A couple of things before getting to my workouts from the week:
I am on my third pair of Yurbuds. Why are they always breaking?!
I contacted Yurbuds and they did replace two pairs for me but now my most current pair, which lasted maybe a month, stopped working in one ear during Thursday’s 9 mile run. Anyone else have this issue?
So I normally do my long run on Saturdays but when I can’t, typically I bump it up to Friday rather than wait another day until Sunday.
This week however, I chose to wait until today instead of Friday morning for a few reasons:
- I didn’t have enough time Friday morning.
- Sunday (as in today) made more sense because my legs would benefit from the rest after Thursday’s 9 mile run.
- I was holding out for my new pair of Energy Boosts to arrive in the mail…and they came yesterday afternoon!
You really shouldn’t run long in a new pair of shoes BUT I am making the exception today because this might be my 10th pair of Energy Boosts so I like to think my feet know what to do with them.
Also, the first nine pairs I have worn didn’t need much breaking in, unlike many other running shoes I have worn in the past.
Monday – Pure Barre Studio Series DVD & 30 Minutes Elliptical/Jump Rope
I brought my jump rope with me to the gym and broke up my elliptical time a little like this:
- warm-up jumps
- 15 minutes elliptical (random setting with incline ranging from 3-15)
- 100 jumps (it’s much harder than it sounds)
- 15 minutes elliptical (random setting again with incline ranging from 10-15)
- 100 jumps
Tuesday – 8 Really Hard Miles
I talked about this not so fun run, along with 3 things all runners need to remember, in Friday’s post.
Never again will I try to wear running shoes that are past their prime!
Wednesday – Pure Barre Pure Results (65 minutes) & 3 Easy Miles
I have found that I need to walk or run a few miles after this Pure Barre Pure Results workout because my legs need the extra stretching out and movement to prevent the soreness from all of the lifting, toning, and burning.
Thursday – 9 Miles <- awesome run!
After Tuesday’s not so great run, I need this today.
The only problem was that MapMyRun was off on tracking distance. It kept telling me I was at a mile when I think it was more like the 3/4 mile marks.
From the overall time and my idea of distance, I am pretty sure I averaged an overall pace of 8:25.
Friday – Pure Barre Mile High DVD & 3 Recovery Miles
Saturday – Kickboxing
I don’t get to tag along for kickboxing too often but when I do, it’s a good time.
Sunday- Long Run
I am so confused to be running long today but I am eager to get out there. We will discuss my run tomorrow!
