Life was hectic last week. Between working, running and going to the gym, and a lot of family commitments I felt like I had no time to read or write a blog post.
I want to be optimistic about the upcoming week but I'm about to start some a 14-week course my company is paying for so my free time is going to continue to be limited.
However, there are two positive things to report:
1.) I finally got the carrot cake I was craving. I made it to take to a family dinner and I've had more than one piece each day this holiday weekend.
2.) I actually went for my long run today, finishing off my mileage building for this round of training. I fit in 18K and now have three weeks to taper before my next half-marathon.
Except I found a new place to chafe... My neck.
I know it's small but I swear it hurts!
I also iced my IT band with frozen corn while watching Wild.
My meals are prepped for the week and after the amount of dessert I consumed this weekend I'm going to try very hard to stick with it. Here's a look at my workout schedule for the week:
Monday: Legs - morning. Hot yoga - evening.
Tuesday: Speed training.
Wednesday: Arms and abs.
Thursday: Easy run, self-led yoga.
Friday: Full body.
Sunday: Taper begins! Long-run down to 13-14K.
How was your long weekend? What's motivating you to get moving this week?
