This past week the weather was up and down and weird. But I still got my miles in! :) I ran twice with Karen and let me just say that having her there for my long was SUPER helpful! As much as I love winter, the sneak preview of spring that we got recently is making me hope the groundhog's prediction comes true!
We are moving this Saturday so things have been busy and a bit stressful. There is still a decent amount of work left to do but I know it will work out fine. I'm just feeling so ready to move! :)
I've been feeling pretty decent overall but sore and tired off and on too. I feel like it takes me a while to recovery from the long runs. My schedule makes things a bit difficult too because I do most of my runs between Wednesday and Saturday. So this week I have a couple of goals:
1. Get at least 7 hours of sleep each night! Listen folks this is TOUGH for me. I've never been good at sleeping more than 6-7 hours and i usually can't do it for days in a row.
2. STRETCH!!!!!! I used to be SOOOO good at this and then I got busy and felt ok and stopped. I'm trying to get back to stretching at least after every run and spin if not every day!
My coach switched out my XT for a 20 minute recovery run the day after my long run. This means that I will run 4 days in a row this week. Hopefully this helps out! :)
Here's what I got in this week:
