Things that are Dopey Challenge Training Week 7
Monday: 3 miles were on the schedule and so I ran 3 miles. Not too bad, and I felt pretty good. I just need to remember to use my foam roller after each run. I haven’t been doing that, and have noticed a difference in how my runs feel.
Tuesday: I had Barre, as well as squats and lunges on the schedule. Because of other church responsibilities, I ended up not having time to go to Barre or strength training. So it turned into being a rest day for me.
Wednesday: 1 mile was on the schedule, and I ended up running an 8:32 mile. Woo woo for me! 😉 That was my fastest mile to date.
Thursday: 6 miles were on the schedule and I ended up running 5.12 miles with Chase. He wanted to eat all the food on Thanksgiving, so he ran with me.
Friday: Rest Day
Saturday: 14 miles were on the schedule and I ended up running 12.11 miles. I woke up to snow, and it was not a pretty sight for me. To be honest, I was worried about falling and slipping on the snow. I have never been running in/on the snow, so I was very very nervous. I know I live in Utah, and I haven’t run on the snow?! I realized during/after my run, that I haven’t been taking good care of my body. I started getting the same pain that I got when I injured myself last year, and after the past few weeks I have just felt tired and worn down.
After my long run I immediately foam rolled, and then I did my squats and reverse lunge sets.
Sunday: Rest Day! Much needed cause I am sore from yesterdays run/workout.
Total Miles for the Week: 21.41 miles
