Training the week of June 7th t 13th looked like this:
- Sunday: 10k Loops for the Troops and restorative yoga
- Monday: suspension yoga
- Tuesday: 6k with 5 x 1 minute hill sprints
- Wednesday: strength with weights and hot yin yoga
- Thursday: 8k with mid-run tempo of 5:30 (kms 3 through 6)
- Friday: bodyweight strength
- Saturday: 2km hobble
Just a quick update today. My long run yesterday was a total bust. I started with a bit of a cramp in my left calf that quickly turned into a full-on charley horse. At first I thought it would loosen up once it got warmed up. Then I thought a bit of stretching might help. Then I tried a bit of extra compression (hero pose). Then I hobbled back to the car.
It was still a bit sore this morning, so I’m taking that as a hint that this is just going to be a weekend of relaxation and see how things are looking for Tuesday morning. Definitely not ideal, but if I’ve learned anything it that you have to accept these things as they come.
To compensate for the missed run, I laid on the couch and watched eight episodes of Orange is the New Black and binged on carbs (btw, Honey Stinger Lemon Waffles are delicious!). If I’m going to fall off the rails I may as well go all the way, right 🙂
Back on track today, though I’m skipping my planned run and just going to enjoy some restorative yoga. Have a good one!
