Thurs, 2/4: 3.5 miles outside in the rain & 55 degrees. i’ll take that, thanks February.
Fri, 2/5: morning strength session: mostly upper body (free weights, push-ups, kettlebells, back row) and abs. there *might* have been a 1-mile run as well?
Sat, 2/6: outdoor run, 8 miles (3 solo, 5 with the boy); abs in gym
Sun, 2/7: 3 mile outdoor run (painful); push-ups & abs in gym –> tried something new, where the boy put a light on my back when i did push-ups. definitely felt that.
Mon, 2/8: total body strength session at the gym w/ boy: kettlebells, free weights, all the legs (box jumps, jump squats, regular squats, lunges with kettlebell, jumping lunges), abs
Tues, 2/9: ran 2 sloooow, painful treadmill miles, walked 1
Wed, 2/10: tbd tonight, but legs are soooooo sore that walking hurts, sooo we’ll see.
total weekly mileage (thus far): 17ish
thoughts: WHY am i so sore/in so much pain?! like, everything just hurts. maybe it’s the increase in lower body strength exercises; maybe my legs are just tired. i got a massage this week, i didn’t run high mileage, i foam rolled and stretched and walked when i needed…to no avail. they just are in pain. 😦
Tune of the week: “Roses” by The Chainsmokers ft. Rozes. i know it’s not new, but i still dig it and if it’s not on your running playlist, well, you should change that.
Your fave workout song lately?
Anyone else having running winter blues?
