Hurray, it’s Friday! Anyone feeling a little sluggish today after celebrating National Wine Drinking Day yesterday? Can we just talk about how great of a holiday that is! Given my plans to go to Wine Fest twice this weekend, I didn’t plan to partake in the holiday but I did have an open bottle of wine with one glass left in it so I didn’t want that to go to waste!
My workouts this week went pretty good. I finished up Phase 2 of the Live Fit Trainer program and I’ll be sharing my results & review on that next week. My marathon training continues to amp up in mileage and, even more hills. I’ve noticed that I struggle to get my hill run completed on Wednesday because I usually do leg day on Tuesday and I feel pretty exhausted. That means I push my hills to Thursday and then run my long run the day after which isn’t ideal. So I’ve asked my advice from my coach on switching up my schedule so next week might look a little different.
Friday: Rest Day
Hallelujah, after missing my rest day last week, this was much needed and much deserved.
Saturday: 11 Mile Run
Somehow I managed to get this done despite my late night on Friday night. It was more like a slow slog of a run but I got the miles done which is what really matters.
Sunday: Rest Day
I was supposed to do a recovery run and shoulder workout but between ice fishing, driving back to Calgary and Valentines Day plans, I didn’t have time to get in a workout.
Monday: Chest Live Fit Trainer Workout & 3 Mile Run
Tuesday: Leg Live Fit Trainer Workout
Leg day is getting tough on this program. So many lunges! My booty is definitely feeling the burn during this workout.
Thursday: Back & Rear Delts Live Fit Trainer Workout & 5 Mile run with 4 hill repeats
I felt stronger on the hills this week than I did last week. They are definitely not my favourite thing to do but I know they will make me a stronger runner.
