It’s been a few weeks, but I’m finally getting into a good routine. And just in time too. I have three weeks until half marathon training starts!
Monday: 3 Miles
Tuesday: 3 Miles + Abs & Hips
Wednesday: 1 Hour Yoga
Saturday: 4 Miles
Sunday: 6 Miles + Abs & Hips
Total: 16 Miles
Monday was a nice wake up call. It was the first day all weekend I didn’t have a migraine and I was running in some heavy heat and humidity. I ended up running on the trail, surrounded by Cicadas and finished up in the development. I kept it easy, but I still felt out of shape.I met up with Mallory on Tuesday and we ran 3 miles on Roscoe and in the connecting neighborhood. It felt pretty miserable, mostly from the heat. Eventually I’ll get used to the new temps.
Wednesday I took my first yoga class in a long time. I bought a Groupon for Zen Yoga and took advantage of the 10 class pass. I felt stiff, but I felt much more relaxed after class. I’ll definitely be attending at least once a week and hopefully plan to keep it up after my Groupon runs out.
Saturday’s run wasn’t until the middle of the afternoon. I met up with Mallory and we headed to Buckeye Woods. We had a small rain shower, which was welcome after the past week of heat. It was still humid, but much cooler than it has been. We stuck with just four miles due to a time constraint, but it was exactly what I needed.
Sunday I met up with the Running2bWell group at Hinckley. We did two lake loops and kept it a relatively easy pace. The weather, despite still being a bit humid, was perfect. Rain and 60’s are my favorite! This was also the longest run I’ve done since January.Overall it was a really good week. I’m finally back into a good routine and I can start adding on more mileage. As long as I stay aware of my mileage and make sure to incorporate cross training, I hope to be injury free and get back to my old running self.
