Running recap: basebuilding, continued

sleep

Y’all, I apologize in advance for this super brief training recap. Saying that I need sleep is the biggest understatement of the day. Coffee will literally be my best friend today…

PS I’m linking up with HoHo Runs and MissSippiPiddling today. Happy Monday!

Running, March 27-April 2

Monday, March 27: 3.1 miles, 9:29 pace. On the treadmill and I felt surprisingly good. Earlier in the afternoon I suffered through a challenging meeting so it was nice to just completely zone out.

Tuesday, March 28: 3 miles, 10 pace. Also on the treadmill because apparently this was the week of treadmill runs. Theme of today: tired/over it. My hip felt pinchy/awkward but thankfully some good deep stretching and pigeon pose ironed that out.

Wednesday, March 29: 4 miles, 9:34 pace. You guessed it…on the treadmill

Thursday, March 30: Yoga, glorious yoga. Stretching + much needed zen

Friday, March 31: 3.7 miles OUTSIDE, 9:54 pace. I was exhausted by this point in the week but it was nice to be out in the beautiful weather and fresh air.

Saturday, April 1: Rest. Freaking. Day.

Sunday, April 2: 3.2 mile super duper easy run after brunch, 11:00 pace. I felt like a busted biscuit can in my tights thanks to a delicious brunch but it was so nice to run with friends

Total mileage: 17 miles

Notes: Last week was HARD. Work was hard, I felt like I wasn’t sleeping well, and I was putting pressure on myself to run the same amount, even though I knew I was going out of town over the weekend. 

Yoga classes: 1

Goals for the week: Reset. Let myself be “lazy”, put less pressure on myself to run like a crazy person during the week, and just try to relax. With ideally some longer weekend runs.

Here’s to a better week!
