It is here! I can’t believe that it is the week of the Walt Disney World Marathon already! This time next week, I will be hobbling around with post-marathon legs.
Last year was not the year I wanted it to be. I wouldn’t say that I slacked off with my healthy habits, workouts and personal life in general. I would say that work became an overwhelming presence in my life and everything else suffered. I know that I won’t run the marathon that I was hoping for because I simply didn’t train as hard as I should have. I do know that I will do whatever it takes to cross that finish line on Sunday!
My Workouts (Week of Dec. 31st, 2012):
My workouts last week did not go according to my original plan. I was hoping to get in 2 short runs during the week and one last long-ish run on Sunday morning. I had a really big deadline pop up that needed to be taken care of immediately so I was only able to run once last week.
- Monday, 12/31/12 – Rest
- Tuesday, 1/1/13 – Easy Run
- 3.01 miles, 36:33 minutes, 12:10 min/mile avg. pace
- Wednesday, 1/2/13 – Rest
- Thursday, 1/3/13 – Rest
- Friday, 1/4/13 – Rest
- Saturday, 1/5/13 – Rest
- Sunday, 1/6/13 – Yoga
- Relax Flow – 33 minutes (Tara Stiles’ This Is Yoga DVD)
On New Year’s Day, I laced up my running shoes and went for a run to celebrate the start of a brand new year. I practiced my run/walk intervals I am planning to use on Sunday. I am trying to avoid any surprises on Race Day, besides running 26.2 miles of course.
Yesterday, I had every intention of going out for my 8 mile run but my stomach had other ideas for how I should spend my day. Rather than fight with my body (I will be doing enough of that next weekend), I popped in a new yoga DVD from the This is Yoga DVD Library by Tara Stiles. I haven’t practiced yoga in MONTHS and I could absolutely tell that today. I was SO glad I chose the Relax Flow workout because it was a perfect way for me to reintroduce yoga into my life. I really need to get back into a regular yoga practice again.
How did your workouts go last week?
