Oh boy this week was a tough one. A business trip on Monday and Tuesday plus extra work hours this week to make up for my Monday and Tuesday out of the office led to an incredibly busy week! I’m hoping that after this week my schedule will return a bit more to normal, and hopefully I can fall into a consistent work out pattern again for this training cycle! Here’s what the week looked like:
- Sunday: 40 mins pilates, 2:30 planks
- Monday: Rest- Travel
- Tuesday: Rest- Travel
- Wednesday: 20 minutes pilates
- Thursday: 5k race, 2.59 mile walk, 2:30 plank
- Friday: 1.28 mile walk, 25 minutes pilates, 2:30 plank
- Saturday: 25 minutes strength/circuit workout, 2:30 plank
I’m really happy to be including so much pilates in this training cycle! It’s helping to keep me stretched out and is strengthening muscles I need for running! I’m really enjoying it, and love that I can watch TV while doing it:) I’m also really happy about my run this week. I feel like I’m mentally more engaged in training and more excited when I hit the road!
Now it’s your turn to share! What did you accomplish or overcome this week? If you’ve done a 5k race before, which one was your favorite?
I do a lot of small local 5I runs. My favorite was probably the dirty dash, but we had a night run right before Christmas that was lot by luminarias. That was a great run!

I really want to come up and do the mini sometime as I lived in Indy for 22 years, my family is still there, and I was not a runner when I moved. I thought about it this year, but then realized it is just one week after my first marathon in over a year and decided against it. I guess I will have to live vicariously through you.
