Weekly Workouts is really just the general theme for this post, because I really did very little working out this week because I’m one week after the Glass City Marathon. Even if you don’t get a chance to read it all (all the words!!), take a scroll through pictures. You’ll get the gist!
In case you missed it —> Glass City Marathon 2019 recap
I’ve spent the week, eating, drinking, and celebrating my 13th marathon! I also spent the first three days hobbling around on super sore calves! I’ve never had that happen. So odd!
Wednesday night I went out to dinner with my training partner to discuss our races too! Interestingly, her view of a fall marathon has changed and she is starting to check around and see what she might want to run 🙂
I also dusted off my spin bike and rode for 15 mins. This was just to prove to my husband that I still use it. haha!
By Friday I was excited to do something, so I went to the gym for some cardio (Arc trainer) and hit all of the weight machines. Even the squat rack!
Saturday morning I took a little run around my neighborhood and spent the rest of the afternoon quite a bit sore. Not sure if my hamstrings are sore from the marathon still, or from all of the weights I did at the gym. Either way, it wasn’t pleasant 🙁
Sunday = ran 5 miles, then spent the rest of the day doing yard work because it was almost 70 degrees! My hamstrings were feeling a bit better, but no joke, hours of yard work is harder on my body than running a marathon. So exhausting!!! 🙂
Finishing up with this post with a fun capture from the marathon finish line video. Right after I finished my friend Rich walked me through the chute. I immediately broke down sobbing, just because running a marathon is a very emotionally, and physically draining event for me! Nothing was wrong, I was just overwhelmed with excitement that I completed, and happiness that I was done! I got my composure back and gave him a hug. Then off to the celebration area with my husband and friends to enjoy a beer!!! (oh, and then I started sobbing again with my husband when I got to the celebration area because I “just wanted to sit down”. haha. The struggle is real!)
Q: Have you ever cried at the end of a race? Due to happiness/sadness/ or just exhaustion??
Q: Did you have Mexican food on Cinco de Mayo?
Nope, burgers for us to celebrate our day of yard work.
Q: Do you ever train a spin bike?
