I took some time away from training after we got back from Scotland, but lately I’ve been getting back to it. I still did yoga and ran a bit here and there, but nothing was really structured. While I don’t have any big goal races on my calendar for this fall I still want to run strong and track my training.
I shared my race calendar at the beginning of the year and nothing has really changed since then. I will be running the Oregon Wine Country Half Marathon and runDisney Wine & Dine Half Marathon this fall.
This week was about variety and easing back into it. It’s been fun to focus on strength without having to worry about longer runs just yet.
Here’s the run down:
1 hour of easy spinning + 60 squats (standard & narrow) with 20 lb barbell
This run felt so good! I was so pleased that I felt challenged, but it didn’t feel impossible. My warm up was actually longer than this, but my watch was acting wacky. Intervals are magic. Even my “easier” paces were paces I haven’t seen in a while. I’ll take it!
2.25 miles of intervals + kettlebells, arm complex with hand weights & hula hooping
7 minute Yoga Boost – Yoga with Adriene
90 minute Solstice Yoga Class at Life Time Fitness – I had the opportunity to attend as an influencer and will be sharing more about the experience later this week.
Since I wasn’t able to celebrate Global Sports Bra Squad Day with a run earlier in the day, I went out to log a couple late night miles. I’ve been a Kelly Roberts fan for ages and love all the work she’s doing so there’s no way I was missing this. I got caught in the worst rain storm ever! Thankfully the Mr. was able to come pick me up about a half mile from home. 1.5 miles
Total Miles: 3.75
So that’s it. Not many miles, but a pretty solid first week back at it. Nothing crazy, just a week of workouts.
Per usual, I’m linking up with Courtney over at Eat Pray Run DC.
How was last week for you?
Are you training for any fall races?
