You’ll have to excuse my tardiness for this post. It was suppose to hit the blog yesterday, but for whatever reason, it was still sitting in my draft folder today when I logged in. As they say, better late than never.
Last week I scaled back from my Max 30 training to focus on my running. I have just two weeks left until my last half marathon of this season, so I really want to enjoy these last few weeks of training without worrying too much about how I’m doing with Max 30. I’m still enjoying it, but I miss the dedication and focus on running and don’t want to burn myself out. I’m starting the 21 Day Fix promptly after Iron Girl, so I kinda want to stay fresh for that as well.
My hubby was home for the early part of the week, so I was actually able to complete a couple runs on my own, which was very nice. I don’t know if it’s because I’ve been running so frequently with the double stroller, but my speed has gradually increased over the past two months. It could have something to do with the fact that i’m logging quite a few miles through these past half marathons that I’ve been running. Stay tuned for my Sarasota Half Marathon recap soon. I’m trying to get that out this week for you.
Monday 3/23 4 Miles – 3 with the single stroller and the last running solo. my daughter wanted to retire early, so I dropped her off at the house and took off to finish my training run.
Tuesday 3/24 Scheduled Rest Day
Wednesday 3/25 4 miles solo. this was a great run, except it was very hot! It literally went from the 60’s to the 80’s here in Florida. Mother Nature is cruel to us too!
Thursday 3/26 Max 30 Tabata Strength.
Friday 3/27 PiYo with foam rolling and stretching
Saturday 3/28 Supposed to log 7 miles, but I punked out in favor of an extra two hours of sleep. Baby boy woke me up a couple times that night and I just refused to trade sleep for mileage. We had planned a day at Busch Gardens for a friend’s birthday, so I logged 4-5 miles walking around the park carrying two little kids. <— that counts for something, huh?
Sunday 3/29 Foam Rolled and did PiYo
This week I’m carrying the same type of mentality with regard to Max 30 workouts. I’m planning to take it easy, roll and stretch, and log as many miles as I can . Hubby is traveling this week, so it looks like the kiddos are coming with me for the weekday runs, which I’m not really looking forward to, but I’ll have to suck it up either way.
What are your workouts looking like this week?
Do you ever struggle to complete your workouts when a spouse or caregiver isn’t able to help out?
How do you fit it in with the kids?
