Monday: No running.
Tuesday: I was going to go running but picked up the wrong bag and therefore didn’t have running clothes with me . . . So I didn’t run. Fail. And I decided that it would probably be wise for me to keep backup workout stuff in my car.
Wednesday: This normally would be a rest day, but because I didn’t run the previous day, I went for a 4-mile run. It felt okay. Not the best.
Thursday: No running. Running on Wednesday throws me off.
Friday: No running because it was snowing and quite treacherous by the time I got home.
Saturday: 5 miles on the treadmill. I kind of made up a progression run, which worked decently. I started out slow and gradually increased the pace until I was going pretty hard (for me) at about mile 3.5, then I slowed a bit to a more comfortable pace. I need to incorporate more speedwork into my “training.”
Sunday: Official rest day.
Total for the week: 9 miles.
Man, I really need to start cross training again! And I need to add another day of running/actually go running when I’m planning to do it. Overall, though, it was a decent week of running. I got some good runs in amid the craziness/stress that is my job. I don’t see any relief from stress anytime soon, though, unfortunately, so I have to make time to get after it.
What do you do to relieve stress (besides running)?
