I have to admit that my running has been a bit sporadic lately. Not because of injury, but mostly because of a crazy schedule. Without actually training for anything, my motivation isn’t always there. But I’m also not stressing if I’m not running a ton of miles. Here’s a look at the past week.
Sunday: 3 Miles + Abs, Hips & Arms
Tuesday: 4 Miles + Abs, Arms & Hips
Saturday: Crescent Moon 5k
Total: 10.1 Miles
Sunday was my first run in a week, I felt a little out of shape, but not horrible. I took it easy on the treadmill while everyone else was battling whether up in Cleveland. I think this was the only year I wasn’t jealous that I wasn’t running.
Tuesday was almost a run I could have gone without. Mallory and I met up at Lester and just weren’t feeling the run. We did a walk/jog for 4 miles. Between her leg cramps and my cramps, it just wasn’t our day.
I had planned to run on Wednesday, but I had a borderline migraine so I knew I was out for the night. Again, since I’m not in training, it’s ok to skip a workout or two.
Saturday I ran the Crescent Moon 5k. I ran with my sister in law Nicole, and we took it as a fun run. A recap will be up later this week.
Overall it wasn’t a horrible week, but I know I need to start adding in some speed work and increasing my mileage.
The biggest thing I dealt with this week was a time change in my schedule. I started a new job, so now I’m getting to work an hour earlier, so some exhaustion is definitely slowing me down. The plus side is that I get home an hour earlier, so now I feel pretty spoiled getting home before 5:30. It will take a few weeks to get used to, but it’s going to make a world of a difference for my overall health and happiness.
