Monday: REST I was sick too so this worked out nicely. I called in and slept all day.
Tuesday: Planned – Track Workout; Actual – light walk. Called in sick again this day, but by the end of the day was able to get myself up for an easy walk.
Wednesday: Planned – Yoga + CX 30 min; Actual – Speed/track workout on treadmill + core. Did the workout I’d do at the track on the treadmill to make up for the day before. Didn’t go to yoga class because I had a Bible study, but I did a little in my living room.
Friday: Planned – 60 Min CX + core; Actual – REST I was exhausted this day and seeing as how I was sick earlier that week and still getting over all the sinus stuff, I decided to take another day. It works out though because Sunday is usually my rest day, but I have a 5K planned for that day, so by switching that rest day and Friday and bumping everything back a day it worked itself out.
Saturday: Planned – Yoga + 5 miles; Actual – Yoga and 60 min. CX I hopped on an elliptical for 60 minutes after yoga. I focused on staying completely in my endurance heart range but had a cross-training workout with changing incline so I worked different muscles and had to speed up/slow down based on the incline to keep my HR the same. I felt awesome, like I could stay there all day! Woohoo! I covered about 5 1/2 miles anyway, so it was like getting my long run in.
Sunday: Planned – REST; Actual – Run for the Roses 5K with a 1 mile warm-up My running coach would be upset with me because after this whole seminar on the importance of paying attention to your HR, I ran the 5K at top speed. I was running with a friend, which didn’t help, and I was excited! So I ended up in my top heart range for most of it. My time for my first 5K ever was 32:20 and my time this time around was 32:26, so not bad. This course was a lot hillier than the first race I ran! Anyway, I hurt all over and I have a headache. I’m supposed to run 5 miles tomorrow, but I don’t know that that will be happening. We’ll see. : ) Probably not the smartest race ever, but I’m glad I did it. It felt really good!
