I’m calling it preparation instead of training because I am not physically fit or committed enough to put in a full effort to train. I do want to be able to get through 13.1 miles without screaming for help so I am “preparing” each week!
TH: 3 mi untimed with stroller
F: 2 mi untimed with stroller
S: 5 mi untimed with Kara
Su: 20 min HIIT workout at home (5 x reverse lunge front kicks L & R, frog stamp pushups, full body crunch, squat jump cross body punches)
Weekly total: 10 miles, 20 min XT
All of my runs were done at an easy pace and enjoyable. On Thursday, I ran along the beach in Bay Head & Mantoloking and stopped halfway through the run to say hi to my mom and sister who were enjoying the beach! My first time on the beach this summer was in sneakers, WTF. It was also Jennie’s first beach visit (with many more to come)!
Sunday’s workout was really hard. This was the first time I did a push up since I was 36 weeks pregnant almost 5 months ago! It is Tuesday night and I am still really sore.
Overall, I am happy with the workouts I completed this week. I was sick last week so taking it easy was the right thing to do! I am traveling to North Carolina late Wednesday night and will be there until Sunday. I hope to get some runs in along the beach as well as one strength workout. I am really excited to try more bodyweight interval workouts from Nicole on Pumps & Iron!
8 more weeks until race day!
