Another winter-y week of running, yoga and rest completed. We had a snow storm last Friday and currently having one at the moment. This winter is by far more manageable than last year’s SNOW BOMB after SNOW BOMB.
Building My Base Week #3
What was Planned vs. What Really Happened
Monday Feb 1st: Yoga or Rest Day | Rest Day. My legs were tired from Sunday’s 10k and I had a sick little one on my hands.
Tuesday: Yoga | Yoga & 5k Treadmill run. Yoga was great as was my run.
Wednesday: Run/DVD Workout | Rest Day
Thursday: Run | 8k Run Outside. I ran at 6pm with my running buddy, Krystol. We had a fantastic run. Easy pace, talked the whole time we ran and knocked out 8k without paying attention to our Garmin’s. Perfect run except I didn’t stretch enough afterwards and my hamstring was sore on Friday.
Friday: Rest Day | Rest Day + 30 push ups (part of a monthly challenge).
Saturday: Run | Nothing. Shoveled snow/snowblowed the driveway. Spent the day with my girls.
Sunday: Run | Treadmill 5k Didn’t love it but was happy I did it.
Though my week was a little more “rest days” my body needed it. Hilary was sick early in the week which messed with our sleep. Honestly, I had very little sleep last week and unfortunately my husband was away. So those “rest days” were actually me feeling 110% exhausted. I’m okay with the way my week went down.
Week #4 has started off with a bang in a killer yoga class yesterday. The first 5 minutes, okay probably 8-10 minutes was ALL abs. Not easy ab work, SUPER hard ab work. I hurt today. It’s all good.
How was your weekend?
How often do you feel completely exhausted? Tired is different than exhausted.
