Happy Sunday! I am currently cruising the Caribbean, but I didn’t have a bad workout week this week and wanted to share. I also wanted to remind everyone to be on the safe side if you are feeling an ache or pain. I was supposed to run 6 miles Thursday, but was having some knee pain, like I had twisted them…both. The only thing I can think is when I ran on the treadmill the day before, I tried new insoles in my shoes and maybe it changed my gait. Either way, I got up early and started my run, and less than two tenths in, I knew something wasn’t right and that i wasn’t going to be able to do this. So instead of being dumb and running anyway, I hit the gym and rode the bike and lifted weights.
Here is my week summarized:
Monday: 3 mile run, chest, tri’s, abs
Tuesday: back, bi’s, abs, and legs, also walked the dogs 15 minutes)
Wednesday: 3 miles speed work on the TM, chest tri’s and abs
Thursday: 30 minutes bike, back, bi’s, abs
Friday: rest/travel day
My running week wasn’t that great with the exclusion of my 6 mile run, but obviously my body was telling me to stop, and I am ok with that. I still had a good week of strength workouts (4 days) and some cross training.
On the cruise this week, my plan is to run 2-3 times, short easy runs, and lift weights 2-3 times. I do have a half marathon the day after we get back, so it is my taper week after all! have a great Sunday everyone.
QOTD: When your body says stop do you? Or do you push through anyway?
