beach

Overall

This week all of my runs actually felt pretty good, in fact, according to my watch my Friday night run may have actually been my fastest 5k!

I really need to get into the habit of foam rolling, stretching & icing more as my mileage begins to increase.

I’m also starting a new Physical Therapy aide job this week ,so I’ll have to adjust to balancing those hours with school, the yoga classes I teach and getting my runs ins – definitely going to be a busy few weeks until some of my summer/ outdoor yoga classes wind down for the summer!

How do keep up with post-run recovery?

What the most beneficial recovery for you? 

I think for me it’s icing my knew & foam rolling!

  1. I have a foam roller and lacrosse ball to tackle my muscles and knots after long runs. Sometimes the lacrosse ball hurts, but I need to get the knots out.

  2. Recovery is definitely my weak area. I am very good about stretching for at least a few minutes after every run, but rolling/icing/massage etc don’t happen as often as they should.
