Monday on the Run #34

Happy Monday!



Monday – REST
Tuesday – 5K
Thursday – 5K
Friday – 5K
Saturday – REST
Sunday – 6K

Remember how last week I was practically at GoodLife Fitness everyday because I fell in love with spinning? Well my coach told me to cut out all my doubles because I was going to burn out! My mileage has been low so I had a lot of energy to burn off but I would definitely burn out if I had kept going but would have tried to work through it (and this folks, is why I have a coach). So this week, I’ve been listening and following my plan.

Monday was a rest day. Tuesday I got an easy 5K.


Wednesday was crosstraining and core. For the month of November, GoodLife Fitness has a special where you can try one month free so I got my partner to come work out with me!

Yes, we have matching shoes haha! I convinced him to spin with me for a bit before he left me to go do weights. I was on the spin bike for 50 minutes then did some squats in the squat rack and some light core work.

Thursday was slightly crazy. We had a lost wallet panic on our hands so my run was delayed while we tore the house apart looking for a wallet. After retracing all our steps and going out to look around – we had to call the bank to cancel the cards…. only to have found it in a pair of old sweatpants. I wish I was joking! So after all of that, I got to go out and hit my backyard trails and do another easy 5K.


The weather was crazy warm – people were in shorts and tank tops which is definitely not regular November weather! Then later in the evening, I met up with Vicky and we went to a Vega event. We learned about post recovery nutrition and got some great Vega swag!

Friday I did another 5K with pick ups at 10K pace and then I ended off the week with an easy 6K in the trails again.

  1. Great training week! I love the pictures taken from below while you’re running. Was that using a timer or did you have a photographer lying on the ground? 🙂

  2. Unless I’m in serious race training mode, I never work out too much. I’m too lazy for that. ;o) Ugh on losing the wallet. I’m constantly looking for random credit cards I’ve left laying around the house.
