I have made it home! Wooooo. I am so excited; going home a whole day later was a bummer since I only have the weekend but I’m glad I was able to make it. The predicted Friday night snow was really worrying me that my flight was going to be cancelled ago and I would not have been able to make it home on Valentine’s Day to see my very special Valentine 🙂 It is the first Valentine’s Day we have been able to see each other since we’ve been dating. That is 1/3. Last year I was able to see my mom on Valentine’s Day when I was racing in Seattle, Washington. She was able to work a business trip around my race.
I am planning on enjoying my few days at home and then it is back to school on Monday with only two weeks until Conference/ Spring Break. Not too bad of a deal and three weeks until Shane will visit for his Spring Break.
So here is my past week of training. I finally took a day off (Saturday) of running. My first in awhile. I decided to for a couple of reasons- first that I will start to taper a little bit for the 5k at conference, second that there has been so much snow the roads are not ideal to run on and I am not a fan of the treadmill unless it is the alter g, and third I wanted to enjoy my time at home and Shane decided to cross train on Saturday as well after a hard Friday workout.
Sunday: 12.0 mi alter g run (76:00)
Monday: 10.6 mi alter g run (66:00), core work
Tuesday: 8.0 mi with a 4k tempo on the track (I already told y’all that one was a tough one!) tempo took 14:40 min (52:00), weight training
Wednesday: 7.5 mi (53:00), 30 min elliptical, weight training, core work
Thursday: 8.11 mi (55:00), 45 min elliptical
Friday: 10.0 mi (64:00), core work, weight training
Saturday: 75 min elliptical, some yoga on my own
Total Milage: 56.21 mi , 3 x cross training, 3 x core work, 3 x weight training
All in all another good week. The weather could have been better earlier in the week but I know I am much better off than many parts of the US right now so I’ll take what I got in New Orleans. I hope you have a good weekend! I know I will, I have lots planned before heading back to school.
