Monday: I got to the gym around 4pm. I took one look at the track and immediately decided to abort that mission. Instead I got on the treadmill. I hate the treadmill and one of the only ways I can keep myself interested is to very the pace. A lot. Then I walked a mile to cool down and stretched for about 20 minutes.
Tuesday: I had a brief thought about running outside before deciding that would be miserable because of all the snow banks and glare ice. I had time for a four mile run and nice foam roll session before work.
Wednesday:I felt sort of like garbage and had a weird day with sleeping in and having a board meeting at 5:30pm. I wound up running a mile outside. Weather is much warmer (and calling 25* warm should tell you what kind of winter it's been), and we're clearly heading into a massive puddle season.
Thursday: I ran 'naked' today meaning without my phone or any kind of electronic device. I ran 1.5 miles on the track. I headed back to Body Pump. And then I Zumba'd. I hadn't been to Zumba in like two weeks and I was really happy to be back. Sine I have no pictures, enjoy one of my favorite songs for dancing:
Friday: I woke up at the crack of dawn and hit the track. I had quite the slow start which was fine with me and kept the whole run fairly slow and relaxed. Which was also fine with me. I had time for a nice 10-minute stretch afterwards. More would've been nice. Spending a lot of time in the car for the job now, I feel the constant need to make peace with my hip flexors.
Saturday I ran my mile on the track (sans electronics again) and then hit up a bonus second Body Pump class for the week, followed by Zumba.
I started out this week feeling really low, and was glad for the break. I'm looking at one more cycle of long runs and a break week before my first race of the season, the Trail Mix 25K in April.
