Weekly Recap: January Week 3

 

What a week! Second half of our Disney trip, then coming home and trying to play catch up! Those first couple of workouts after a trip are so hard. Not only because you have been out of your routine for so long, but because you (well, at least we do) eat so much bad for you food, our bodies are rebelling and feeling very sluggish. We are feeling good one week post goofy (I can’t believe it was a week ago!) and I am ready to get back into a workout routine.

I am feeling pretty good about this past week, and want to incorporate more shorter/speedier runs into my schedule as well as some yoga. I am so happy that I have no more 15 or 18 mile long runs ahead of me, and I am excited about the runDisney Princess half marathon!

*Registration for the Disneyland half opens January 22nd, contact me if you need info! This one is going to fill up fast, I can feel it!

QOTD: What do you do for workouts after a big race?

Comments

  1. I rest a lot, but I’ve got a great yoga stretching DVD with two routines. Stretching never felt so good

  2. I’m definitely focusing on some yoga and maybe starting some running speed work as well the next few weeks – I’m planning on doing my first post Goofy run today : )

    I meant to ask you, it sounds like you didn’t have any of calf cramping issues during Goofy that you had experienced at a few races, that’s great if you didn’t!…I’m sure I’ll hear more in your recaps!

  3. Rest and stretch! That seems to be my go-to lately after long runs and races.

  4. Good that you didn’t try to do toooo much this week. Hope the legs are feeling good.

  5. You should link up with us today! Smart plan post goofy weekend girl! And SO EXCITED for Disneyland half weekend!!

  6. I would LOVE to do the Double Dare, but it’s soooo pricey!!! EEK!!

  7. The longest race I have ever run was only a half marathon and, afterwards, I spent a week or two getting in fast HIIT workouts, I worked on my strength training, and also did short little 1-2 mile runs.
