It’s Sunday! That means it’s time for my weekly training update! There’s not much to update you on this week, because for the first time since last year, I took a rest week! After my race on Sunday, I took a full week of R and R for both physical and mental rest! It has been very much needed! Now I’m itching to go for a swim, bike, or run!!! I may head out for a trail run with a friend of mine this afternoon. Here’s what last week looked like:
Sunday: 70.3 World Championships!! ‘Nuff said
Monday: We drove back from Canada ALLLLLL day! Took us 14 hours. Yea, it was a long day! We literally emptied our car and dropped into bed the second we got home.
Tuesday: We both had to go back to work. We each had long, busy days, but when we got home, we went for about a 1 mile walk to stretch our legs a little.
Wednesday: Another busy day at work! John and I did another 1 mile walk in the evening, and then I did my T25 Stretch video. I was feeling stiff, so it was needed!
Thursday: A local running group in our town was doing a 9/11 Memorial Run/Walk 5k, so we joined them! John wanted to walk it, so I just stayed with him and enjoyed myself. It was really cool walking with other people carrying flags! We walked down busy streets and cars would honk at us every few seconds in approval. Pretty cool.
Friday: SUPER busy day at work for me…..I was glad I didn’t have the added stress of having to work out. We didn’t do anything even mildly active this day.
Saturday: One of the perks of not having a long run and swim on a Saturday–you can go out to breakfast with your hubs!
We had a nice relaxing meal, then ran errands and headed home to clean the house. In the evening, we went for a lovely walk.
So that was my week! Pretty light on the workout side!! I’m ready to ease back into some workouts now, and prepare myself for some “off season” training.
What do your rest weeks look like after a race?
