Its been a while but I’m back for another Monday on the Run. I can’t believe it’s almost race season so here’s how my train has been so far!
Monday – ARMS
Tuesday – 8K EASY + ARMS
Wednesday – 5K
Thursday – 8K
Friday – CROSSTRAINING + LEGS
Saturday – ABS + ROLLING
Needing some motivation to stop skipping runs, I signed up for the half marathon distance for Run Ajax.
I ran 16K on Sunday so Monday was definitely run free for me so I hit the gym and worked on figuring out what my arm routine would be. I think I have it down but there’s still a lot of work that needs to be put into my routine.
Tuesday I was back to running. I did 8K in the morning before heading into work and then back to the gym afterwards to work on my arms again.

Wednesday I was supposed to do 2K warm up, 6 minutes at 5:35 pace, and 2K cool down. Instead my legs went a little crazy and went out at 5:09. Oops!
Thursday I headed back out for an easy 8K. Near the end of the 8K, my shins were a little iffy. So when Friday rolled around, my leg was telling me no when I tried to head out for a run. Instead, after work, I went to gym to cycle and worked on legs/glutes.
After my shins not being happy on Friday’s attempted run, I spent Saturday resting all morning before spending a quick 30 minutes on core work before foam rolling out knots.
Then I woke up on Sunday with what I assume to be a throat infection and oh my goodness, my throat was on fire. My 10K run was pretty difficult as I had trouble breathing because inhaling and swallowing hurt but I pushed through and got to enjoy some trails. On the bright side, my throat being in pain meant that I could indulge on ice cream! Got myself a Caramel Rolo container of ice cream and dug in!
So how was your week? Anything you’re training for?
