Last week was my last week to prep for the ultra relay (Spokane to Sandpoint) I am participating in this weekend. I think I had a pretty good week, even though I bonked on Thursday and took an unexpected rest day. Typically I would have taken the rest day on Friday or over the weekend, but there was no way I was going to be able to work out and make it beneficial for myself. I left work (in my workout clothes), got a large peanut butter milkshake (GASP) and then went home and vegged on the couch for the rest of the day. I was in bed before 8:30!
Most of the miles I logged were during the week because I knew that the weekend would be busy. On Saturday we had a wedding and a birthday party and on Sunday we went boating at the lake. I am glad that I was occupied all weekend, because I was a little bummed that I decided not to run the SeaWheeze half marathon on Saturday. It just wasn't meant to be this year- too many things going on. I need to learn how to say "no" to every summer running related activity.
Enjoying the lake on a sunny Sunday
Miles ran: 40.32
Miles cycled: 0 (that made me sad!)
Farmgirlfit classes: 3
PR’d by 5#s in the clean & jerk- I am now up to 95#s!
Ran a 5:52 timed mile after a super tough workout in 90 + degrees
Did 80 walking lunges with a 25# plate over my head- that was a hard one!
This week will be very low key. I only plan on running a couple of miles on both Monday and Wednesday. I also only plan on two Farmgirlfit classes to ensure that my legs feel ready to run on Friday. I am starting to get really excited for this relay!!!
When is the last time you said “screw it” and grabbed a milkshake on the way home from work?
Do you have a difficult time saying "no" to running events?
Walking lunges with weight- love it or hate it?
