Uh oh. I completely forgot to write my fitness recap this past week. Having a few extra days off from work seems to have screwed up my internal clock. But, alas, I am writing it now. We’re just going to get right down with the nitty gritty.
Saturday: Treadmill workout
Sunday: 3.1 mile run outside with an average pace of 9:54/mile. I was upset with this
number but I reminded myself that it was my first outdoor run in a seriously long time. I was running outside in preparation of the upcoming Turkey Trot and wanted to make sure I could consistently run the distance without stopping.
Monday: Unintentional rest day. I just could not drag myself out of bed.
Tuesday: Treadmill run
Wednesday: Rest day
Thursday: Turkey Trot 5k. I ended up running an 8:00 first mile (which is too fast for me and nothing I can sustain at this point) and then 2- 9:00 miles. The second and third mile were more consistent with where I feel I should be at this point in my running. I’ve slacked a lot after having my second child that I really didn’t anticipate running anything more than a 9:45/mile average. I was pleased with my first race. Winter is hitting Ohio, so I’m not sure how many more of these I will do before my half in April.
Friday: Rest day
The week overall wasn’t horrible on the fitness side. I was still able to get 4 workouts in before divulging in yummy carb loaded food. However, the holiday hit and I still have pie in my fridge. This coming week will be to get rid of the pie and workout 5 days. I need to start adding weight training back into my routine.
Did you run a Turkey Trot? Hopefully you remembered to take a picture, because I always forget. Until next time, be confident, be fit, be you!
