I made time to workout, and since I run so early, I knew that running would not interfere with my prepping and planning this week. It actually helped. I came home from my runs with energy and focus to tackle my daily tasks. I went to the gym 3 times, and my workouts were short and I made them count.
Monday: Spin class
Tuesday: 5AM-Ran 4 miles.
Wednesday: Legs, shoulders- supersets. Abs.
Thursday: 5AM-3.5 miles. Later: Chest, shoulders, bi's, tri's- circuits. Abs.
Friday: Cleaned for 6 hours. That was a workout.
Saturday: Long run- 8 miles.
I took it easy this week with running. Actually I've been taking it really easy with my pace and distances. I am being very conservative with my base building. My piriformis muscle has been a little tender, so I didn't start speed work like I intended. Maybe next week. I will play it by ear.
I was only going to run 6.5 miles with my running group on Saturday, but felt surprisingly good after they stopped. (Hello runners high.) I kept running and called it an even 8 miles. It was muggy and overcast, but still a good run. I wasn't dreading every step of the last mile.
