Monday on the Run #10

It’s Monday! Can you believe that?! School is now back in session and I’m sad that I can no longer sleep in.

MONDAY ON THE RUN


 

Monday – massage
Tuesday – Rest
Wednesday –  11k
Thursday – Rest
Friday – Rest
Saturday – Rest
Sunday – 11.6k easy

Well last week didn’t go as expected.  I got a massage on Monday because my legs weren’t feeling too well. Wednesday I had my first training run of the season did 3 x 1k intervals and clocked 5:31, 5:13, 5:05.  Woohoo!  I didn’t get home until super late on Friday and had to work an early shift the next day so I took some time off thinking I could do it Saturday.  Of course that didn’t happen because what started out as a beautiful day turned out into a full on storm causing the sidewalks to pretty much freeze over!  Which brings me to Sundayyyy! Luckily the weather was great on Sunday and I was able to get out but to avoid the puddles/ice/slush, I went to a local track and tried not to go crazy as I ran on their track haha.  Unfortunately, my ITB started acting up so I cut it short and did 11.6k

I mentioned on Instagram that it is so easy for us to compare ourselves to other runners.  On IG, I see all my friends running 18k+ on Sundays and it really bummed me out because I miss doing such long runs but I had to listen to my body.  When it says to stop, I stop.

Hope you guys have an amazing week! Hopefully this week my runs will all go my way! 🙂

PS hope you guys saw my post yesterday!  Hoping to do my circuit at least twice this week!

  1. Kudos to you for listening to your body! It’s all to easy to get caught up in the comparison game on IG and twitter these days. I have a quote on my pinterest when I find myself comparing that’s something like “don’t compare your beginning to someone else’s middle” 🙂

  2. I miss sleeping in too! Yes kudos for listening to your body. You only have one so you might as well listen and treat it right 🙂 Have a great week of training!
