Last week the boys and I were sick. We are starting this week slightly better, but not much.
Monday: 5 miles, 4 min run/2 min walk
I missed my long run over the weekend due to baseball games and illnesses. My plan was 6 miles today but my knee and the toddler couldn’t take anymore. I stretched before and after the workout. I also foam rolled when I was done. Hoping I’m not in too much pain tomorrow.
Tuesday: Partner WOD
I met a friend at the gym and we completed:
- 500m row while other person did kettle bell swings (switch)
- 400m row while partner completed box jumps (switch)
- 300m row while partner completed wall balls (switch)
- 30 second weighted plank holds x 5, going up in weight by 5# each round
30 minute run – 4 minute run, 2 minute walk
I took the dog and toddler for this one and ended up returning to drop the dog off at the house. It wasn’t too bad though. No pain which was nice.
Thursday: 2 mile run – 5 minutes running, 1 minute walking
This run was really hard. I should have pushed it to Friday. I struggled through every step.
Sunday: 6 miles planned – only completed 4.75. 😦
4 minute run/2 minute walk
We went to the gym since I had both kids. Toddler wasn’t into it again. I hoped having the 6 year old would help with the toddler. It didn’t. He started crying at the beginning of mile 2. On the bright side, I had no knee pain!! Also, when I knew I was going to have to go, I did one final 4 minute run then increased my speed by 2 miles per hour for the final 1/4 mile. Both are big accomplishments for me and I’m very happy with my progress.
All my outdoor runs sent us to the beach and it was glorious! I love living so close to the water!!
