Woah…I am tired!
I woke up this morning close to my usual time (because I do not know how to sleep late) and even though I am tired, I am still riding some sort of endorphin high produced by a combination of yesterday’s long run and last night’s Islanders game.
Or maybe I am just on a sugar high from the mega ice cream sundae we technically inhaled only a few hours ago.
Epic dessert for an epic day which we will discuss a bit more tomorrow!
For this week’s workout recap, which features lots of awesome runs (!!), I made it a point to take note (actually, take a picture) of the sneakers I wore each day just so you would have an idea how my running shoe rotation goes down.
I currently rotate three pairs of running shoes and it is extremely rare that I wear the same pair two days in a row.
Read more about the importance of rotating your running shoes here.
Pure Barre Studio Series & 5 Miles – A while back I referred to myself as plank pathetic.
I am still no planking champion but I have noticed that I can lift and lower each leg while in the plank position much better than when I first started this Pure Barre series back in December. Progress!
5 easy miles in my Hoka Cliftons.
The Hokas usually come out for easy runs/recovery runs but can be worn for really any run which is why I love having them as an option.
9 Miles – I wore my newest, brightest, bluest pair of Energy Boosts just because I needed a little extra love this morning.
I was dealing with that overall time of the month not-so-sparkly feeling and wanted my run to go as well as possible so new shoes were a must.
And they matched too!
I don’t like to push my pace much during this time of the month but my legs felt really fresh and ready to roll so I actually still averaged 8:55 overall.
Pure Barre Mile High & 6 Easy-Paced Miles – I had been saving these Pro Compression socks for what, I don’t know, so I randomly decided to brighten the gloomy misty morning by wearing them for an easy morning run along with my veteran pair of Energy Boosts.
I threw off my shoe rotation by wearing the newer Boosts on Tuesday but it all worked out just fine because I can wear my Hokas for fast runs and feel great, almost forgetting they aren’t my main pair/first choice in running shoes.
Miles 1 – 3 @ 8:50 <- warm up
Miles 3 – 6 @ 8:14 <- unmeasured speed intervals throughout the miles
Miles 6 – 8 @ 8:35 <- slight cool down
4 Easy Miles & Pure Barre Studio Series – I normally do Pure Barre before running but this time I ran first and then came home to lift, tone and burn.
I went with my older pair of Boosts for this short run because I decided they are really reaching their end which means they are no longer allowed to run with me for long runs on Saturdays.
Are you following the thought process on the shoe rotation or have I lost you completely?!
15 Miles – You know you are having an awesome run when you hear yourself singing along with your playlist.
I think I listened to Fall Out Boy’s The Phoenix a bazillion times during this run- my favorite running song at the moment!
Miles 1- 10 @ 8:30 pace with mile 1 @ 8:44 and mile 10 @ 8:14
Miles 10- 13 @ 8:35
Mile 13-15 cool down
Rest day/morning walk with my son. At least that was the plan last night, he’s still asleep…
