Weekly Recap: November Week 5

 

Good morning! I hope everyone is having an awesome weekend. I know a lot of people raced yesterday or this morning and I hope you all did great! I will hopefully be racing next weekend, depending on what is found during my procedure Tuesday.

Other than that, I had a decent week of workouts and a really great eight mile run yesterday.

Yes I was wearing that running. In December. It was a humid 75 degrees, welcome to the south.

However, despite the heat, I was able to run really well, and finished up eight miles in 1:19. Considering all my health problems lately, I was very proud of that number.

Here is the rest of the week’s workouts:

Sunday: rest

Monday: rest/GI Doctor appointment

Tuesday: ran 3 miles, lifted upper body weights

Wednesday: lifted upper body weights

Thursday: ran 6 miles in one hour

Friday: lifted upper body weights, 30 minutes stationary bike

Saturday: 8 miles 1:19

Lifted weights X’s 3

ran 17 miles

cross trained one time

I have also been trying to do lots of stretching as I up my miles in my marathon training. The last thing I want is a cramp in the middle of running goofy in January!

Don’t forget to check out my Facebook page starting tomorrow for a week with ten giveaway’s on some friends’ blogs (and mine!)

QOTD: What is your favorite stretch?

Comments

  1. I NEED to start stretching more! After I run, I will literally sit in a butterfly stretch for as long as possible!

  2. How lucky to be still running in such warm temperatures!

    I love to s t r e t c h! Feels so good when my muscles are tired.

  3. Great weekly recap! My favorite stretch is any and ALL leg stretches. I love just sitting on the ground, legs straight… and relaxing and stretching out my tired old legs. :)

  4. It’s supposed to be 78 degrees here in AL tomorrow. Hopefully. :)
