I did my scheduled Tuesday training run this morning! It felt so good to get a legit training run in, even it was only an “easy 5 miles.” I warmed up on the stationary bike for 15 minutes, walked for just under 5 minutes on the treadmill and then began my run. A took it really easy with my pace because my hamstrings and calves were still a little tight from Sunday.
I certainly did wear my RunWild race shirt to the gym today! I really like this shirt, it is super comfortable and I love love love the colours. One of my gym crushes also did 5 miles on the treadmill beside me today… just with a weighted vest and running at 7:13 min/mile… but basically the same workout. We both watched SportCentre on da mills. I did another 0.25 mile walk at the end to cool down.
I made sure to do all of my physio exercises and tons of hamstring, calf, and glute stretches. I was exhausted yesterday and didn’t make it to hot yoga after work but I plan on going today. It is also cold today in Alberta so I will need to super humid and hot room to warm me up!
I should not be doing this on May 6. When I came out of the gym I had to SCRAPE ICE off of my vehicle. Ridiculous. You know what else is ridiculous, my chipped nail polish. Oops.
I am really glad I got to do an actual full distance training run today, even if it was a short and slow one. I am still going to run based on how I feel this week and I may not do my scheduled Yassos tomorrow or my tempo run on Friday but I will definitely at least try and run the scheduled distances or >60% of them! I may need to continue with the treadmill love if this weather continues!
What is the weather like where YOU are?!
