I got relieved early yesterday from hanging out with the kiddos. It was really nice to leave early knowing I had a 4-day weekend ahead of me. We would be in Sunriver for sure but for a fun wedding in town on Saturday (pictures to come)!
We “slept in” this morning. I think Jake got up at 6:45 and I did at 7:30 and I STILL didn’t want to get up. Jake is currently doing this:
while I write. Although we both have the day off slash Jake is “working from home”, I have some fun plans to meet Carolynne for coffee and my brother for brunch so Jake will be flying solo until the afternoon.
I have not worked out once this week, unless you count short walks around the neighborhood with the kids or carrying 35 pound children up and down stairs. My soreness was completely gone Monday from Hood2Coast but I hadn’t recovered from missing a night of sleep. This entire week I set my alarm early with the intention of working out only to be completely powerless against my lack of will to get up. After 2 days of this routine I thought maybe I should be intentional about missing these workouts to give my body a long rest which got me thinking about revamping my routine.
Hood2Coast reignited my love for running races and training distances, a goal I feared to set after being out of distance running for so long. My current fitness goals are the following:
- Keep my long run distances up, increasing from the 7 miles I ran last Friday.
- Strength train regularly (2-3 times per week).
- Do speed/hill/interval training twice a week.
- Incorporate a tempo run into my training schedule to maintain speed and add another longer run to my training.
- Workout 5-6 times per week for 1 hour.
