Weekly Recap: June Week 4

Good morning! Sunday already wow. The weekend sure is flying by, but I did get in a good 6 mile run in an hour on Friday!

I saw lots of people racing this weekend thanks to Facebook and Twitter. Bobby did great in his duathlon yesterday and shaved 5 minutes off of his time from the last one a month ago. Yay Bobby!

We had a lazy day yesterday after the race, I even ended up taking a long nap, it was wonderful. Let’s take a look at my workouts for the week.

Sunday: rest

Monday: 5 mile run, upper body weights

Tuesday: 45 minute power walk

Wednesday: 2 miles speed work

Thursday: upper body weights, 45 minutes stationary bike

Friday: 6 mile long run

Saturday: rest

I got a massage for my IT band on Thursday as well as some active release from my chiropractor. It’s still sore, but hoping that in the long run it helps! I am so far behind in my training for Dumbo. This week calls for a lot more stretching and foam rolling, as well as a 7 mile run. I have a feeling it will be on the treadmill with the heat we have been having lately. Have a great day everyone!

QOTD: Would you rather have three wishes that had no catches or six wishes with minor catches?

Disclosure: I was provided with a wireless device and free service, all opinions are however my own

  1. I feel your pain I need to use my foam roller lots this week too on both my hip and ITB and I’ve just bought a spiky ball for releasing my hip too. Necessary but painful!

  2. Congrats to Bobby and nice work on your 6 mile run. Can’t wait for the Dumbo Challenge!

  3. Yay, Bobby!

    I’m so impressed that you do weights and running on the same day! It’s definitely one or the other for me :)

  4. Sounds like a great week! :)

  5. I’ve been reading your blog for a few weeks and have enjoyed it. I’ve run several halfs (mostly the St. Jude in Memphis) and signed up for the Glass Slipper Challenge for my disney race. You have great recaps!

    Where are the updates the past few days? You can’t be a daily blogger and fall behind girl! We miss you! :)

  7. Hi Heather. I was considering a duathlon. Could you let me know, did Bobby train for the biking portion or did he just kind of go out there and wing it? Wondering if I would be able to just count on my running training or if I will need some biking as well. Thank you!

    • He did train for it. :) this one was 11 hilly miles. I’m sure you could just wing it depending on what kind of time you wanted to get out of it.
