It’s a good thing I type down my workout recaps each day as they happen otherwise I would be sitting here staring at a blank computer screen with nothing to say.
Do you know that I just scrolled down to see I had a treadmill run earlier this week and it took me a minute to remember?!
The funny thing is, while our minds may be busy in other places enjoying birthdays (more on my birthday tomorrow!) our bodies do not forget the miles we have run.
In fact, by the time I got to yesterday, my typical long run day, I was too disinterested to participate. I may not have recalled the 30 total miles I had already run this week (with the bulk of them at the end of the week), but my body did and wanted no part in logging any more.
I skipped yesterday’s long run in favor of stopping to smell the roses.
They are actually referred to as rainbow roses. Aren’t they pretty? 🙂
Anyway, let’s take a quick look at my workouts from the week!
Pure Barre Studio Series DVD & 45 Minutes Elliptical – I figured I would skip running today instead of Wednesday since Wednesday is National Running Day and I didn’t want to feel left out of the celebration.
8 Treadmill Miles – It was rainy and cold outside so I opted for the treadmill which was not a bad thing. Not a bad thing at all!
It was an awesome run! I went as slow as 6.8 and as fast as 8.6
I don’t know my exact splits or time, all I can say is that I got faster and faster as I went, running the last mile in 7:18.
I really don’t hate the treadmill. I just have to remind myself of this because my brain tends to forget.
Pure Barre Mile High Series DVD & 4 Easy Miles – Just a few miles in honor of the holiday.
8 Miles – I was a little tired (went to bed a little later than usual) so my pace wasn’t as fast overall as the last time I implemented my new favorite running workout but it was still a great run!
I am so happy by the way that so many of you are enjoying this running workout which I randomly put together.
It really is a good time and a great run so I intend to make it a part of my weekly routine as often as possible. If you try it out or have any questions, be sure to let me know!
10 Birthday Miles – Friday is usually a low mileage/cross-train/rest day but I like to run 10 miles on my birthday (I don’t know why but it’s the tradition I started a few years ago).
I came home and worked from my bed for a bit with my favorite birthday mug and Pro Compression socks.
30 Minutes Elliptical – I wonder if the people on my running path were looking for me! I just wasn’t up for a run this morning.
Nothing was sore and I wasn’t even tired but I didn’t feel like running mentally which I knew meant I needed the day off from my running shoes.
Pure Barre Mile High DVD or a few miles – I didn’t decide yet.
