And I’m rested and ready to pick back up on my training. I rested this weekend and enjoyed relaxing with my husband.
I have a fun half marathon coming up on Halloween and need to get back into a regular routine. I also need to start getting used to trail running again. My plan for the week is a little bit of everything…
- Monday – PM run (5 miles) and then lift
- Tuesday – AM run (4 miles), PM swim and lift
- Wednesday – AM run (5 miles), PM swim and lift
- Thursday – AM run (4 miles), PM swim and lift
- Friday – REST
- Saturday – swim and lift
- Sunday – Medium length trail run (9 or 10 miles), leisurely afternoon swim
I can always skip the swimming if I feel like I’m doing too much. I play it by ear. But I really love being in the pool. So I try to go as long as I feel up to it.
I have to say, I had a little bit of marathon envy today. I regularly post on a health and fitness forum and many members were running marathons today (10-10-10 is a popular race date, just like weddings). I spent the day enjoying the beautiful weather, resting, and cleaning – but a part of me was wishing I was out there doing another 26.2. I had to keep reminding myself that I’ll have another one soon enough!
It really is addicting though. I know there’s a winter one around here somewhere, but I’m not sure when that is. I’ll find it though!
I hope you had a fantastic weekend!
