This was not the best training week for me. I was overwhelmed by first birthday party preparations so unfortunately my workouts suffered. Just need to pick myself back up and get back at it as we only have 4 short weeks to go till race day!
Monday 18th: 5K run with the family
Tuesday 19th: 5K tempo run with my running group. Finally made it to a clinic night!
Wednesday 20th: 4K on the treadmill
Thursday 21st: 30 Day Shred Level 2
Friday 22nd: I almost skipped my 30 Day Shred workout since I was busy baking away. I managed to find the time, however Audrey was awake and she quite entertained by my huffing and puffing! Every time I would do a plank move she would crawl under me which made it a bit difficult to actually complete the move! Every time I did abs she would crawl on top of me and start patting my tummy! I kind of felt like I had my own personal Jillian Michaels pushing me through the workout!
Also my new shoes arrived! I ordered another pair of Asics Kayanos since my previous ones are done and I don't want to wear the Mizuno Elixor Waves for my long runs.
|Love the note that came with my shoes!|
Saturday 23rd: I didn't do a workout this day as I was again busy prepping for the birthday party. Unless you include 10 pin bowling with my running group as a workout? I did have a sore glute the next day so I think I pulled something trying to do some fancy bowling moves!
Sunday 24th: I missed my 14K long run and didn't make it up. The morning was spent cleaning, decorating and getting ready for the birthday party. After the party I did not have the energy to lace up my shoes.
There is no way I can miss my next 3 long runs before the race!
It was a challenging week but I am committed to getting all my runs in between now and the race. I am not letting anything else get in the way.
