We had great plans to have a killer track workout this morning. We were planning on doing 3 sets of 4x400s. I had been thinking about doing this workout all week and I took my Monday and Tuesday super easy so that I would be ready to go fast today.
We did the warm-up and after we finished that we both knew it just wasn’t happening for us today. We were exhausted and realized that last week’s training really took it out of us. We decided that it would be smart to just go out on the roads for an 8 mile easy run. Much better. We all have days/weeks where our body just needs to have a break from speed.
I am finally in a place with my running where I realize that it is much more important to really pay attention to what your body is telling you than to stick to your plan perfectly. Hard to do when you are a perfectionist;) We even planned to change our Saturday tempo/long run a little bit to let us really recover before going hard again next week.
Every day after I do Brooke’s hair she grabs my blush brush to try and copy me when I put my make-up on. She is starting to copy everything I do and so I am trying to eat healthier foods in front of her so that she wants to copy that too.
My calves have been kind of achy lately and very tight. They aren’t ‘injured’ but I am all about preventing injuries by staying on top of things now. Josse gave them a deep tissue massage and then scraped them. Yes, it hurts really bad to get this done but it is SOOOO worth it when it is over and it always fixes the problem area for me.
I can’t stop with this lunch. I am turning orange because of the amount of sweet potatoes I consume lately.
This may be my first Throw Back Thursday post (yes, I know it is Wednesday but let’s pretend it’s not)… Brooke from exactly one year ago today.
How is your running feeling this week?
Any areas that are tight/bugging you when you run lately? What are you doing to fix it?
What was your lunch today?
