Weekly Recap: January Week 1

 

It’s here! It’s here! The week of Disney;s marathon weekend is finally here! Fun news to share, Bobby, with his quick as lightning email and refresh-hitting abilities was able to get into the special meet up taking place on Friday morning at Hollywood Studios. How exciting, I can’t wait to share it with him. I have felt bad going in the past without him but am stoked he gets to participate this time.

So, let’s take a look at last weeks workouts and see how I did. I will tell you I have been battling severe hip and hamstring tightness and have been ordered by my chiropractor to stretch, stretch, and then stretch some more. I figure at this point I can only make matters worse by running, so no more running for me until the race!

Sunday: rest

Monday: 1.5 mile walk with my parents

Tuesday: Gym closed New Years

Wednesday: back and bi’s, 30 minutes stationary bike

Thursday: 10 mile treadmill run

Friday: 20 minutes stationary bike, chest and tri’s

Saturday: rest

What I wore on our walk SO comfy, thanks runningskirts.com!

The ten on the treadmill weren’t as bad as I thought. Of course I cheated and watched Gilmore Girls which made the time go by a lot faster. I do wish I could have gotten in my 21 mile run, but I didn’t last time I ran a full and I survived. So, while not ideal, hopefully my body will cooperate! Can’t wait to see some friends and have some fun!

QOTD: When you feel an injury coming on do you listen to your body and rest?

  1. Congrats on a great week and good luck with your run!
    I am re-lauching a weekly link up on my blog called “This week in workouts” I would love for you to stop by and link up your blog!
    Cheers, Tara :)

  2. I LOVE Gilmore Girls! My Mom and I used to watch all the time. Best show ever!! :) You will do awesome next weekend – looking forward to seeing you and Bobby at the meet up.

  3. Yes absolutely, REST! I know we are both scared out of our minds for this race but we will be ok!! It’s all going to be fine!
    Love me some Gilmore Girls!! :0)

  4. Rest! Especially since the weather is calling for a warm, dry weekend at Disney. I wouldn’t take any risks. The last thing I wanted was to run another WARM race, but I guess that’s what I should expect living in Florida.

    Safe travels this week!

  5. Absolutely! I learned my lesson(s).

    You will do awesome! Excited for you :)
