Sorry for not posting my training for the past two weeks I was a little preoccupied with our new house!! Yep, we bought a home and I couldn’t be happier 🙂 I honestly never thought I’d own a home…it’s so surreal.
Weeks 2 and 3 were pretty much nonexistent as far as training goes. If you’ve ever moved you know that it’s exhausting and a workout on its own!!
Week 2 recap:
Monday – Grumpy & tired haha. Didn’t run although I should have cause it would’ve made me feel better.
Tuesday (2.5 miles @ easy pace) – Duration Drill on the treadmill (Women’s Running Mag). Kept my pace the same the whole time and increased the time spent running followed by a fast walk. Example: 1 min @ 5.0, 1 min @4.0, 2 min @ 5.0, 2 min @ 4.0, and so on.
Wednesday – Did our final walkthrough on our house after work. Too excited to go to the gym (excuses, excuses) 🙂
Thursday – Celebrated signing our closing docs with a yummy steak dinner and drinks.
Friday, Saturday, Sunday – Moved into our new house!!! Got in plenty of steps and a great upper body workout haha. No gym required.
Week 3 recap:
Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday – If I wasn’t at work I was working on the house. A new home is A LOT of work!!
Thursday – Thanksgiving! Drove to CA to spend the day with family
Friday – Spent the day with friends in CA
Saturday – Drove home from CA
Sunday – House, House, House…alllll day. Signed up for a new gym membership knowing that I needed to jump back into the swing of things Monday.
I definitely could have made time for more running but I don’t feel bad or guilty about it. Spending this time getting our home together was important to me.
Week 4 recap:
Monday – up at 5AM and off to the gym! Was able to get in 2 miles @ 12’10/mile average. Not the best but better than nothing.
Tuesday – Strength train at home in the morning
Wednesday – Went to the gym after work with Mike and ran 2.94 miles @ 11’40/mile average pace.
Thursday – Rest day
Friday – 2.5 miles @ 11’19/mile pace at the gym in the morning
Saturday – 5.83 miles @ 11’55/mile pace. Ended the day with 20,000+ steps!
Sunday – Active Recovery. I’ll go for a nice long walk today 🙂
