|A nice and easy week.|
Monday was a recovery (and spring training) day, Tuesday was a travel day, and Wednesday was about getting back to work and buying and prepping groceries. I finally got on the treadmill Thursday for a few miles to shake the cobwebs out, and did a decent amount of weight lifting and running over the weekend.
Run: Twice, both on the treadmill, for 8 miles in 1 hour, 20 minutes. I kept both runs at a 10:00 minute-per-mile pace just to get back into the swing of things. I really wanted to get outside Sunday but my schedule ended up getting weird, so I finished season 3 of Orange is the New Black instead.
Weights: Once, my heavy-body weight routine, for about 1 hour, 20 minutes. Yes, I lifted weights as much as I ran this week.
I am still feeling this now two days later. Although I kept up with barre and weights videos until the week before my race, I haven’t lifted heavy since I got into the race almost two months ago now. Every single pull-up and squat muscle is extremely mad at me. I didn’t realize I had been neglecting them so much.
Bike: Once, on the trainer, for 30 minutes to warm up for my weights workout. I’m pretty sure that was the first time I’ve been on the bike this year.
Total: Four sessions in 3 hours, 10 minutes. Not great, obviously, but considering I was out of pocket for three days, I’ll take it.
I’m pretty tired today so it's been a quiet evening of yoga and some glute exercises, but I hope to really get back into it tomorrow, if I'm recovered from my weights workout by then!
