This weekend started off very similar to last weekend. We went to another Capitals pre-season game because tickets were dirt cheap. I’m feeling spoiled.
The next morning I had to get up early for the TRX training class. It was an 8 hour class full of great information and lots of working out. It was so exhausting and i’m sore in places I haven’t been in a while. I can’t wait to get to work this week and test out my new knowledge of the TRX course in the gym. The instructor showed me a few exercises to stretch out my chest, and workout my back because runners tend to have their shoulders pulled forward (I do for sure).
Even though my body was sore I went on an early morning hike. (okay, it was noon, but on a Sunday it feels early).
Take a look at a few pictures from the hike…
My weekly workout summary:
Monday: 8 min leg workout
Tuesday: 5.5 mile run 8:27/pace, 10 min abs + foam rolling
Wednesday: 6 mile easy run 8:26/pace
Thursday: 15 min Triceps, 15 min abs
Saturday: Full Body TRX (2+ hours)
Sunday: 4 mile hike
Total Miles: 11.5 + 4 mile hike
My mileage was a little low for my liking this week, but my legs were wrecked from this week’s workouts and it’s always hard for me to get back into running 4-5 days a week after a race . RIght now football is on the tv, I just had a cup of hot chocolate, and after a weekend of cross training I’ll be ready to run tomorrow.
Did everyone have a cup of coffee today? It’s National Coffee Day!
