Good Morning, Happy Monday, and happy back-to-normal for this girl.
Thanks so all the crazy weather back in Chicago and the Midwest, Zach and I didn’t make it home until pretty close to midnight last night. Needless to say we are EXHAUSTED this morning and will likely have a couple early-to-bed nights ahead of us after a long fun weekend and late Sunday night of travel.
While I would have LOVED to get a good sweat fest in this morning before work to start off my week, when my alarm went off I KNEW it wasn’t going to happen. Didn’t even hit snooze. Just reset for 715.
I skipped my normal rest day last Friday because I REALLY wanted to start the weekend of indulgence off on a good note, and I wanted to run my old home. So my body is a little more exhausted than normal. Then add the traveling and lack of sleep? Wasn’t going to happen for this lady this AM.
But, I brought my workout clothes with me here to work and am telling myself that I am going to fit in a good strength work out this afternoon.
After 6 days of running in a row, some strength training might feel good on these little muscles of mine.
Workout Plan For the Week
Since last week and last weekend were so weird, I didn’t exactly follow my last work out plan to a tee. And you know what, I was A-Ok with that. I never missed a day of sweatin’, and I actually got my butt OUTSIDE for 3 out of my 6 runs. Considering I ran in what was almost a tornado in the midwest yesterday, I am patting myself on the back.
But for this week, I am going to PLAN to have it a little run heavy to finish out the POTM and try and get as close to my initial goal of 1,000 miles for 2013 as I can.
- Monday: STRENGTH training (plan: 10 minutes treadmill, 100 push ups, 200 sit ups, 300 squats)
- Tuesday: 4 easy miles
- Wednesday: 4 speed miles
- Thursday: 4 easy miles + short strength training routine
- Friday: 2 miles shake out
- Saturday: 2 miles (hopeful) and skiing
- Sunday: 5-6 miles.
So that’s anywhere between 20 and 24 miles for the week, with two strength routines built in. I currently stand at 65.5 miles for POTM, leaving 35.5 miles left for the month.
Gotta keep up the pace but I think I can manage it 🙂
Alright guys 🙂 I’ll be back later this afternoon to start the recap posts of this weekend. I think my first one is going to have to be about my runs…because let’s be real. We all love chatting about new runs and work outs, right?
Question of the Morning: PLEASE tell me about your weekend, or just your life in general 🙂 I miss everyone and feel SO terribly out of the loop 😉
