Weekly Workout Recap: January 2014 Week 1

First workout recap of January! I hope everyone had a great workout week kicking off the new year. I am tapering for Dopey, so I took it easy on the running front.

We are ready to see some characters!

At this point, nothing I do is going to make me faster, so it’s just about maintaining, keeping injuries at bay, and feeling confident. I took 3 rest days this week, Friday was unplanned, but I didn’t have a great day and working out was the last thing on my mind. Take a look:

Sunday: rest

Monday: 10 mile run

Tuesday: rest

Wednesday: 30 minutes elliptical

Thursday: 30 minutes stationary bike, weights

Friday: rest

Saturday: circuit workout at home 25 minutes

My plan for next week is to rest today, run 3 or 4 miles tomorrow, and that will be my last run until the 5k on Thursday. We leave Tuesday and are driving halfway down to Disney, and then arrive Wednesday morning to go to the expo. If you are going to the races, I hope to see you there!

QOTD: Do you run the week of a race/before the race?

Comments

  1. I am not running, but I will be along the course to cheer during the marathon. Good luck with Dopey!

  2. 10 mile run…sigh, I long for the day again:)

  3. I did 3 and 2 miles this past week and I’m done until Disney. I’ll count walking in the parks as cardio but will try to take it easy on Friday to prepare for the half, I’ll be in corral I. Good luck with Dopey!

  4. Enjoy yourself at Disney and have fun at the races! I look forward to reading your posts next week. :)

  5. I missed a day this week due to insanely sub-zero temperatures. I ordered a balaclava for my Princess training in Jan/Feb, so no more excuses once it gets here.

    I’ve got 6 miles today and a conditioning run on Tuesday before we drive to Buffalo for our flight on Wednesday.

    Maybe we’ll see you down there!

  6. So excited for you Heather! I am looking forward to reading your reports on each of the races. I know you are going to do great!

  7. I run a shakeout run a couple of days before but mostly crosstrain! Depends on the goals for that race

  8. Good luck doing Dopey next weekend!! I’m not running but will be volunteering at mile 12.9 during the Marathon so I’ll see you out there!!

  9. Elizabeth Gentry says:

    Heather, are you doing the Princess Half this year?

  10. Good luck to the both of you on the races! Safe travels as well!
