This week has been so weird. This is my long week, where I work 9 days in a row at the hospital. It’s only 8 hour shifts, so I cannot complain, and I get 4 days off at the end, which I LOVE! I live for 4 days weekends!! Anyone else feel like this?….anyone?
Anyways, this time around I was a little bit jaded. I am pretty sure it was just the time of year, the weather, the fact that I have not seen the sun in 4 months, and the fact that EVERYONE is sick around me at work…. I got a little crazy this time around. I am not sure the hubs likes me anymore.
Luckily, I thought ahead and rearranged my training plan a little so that I could get all my workouts in and still not want to kill myself. I am proud to say that I did all the prescribed workouts, just not quite in the right order. I am not sure why, but I am super sore today. I am so glad I have a massage scheduled today. Now I just need to run this morning, an easy 2 miler, and I will be all set to go.
So, without further ado, here is the week (a little late, who’s counting?) in workouts…
2/16: Sunday-5 miles in 61:35 plus 1 extra mile with Scott and Sara. My 5K (plus a little extra, darn GPS) was 37:57 for the Sweet Cheeks Virtual 5K
Monday- Strength x 20 minutes, 3.5 mile run on treadmill, then 30 minutes stretching
Tuesday- Started my first day of 9 day stretch, took a rest day
Weds- Treadmill hills x 20 minutes
Thursday- Treadmill x 2 miles, then strength x 20 minutes
Saturday- long run on White Pine Trail after work, 5 miles. Trail was VERY uneven from all the ice storms and it had about 4 inches of snow on top. It was a very good calf workout 🙂
