Happy Tuesday!! I hope your week is starting out great. I was hoping to have fabulous running things to tell you about in my “non-training” recap for the week, but it’s been a bit lackluster. In just a few weeks this will turn into my official Training Tuesday recap for the Owens Corning Half Marathon at Glass City on April 23rd. Until then, it’s my pre-training week in review!
- Training for: *nothing yet!*
- Days of running: 3
- Miles run: 14.3
- Gym visits: 3
3 miles around my neighborhood. Just a typical run when I’ve got nothing planned. Also went to SkyZone this day. That’s some fun cross training! I was definitely feeling it the next day. Ouch. My stiff neck!!
Gym day today. I decided to do random exercises for core and glutes. This is probably where I overdid it and when my tailbone really started hurting because I did some of those Russian Twists for my core work. NOT the best idea on a sore tailbone Totally funny thing happened at the gym… I was trying to take a sneaky pic of my arm for the post, and a lady walked into the locker room. Instead of us both just pretending nothing happened, she offered to take my picture!! I couldn’t say no to the offer because that would be rude, although I just wanted to slink away from embarrassment! Awkward! [embarrassing!!! which is why I’m sharing it. haha!]
5 miles on the treadmill in the early AM. I’m catching up on lots of DVR shows!
Tailbone feeling quite sore now by the end of the day. Sitting around at work is not a fun thing! No running today!
Skipped my traditional long run today. Went to the gym and did the stair machine instead. That felt OK. Decided to run slowly around the gym track. Went totally insane because my Garmin did not work properly. It reported that I only ran .87 miles in 20 mins. Given that my average pace is usually around 9 mins outside, I find this mileage HIGHLY unlikely. And just look at my Garmin map. Uh huh. Calling this 2.25 miles instead.
Still feeling sore tailbone. No running or anything today!
4.06 miles Donut Dash race!! The running between donut stops seemed a bit hard, but I think it was all because I didn’t have a way to gauge how fast I was running (no watches allowed). I ran with Alan which makes me run faster, and it was a race, so I was probably running too fast! Not that fact that I am out of shape already and my belly was full of donuts!!
So as you see, it wasn’t quite the 25-30 mile week I had originally planned for. I hope these weekly recaps get better!! I still have a couple more weeks until my training starts for the Owens Corning Half Marathon at Glass City starts. You can find my other Training Tuesday recaps here! I’m trying something new and linking up with Courtney at Eat Pray Run DC. (there are a lot of fun blogs linked there in case you are looking for something new to read!)
Q: Have you been putting more miles on your treadmill this week?
Q: Ever tried running on an indoor track with a Garmin? Did it work for you??
Q: What TV shows are you really into lately?
I’m starting to watch the New Celebrity Apprentice. I like that show, but seeing Arnold on it is just odd!
