While I did not stick to my plan exactly, I still got some good workouts in.
Saturday: It poured all day. T and I did the Insanity Fit Test. No comment there…
Sunday: Still pouring! T talked me in to doing the first Insanity workout. It was insane. I hated it, but loved the feeling of finishing it. (I did spend some time lying face down on the floor, especially when we had to do anything related to pushups).
Monday: SO sore from this weekend. It hurts to stand up. It hurts to do anything really. I forced myself to bring my gym clothes to work. Originally planned to go to the gym and do 1.75 miles on the treadmill, but it was such a nice day (after such an awful weekend) that I went for a run with my dad around the 1.5 mile loop by work (finished in about 17 minutes). In order to reach my mileage goal, I walked the last .25 miles on the treadmill at 3.8 and a 4.0 incline.
Tuesday: I decided to take a rest day and meet up with a friend for lunch. Great decision.
Wednesday: They were testing the fire alarms in my building at work so I decided to work from home. Around lunchtime I started to feel restless, so I took Molly out for a run to the end of my road and back. It was 1.5 miles of hills. AND I RAN THE WHOLE THING. That is a huge accomplishment for me. I don’t think I’ve run further than a mile without taking a walking break since my race in November. It was really hard going at first and I kept saying you can walk at that mailbox, you can walk once you get up the hill, you can walk once you get down the hill. But then I just kept going. Did 1.5 miles in 16:51 – getting a bit faster!
Thursday: Back on the treadmill after not seeing if for a while – I didn’t miss it. 2 miles in 23:51.
Friday: No workout for me today. I am off to an anthropology event at the University of Maryland this afternoon. I just got accepted to their Master’s program in Applied Anthropology. I start part-time next fall! So excited 🙂
Saturday: Yoga in the morning and hopefully a ride in the afternoon before a neighborhood party.
Sunday:Another run to the end of the road and back?? Maybe a ride – weather permitting.
Monday: 2.25 miles
Tuesday: Possible rest day?
Wednesday: 1.25 miles and core conditioning class
Thursday: 2 miles
Friday: 2.5 miles
7 weeks until race day!
