Week 9 was a bit of a mix and a challenge to get my workouts in. Cory had to travel for work mid-week so I was on my own with Cannon and the pups. I also agreed to teach a class for a coworker in the evening and we had an ice storm that made running outside impossible. All in all, I am happy with what I was able to get in given the obstacles. As always I am hoping to do better this week!
As usual, I am linking up with Jessie at The Right Fits and Jess Runs ATL to recap last weeks training.
Monday: Quick 2 mile shake out to get rid of the stiffness from last Sunday’s 16 mile run
Tuesday: Jumped on the treadmill for 5 miles with intervals.
Wednesday: Normally I get out early for a mid-week longish run before Cory leaves for work, but he was on travel for work so I decided to try to get out for a mid-day run with Cannon. It was a beautiful day and normally Cannon does fine in the stroller but on this particular day he was not having it. We made it .75 miles from home when he started to complain so we turned around. Any Mamas out there have tips on how you got your little one to love the jogging stroller?
I was at least able to get in a strength training session during a short nap time.
Friday: I wasn’t able to get out until late in the evening, I actually love running in the dark with my headlamp. 4 miles on trails felt amazing.
Saturday: Up and out with the sun to get 6 miles in before the day got going. It was 12 degrees and I didn’t see any other runners.
Sunday: I had an 18 mile run on the schedule and I didn’t want to be away from Cannon for too long so I decided to run loops around our house. About half way through the run I stopped back home to nurse Cannon. When I got back out on the run my legs were stiff and it took a few miles to get back into the groove. All worth it to see my little man. Any other moms out there doing loops so they can feed their little ones?
Running: 43.7 miles
Strength: 1 session…sigh
Great week and thanks for linking up with Jess and me 🙂
I can imagine it must be hard to stop to nurse and then get going again- even just stopping sometimes for a Gatorade break can make the legs stiffen up. But you gotta do what you gotta go!
I’m struggling to fit in strength too. Just not enough time in the day 🙁
