April 5k by the 5th & Weekly Workouts

It wasn’t the best week of workouts but certainly not the worst week either! This nasty head cold stuck with me all week and I still have it. (Not to mention both girls do…somehow my husband has dodge the cold so far). Last week went like this:

Monday: No main workout. PT exercises. Foam rolled.

Tuesday: 5k run (3k on the treadmill and 2k outside!). Foam rolled

march 31st run

Wednesday: No main workout. PT exercises. Foam rolled

Thursday: 6 km on the treadmill, foam rolled, PT exercises. It was a really good run and I wanted to do more but it was getting late at night.

Friday: No main workout but did some PT exercises (lots of squats lately)

Saturday: Ran 5k on the Treadmill – was okay but my lungs weren’t loving it…still have a head cold. This was my 5k by the 5th run. {5k in 33:37 or so} Last month I ran it in 34:56 so I guess I am getting a little faster so that’s positive!


When April 1st hit, I knew I had to run 5k at some point but totally forgot (even with the email reminder) until I was half way through my run. I figured it was now or never so I picked up the pace for the last 2.5km and managed an okay time. I sure hope I can do the full 5k in May OUTSIDE!Β Β And, 5 by the 5th hosted by Laura at Mommy Run Fast.

Sunday: No workout as I was run off my feet with the girls and helping with Easter Dinner at my parents house.


In the end, last week I managed 16k which I’m pretty happy with since we’ve all been sick. It’s been a long time since I’ve really looked at my weekly mileage. No main reason why, but I just haven’t bothered to focus on that (yet). I do still keep track of my monthly mileage in my trusty old book πŸ˜‰

How was your week of workouts?

Anyone run on the weekend or did you sit back and enjoy the weekend?

Do you keep track of your weekly mileage, monthly mileage or both?

  1. That sstill sounds like a pretty good week to me! BUmmer about the head cold (I feel ya 😦 ) I kinda track my mileage…I plug in my garmin and it tracks with garmin connect πŸ™‚

    • It wasn’t too bad….i’m happy with it πŸ™‚ You’ve been so sick these last few months – it’s hard to do anything when we are sick. I haven’t been able to run outside so my poor Garmin hasn’t had much use lately 😦 Hoping to change that!

  2. Good for you for getting in your 5 by the 5th run. It is a lot harder when you are out of the groove, for sure. Get over that cold, soon! πŸ™‚

  3. You’re getting stronger and stronger all the time! I’m sorry you guys have all been sick, but it sounds like you had a great week regardless. I ran yesterday and then I did as little as possible for the rest of the day and it was glorious. πŸ™‚

  4. I’ve had a cold also… No fun! I always track my mileage. That’s one of the reasons I wanted to start my blog. Progress is my biggest motivator so if I see I am improving my pace by just a few seconds it makes me want to work that much harder!
