I took a week "off" to rest and regroup.
Billy ended up with a tummy bug, then he passed it to me. Another joy of motherhood!
I was pretty sore Monday and Tuesday, but by Wednesday I felt better. Thursday was full of work and travel, but Friday I hopped back on the treadmill and did a leg workout. It felt good to be back in the gym.
Saturday I was scheduled for a 6 mile "long" run. I didn't do it. I should have gotten up early and got it in, but I didn't. We went to a car show, visited with family, took a nap, and had dinner with friends. Saturday night the tummy bug attacked me. So, instead of getting my procrastinated run in Sunday morning, I puked and slept. I feel much better now.
I wonder if anyone else that runs gets to their race, feels awesome, finishes, and then puts their running shoes on the shelf for a while?
I did for almost a week, and now I can't. My next race is just four weeks away and I need a plan. That's what helped me stay on track and motivated last time.
So here's the plan for this next week.
Monday-6 mile make up run
Tuesday-lower body weight lifting
Wednesday-3 mile easy jog/ upper body weight lifting
Thursday-4 mile run
Friday-cross train (Jillian Michaels video most likely)
Saturday-8 mile long run
I hope you all have a great week!
