This past week was a lighter week for me on the workout side of things. I had run the Hokie Half on Sunday, and I had the Virginia 10 Miler coming up six days later, on Saturday. So I kept things pretty easy during the week.
Monday – Rest. It was the day after the half marathon. My back and legs were a bit sore, but not awful.
Tuesday – Cross training. Just some light core work, a circuit of sit ups, push ups, and a plank x 3.
Wednesday – Rest. I had planned to do a short, easy run but worked late and was really tired when I got home.
Thursday – Easy 3 miles in the evening after work. It was a really nice evening outside, and I enjoyed the weather. The weatherman was calling for rain all weekend, and actually said after sunset on Thursday we wouldn’t see the sun again until Tuesday morning. So I made sure to enjoy it.
Friday – Rest.
Saturday – Virginia 10 Miler. It was cold and rainy, but I had a good race! I even got to run the whole thing with my friend, Jessie. Full recap coming soon.
Sunday – Cross training. Just some light core work – sit up, pushups, planks, etc. again. I had thought about doing another short, easy run or some light yoga. But my right Achilles tendon was sore and a bit swollen after the race, so I took it easy.
How was your week last week?
