just looking at that photo is making me nostalgic for summer running!
Thurs, 11/26 (Thanksgiving!): 10K Troy Turkey Trot with the boyfriend. first race i’ve during which i’ve ever had stomach problems (worst feeling); otherwise it was great, and i love running with my man (who happens to be a naturally fantastic runner).
Fri, 11/27: hilly 9-miler — felt good for most of it, but my legs were pretty tired and sore by the end. i haven’t done those hills in a few weeks and they burned a bit!
Sat, 11/28: morning gym sesh with the boy at the gym near his house: i did several back machines (rows & laterals), biceps/shoulders with free weights, box jumps, squat jumps, jumping lunges (yep my legs were sore for like…oh wait they still are); 7 minutes of elbow planks. pretty good strength session and love working out with him.
Sun, 11/29: quick 3-miler before church. stomach was upset yet again. that needs to stahhhhhp.
Mon, 11/30: rest. that is the Monday usual as of late.
Tues, 12/1: 4 mile morning treadmill run (boo rain), followed by 50 decline bench crunches & 5 mins of elbow planks
Wed, 12/2 (today): 6-mile drizzly (but 50 degree!) run at 6am. i had my first “omg wait am i being safe??” NYC moment in a whiiiiile, as i generally think i’m always safe and nobody wants to kidnap or harm me…but it was 6am and i was exhausted and it was pitch black & drizzly and i suddenly thought about that girl who was attacked running at night on the East Side last week (and convinced myself that couldn’t happen on the West Side) as i was about to run my regular route along the piers…and i decided maybe running the piers wasn’t the best idea today. i chose to stay near the cars. & nobody stole me. phew.
and then i did 3 minutes of planks in the gym (because PLANKS, always).
total weekly mileage: 28. happy enough with that.
Best workout of your week?
Do you ever get nervous running in the dark? i rarely do, as i run in the dark often, but felt a bit uneasy at points this morning & stayed closer to civilization!
