So I have realized that I’m doing a horrible job at recording and sharing my weekly workouts with you guys, so I’m going to start posting them here on Sundays. Dumbo Double Dare training is in full swing!
Monday – rest
Tuesday – rest
Wednesday – 1.5 miles
Thursday – rest
Friday – rest
Saturday – 2 mile run + 1 mile walk with Guinness
Sunday – 7 mile run
I realize that there are WAY too many rest days in there…I really need to add some cross training to my routine. I don’t have a gym membership so I need to find things to do on my own. Very open to any suggestions!
My workouts that I did do went okay. I originally had planned on 3 miles for Wednesday, but something didn’t feel right in my left hamstring/ankle area, so I cut it short. Saturday and Sunday it was fine, so I think it had to do with not stretching it out well enough before my run.
Saturday I did 2 miles around the neighborhood and then decided to take Guinness for a quick walk. Still trying to get him used to the Gentle Leader collar so he can eventually become my running buddy.
Today’s run went well. I’m not the biggest fan of peanut butter, but I know it’s a good fuel to eat before a run, so I had a slice of bread with PB and headed out for my run in my new SLS Compression socks (review coming soon!)
I waited a little too late into the morning as it got pretty humid. It sprinkled rain a couple of times but never anything heavy or long (which just made the humidity worse). The run was going good…up until this happened -
I totally forgot to charge my Garmin and the battery died. It happened right after mile 4 but I knew I would get my 7 miles in since I had already passed the halfway mark. I chatted with a lady who was walking her dog about running and then went off on my way. I’m not entirely sure how long it took me, but I know it was longer than I would have liked. But..I finished!
Love my Sweaty Band! It stayed put throughout the whole run and didn’t move an inch!
This week I think I’ll break out the new Brooks and test them out. :)
Hope everyone had a great weekend…it’s back to the grind tomorrow!
What are your favorite cross training exercises? Any you would recommend to do at home?
Until next time,
