Weekly Recap: April Week 3

 

Good morning from Disney World! I am here at the Grand Floridian for the next three days! (Remember, I am a travel agent and can book your Disney vacation for you…at no extra cost to you!) Today we are hitting up Hollywood Studios and having a fabulous nice dinner at California Grill at the Contemporary. Yum!

Because I ran a half marathon last Sunday, this week’s workouts were definitely lax. I wanted to be sure to recover well since I ended up being injured and since it was so hot! I can happily report my hip is no longer bothering me. I have only run once since the race though..so not sure what to think of it. Anyway, here we go!

Sunday: Half marathon number 12

Monday: rest and ice

Tuesday: upper body weights, abs

Wednesday: yoga, 10 minutes elliptical

Thursday: ran 2.5 miles of intervals at race pace, upper body weights

Friday: 15 minutes elliptical, upper body weights and abs

Saturday: rest/travel day

TOTALS:

miles run: 15.5

yoga: 1, one hour class

cross training: X’s 2

weights: X’s 3

For the week after a race….I’ll take it. Not my finest week but at least I wasn’t sitting on the couch doing nothing, right?

Comments

  1. Def more cross training, stretching and resting! Congrats
    On half #12!

  2. @michelejacoby says:

    Enjoy a well-deserved vaca!!

  3. Looks like a great post-race week to me!

  4. Taking it easy the week after a race looks like a good idea to me! You accomplished a lot. Good for you =)

  5. Nice post-race week! I definitely believe in taking it a little easier post race. BTW – congrats on #12…off to read your race report :)

  6. Run with a friend in the spring, or head out to the trails or near the water. Places you might have avoided during the cold winter. Its a great change and pick-me-up after a winter of running.

  7. Pretty awesome that you get to rest at Disney after your race (I’m uber jealous). Looks like you had a good week of workouts, too!

  8. get jealous every time you post disney! lol
    on good note, least my daughter got to go to downtown disney for a concert at house of blues last night…
    enjoy and one of these days you’ll be booking mine/hers cruise and stay at Grand Floridian!
