Weekly Workouts: February 16, 2015

Workout_02.16.15

Is it really Friday afternoon? Normally, I am so much better at posting my weekly workouts at the beginning of the week but this week has been brutal. Work has been killer and I haven’t really wanted to do much of anything when I got home. Last weekend, I survived another runDisney race weekend. Honestly, I almost threw in the towel before the 10k even got started but that is a whole other story that I will save for that race recap. Speaking of race recaps, I am SOOOO behind on those and I should have the rest of my recaps from Marathon Weekend done by the end of next week. (Fingers crossed!)

Besides running in another crazy race challenge, I had a pretty good week. My body continued to cooperate and allowed me to get in a few runs and even some core work. Plus, I was able to fit in a strength training session at the gym. Pretty impressive and pretty dumb at the same time. When will I learn that doing any sort of leg work during the week of a big race is not exactly the smartest thing in the world?
