yesterday, i woke up in the Sunshine State. today, i woke up to 25 degrees in NYC. funny how a day (and some airplanes) can change things so drastically.
Thurs, 1/14: 6 miles on the treadmill. leg felt pretty good, esp after running 5 the morning before. still don’t love the treadmill, but i don’t love freezing temps + wind at 5:45am either, so i caved.
Fri, 1/15: rest. aka travel day! oh hey, Florida. you’re pretty. i think i might have done some push-ups at my parents’ house that evening?
Sat, 1/16: 8.5 mile run in sunny Melbourne Beach, Florida. this felt great. i love running in a new place, especially when that place happens to be beautiful.
Sun, 1/17: tried to run but the legs were really hurting. i managed to jog about 3 of the 5 miles and threw a couple sets of push-ups and lunges into the mix, finishing with 5 minutes of planks at home.
Mon, 1/18: jogged 1.5 miles to the local gym and bought a day pass, did an hour + of a hard full-body workout with alllll the legs (which i’ve been paying for since!), finished up with 15 minutes of abs and then walked the 1.5 miles back home. felt great about this workout and was pleasantly surprised with the gym in this little town.
Tues, 1/19: walked 3 miles to get coffee in the morning. SO SORE from yesterday’s full-body session.
Wed, 1/20: 3.5 miles on the treadmill. i was thisclose to staying in bed, but i managed to drag myself out at the last second and zip downstairs to the gym for a super quick little run.
total weekly mileage: 22.5 (running)
thoughts: this week’s mileage was up from last, which makes me happy, and although i’m still having some pretty painful/rough days where my leg just can’t take any weight, it’s getting better and recovering quicker. i definitely miss running in warm weather — even taking walks down south was amazing. my one full-body workout this week felt awesome, so i want to get back to doing 2 of those a week as well (plus more abs & push-ups).
running song suggestion of the week: “Too Much to Handle” by Great Good Fine Ok (who i’ve been loving for a while now and JUST found out are from my hometown area! so crazy)
