Monday: 10 miles in 1:38
This run was supposed to have taken place on Sunday but I moved it to Monday since I wasn’t feeling well and wanted to rest before I worked the second job on Sunday afternoon/night. I left my house around 5:30 p.m., after a particularly stressful day at work.
It was a beautiful evening for a run and cool enough that I didn’t need to bring any water along. Plus, I knew there would be fountains at mile 2, 3.5, 6.5 and 8 on the route I was planning to run. Mandy joined me for about four of the miles — it was nice to have some company!
I went for my weekly acupuncture session and so far, I think it’s been really helpful! No migraines since I’ve started my treatments!
Wednesday: One hour personal training session
We focused on arms and abs and then did a lot of stretching and Pilates to get my legs/hips ready for Ragnar!
Another extremely stressful day at work (there may have been some tears) and then Ragnar packing after work. I was in bed by 10 since I knew the alarm going off at 3 a.m. was going to be paaaaaainful.
Friday: Ragnar (race recap to come soon!)
Leg 1: 6.6 miles
Leg 2: 3.5 miles
Leg 3: 5.4 miles
We had a pretty relaxing day. I slept 12 hours and we went to my in-laws to pick up my dog. They fed us lunch and then the hubs and I went out for dinner.
This week is going to be weird again because I’m making a last minute trip to Atlanta on Tuesday and don’t get back until midnight on Thursday. I’m bringing running stuff to ATL but the weather forecast looks kind of crappy, so we’ll see how much running I actually get done. I have a busy weekend waiting for me when I get back, but I’m making it a priority to fit in runs, including a 16 miler on Saturday!
